HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same.

If the Wolviston property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any significant alterations, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it does offer comprehensive details of the Wolviston property's condition as well as information on defects and maintenance options .

House Prices

I intend to acquire a house in TS22, being marketed for £133, 792. What factors will Wolviston chartered surveyor allow for when conducting a home buyers survey ?

There are a great number of factors which could have a bearing on property values ranging from whether correct consents are in place to the home having hard to change bad taste parts. It is useful to analyse house prices achieved in the area for comparable properties.

The average house price registered at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £159, 992, which is £26, 200 more than the amount you are intending to pay (£156, 940 was the blended house/flat average). 28, Springwell Close, Billingham, Stockton-On-Tees, Stockton-On-Tees, TS23 3FB a detached property was sold in the last 3 months for £155, 000 .

The only way for home buyers to get an accurate property valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation by default.

The chartered surveyor should visit the building as well as allowing for the long list of location related influences that can affect the value of property.

Stone block wall damage

We are purchasing an 1890s home with stone walls. What should we look in to?

From Spynie Sandstone to Grey Catcastle Sandstone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. Problems which impact stone-built Wolviston properties can vary greatly, with issues like weathered stone being quote common. 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, granite is more water resistant that most other stones. Maintenance tips include resolution of underlying problems, like damp, before work on the wall starts.

The sheer breadth of varying stone materials can make it difficult for purchasers to correctly identify the particular stone used in the building of a home. Quarries in Wolviston should be able to supply local stone.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Able Wharf, Billingham Reach Industrial Estate, Haverton Hill Road, Billingham, Cleveland, TS23 1PX, which quarries Marine Sand & Gravel, for details. Call 01642 370514 for more information.

Roof defects identified during a survey

The person in the flat below mentioned that the had been issues with amateur repairs - What does the property surveyor in Wolviston look into during the survey?

This is frequently addressed by chartered surveyors. A large number of properties could feature issues with the roof. From ceiling joists to trusses, every element of the roof must be reviewed. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in Wolviston, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the chartered surveyors will look for a range of signs, including badly installed felting.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Wolviston, but it is a health and safety necessity. A roofing contractor in Wolviston with good feedback can provide a quote.
