Home Buyers Survey in Bishop Auckland

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Bishop Auckland and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same survey.

If the Bishop Auckland property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out substantial modifications, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This option is less cheap but it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Bishop Auckland property's state of repair and it includes advice on defects and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

What warnings would a Bishop Auckland property surveyor give for a 90s house built from brick walls?

Brick-built Bishop Auckland properties demonstrate several benefits compared to other building materials. Unfortunately, they also suffer from several common problems, ranging from horizontal cracking to frost damaged pointing. For example, thermal movement, particularly on longer walls and may require immediate attention. For more information, contact a local builder, Hotchkiss Steve of 43 Northville Rd, Bristol, BS7 0RQ on 0117-979 2106.

Brick-constructed property feature in construction throughout Bishop Auckland, leading to a selection of different courses and brick making techniques. For example, rowlock, which is often found at the top of a wall.
