HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Hurworth and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Hurworth property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Hurworth property's general condition along with an opinion on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a risk of flooding in Hurworth, and can a Hurworth building survey search for indications of flooding, or whether flooding has affected neighbour's houses?

Flooding in Hurworth can cause severe damage to both contents and property, and home purchasers and owners are understandably concerned.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure.

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a residence, such as via window frames.

Familiarity with characteristics of the local area likely to affect residence enables the home surveyor to surmise flooding may be a risk, even if the property has not itself flooded before. 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

I am worried about pests in the property in Hurworth we plan to buy - Should we get a RICS surveyor?

Hurworth homes are generally free of infestations, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can carry serious health risks and affect its value. An affected home may not always be easy to identify. As an example, silverfish are common in damp kitchens and bathrooms, but only appear at night, and can therefore be difficult to spot. Remedies to vermin can include destruction of tainted materials. Your surveyor may report on signs of infestation, but if you have specific concerns they can be taken into account.

House Prices

There is a property in DL2 on with a local agent for £209, 576. What will a Hurworth chartered surveyor evaluate when estimating house prices in Hurworth ?

This means house prices recorded at the Land Registry between July and October in 2012 was £205, 376, which is £4, 200 less than the price being asked. 3, Monk End Gardens, Croft On Tees, Darlington, Richmondshire, North Yorkshire, DL2 2SP a detached property sold for £395, 000 .
