HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Shiremoor and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Shiremoor property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out an extension on the Shiremoor property, you should you choose a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Shiremoor property's condition as well as more detailed advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should I be worried about when buying a home in the region a landfill site

Sites used for landfill take many forms e.g. industrial refuse disposal. Of course nobody ideally wants to live near one (80% of people live under 2km away from one). Risks include complex organic chemicals. Health concerns like cancer have been linked to landfill sites .

Surveyors will examine structural issues connected with the site. Your conveyancing solicitor will commission environmental searches of the British Geological database as well as North Tyneside Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will the Chartered Surveyor examine on a stucco rendered regency home in Shiremoor that we intend to purchase.

Stucco is actually just smooth type of render. Normally stucco is applied to brick that sets to a smooth stone like appearance. The effect is very attractive and is often found on Victorian and Georgian buildings. Stucco is often prone to defect and Shiremoor Home Buyers Suveys sometimes reveal defects e.g. when movement of the underlying wall can lead to cracking of the surface

Another example of problems associated with stucco could result from the pressure from heavy loads such as cracking under concrete slate roofs. Re-coating problems with stucco may be difficult and costly as the skills are getting more difficult to find.

Window frame

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in Shiremoor what does a Condition Rating 1 mean for 'E5 - Windows' ?

An example of this is missing drip caps on windows. Where practicable, all windows are to be opened and closed, but not forced open, and vulnerable areas closely examined. The surveyor should make notes and advise the client whether it is possible to operate the window transoms/openings satisfactorily. The home buyer report is intended to be easy to read and understand. As buyers in Shiremoor are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. A 'traffic light' system of colour coding is used to confirm the seriousness of any issues included in the survey. Aspects of the property in good or excellent condition are marked as 'green' with a condition rating of 1, but regular upkeep may still be required.
