About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Ryton

HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Ryton and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Ryton property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any alterations, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it will give comprehensive details of the Ryton property's condition as well as advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We found cracks along the sitting room ceiling, is this subsidence? Is this a severe risk, and what subsidence-related defects will my property survey review?

Subsidence is movement in a building's foundations. In the majority of cases, subsidence can be remedied. In some older buildings cracks are noticeable in Summer[ that close up in the winter] when the materials absorb moisture. These cracks are usually completely harmless.

Cracks to a wall surface are an obvious indication of subsidence, though they could be nothing to worry about. In serious weather conditions, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence. This is not usually a concern in England and Wales however.

Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step.This is not always as costly as some buyers fear.Removing or even pruning any tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Chartered surveyors should be able to identify a subsidence problem, while structural engineers may also be required.

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a flood risk in Ryton, and will the HomeBuyer Report investigate water damage, or whether flooding has affected other properties?

Unfortunately, distance from water or height above sea level is no guarantee that a Ryton home will be secure against floods. Both home buyers and home owners in areas at a high risk of flooding are right to be worried. Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the Ryton home in question is in danger. The house survey may also, where appropriate, advise on urgent repairs.Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. raised door thresholds. The property surveyor may ask the agent about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.

Stone block wall damage

I am intending to put an offer in on a converted barn built Cotswold stone. Are there specific related issues to consider, 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 erosion of pointing joints, and the defects impacting a type of stone will vary according to its properties. Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to homes in Ryton, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used in the construction of doors and windows. Maintenance tips include removal of invasive plants, such as ivy.

Roof defects identified during a survey

The estate agent mentioned that the had been issues with pooling water on the roof, and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. Which issues relating to the roofing will be investigated when the survey is carried out?

This is frequently addressed by surveyors. Many properties could unfortunately be experiencing roofing woes, like bowing beams. From slates to collar ties, the whole roof will be taken into account. Factors like being literally flat, as opposed to on a small incline so that water can drain correctly are particularly troublesome for flat roofed property.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like a complete replacement, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. A quote for the work could be sought from a reliable local contractor.
