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 .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is rainfall an issue in Hexham, and does our HomeBuyer Report mention it? Can damaged guttering decrease our property's value?

Despite England's reputation for wet weather the effect which wet weather has on properties is ignored by house purchasers. If you have only been to the house in dry weather, problems are unlikely to be visible. Signs that rainwater goods are worth a closer look include corroded downspouts. Blocked rainwater goods can result in collapsed drains or overflowing septic tank.

The good news is that guttering issues are quite easy to repair. If untreated or poorly maintained, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.

House Prices

Is £245, 066 a reasonable price to buy a detached property in NE46 for. What will a Hexham chartered surveyor consider when carrying out a RICS valuation ?

There is a near endless list of things which could have a bearing on house prices, for example the number of bedrooms or general regional pricing. As an indicator, one can try to consider the prices of house achieved in the area for similar houses.

The means house prices recorded at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £239, 366, which is £5, 700 less than the price you are intending to pay. The house/flat average was £214, 535. Milestone Cottage, Wall, Hexham, Northumberland, Northumberland, NE46 4ED a detached property was purchased for £405, 000 .

The most reliable way to get an independent home valuation is with a Homebuyer Report (or Property Valuation Report) which includes a professional valuation as a core component.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I've put in an offer in Hexham. What warnings would a Hexham property surveyor give?

Hexham houses with brick walls can show signs of considerable issues. These can include DPC failure or signs of movement. For instance, wall tie failure. This occurs when ties supporting old cavity walls rust, leading to horizontal cracks and separation of the internal and eternal leaves of the wall and should be taken very seriously. BF Brickwork at Unit B/Edison Courtyard/Brunel Rd, Earlstrees Industrial Estate, Corby, NN17 4LS should give an estimate for any work. Call them on 01536 402224.

A number of styles of brick building can be found across Hexham. For example, Flemish bond, featuring alternating long and short faces of bricks. The advice of a brickwork specialist should be sought before attempting repairs.
