About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Boldon Colliery

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should we select a RICS Level 2 Survey, Full Structural Survey or RICS Level 3 Survey on a property in Boldon Colliery and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a RICS Level 3 Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Boldon Colliery property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you intend to carry out any major works on the Boldon Colliery property, RICS advise you book a RICS Level 3 Survey. This option is not as cheap however it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Boldon Colliery property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should I be worried about when buying a property close to a landfill site

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste e.g. inert refuse. Of course nobody wants to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Risks include heavy metals. Health concerns such as gut problems have been associated with landfill sites .

Boldon Colliery surveyors will find structural defects linked to the landfill. Your solicitor will conduct conveyancing and environmental searches of the British Geological database in addition to South Tyneside Local Authority and advise you .

Gas flame

Will the local surveyor look into the state of repair of the gas appliances?

A RICS chartered surveyor will locate and visually examine any accessible parts of the system. This will include gas heaters as part of the survey, as well as gas associated fittings like fireplaces. Any gas fittings won't be taken off. The gas system won't be tested at all. Most people are aware that gas is potentially deadly, should there be any concerns relating to gas installations, call a gas engineer.

Conservation area

Will there be any potential pitfalls I need to look out for when intending to buy a period property in Boldon Colliery in conservation area, particularly with regards to property values?

There are 9, 300 official conservation areas in England and Wales which are designated by the local council. Surveyors in Boldon Colliery need to have local knowledge of local factors and any connection may have on the home and its value. House prices tends to be enhanced as a result of them being in their original state. However a growing number are falling into a state for example - ugly satellite dishes

Property surveyors will tell you if the planned purchase could be within a conservation area and Section I of the RICS Level 2 Survey will advise suitable questions are conducted during the legal process. Unapproved adjustments to the property will also be noted but these are really more a concern for your legal representative.

Traditionally built property

I am buying a coast house in Boldon Colliery. What effect will the building's thatched roof have on maintenance?

The age of a structure can create issues for homeowners, and Boldon Colliery structures built using traditional methods can be unexpectedly hard to repair. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of Boldon Colliery listed buildings. This may mean expensive ongoing repairs.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Can clay soil foundations create issues? I am buying a property in Boldon Colliery. Will the Boldon Colliery Property Survey look into this?

Clay soil can create several issues for property owners. Issues range from shrinking of clay soil to soil movement, both of which can put a property's foundations under great strain. The composition of clay soil varies greatly, with some areas being more susceptible to clay soil subsidence than others, but the effects can be very similar. .

If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Boldon Colliery property's foundations, leading to bowing, cracks and severe structural damage. A Boldon Colliery surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. In some more extreme cases, the building foundations may need extra support, but this can be costly.
