Home Buyers Survey in Wolsingham

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Wolsingham and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same.

If the Wolsingham property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Wolsingham property's state of repair in addition to an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should I be concerned about when buying a property close to a refuse landfill site

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes e.g. hazardous waste material disposal. Of course nobody would want to live near one (most people do live within 1.5m of one!). Worries might include leaking underground tanks from petrol stations for example. Health problems for example birth defects have been associated to landfill sites .

Surveyors in Wolsingham will notice structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your conveyancing solicitor will conduct environmental searches of the British Geological databases as well as County Durham Local Authority and advise you .

Stone block wall damage

Do stone-walled properties generate lots of maintenance costs for a new owner? Are there specific potential issues to consider?

Incorrect use of Cement based mortar on a structure build with Hydraulic Lime can often cause problems for Wolsingham homes with stone walls , and the defects impacting a type of stone will vary according to its properties. Regular stone describes cut stone, generally forming brick-like courses. These may require less maintenance than more irregularly built walls, but this is heavily dependent on the type of stone used. Buyers should consider that stone can have a great effect on the long-term viability of a property or extension, resulting in higher repair costs in future. For example, limestone can quickly deteriorate. You can request advice on the specific steps to be taken when a problem is identified. Common guidance may include using traditional techniques when making repairs to the fabric of older buildings.

If you a undertaking repairs, and require matching stone, contact a Wolsingham firm. For example, Stone J L D, Mill House Farm, Thornley Rd, Tow Law, Bishop Auckland, DL13 4ED (Phone: 01388 731960) may be able to assist.
