Home Buyers Survey in Wooler

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Wooler and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is basically the same the same.

If the Wooler property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out an extension, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it will give comprehensive details of the Wooler property's general condition as well as advice on structural defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact does wet conditions have on a building in Wooler? Could damaged rainwater goods lower the property value?

As a frequent surveyor of property in the area, I find it strange that the effect which rain has on buildings in Wooler is not given enough thought. If you have only been to the home in dry weather, issues may have been hidden. Blocked rainwater goods can result in hazardous mould.

Whether buying in Wooler or elsewhere, difficult gutters does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to repair. However, if the drains are not cleared out regularly, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair.

Traditionally built property

I am buying a cottage. Will the age of the property be an issue?

Many buyers in Wooler have considered buying a house with personality, like a coach house or converted stable. A property's age, however, can create difficulties for an owner. Buildings employing traditional methods can be challenging to maintain. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional building materials, which could be a good opportunity to discuss lowering the purchase price to cover repair costs.Mention this to your RICS surveyor for more information.

Gas flame

Will a surveyor check out the condition or the safety of the gas mains supply?

Yes. Your chartered surveyor will locate and visually inspect the accessible parts of the gas system. A surveyor will want to inspect the condition of the meter where relevant, as well as gas connected fixtures, for instance chimney linings. A Wooler surveyor will not remove the external fittings or housings and surveyors are not qualified to do any tests of any kind on the functionality of the gas system. Most people are aware that gas can be dangerous, should there be any worries about gas fittings, call a gas safe engineer.

Conservation area

Will there be any concerns I would need to consider if intending to buy a period property in Wooler inside a conservation area ?

There are around ten thousand of designated conservation areas throughout the country which are governed by the local council.

A Building Surveyors must possess local knowledge of relevant local factors and the effect may have on the home and its value. The price of property is, more often than not, significantly higher owing to conservation areas being largely unspoilt However many conservation areas have fallen into a state for example - the removal front garden walls

Property surveyors are expected tell you if the house looks to be is so classified and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Wooler Homebuyer Report will recommend further investigations are conducted during the conveyancing process. Out of keeping adjustments to the property should be reported in the Wooler survey, however these should be concern for your legal adviser.

Landfill site near home

What should I be worried about if buying a home proximate to a refuse landfill site

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste including hazardous refuse. No one would want to live near one (4/5 people live within 1.5m of one!). Worries include heavy metals. Health issues for example cancer have been associated to landfill sites .

Surveyors in Wooler will examine structural issues connected with the site. Your conveyancer will carry out conveyancing and environmental searches of the Environmental Agency databases and Northumberland Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .
