HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Wallsend and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same survey.

If the Wallsend property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any substantial modifications, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it will give exhaustive analysis of the Wallsend property's state of repair as well as more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

For further advice you can get a Wallsend Survey Quote via our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a property built in the early 60s on very clay-rich soil. Is this going to cause problems? Will the Wallsend Home Survey look into this?

Whether a house was built in 1709 or 2009, factors as varied as wood boring insects or wet rot can create problems for an owner. Foundations dug into clay-rich soil, for example, can result in a number of issues. Buyers should be vigilant for signs of clay soil subsidence or heave. The real impact of this could reveal itself as anything from unremarkable warping of floorboards, to complete structural failure. There is a real benefit in booking a Wallsend surveyor to carry out your Home Survey, familiar with local soil composition, and who has witnessed the effects first-hand. In some more extreme cases, the building foundations may need extra support, but this can be costly.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The rat-trap bond walls on this converted apartment might need repairs. What are the possible consequences?

Brick-constructed apartments do benefit from many advantages. However, they can also experience considerable issues, from crypto-florescence to thermal movement. For example, diagonal cracking caused by ground movement and may require immediate attention. S F Bricklaying Services at Broad La, Pelsall, Walsall, WS4 1AD should give an estimate for any work. Call them on 07814 194608.

Brick-constructed property have been used across the country for centuries, leading to a number of approaches and materials. As an example, common bond, which is made up of stretchers (long faced bricks) with headers (the short face of the brick) every 6 courses or rows. It may be appropriate to renegotiate the price of a property if a survey reveals even superficial brick wall problems.

Conservation area

Are there any concerns I would be advised to consider if intending to buy a house in Wallsend near St Peters conservation area ?

St Peters is in a conservation area and has been classified as very bad by English Heritage, with medium vulnerability and improving. For further information visit their website or contact the conservation area administrator. There are over 9, 000 of conservation areas throughout the country that are designated and monitored by local councils. St Peters is designated by North Tyneside Metropolitan Borough Council at Quadrant The Silverlink North, Cobalt Business Park, North Tyneside, NE27 0BY. Contact 0345 2000 101.

A Building Surveyors are required by RICS to have local knowledge of local considerations and the relation may have with the home. Property values will be significantly higher which is down to them resisting change.

RICS surveyors are expected report whether the building is/might be is designated and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Wallsend Homebuyer Report will recommend additional enquiries are conducted during the legal process. Unauthorised changes that do not have Local Authority approval will also be noted in the survey but these are really more a concern for the solicitor.
