Home Buyers Survey in Yarm

HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Yarm and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Yarm property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any works or an extension on the Yarm property, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Yarm property's general condition as well as advice on defects and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be aware of when buying a maisonette proximate to a refuse landfill site

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes including non-hazardous rubbish. Nobody would want to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Risks might include structurally instability. Health concerns for example congenital birth defects have been associated with landfill sites .

Yarm surveyors will note structural issues connected with the site. Your conveyancing solicitor will conduct environmental searches of the British Geological data sets and County Durham Local Authority and give you the results of the search .

Traditionally built property

I am purchasing a 19th Century barn conversion. What impact will the structure have on repairs?

Some buyers have considered buying a old, characterful home one day. For houses in Yarm built before the 20th Century, age, however, can often be problematic, and Yarm property featuring traditional methods can be a drain to repair. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary. Especially for listed property, Materials suitable for the work may be required. Built in the 15th century, Tom Brown's House, 114 High Street in Yarm is a fine example of a Medieval-period cross wing (?).
