HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Nunthorpe and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same.

If the Nunthorpe property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make alterations, you should you commission a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Nunthorpe property's condition as well as advice on structural defects , repairs and maintenance options .

If in doubt get a Nunthorpe Survey Quote online or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Landfill site near home

What should I be aware of when buying a flat next to a refuse tip

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste including commercial rubbish. Nobody wants to live near one (80% of people live under 2km away from one). Worries might include complex organic chemicals. Potential health issues such as spina bifida have been associated to landfill sites .

Surveyors will examine structural defects linked to the landfill. Your conveyancer will commission environmental searches of the Landmark database as well as Redcar and Cleveland Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .

Deteriorated timber

In the HomeBuyer Report what are the usual a green light rating defects affecting 'E8 - Other joinery and finishes' ?

Quite a common example is clay tile vents which are missing or ineffective. Section E8 covers more decorative aspects of the property's exterior, inspected with the aid of binoculars where appropriate. Fascias, soffits and eaves are reported on.

The format of the RICS HomeBuyer Report is clear and easy to read, unlike less prescriptive surveys. These may offer more complex detail, but they are also less useful for home buyers deciding whether or not to purchase a Nunthorpe house or flat. Three colour coded ratings give an understanding of the seriousness of any issues included in the survey. A 'green' condition rating of 1 confirms that no repairs are required. Elements of Section E marked as condition rating 1 may however still require regular maintenance. Some areas may be marked as 'Not inspected'. The HomeBuyer Report has a standard format, which the surveyor will complete according to the nuances of the particular residence, omitting sections as necessary.

Damaged Render

What will my Property Surveyor be focused on, on a stipple rendered (stucco) house in Nunthorpe that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is actually just dense render. Usually stucco render is layered over brick hardens to form a flat surface, often then trowled to give the appearance of stone blocks. Stucco is highly aesthetic and is was often applied to Regency houses for example. it can be prone to defect and Nunthorpe Home Buyers Suveys frequently reveal any number of problems such as lateral pattern like cracking that follows the lines of mortar in the brickwork. Other issues could be when water gets in under DPCs which results in detachment. Remedying Stucco problems can be dear as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are becoming harder to find.
