HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Yarm On Tees and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Yarm On Tees property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make an extension on the property, you should you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Yarm On Tees property's condition along with advice on structural defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Defective door frame

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in Yarm On Tees what might a green light rating mean for 'E6 - Outside doors' ?

All doors leading outside are checked, but will not force open any without keys. Generally, where doors have obviously been replaced, relevant issues are considered. This can include overall quality, whether the frame provides adequate support, and building regulations have been met (e.g. FENSA and Certass). A door frame which has been installed back-to-front would be reported here, for example. The format of the RICS HomeBuyer Report is clear and easy to read, unlike some more complex survey reports. Red, amber and green ratings give property purchasers indicate the impact on the property individual defects may have. Elements of the Yarm On Tees house which the surveyor has determined to be in a good state of repair are awarded a condition rating of 1, but regular upkeep may still be required. Some areas may be marked as 'Not inspected'. The HomeBuyer Report has a standard format, which the surveyor will complete according to the nuances of the particular house or flat, omitting sections as necessary.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Poor roof maintenance caused problems in a house we used to own, and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. What does a Yarm On Tees property surveyor check when the building is surveyed?

Houses in Yarm On Tees with no other major issues could feature roofing problems, such as. From collar ties to eaves, every element of the roof will be taken into account. Your chartered surveyors may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

The expense of replacing rotten rafters or soffits, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.

Stone block wall damage

I am intending to put an offer in on a Yarm On Tees house constructed Hopton Wood stone. Are there any problems that need to be investigated?

Britain's range of geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Ham Hill Middle Bed Limestone to Portland Fancy Beach Limestone. Buyers should also be aware that the potential severity of issues like efflorescence will vary with the particular type of stone. The two main forms of mortared stone wall construction found in Yarm On Tees are regular and irregular.

Dry stone construction is used in garden walls and field boundaries, but is rarely employed for inhabited structures. Both regular or irregular stone can be mortared with lime-based mortar, and may need repointing. Guidelines for better stone wall upkeep include removal of invasive plants, such as ivy. 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.
