HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Ferryhill and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same survey.

If the Ferryhill property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any alterations on the property, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap but it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Ferryhill property's state of repair along with information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What sort of thing will the Surveyor be focused on, on a smooth stucco house in Ferryhill.

Stucco is just a type of render. Normally it is layered over brick to form an even finish. The effect is highly aesthetic and is often found on Regency houses. It may have lime in it in addition to a grid underneath to stop cracks. it can be problematic and Ferryhill Building Surveys can detail any number of problems like trapped water resulting in damp problems

Another example of problems may include when the stucco is taken down to ground level and bypasses the Damp Proof Course. Remedying problems with stucco can be difficult and costly as the skills are getting harder to find.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We have made an offer for a home with a converted attic in Ferryhill. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. What will our building surveyor in Ferryhill investigate during the survey?

Questions like this are often asked of chartered surveyors by purchasers who are aware that property may be exposed to difficulties with the roof. From collar beams to dormers, the whole roof should be reported on. Difficulties can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by amateur repairs.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. A contractor in Ferryhill can provide an estimate.

English Heritage

I am planning to buy a building near Middleham Castle , will this affect the property's value?

Middleham Castle is a scheduled monument considered to be of national importance. Places of local interest can certainly enhance the attractiveness of an area. A surveyor will consider many regional factors when carrying out the homebuyer report in Ferryhill. Refer to the English Heritage site for more details on Middleham Castle.
