HomeBuyer Report

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

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

If the Stokesley property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any major works on the property, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, however it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Stokesley property's condition along with more detailed advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Stokesley, and think we saw signs of insects in the hallway - What should we do?

Any questions about pests affecting a Stokesley building may not be asked by the lawyer. This issue should be taken seriously. Signs may not be obvious, for example, small tunnels in wooded beams may indicate the presence of house longhorn beetles. Remedies can be disruptive to residents, and may require you to move out during the work in extreme cases. If you believe bed bugs, or any pest, may be present, request that your Stokesley surveyor pay close attention during the survey.

Other external areas of the property

On the HomeBuyer Report, can you give some examples of a green light rating defects for factors covered in Section E?

The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly, unlike some more complex survey reports. Red, amber and green ratings give house buyers indicate the severity of any defects or points of interest included in the report. A condition rating of 1 states that no repair work is needed, but this does not mean that no future work is required. Seasonal checks may still be appropriate to prevent deterioration. Some areas may be marked as 'Not inspected'. Where the surveyor is unable to gain access to some areas, e.g. the roof of a block of flats, these aspects of the report will not be completed.

For a Stokesley property, one issue is rotten railings. This category is used for external elements that require reporting that do not sit comfortably elsewhere in section E.

Stone block wall damage

Can Kentish Rag stone-built houses in Stokesley be a challenge. What issues should we be aware of, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

There are many of defects and issues associated with stone-built property. The problems which can plague poorly maintained stone vary considerably. 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. Choice of stone will impact the lifespan of a structure, for example, granite is more water resistant that most other stones. Upkeep advice often given in a survey includes repointing mortar with a suitable material.
