Home Buyers Survey in Redcar

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Redcar and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Redcar property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it does offer a thorough analysis of the Redcar property's condition and it includes advice on structural defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Will a surveyor examine the condition of the gas installations?

The local surveyor will locate and visually survey any easily accessible parts of the system. This will mean gas related areas such as the mains gas installation for example, as well as gas related fittings such as fixed external ventilation hearths. If there are any gas fittings they won't however be taken off. Gas is potentially unsafe, should you have any concerns relating to gas installations of any type, call a gas safe engineer.

Stone block wall damage

Can homes constructed with stone generate high upkeep costs for owners? Which defects should we consider?

Poorly pointed or installed window frames can often cause problems for Redcar buildings with stone walls. Issues which impact the lifespan of stone-built elements are as diverse as the stone varieties themselves. Bear in mind that some defects will affect regular or irregularly cut stone equally, whereas others will not, and may require a local surveyors expertise to identify. Upkeep advice often given in a survey includes removal of invasive plants, such as ivy.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact should rain have on our new house in Redcar? And could it affect the property value?

Regular rainfall is common in Redcar and across the country, but this issue is overlooked by home buyers. If you have investigated the house in the Summer, issues may have been hidden. Blocked rainwater goods can result in penetrating damp.

In most cases, problems with drains are quite easy to remedy. Where this is untreated or poorly maintained, the damage becomes increasing costly to remedy.
