HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Catton and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Catton property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will offer exhaustive analysis of the Catton property's condition and it includes information on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be fearful of if buying a maisonette close to a rubbish tip

Landfill Sites take many forms e.g. domestic refuse disposal. No one would want to live near one (80% of people live under 2km away from one). Risks include structurally instability. Health concerns like congenital birth defects have been associated to landfill sites .

Surveyors will find any structural defects resulting from the landfill. Your legal representative will commission conveyancing and environmental searches of the Environmental Agency data sets in addition to Northumberland Local Authority and advise you .

Asbestos roof tiles

The estate agent has mentioned there might be asbestos wall panelling concealed in the flat. What are the issues with asbestos?

Asbestos was not fully prohibited until the late nineties so property built prior to 1999 may contain asbestos. Asbestos is a potentially deadly material. Some types may be in building materials for example patching compounds.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has a range of useful characteristic fire retarding properties, it may be found in vinyl flooring. It was primarily mined in the US.

All forms including white are pernicious and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. In fact inhaling a one fibre is not fatal.

If found, care should be taken on no account to damage it and professional advice must be taken urgently. Getting rid of it will likely be dear but absolutely must be carried out by professionals. Surveyors will not tell you whether there is asbestos on a Catton home survey. Surveyors will mention suspected asbestos and will inform you of the options.

Damaged Render

What will the RICS Surveyor consider on a stucco rendered regency period home in Catton that I wish to buy.

Stucco is actually just a specific type of render. Typically stucco render is applied to brick hardens to form an even finish. Stucco render is highly aesthetic and is found on Victorian and Regency properties. Expert tradesmen who work with it say it is very like mortar. It can have lime in it in addition to animal fibres to stop cracks. it can be prone to defect and Catton Homebuyer Reports frequently show potentially expensive to remedy problems which can include trapped water leading to damp problems which need attention.

Another example of problems associated with stucco could include when the application has been taken down to ground level and short circuits the Damp Proof Course. Re-covering problems with stucco can be costly as renderers are getting more difficult to find.
