About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Dore

HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Dore and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Dore property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any works or an extension, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Dore property's condition along with advice on structural defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should I be concerned about when buying a maisonette close to a rubbish dump

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste including inert rubbish. Nobody would want to live near one (most people do live near one). Concerns might include chemicals like dioxins. Potential health concerns like gut problems have been associated to landfill sites .

Building Surveys and valuations in Dore will note any structural problems connected with the landfill. Your conveyancer will conduct conveyancing and environmental searches of the Environmental Agency database in addition to Sheffield Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We are buying in Dore and are looking for a home built with brick walls. What recommendations will the surveyor make? What impact do Dore environmental conditions have?

Brick-constructed structures in Dore do benefit from many advantages compared to other building materials, but they can also be subject to both minor and serious issues. An especially severe issue is diagonal cracks which widen as they move upwards. These may result from ground movement, or where a timber element of the wall has rotted away. A & J (City) Ltd at Pot Kiln Chase, Gestingthorpe, Halstead, CO9 3BH should give an estimate for any work. Call them on 01787 462110.

For buyers with an eye for detail, less used styles of brick course include Scottish bond features five courses (rows) of long-oriented bricks then one row of short faced bricks, before repeating the pattern. It may be appropriate to renegotiate the price of a property if a survey reveals even superficial brick wall problems.
