HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Newark and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is essentially the same survey.

If the Newark property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it will give an in-depth analysis of the Newark property's general condition in addition to an opinion on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

If in doubt get a Newark House Survey Quote on our site or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Stone block wall damage

I am buying a stone-walled home in Newark. Which problems should we consider, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

Britain's geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Portland Hard Blue Limestone to Dukes Gritstone. Defects affecting stone-built Newark property can vary, stone faces being relatively common. The two main forms of mortared stone wall construction found in Newark are regular and irregular.

Dry stone construction is used in garden walls and field boundaries, but is rarely employed for inhabited structures.

Regular courses of ashlar (cut stone) are often used as a finish to irregular stone walls, with mortared rubble or brick hidden behind. Maintenance tips include replacing missing or badly worn stones. Stone walls can also be problematic for buyers interested in extending or altering their new home, as matching stone may be hard or costly to source.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Bantycock Opencast Mine, Jericho Works, Bowbridge Road, Newark, Nottinghamshire, NG24 3BZ, which quarries Gypsum, for details. Call 01636 670200 for more information.

For more information, contact a Newark expert. For example, Stone.co.uk Ltd, Brunel Dr, Newark, NG24 2EG (Phone: 01636 612427) may help.

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller's agent said there could be brown asbestos toilet cistern in existence at the property. What is asbestos and is it hazardous?

Asbestos is a noxious fibrous mineral. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) are often building materials e.g. eaves. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has a range of useful characteristic heat resistance qualities and it may be found in ironing boards.

All forms are hazardous and can lead to lung cancer or scarring of the lung following prolonged exposure.

If found, care should be taken not to disturb the asbestos. Professional advice should be sought as soon as possible. Surveyors cannot verify the presence of asbestos during the survey. Your surveyor will mention the risk of asbestos during the Newark survey and should suggest experts are consulted.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

A property we intend to buy is built on clay soil. What should we expect a Newark Property Survey to include, and will the Surveyor advise on upkeep?

The content of soil around the foundations of a home in Newark can have unwanted consequences. Specific issues include consolidation, or the change in volume of soil resulting from water loss. Given the moisture content does have such a great affect of clay-rich soil, owners should be aware that defects can arise if environmental conditions change. Signs like warped window frames in the kitchen or cracks along the kitchen wall can be early indications of very serious structural issues. Fortunately, there are steps a home owner can take. Your surveyor should refer to maintenance options in their report, like checking that the downpipe drains correctly. Parcels of wet soil can just as easily warp foundations, so care must be taken to ensure the overall moisture level of the clay soil around the foundations stays consistent.
