HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Sunderland and which is 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 Sunderland property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make significant alterations, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, but it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Sunderland property's condition in addition to advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

For more details you can get a Sunderland Home Survey Quote online or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Stone block wall damage

Will a property in Sunderland with stone walls generate high upkeep costs? What problems should we be aware of?

Buyers of a Grade I listed building should consider that 'sympathetic' maintenance may be required. These restrictions are often rigorously enforced, and the defects impacting a type of stone will vary according to its properties. Bear in mind that some defects will affect regular or irregularly cut stone equally, whereas others will not, and may require a local surveyors expertise to identify. Buyers should consider that stone can have a great effect on the long-term viability of a property or extension, resulting in higher repair costs in future. For example, slate is more damp resistant than many other forms of stone, as is granite. These walls will need frequent upkeep.

Ask you surveyor for details, but the report may specify repointing of loose or crumbling mortar.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Berth 4 Great Yarmouth Docks, Berth 4, South Deans Road, Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, Nr30 3Qb Greenwells Quay, South Docks, Barracks Street, Sunderland, SR1 2BU, which quarries Crushed Rock, for details.

If you a undertaking repairs, and require matching stone, speak to a Sunderland specialist. For example, Blazes of 3 Tunstall Rd, Sunderland, SR2 7AP may help.

Asbestos roof tiles

I suspect there might be asbestos coatings spayed on beams in existence at the house. What are the issues with asbestos?

Asbestos is a deleterious fibrous structured mineral. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White are often building materials for example cement sheet. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has characteristic including tensile strength qualities and it may be found in cement for example. The main origins of asbestos were the US.

All forms are ultimately dangerous and may lead to lung cancer or pleural disease following prolonged exposure. In fact inhaling a one fibre is not fatal.

If discovered, one must be careful never to displace it and professional advice should be sought as soon as possible. Getting rid of asbestos will be costly must always be completed by experts. Surveyors will not test for asbestos on a Sunderland HomeBuyer report. Surveyors will mention suspected asbestos and will recommend professional testing.

For advice on what steps to take with suspected asbestos, Asbestos Removals Consultants Ltd, Pallion Shipyard, Pallion New Rd, South Hylton, Sunderland, SR4 6WE may be able to help - Telephone: 07814 199456

Timber damage by insect larvae

My friend spotted signs of bugs in the attic - Is a HomeBuyer Report advisable?

Any questions about pests affecting a Sunderland home may not be asked by the lawyer.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can seriously reduce the value of a property. An affected home may not always be easy to identify, for example, skin irritation or spots of blood on bedsheets may indicate the presence of bed bugs. Treatment for insect infestation may include removal or excision of affected timber.
