HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Tyne And Wear and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is essentially the same survey.

If the Tyne And Wear property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any works or an extension, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, but it will give you comprehensive details of the Tyne And Wear property's state of repair as well as including more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Tyne And Wear, and think we saw signs of an infestation in the hallway. What can we do?

Questions regarding the infestation of a Tyne And Wear building may not be raised during the conveyancing. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months, often introduced to a home via luggage after a trip abroad, bed bugs can be extremely hard to remove. Treatment for vermin may include removal or excision of affected timber.

Stone block wall damage

Can structures built with stone cause problems for the buyer? Which major defects should we consider, and what does the survey cover?

From Totternhoe Limestone to Plumpton Red Lazonby Sandstone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. The problems which can plague poorly maintained stone vary considerably. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay. 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, limestone can quickly deteriorate. Guidelines for better stone wall upkeep include repointing of loose or crumbling mortar. If you are planning to renovate, consider that a stone matching service is operated by the British Geological Survey. Locally mined or quarried stone may also be available.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Do we need to investigate guttering, and does our building survey mention it?

Climate change is regularly in the news. However heavy rain and the effect it can have on houses in Tyne And Wear are often overlooked. If you have investigated the property you intend to purchase in dry conditions, obvious defects may be harder to find.

Signs that drainage are under performing include rusted iron elements, and may lead to overflowing or blocked sewage. Fortunately, problems with drains are usually easy to fix if dealt with quickly. However, if the drains are disregarded, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair.
