HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Northumberland and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Northumberland property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it will offer a thorough analysis of the Northumberland property's state of repair as well as including more detailed advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will vermin affect the purchase price of a house in Northumberland. Do we need a chartered surveyor?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. Regrettably, infestations can be very expensive to resolve and put your health in danger. It may not be obvious that a property is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked, for example, woodworm, or larvae of the common furniture beetle, may be identified after finding neat small holes in wood, accompanied by piles of wood dust beneath. Remedies can be disruptive to residents, and may require you to move out during the work in extreme cases. Rather than pulling out, it may be possible to agree a reduction in the purchase price to cover the cost of remedy.

Traditionally built property

I am buying a coast house. What should be budgeted for repairs?

Many buyers would be interested in owning a old, characterful home one day. For traditionally-built Northumberland property, age, however, can create issues for homeowners. Buildings featuring traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be challenging to maintain. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional building materials, which could mean long-term upkeep.Mention this to your surveyor for more information. Built in around 1543, Aydon Castle in Northumberland is an example of a traditional Post Medieval-period kitchen.

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will my Property Surveyor consider on a roughcast rendered (stucco) Victorian detached house in Northumberland which we wish to buy.

Stucco (sometimes called pargetting) is really just a sort of flat finish render. Usually it is applied to brick hardens to form a smooth stone like appearance. The effect is highly beautiful and is found on Victorian and Georgian houses. it can be prone to defect and Surveyors sometimes discover any number of problems such as trapped moisture resulting in the surface breaking

Another example of problems associated with stucco may involve sulphate attack from sulphates or salts absorbed from brickwork. Fixing problems may be dear as the skills are becoming more difficult to find.
