Home Buyers Survey in Haltwhistle

HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Haltwhistle and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is basically the same the same survey.

If the Haltwhistle property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, you should you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it will give comprehensive details of the Haltwhistle property's condition as well as advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

What should we consider when purchasing a house built in around 1740 in Haltwhistle? Will the age of the property be a concern?

A property's age can be a cause of concern for would-be buyers. Haltwhistle homes constructed with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be challenging to maintain. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary. Construction materials, such as locally-quarried stone, may also need to be sourced. If you have doubts, speak to your property surveyor for further advice.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

What warnings would the surveyor give for a residence built from Dutch bond brick?

Brick-constructed buildings feature several advantages. However, they can also show signs of both minor and serious issues. These can include moisture damage or cracks. For example, thermal movement, particularly on longer walls and may require immediate attention. Elmbridge Brickwork And Building Contractors should be able to assist with a maintenance quote. Contact them at 01932 880238 or 20 Dukes Rd, Walton-On-Thames, KT12 4LS.

Styles of brickwork can range from the relatively common, like Dutch bond, which is similar to English bond, to the rare, such English garden wall bond is often a mix of Flemish and Monk bonds. Consider renegotiating the price of the Haltwhistle property, based on the results of your survey. Works to remedy even some superficial brick wall defects can be both expensive and disruptive.

Building Surveys on houses

Should I pay a bit more for a full structural survey for regency cottage ?

The Building Survey is the new name for the Structural Survey following its new title a while ago by RICS. You would be best advised to have a Building Survey for the property referred to. The HomeBuyer Report is enough if buying a 60 year old or less unmodified Haltwhistle house made out of conventional construction materials.

Bear in mind that certain limitations come with any survey as a surveyor cannot open up the structure of the house nor can they advise whether drainage meets appropriate regulations.
