About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Hartburn

HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Hartburn and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is effectively the same.

If the Hartburn property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any alterations, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it does offer a thorough analysis of the Hartburn property's general condition as well as information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Will a RICS surveyor inspect the serviceability of the gas heaters?

The chartered surveyor will locate and visually look at the accessible parts of the gas system. A surveyor will want to inspect gas heaters where relevant, as well as gas connected appliances, for instance chimney breasts. The Hartburn qualified surveyor won't remove the external fittings or housings and will not do any tests whatsoever on the system. Most people are aware that gas is potentially unsafe, should there be any concerns about gas fittings at all, , contact a gas safe engineer.

The Gas Safety (Installation & Use) Regulations 1998 require that all landlords are legally required to conduct appliance and installation inspections annually. Non compliance penalties are severe .

Roof defects identified during a survey

We're purchasing a structure in Hartburn. What will our Hartburn surveyor pay attention to during the survey?

This often causes anxiety for Hartburn home buyers who know how costly roofing work can be. Many residential properties will suffer roofing problems. From fascias to parapet walls, every element of the roof should be reported on. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like a poor asphalt covering.

The expense of felting a flat roof, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. A quote (or several) for any necessary work should be acquired as soon as possible.

Asbestos roof tiles

The estate agent has mentioned there might be asbestos wall panelling concealed in the flat. What are the issues with asbestos, can it be removed, ?

Asbestos is a harmful fibrous material. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and may be in building materials e.g. toilet cistern.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has good heat resistance qualities and it may be found in textured coatings. Most of it was sourced from Canada. Technically all forms including Chrysotile are ultimately dangerous and may lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Contrary to common perception, inhaling a single fibre will not kill you.

If found, care should be taken not to disturb the asbestos. Professional advice should be sought urgently. Removing it will likely be costly but absolutely must be carried out by professionals. Hartburn Surveyors will not tell you whether there is asbestos on a Hartburn survey. Surveyors will report on the risk of asbestos during the Hartburn survey and will suggest further investigation.

Landfill site near home

What should we be worried about when buying a home near to a rubbish landfill

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes for example: industrial refuse disposal. Understandably, no one would want to live near one (4/5 people live within 1.5m of one!). Risks might include hazardous chemicals. Potential health problems like gut problems have been linked to landfill sites .

Surveyors will flag up any structural issues connected with the landfill. Your legal representative will conduct environmental searches of the Landmark databases and Northumberland Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .
