HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Widdrington and of the 3, which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same.

If the Widdrington property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey instead. This option is less cheap however it will give an in-depth analysis of the Widdrington property's general condition along with information on defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

What's the danger of flooding in Widdrington. Can a home buyers survey search for indications of flooding?

Flooding has become a major issue, not least because last year was the second wettest on record. Both buyers and home owners in areas at risk of flooding are right to be worried. It is strongly recommended that the property is protected, before flood damage occurs. In addition, the Home Buyers Survey may make recommendations for repair work or improved flood protection.Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. the use of lime-based plaster on walls. Also included on Environment Agency's flood warning are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I am looking for Sussex bond maintenance tips - can a Widdrington surveyor assist? Will it make a difference if render is applied?

Widdrington property with brick walls can be subject to both minor and serious issues, ranging from spalling to inadequate damp-proofing. For instance, rusted ties (this decay can be accelerated by black ash mortar often found in older properties). This expansion of the ties as they rust causes horizontal cracks leading to structural issues and should be taken very seriously. VEG Services should be able to assist with a maintenance quote. Contact them at 029 2073 6195 or 61 Pant Glas, Cardiff, CF23 7EW.

Buyers in Widdrington should consider that a range of techniques have been a feature of house construction in this country for 100s of years. This being the case, upkeep may not always be straightforward.

Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.

Landfill site near home

What should I be concerned about when buying a home near to a rubbish landfill

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste e.g. industrial waste material disposal. Nobody really wants to live near one (most people do live under 2km away from one). Risks might include bacterial decomposition resulting in methane. Health concerns for example spina bifida have been linked to landfill sites .

Building Surveys and valuations in Widdrington will consider structural issues connected with the site. Your legal representative will commission conveyancing and environmental searches of the British Geological data sets as well as Northumberland Local Authority and give you the results of the search .
