About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Bellingham

HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Bellingham and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

If the Bellingham property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give a more detailed analysis of the Bellingham property's condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

What warnings would the surveyor give for houses built with Diagonal bond walls?

Brick-built Bellingham flats feature several advantages compared to other building materials. Unfortunately, they also be affected by distinct issues. These can include inadequate damp-proofing or spalling. An especially severe issue is patchwork cracks caused by tie failure. This cracking may only be visible internally, and is accompanied by an irregular wall surface. Contact Welton Bruce for a repairs estimate at 01376 570393 or 5 Observer Way, Kelvedon, Colchester, CO5 9NZ.

Bellingham home purchasers may need to consider that number of popular courses and methods may be found throughout England and Wales. E.g. common bond, which is made up of stretchers (long faced bricks) with headers (the short face of the brick) every 6 courses or rows.

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a Bellingham home buyers survey inquire into flooding damage?

Burst dams, poor drainage and tidal activity could all cause major flooding damage and the value of a property can decrease if in an exposed area, even if it has never flooded.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures. Details relating to signs of flooding may be reported in Section J of the HomeBuyer Report. The building surveyor may ask the vendor or agent if the residential property has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.

The alert level for the River North Tyne and its tributaries from source to the confluence with the River Tyne, near to Bellingham of 'No warnings', was recently set by the Environment Agency on 12 Jun 2012.
