Building Surveys on flats 1

I am acquiring a defective period flat , should I upgrade to a full structural survey?

The Full Structural Survey has a new title and is now called a Building Survey.

The HomeBuyer Report has enough detail if buying a non period Heddon On The Wall flat assembled from standard construction materials and methods. A Building Survey is certainly the correct survey to go for the flat described. There are certain limitations are integral with a Building Survey as the surveyor cannot force or open up the fabric of the building of inspect where doing so could cause damage to the flat. Furthermore flats frequently mean access to the building can be prevented and as a result the surveyor will only give an account of the flat itself, though the surveyor may also outline information about shared sections of the property such as any alarm system. For a table containing a comparison of survey types visit surveys compared.

Conservation area

Are there any problems we should be conscious of if intending to buy a house in Heddon On The Wall inside a conservation area ?

There are many thousands of conservation areas in the UK that are designated and monitored by local authorities.

A Building Surveyors must have sufficient knowledge of relevant local considerations and the effect may have on the property. The price of property will probably be significantly higher as a result of them being in good order. However many have been neglected and are in a state e.g. badly maintained and potholed roads and pavements

Property surveyors will advise you if the home is possibly classified as such and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Homebuyer Report will recommend the proper questions are conducted by the solicitor or conveyancer. Out of keeping adjustments to the property may be reported but these are really more a concern for your legal adviser. Kingstons Solicitors are a local firm situated at 141-143 Benwell Lane, Northumberland, Northumberland, NE15 6RT might be able to tell you what to look out for. Tel: 0191 226 0333

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I am purchasing a Heddon On The Wall property and am a little concerned that the foundations are at risk. Can your Building Survey investigate this? Does the chartered surveyor give maintenance advice?

Negative effects that clay soil can have on a structure can create long-term problems for Heddon On The Wall buyers, with subsidence being a common example. Drought, for instance, can have a pronounced contracting effect on clay soil, putting pressure on the foundations and potentially leading to very noticeable effects within the property. For example, cracked plaster may be benign, or a clue prompting a more thorough investigation. A Heddon On The Wall surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. In some more extreme cases, the building foundations may need extra support, but this can be costly.
