HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Blaydon On Tyne and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Blaydon On Tyne property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make major works on the Blaydon On Tyne property, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Blaydon On Tyne property's general condition along with an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact should high levels of rainfall have on a building? Are repairs going to be expensive?

As a frequent surveyor of property in the area, I find it strange that this issue is usually overlooked by property buyers. As an example, corroded downspouts will likely suggest that the downspouts are damaged.

The good news is that drainage problems are generally easy to remedy, if not neglected. If untreated or poorly maintained, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.

Building Surveys on houses

What are the benefits for doing a full structural survey in Blaydon On Tyne rather than a HomeBuyer Report?

Structural Surveys no longer exist anymore and the Building Survey has now superseded it. Go for the RICS Building Survey in the case of the house described. A HomeBuyer Report has enough detail if investigating a 60 year old or less Blaydon On Tyne house built out of typical construction materials and methods. Bear in mind that some survey no go areas come with a property survey as a surveyor will not be able to open up the structure of the house for example, or comment on the regulatory compliance of heating systems.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I have heard that clay soil can cause problems for homes in Blaydon On Tyne. Will the Property Survey consider this? Does the chartered surveyor give maintenance advice?

If not monitored appropriately, the make up of the soil surrounding a home's foundations can create difficulties. Given the moisture content does have such a great affect of clay-rich soil, owners should be aware that defects can arise if environmental conditions change. The real impact of this could reveal itself as anything from unremarkable small cracks in the drawing room wall, to complete structural failure.

Taking precautions, such as avoiding planting trees too near the house, and pruning where necessary, can make long term maintenance easier, and keep repair costs manageable. If soil water levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is also important. Your surveyor may be able to offer practical suggestions as to how this can be achieved.
