About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Corbridge

HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Corbridge and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Corbridge property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations on the Corbridge property, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Corbridge property's state of repair as well as advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

What's the danger of flooding in Corbridge. Can a HomeBuyer Report search for water damage, or if neighbour's houses have been affected?

Recent conflict between insurers has the government has caused a great deal of uncertainty. Those planning to buy in affected areas should weigh up their exposure. A flood risk alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst. An awareness of characteristics of the Corbridge area likely to affect the house also enables the chartered surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a HomeBuyer Report if the chartered surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the house is at risk.

Timber damage by insect larvae

A local warned us about insects affecting some homes. How do we investigate further?

Questions regarding the infestation of a Corbridge home may not be raised during the conveyancing. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. Signs may not be obvious. As an example, cockroaches are nocturnal, and challenging to eradicate. Species common to the UK, such as the German Cockroach, are small, and breed rapidly in moist conditions. This makes them both hard to spot, and to treat successfully. Treatment for bug or other pest issues may include traps.

English Heritage

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Is clay soil an issue in Corbridge? Can your Building Survey consider this?

Clay soil-related issues can work slowly over many years, or can arise without warning after a bout of extreme weather or flooding. Issues range from groundwater level variations to soil swelling, both of which can put a house's foundations under great strain. There may be little evidence of underlying defects, such as cracked plaster. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Corbridge, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the house. Small areas of dry soil can just as easily warp foundations, so care must be taken to ensure the overall moisture level of the clay soil around the foundations stays consistent.
