HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Holmrook and of the 3, which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Holmrook property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make alterations, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Holmrook property's general condition and it includes advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

If in doubt why not obtain a Holmrook House Survey Quote online or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

English Heritage

I am intending to purchase a property near Cairn Field In Mecklin Park , will this affect the property's value?

Cairn Field In Mecklin Park is a scheduled monument considered to be of national importance. Monuments of local interest often increase the attractiveness of an area. Examples of other local sites of importance include Drigg Holme Packhorse Bridge and Roman Kilns.. A RICS valuer will include many regional factors when conducting homebuyer report in Holmrook. See the English Heritage website for further details on Cairn Field In Mecklin Park.

Shocking Electrics

When I viewed the mid-century home I am intending to purchase it looked like there is deterioration in the wiring and RCD unit - does a the Holmrook surveyor report on the electrics?

When performing a Building Survey in Holmrook your RICS surveyor should report on the electrics if it is apparent that they are in a hazardous state of repair. This should include an overview of open or exposed areas of the wiring or fusebox on top of things like checking the condition of fixed appliances, e.g. water heaters or the condition residual circuit breakers (RCD) and/or miniature circuit breakers (MCBs). Looking at any evidence of the most recent PIR carried out by a suitably qualified electrician will form part of the survey in Holmrook.

Stone block wall damage

I am purchasing a converted barn and the vendor has informed us that it has been constructed with Slate. What should we be particularly aware of, and what does the survey cover?

Damp proof course issues can often cause problems for homes in Holmrook with stone walls. Defects such as spalling brick affect many stone-walled homes in Holmrook.

Stone walls are either regular (cut) or irregular in structure, each of which will provoke particular concerns. Buyers should consider that stone can have a great effect on the long-term viability of a property or extension, resulting in higher repair costs in future.

For example, limestones such as Bath stone or Kentish Rag will deteriorate when exposed to the elements. Maintenance tips include clearance of nearby trees and plants. Pulling these up can cause more damage, so your surveyor may recommend a specialist perform the work.

The sheer breadth of varying stone materials can make it difficult for purchasers to correctly identify the particular stone used in the building of a home. Quarries in Holmrook should be able to supply local stone.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Peel Place Quarry, Holmrook, Gosforth, Cumbria, CA19 1YD for details. Call 01946 724382 for more information.
