HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Riding Mill and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same.

If the Riding Mill property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out major works on the property, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it will offer comprehensive details of the Riding Mill property's state of repair along with information on defects and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is wet weather an issue in Riding Mill? Will the building survey report on this? Also, if there is a problem, will they be expensive to fix?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, rain and the effect it can have on a home are usually overlooked by property buyers. If you have only seen the property you intend to purchase in dry weather, problems are unlikely to be visible. This can lead to staining of wallpaper and damp.

In most cases, guttering issues are usually easy to fix if dealt with quickly. If poorly maintained, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and will get increasingly difficult to successfully resolve.

Stone block wall damage

Can homes built with stone generate lots of maintenance costs for owners? Are there specific defects to bear in mind, and what will the survey reveal?

There is a long list of defects and issues associated with stone-built property. Defects affecting stone-built houses in Riding Mill can vary, weathered stone being relatively common. Irregular stone walls are found throughout the county, and can require more care and attention that regular, brick-like stone walls due greater impact the weather can have on exposed mortar. Advice for better upkeep will vary according to the needs of individual property, such as fast replacement of any stones which have become loose.

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 Riding Mill should be able to supply local stone.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Ladycross Quarry, Slaley, Hexham, Northumberland, NE47 0BY, quarrying Sandstone, for details. Call 01434 673302 for more information.

Timber damage by insect larvae

There may be pests at the house we're buying, but we are not certain - Will a house surveyor look into this?

Pests like thrips may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Riding Mill. Regrettably, pests can be costly to fix and affect the health of residents. An affected home may not always be easy to identify. As an example, dust mites make they habitation in furnishings and bedding, and are a common source of allergies. Remedies to a serious infestation can include professional cleaning and removal of infected furniture.
