HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Wooler and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is basically the same the same.

If the Wooler property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out an extension, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it will give comprehensive details of the Wooler property's general condition as well as advice on structural defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Other external areas of the property

In the HomeBuyer Report, what will 'E9 - Other' include?

RICS created the HomeBuyer Report to give house purchasers a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy, and avoid potentially unfamiliar technical language. Colour coded ratings are used to communicate to what extent each defect requires attention. In some cases, an element covered under Section E may be marked as NI, or 'Not inspected'. RICS have mandated a specific format for the HomeBuyer Report to aid the creation of a useful and comprehensive report for both surveyors and home buyers. As a result, some sections may not be relevant to every property, such as reporting on the condition of the roof of a ground floor flat.

An example of this is nadequate end bearing in joists. This category is used for external elements that require reporting that do not fit elsewhere in Section E.

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller's agent said there could be loose asbestos ceiling material affecting the property. What is asbestos and is it hazardous?

Asbestos is a deleterious material. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and may be in building materials e.g. painted over ceilings. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has a range of useful characteristic fire retarding qualities and it may be found in lagging. Technically all forms including white ( Chrysotile) are dangerous and may lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods.

Should you find asbestos, you should be careful never to remove it and professional advice must be taken immediately. Surveyors cannot tell you whether there is asbestos on a Wooler survey. Your Wooler surveyor should mention potential asbestos and will recommend professional testing.

Stone block wall damage

We are buying a Wooler property with Hopton Wood stone walls. Are there specific issues to consider?

There are several of defects and issues associated with stone-built property. Faults common to poorly maintained stone walls can include algae. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay. These walls will need frequent upkeep.

Ask you surveyor for details, but the report may specify cleaning loose fragments and dirt before repointing or applying any treatment or fixative, to slow decay.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Doddington Quarry, Doddington, Wooler, Northumberland, NE71 6AN, which quarries Sandstone, for details. Call 01629 653000 for more information.
