HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Rothbury and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Rothbury property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it does provide you with a thorough analysis of the Rothbury property's condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

Can Clipsham stone-built homes be difficult to repair. Which major matters should we consider?

Stone walls often appear more robust than they are. Defects affecting stone-built Rothbury buildings can vary, displacement being relatively common. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay.

Regular courses of ashlar (cut stone) are often used as a finish to irregular stone walls. Stone walls require regular maintenance, such as careful removal of nearby trees and plants. Be careful not to pull these

up by the roots, as they could already be intertwined with the wall's foundations, which will cause more damage.

Purchasers renovating Rothbury buildings should be aware that a stone matching service is operated by the British Geological Survey, as part of the Building Stone Assessment GeoReport. To source stone quarried in Rothbury, you can contact local suppliers.

Landfill site near home

What should we be worried about when purchasing a flat next to a rubbish tip

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste e.g. commercial waste material. No one wants to live near one (4/5 people live within 1.5m of one!). Risks include hazardous chemicals. Health concerns like gut problems have been associated with landfill sites .

Surveys in Rothbury will examine structural problems resulting from the landfill. Your legal representative will carry out environmental searches of the Environmental Agency data sets and Northumberland Local Authority and address any concerns you may have .

Timber damage by insect larvae

My housemate spotted signs of vermin in the hall. Is a HomeBuyer Report advisable?

Pests like house longhorn beetle may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Rothbury. An affected house may not always be easy to identify. As an example, house longhorn beetles can be identified by evidence of small tunnels through beams and floorboards, burrowed by the larvae. Remedies to bug or other pest issues can include use of poison. Rather than pulling out, it may be possible to agree a reduction in the purchase price to cover the cost of remedy.
