About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Staindrop

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Staindrop and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Staindrop property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make alterations, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it will offer exhaustive analysis of the Staindrop property's state of repair as well as including information on defects and maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does the qualified surveyor check the state of the gas mains supply?

Your local surveyor will visually look at the easily accessible parts of the gas system. The surveyor will look at whether the mains is connected as part of the Staindrop survey, as well as gas associated fittings like the condition of gas piping in loft spaces. Your Staindrop qualified RICS surveyor will not remove the gas fittings nor will the surveyor do any tests on the system. Most people are aware that gas is potentially deadly and if there are any concerns about gas fittings, contact a gas safe engineer.

The regulations require landlords must to complete appliance and installation inspections annually and punishments for failure to comply are harsh .

Conservation area

Will there be any concerns I would need to look out for when planning to buy a house in Staindrop near a conservation area ?

There are 9, 300 of conservation areas in England and Wales which are governed by local councils.

Home Buyers Surveys in Staindrop must have local knowledge of relevant local area factors and any effect may have with the property and its value. Property Prices will likely be higher because of them being in their original state. However a growing number have fallen into a state of neglect e.g. ugly satellite dishes

Property surveyors are trained to inform you whether the location could be in a conservation area and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Staindrop Homebuyer Report will recommend suitable questions are carried out by your legal adviser. Unconsented changes to the building may also be noted in the survey, however these should be concern for the solicitor.

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing a 17th Century cottage in Staindrop. Will the building's age be a problem?

Some buyers in Staindrop have looked at purchasing a unique or characterful property. A building's age, however, can sometimes be an issue, and Staindrop homes showcasing traditional methods can be a drain to maintain. You should consider that specialist expertise may be needed. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of a home in one of Staindrop's conservation areas. This may mean long-term upkeep. If you have doubts, speak to your chartered surveyor for further advice.
