About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Alnmouth

HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Alnmouth and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Alnmouth property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works on the property, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Alnmouth property's general condition along with an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The brick chimney on this Edwardian property is badly worn - what should we do?

Brick-constructed houses in Alnmouth demonstrate several benefits, but they can also be subject to considerable issues, such as crumbling mortar. For instance, thermal or other movement. Often vertical cracks appear above the level of the DPC, running the full height of the wall, where this seasonal expansion and contraction occurs and should be taken very seriously. Swingler Lee at Unit 9 Lyttleton Rd, Northampton, NN5 7ET should give an estimate for any work. Call them on 01604 753358.

One example is running, or stretcher, bond. The apparent simplicity of brick repairs compared to plumbing or rewiring can lead to a DIY effort making a situation worse. Seek advice before undertaking such work, and do not disregard your surveyors advice.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying a property but are worried about bugs. Should we get a house surveyor?

Houses will often be free of major pests. However, if you do have specific concerns, you should seek advice. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. It may not be obvious that a property is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. As an example, cluster, or swarming flies, are often found in lofts and can be a serious, seasonal annoyance if not treated. Treatment for pest problems may include professional cleaning and removal of infected furniture. Your Alnmouth surveyor may report on signs of infestation.

Landfill site near home

What should I be aware of if buying a maisonette close to a rubbish landfill

Landfill Sites take many forms including commercial refuse disposal. No one really wants to live near one (80% of people live under 2km away from one). Risks include leaking underground tanks from petrol stations for example .

Homebuyer reports in Alnmouth will find structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your conveyancer will commission environmental searches of the British Geological databases as well as Alnwick Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .
