HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Hexham and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is effectively the same survey.

If the Hexham property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make significant alterations, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Hexham property's general condition as well as including advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

English Heritage

I am buying a building close to Allenheads Lead Ore Works , will this affect the property's value?

Allenheads Lead Ore Works is a scheduled monument considered to be of national importance. Monuments of local importance often increase the desirability of an area. Examples of other nearby monuments of interest include Bastle At Grandy'S Knowe, Bastle At Low Leam Farm and Bastles At Chesterwood.. The RICS surveyor will include many local criteria during the home buyers survey in Hexham. See the English Heritage website for further information on Allenheads Lead Ore Works.

Stone block wall damage

We are purchasing an 1820s conversion with stone walls. What should we look in to?

Locally quarried stone may be more susceptible to specific issues. The problems which can plague poorly maintained stone vary considerably. 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, though the use of this declined with the introduction of cement. You can request advice on the specific steps to be taken when a problem is identified.

Common guidance may include use of traditional methods to maintain older walls.

Ask your surveyor for clarification if you are in doubt as to likely maintenance, particularly if the house in question is listed or located in a conservation area.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Keepershield Quarry, Humshaugh, Hexham, Northumberland, NE46 4BB, which quarries Igneous & Metamorphic Rock, for details. Call 01434 681893 for more information.

Gas flame

Does a chartered surveyor look at the safety of the gas installations?

A surveyor will visually examine the accessible parts of the gas system. This means things like the location of the meter for example, in addition to gas related gas fittings in the home e.g. prefabricated flues. External covers won't actually be taken off. Of course, gas is potentially hazardous, should you have any concerns about gas fittings, call a gas safe engineer.

Gas Safe Register firms in Hexham include R K Plumbing and Heating of 26 Oak Close, Hexham Tel. 07966168539 and Focus Consultants of 114 Wydon Park, Hexham, Northumberland Tel. 01434608388.
