About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Stocksfield

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Stocksfield and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same.

If the Stocksfield property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any major works, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it will give you a thorough analysis of the Stocksfield property's general condition as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller has mentioned there are asbestos ceiling boards in the maisonette. What is asbestos, is it dangerous and does the home survey in Stocksfield report on it?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous material. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and are often found in the building materials e.g. lagging. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has characteristic heat resistance qualities and it may be found in insulation. Technically all forms are ultimately deadly and might lead to lung cancer or pleural disease if inhaled over sustained periods.

If discovered, one must be careful on no account to displace it and professional advice should be sought urgently. Surveyors will not verify the presence of asbestos as part of the survey. They will mention the risk of asbestos risks and should recommend professional testing.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

What warnings would you give for houses built from Dutch bond brick? Does render make a difference?

Brick property in Stocksfield will show signs of a number of issues, from crypto-florescence to horizontal cracking. Where relevant, these will be discussed in the survey report along with recommendations. An especially severe issue is frost damage, which over time will cause bricks and mortar to disintegrate entirely. For more information, contact a local builder, Graham J S of 22 Essex Rd, Southport, PR8 4LZ on 01704 566309.

For example, sailor bond or Flemish bond may be used in the construction of property in Stocksfield. Contact a specialist for more information if this is of interest.
