About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Dunnington

HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Dunnington and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Dunnington property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any major works, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Dunnington property's state of repair and it includes advice on structural defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

My partner spotted signs of pests in the dining room. Will a chartered surveyor look into this?

Dunnington properties are not usually impacted by serious cases of pest problems, but buying without any professional advice on the issue is not recommended. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can put your health in danger and affect its value. It may not be obvious that a property is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked, for example, cockroaches hide during the day, in light-fittings, beneath cracks in floor tiles or behind appliances. You may not spot them until moving in. Remedies to bug or other pest issues can include traps. The Dunnington surveyor may include notes on any signs of vermin or other pests in their report. It is, however, advisable that specific worries you may have be raised ASAP.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are buying an old farmhouse. Will repairs costs be higher?

Vernacular architecture can concern buyers, and Dunnington homes built with traditional methods can be a chore to upkeep. You should bear in mind that specialist expertise may be needed, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional building materials.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The rat-trap bond walls on this Georgian house appears to have several cracks - what should we do? What impact do Dunnington environmental conditions have?

Dunnington brick-walled residences can show signs of considerable issues, such as DPC failure. An especially severe issue is sulphate attack. This results if a cement mortared-wall suffers a prolonged period of damp. It is effectively impossible to treat.

To arrange a quote for repairs, contact a local specialist, e.g. Newstyle Building Services at 9 Kingsway, Swinton, Manchester, M27 4JU on 0161-736 8922.

Other aspects of a property which may feature decorative include ornamental chimneys, particularly common in Tudor-period property. Contact a specialist for more information if this is of interest.
