About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Barnard Castle

HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Barnard Castle and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Barnard Castle property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out an extension on the property, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it will offer comprehensive details of the Barnard Castle property's general condition as well as including information on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

I suspect said there is a possibility of a white asbestos toilet cistern at the property. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a carcinogenic fibrous structured mineral. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White and they were commonly used in building materials e.g. coatings spayed on beams.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has very good tensile strength properties, it may be found in cement sheet. Technically all forms are ultimately deadly and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. If discovered, one must be careful never to move it. Professional advice must be taken immediately.

Surveyors cannot verify the presence of asbestos on a survey. However they will report on possible asbestos risks and should recommend relevant tests.

Conservation area

Are there any potential pitfalls I would be advised to on guard for if planning to buy a converted house in Barnard Castle near a conservation area?

There are over 9, 000 official conservation areas in the UK which are governed by local authorities. Your surveyor must possess relevant knowledge of relevant local area factors and the relation may have on the building. Values will be inflated due to them being in their original state. However many conservation areas have fallen into poor condition e.g. the huge increase in street clutter

Surveyors will inform you if the house might be is designated and Section I of your Barnard Castle Homebuyer Report will advise further investigations are carried out by your legal adviser. Unapproved developments to the property may also be advised in your survey and these will be investigated in more detail by your lawyer.
