About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Shotley Bridge

HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is effectively the same survey.

If the Shotley Bridge property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any major works on the property, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Shotley Bridge property's state of repair along with an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

Can we get Flemish Diagonal bond advice for the converted property we're buying?

Brick-constructed structures in Shotley Bridge demonstrate several benefits, but they can also suffer from considerable issues, ranging from sulphate expansion to frost damage.

A defect often found is frost damage, which over time will cause bricks and mortar to disintegrate entirely. Hepburn & Co may be able to give an estimate for any necessary upkeep. Contact them at 17 Marchant Way, Morley, Leeds, LS27 7GF or 0113-253 9029.

Brick-constructed property have been a feature of house construction in this country for 100s of years, leading to a great deal of variety. For instance, common bond, which is made up of stretchers (long faced bricks) with headers (the short face of the brick) every 6 courses or rows. The advice of a brickwork specialist should be sought before attempting repairs.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The property we plan to purchase is built on clay soil. Can we expect the Shotley Bridge Building Survey to mention this? Does the chartered surveyor give maintenance advice?

The content of soil around the foundations of a Shotley Bridge house will have an impact. Drought, for instance, can have a significant shrinking effect on clay soil, squeezing the foundations and potentially leading to very noticeable effects within the property. The real impact of this could reveal itself as anything from unremarkable minor wall cracks in the garage, to complete structural failure. A Shotley Bridge surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly.
