HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Northumberland Heath and of the 3, which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same.

If the Northumberland Heath property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any works or an extension, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Northumberland Heath property's general condition and it includes advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact may wet weather have on a Northumberland Heath house?

Despite England's reputation for wet weather the effect which high levels of rainfall has on Northumberland Heath buildings is not given enough thought. If you have only seen the property in the Summer, defects may not have been obvious. Poor drainage can lead to cracked foundations and subsidence.

In most cases, issues with rainwater goods are usually easy to repair, if identified early. If not cleared out regularly, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The rat-trap bond walls on this converted apartment looks in bad shape - what should we do?

Brick-walled residential property in Northumberland Heath can be affected by diverse problems, such as crypto-florescence. For example, rapidly deteriorating cement mortar, caused by sulphate attack. This may require outright demolition of the wall, if discovered and may require immediate attention. Contact Celtic Brickwork for a repairs estimate at 07577 918822 or 73 Alma Rd, Maesteg, CF34 9AN.

For buyers with an eye for detail, less used styles of brick course include sailor bond is a decorative bond featuring vertically oriented bricks with their widest faces parallel to the wall, but it is strongly advised that professional advice be sought prior to attempting repairs.

Building Surveys on houses

Do I need to order the full structural survey when looking into a derelict forties cottage near Northumberland Heath rather than a HomeBuyer Report?

Now often and incorrectly referred to as the Structural Survey by many home buyers, it is no longer available and this most technical survey has been given a new moniker by RICS and the proper name is now the Building Survey. Commission the Building Survey for the house outlined. The HomeBuyer Report is appropriate if investigating a post 1950s unmodified Northumberland Heath house of standard building materials. You should be aware of some limitations are integral with the survey because a chartered surveyor wont be able to (unless safe to do so) open up the structure of the house nor can they inspect any part that could risk personal injury.
