HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Haydon Bridge and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same.

If the Haydon Bridge property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations on the Haydon Bridge property, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it does provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Haydon Bridge property's general condition in addition to advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Haydon Bridge, what recommendations will a Haydon Bridge property surveyor make for a property constructed with Fletton brick? Is age a factor?

Brick-built Haydon Bridge property do benefit from many advantages. Unfortunately, they also experience numerous defects. These can include frost damaged pointing or cracks. An issue of particular concern is diagonal cracking caused by ground movement. Hepburn & Co at 17 Marchant Way, Morley, Leeds, LS27 7GF should give an estimate for any work. Call them on 0113-253 9029.

For buyers interested in less common uses of brick, consider ornate Della Robbia bond paving, but it is strongly advised that professional advice be sought prior to attempting repairs.

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a building survey consider indications of water damage?

Contrary to popular opinion, the distance a Haydon Bridge house is from the nearest river or coast is not the only measure of flood risk. Both house buyers and home owners in areas in danger of flooding are right to be worried. A flood danger alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures.

Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. the use of lime-based plaster on walls. The house surveyor may ask the property owner or occupier about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.

Deteriorated timber

On the HomeBuyer Report, what are common Condition Rating 1 defects for joinery and finishes?

The format of the RICS HomeBuyer Report is clear and easy to read. Your property surveyor will mark each aspect of the property included in Section E with either a green, orange or red rating, to indicate to what extent any problems or notable points may negatively impact the property. Aspects of the property in good or excellent condition are marked as 'green' with a condition rating of 1. This rating does not, however, mean that no future maintenance is required. Regular upkeep may still be appropriate or even necessary.

In Haydon Bridge, examples include buckled or cracked plywood or hardboard elements. This section includes visual aspects of the roof, checked with the aid of binoculars where appropriate. Fascias, soffits and eaves are reported on.
