About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Hartlepool

HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Hartlepool and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Hartlepool property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any alterations, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, however it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Hartlepool property's general condition and it includes information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is heavy rainfall an issue in Hartlepool?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, rainfall and the effect it can have on your property are not considered. Signs that drainage systems are at risk include water pooling below gutters. If you suspect a problem, consider asking the surveyor for more information.

In most cases, problems with drains are quite easy to repair fairly cheaply.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Poor roof maintenance brings up bad memories for us, and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. What does the Hartlepool surveyor be concerned about during the survey work?

This is frequently addressed by RICS surveyors. Many properties could unfortunately be experiencing problems like sagging beams. From purlins to ridge flashing, every part of the roof will be considered. Your RICS surveyors may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a local contractor for the job itself. Speak to RCW Builders of 50 Pembroke Av, Sunderland, SR3 2DH on 07763 141161 to request a quote.

Gas flame

Does the qualified RICS surveyor examine the condition or the safety of the gas supply?

The qualified RICS surveyor will visually inspect the easily accessible parts of the system. The surveyor will look at gas heaters at the property, in addition to gas associated installations like balanced flues. External fittings however, won't be removed. Gas can be deadly, should there be any worries about gas fittings, call a gas safe engineer.

Gas Safe certified County Durham based local companies include A J Plumbing of 30 Oakwood Close, Hartlepool, Cleveland Tel. 08003118999 and East Durham Plumbing and Heating of 39 Hardwick Street, Blackhall Colliery, Hartlepool, Cleveland Tel. 07929 333861.

Regulations require that all landlords have to conduct appliance and installation inspections every year and punishments for failure to comply include heavy fines .
