About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Wylam

HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same.

If the Wylam property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out major works, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap however it does give comprehensive details of the Wylam property's state of repair and it includes information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

We are planning to buy a property and the owner has suggested that it has been built with Slate. What issues must we watch out for, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

External wall maintenance is essential to the health of homes. The properties of a stone can affect wear as much as upkeep or construction.

Stone walls are either regular (cut) or irregular in structure, each of which will provoke particular concerns. Different stone types will also decay a different rates based on environmental conditions. For example, granite is more water resistant that most other stones. A survey will include a range of suggestions or requirements for maintenance, such as clearing of ivy-like plant life and weeds.

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing a 16th Century dovecot in Wylam. What effect will the house's wooden structure have on regular maintenance?

Many buyers in Wylam have looked at purchasing a unique or characterful property. Vernacular architecture, however, can worry purchasers. Wylam homes built using traditional methods can be challenging to upkeep. You should bear in mind that specialist knowledge may be needed. Especially for property in a conservation area, Materials suitable for the work may be required. This may result in longer-term maintenance obligations. If you are uncertain, speak to your building surveyor for more information.

Timber damage by insect larvae

There may be pests at the house we're buying, but we are not certain - Will a RICS surveyor look into this?

Wylam properties are generally free of infestations, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. This concern should be taken seriously. Evidence may not be easy to find. For example, mice are able to squeeze through even small gaps and holes, and quickly spread disease through their droppings. Remedies to pest problems can include destruction of tainted materials. The home surveyor may include notes on any signs of vermin or other pests in their report. It is, however, advisable that specific worries you may have be raised ASAP.

Landfill site near home

What should I be wary of when buying a maisonette in the region a refuse landfill site

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes including domestic waste disposal. Nobody wants to live near one (most people do live near one). Worries include complex organic chemicals. Potential health problems like cancer have been associated to landfill sites .

Wylam surveyors will notice structural problems linked to the site. Your solicitor will conduct environmental searches of the Environmental Agency data sets in addition to Northumberland Local Authority and advise you .
