About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Murton

HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Murton and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Murton property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any alterations, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Murton property's state of repair and it includes information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

A Murton builder commented that there could be powdery asbestos soffit boards situated in the ground floor flat. What is asbestos and does the survey look at this?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous material. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White are often building materials e.g. insulation. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good resistance to electrical damage properties, it may be found in Fuse box for example. .

All forms are pernicious and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered never to displace asbestos and professional advice should be sought immediately.

Surveyors cannot verify the presence of asbestos on a Murton HomeBuyer report. They will report on possible asbestos and should offer advice.

Landfill site near home

What should we be fearful of if buying a flat close to a landfill site

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes including industrial waste material disposal. Of course nobody would want to live near one (80% of people live near one). Concerns include bacterial decomposition resulting in methane. Potential health issues like cancer have been associated with landfill sites .

Homebuyer reports in Murton will note any structural issues linked to the site. Your conveyancing solicitor will conduct environmental searches of the Environmental Agency data sets as well as County Durham Local Authority and advise you .
