Home Buyers Survey in Yarm On Tees

HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Yarm On Tees and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Yarm On Tees property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make an extension on the property, you should you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Yarm On Tees property's condition along with advice on structural defects , repairs and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I've put in an offer in Yarm On Tees. What advice would a Yarm On Tees property surveyor give?

Yarm On Tees brick-walled converted property can show signs of a number of issues, including crypto-florescence and vertical cracking. An issue often addressed by surveyors in the region is brick rot, resulting from decades of exposure to condensation or damp at ground level. Tyler S J Ltd should be able to assist with a maintenance quote. Contact them at 01480 214820 or 4 Bloomfield Cl, Little Paxton, St. Neots, PE19 6JL.

Other aspects of a property which may feature decorative include alternating courses of brick and stone, e.g. flint. Contact a specialist for more information if this is of interest.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a survey include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate and what does it include?

A Homebuyer Report on a Yarm On Tees property will contain a property valuation and a cost of reinstatement as part of the report. To fully consider the value of the property your RICS valuer should use local property market knowledge as well as other factors relating to the property for instance: state of repair Your Yarm On Tees surveyor will also consider style of architecture and will use other assumptions like no significant problems. Surveyors will disregard certain things like furnishings e.g. carpets. It will be assumed that there aren't any serious legal problems for example consent for alteration having been given and complied with. Advice should be sought from your conveyancing solicitor.

Further Yarm On Tees conjectures, like connection to sewers, are made as well as any significant environmental issues like local mining issues, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing in Yarm On Tees. What will we need to take notice of when purchasing older property? What impact will the design have on maintenance?

Many buyers have looked at purchasing a home with character. Use of traditional methods, however, can occasionally give buyers second thoughts. Homes constructed with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be challenging to maintain. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary. Especially for Grade I listed property, Materials suitable for the work may be required. This may end up costing more than initially budgeted.

Landfill site near home

What should I be aware of when purchasing a home in the region a rubbish dump

Sites used for landfill take many forms for example: inert rubbish disposal. Understandably, no one would want to live near one (80% of people live near one). Worries might include complex organic chemicals .

Yarm On Tees surveyors will find structural problems connected with the site. Your legal representative will conduct environmental searches of the British Geological data sets as well as Stockton-on-Tees Local Authority and give you the results of the search .
