About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Filey

HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Filey and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Filey property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out significant alterations, you should you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap however it does give an in-depth analysis of the Filey property's state of repair in addition to advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does the Filey surveyor inspect the safety of the gas mains supply?

Roof defects identified during a survey

The seller warned us that access to the attic could be problematic - What does a Filey property surveyor pay attention to during the survey?

This is a common concern for house purchasers with a roofing 'horror story' from a previous home. A large number of properties will suffer difficulties with the roof. From the trusses to the valley gutters, the status of the whole roof should be reviewed. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in Filey, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the house surveyors will look for a range of signs, including badly installed felting.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Filey, but it is a health and safety necessity. A contractor with a good reference should be able to assist with a quote.

Are there any potential pitfalls we would need to check out when intending to buy a flat in Filey inside a conservation area ?

Surveyors in Filey need to possess sufficient knowledge of relevant local area issues and the connection they have with the property.

However many of them are falling into have fallen into disrepair for example - the huge increase in street clutter

Stone block wall damage

We are buying a residential property with Slate walls. What issues should we be aware of, and what does the survey cover?

If left in a poor state of repair, stone walls will suffer from structural issues caused by factors including delaminated or cracked paintwork. Problems which impact stone-built Filey properties can vary greatly, with issues like delaminated or cracked paintwork being quote common. Irregular stone walls are found throughout the county, and can require more care and attention that regular, brick-like stone walls due greater impact the weather can have on exposed mortar. Repair advice often includes clearing of ivy-like plant life and weeds.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Murray Brown & Son, Filey Road, Flixton, Scarborough, North Yorkshire, YO11 3UF for details. Call 01723 890516 for more information.
