HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Hebburn and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Hebburn property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any substantial modifications, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap, however it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Hebburn property's condition as well as including advice on structural defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

We are planning to buy a cottage and the seller has made us aware that it has been partially constructed with York stone. Which major matters should we consider, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

The sturdy appearance of stone walls may hide serious concerns. Buyers should also be aware that the potential severity of issues like efflorescence will vary with the particular type of stone. Regular stone describes cut stone, generally forming brick-like courses. These may require less maintenance than more irregularly built walls, but this is heavily dependent on the type of stone used. Both regular or irregular stone can be mortared with lime-based mortar. This may also require careful attention. Upkeep advice often given in a survey includes repointing of loose or crumbling mortar.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The rat-trap bond walls on this converted apartment looks in bad shape - what should we do? Will it make a difference if render is applied?

Hebburn brick-walled apartments can experience several common problems. This could be anything from defective mortar to inadequate damp-proofing. One frequently reported defect is thermal or other movement. Often vertical cracks appear above the level of the DPC, running the full height of the wall, where this seasonal expansion and contraction occurs. For more information, contact a local builder, Hester R B of Lands End/Landsend La, Twyford, Reading, RG10 0UE on 0118-934 5200.

Hebburn home purchasers may need to consider that selection of different courses and brick making techniques feature in construction throughout Hebburn. As an example, English bond, featuring alternating rows of long and short faces of bricks, but it is strongly advised that professional advice be sought prior to attempting repairs.

Gas flame

Does the qualified surveyor go into detail on the safety of the gas appliances?

A local surveyor will visually inspect any easily accessible parts of the system. A surveyor will want to inspect the mains gas installation for example, as well as gas associated fixtures, for instance chimney breasts. External fittings or covers won't actually be taken off. The system won't be tested in any way. Needless to say, gas can be hazardous, should you have any worries about gas at all, , call a gas safe engineer.
