Traditionally built property

What do I need to pay attention to when buying an older property? What consequences will the design have on upkeep?

Many buyers in Hetton Le Hole would be interested in owning a home with character, such as a farmstead. For traditionally-built Hetton Le Hole property, age, however, can be a cause of concern for would-be buyers. Hetton Le Hole structures constructed with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be unexpectedly hard to upkeep. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary. Especially for a home in one of Hetton Le Hole's conservation areas, Traditional materials may be required.

Damage resulting from flooding

When buying in Hetton Le Hole, should we be worried about a flood risk, and will the HomeBuyer Report investigate indications of water damage, or whether flooding has affected neighbouring property?

The lives of many home owners in Hetton Le Hole and across the UK have been affected by flooding, and it is not clear that reasonably-priced flooding insurance will be available in years to come. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable. Flood water can enter a residential property through several routes, including seepage through external walls. An awareness of characteristics of the Hetton Le Hole area likely to affect the residential property also enables the house surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. Also included on Environment Agency's flood warning are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.

Timber damage by insect larvae

There may be bugs at the house in Hetton Le Hole we're buying, but we are not certain. How do we investigate further?

Hetton Le Hole homes are generally free of pests, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. When purchasing a house, this matter should be borne in mind. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months, silverfish are common in damp kitchens and bathrooms, but only appear at night, and can therefore be difficult to spot. Treatment for insect infestation may include professional cleaning or removal or excision of affected timber. If you strongly suspect an issue with carpet beetle larvae, or any pest, speak to your RICS surveyor
