HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Gateshead and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is basically the same the same survey.

If the Gateshead property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make substantial modifications, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it does provide you with a thorough analysis of the Gateshead property's general condition in addition to an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any considerations I should consider if buying a converted flat in Gateshead in the vicinity of conservation area ?

There are 9, 300 of designated conservation areas throughout the country which are designated by the local authority.

A Building Surveyors need to have sufficient knowledge of local factors and the effect they have with the building and its value. House prices are typically enhanced owing to conservation areas being largely unspoilt However many areas are falling into shoddy condition for example - the addition of PVC windows and doors

Surveyors can be expected to report whether the property is or might be is designated and Section I of your Gateshead Homebuyer Report will advise additional enquiries are carried out

by your conveyancer. Unauthorised extensions to the building should be reported in the Gateshead survey but these are really more a concern for your conveyancer. Short Richardson & Forth Llp are a local firm situated at 4 Mosley Street, Gateshead, Tyne and Wear, NE1 1DE will be able to help. Tel: 0191 232 0283

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I am looking for Flemish bond advice - can a Gateshead surveyor assist? Is brick more susceptible to the weather?

Gateshead brick-walled residences can be affected by distinct issues, from erosion to thermal movement. One defect surveyors of brick property frequently address is frost damage, which over time will cause bricks and mortar to disintegrate entirely. Contact A Class for a repairs estimate at 07508 754058 or 3/Crowhurst House/Aytoun Rd, London, SW9 0UD.

Other aspects of a property which may feature decorative include the use of 'clicker' or misfired brick, but it is strongly advised that professional advice be sought prior to attempting repairs.

Roof defects identified during a survey

The seller said that damage to the parapet had been a concern. Which issues relating to the structure's roof will be checked during the survey?

This is often asked by house purchasers who know that homes may be exposed to difficulties with the roof, for example, mould. From collar ties to fascias, the whole roof will be taken into account. Your house surveyors may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

Roof maintenance need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A building survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will be facing. If a estimate for roofing work is required, a local contractor can provide one.
