Home Buyers Survey in Blaydon On Tyne

HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Blaydon On Tyne and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Blaydon On Tyne property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make major works on the Blaydon On Tyne property, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Blaydon On Tyne property's general condition along with an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

We have made an offer for a house with a converted attic in Blaydon On Tyne , and we are wary of potential roofing issues. What will our property surveyor in Blaydon On Tyne look for?

Properties in Blaydon On Tyne with no other major issues could feature roofing problems. Every element should be checked, e.g. decking. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in Blaydon On Tyne, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the surveyors will look for a range of signs, including holes or cracks in the waterproof layer.

Roof repairs need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A building survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will be facing. Prior to exchange, it may be worth sourcing from a Blaydon On Tyne roofing specialist a quote for any suggested work.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I have heard that clay soil can cause problems for homes in Blaydon On Tyne. Will the Property Survey consider this? Does the chartered surveyor give maintenance advice?

If not monitored appropriately, the make up of the soil surrounding a home's foundations can create difficulties. Given the moisture content does have such a great affect of clay-rich soil, owners should be aware that defects can arise if environmental conditions change. The real impact of this could reveal itself as anything from unremarkable small cracks in the drawing room wall, to complete structural failure.

Taking precautions, such as avoiding planting trees too near the house, and pruning where necessary, can make long term maintenance easier, and keep repair costs manageable. If soil water levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is also important. Your surveyor may be able to offer practical suggestions as to how this can be achieved.

Landfill site near home

What should I be wary of if buying a property in the region a rubbish landfill

Sites used for landfill take many forms e.g. domestic rubbish. Understandably, no one ideally wants to live near one (80% of people live near one). Worries include complex organic chemicals. Health issues for example congenital birth defects have been associated with landfill sites .

Surveyors in Blaydon On Tyne will notice structural issues connected with the site. Your conveyancer will carry out environmental searches of the Environmental Agency data sets and Gateshead Local Authority and give you the results of the search .

Building Surveys on houses

What are the benefits for doing a full structural survey in Blaydon On Tyne rather than a HomeBuyer Report?

Structural Surveys no longer exist anymore and the Building Survey has now superseded it. Go for the RICS Building Survey in the case of the house described. A HomeBuyer Report has enough detail if investigating a 60 year old or less Blaydon On Tyne house built out of typical construction materials and methods. Bear in mind that some survey no go areas come with a property survey as a surveyor will not be able to open up the structure of the house for example, or comment on the regulatory compliance of heating systems.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

What is subsidence? What are the risks, and what can be done to fix subsidence if subsidence is found during the Home Buyers Survey?

Subsidence is movement in a house's foundations. In most cases, subsidence can be repaired more easily than you might expect.

Subsidence can result from several issues, some common throughout Blaydon On Tyne. The roots of [trees and bushes], for example, damaging the structure, particularly in clay soil as moisture is taken up from the ground by plant life. In severe temperatures, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence. This is not usually a concern in England and Wales however.

Learning the cause of any subsidence should be the first priority.This need not be expensive.Though tree roots are often the cause, removal of this plant life may make the problem worse, so professional advice should be sought. Your surveyor may suggest that you talk to an arborist to find out the best cause of action if trees or other plant life is the suspected cause.
