HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Tyne And Wear and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is essentially the same survey.

If the Tyne And Wear property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any works or an extension, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, but it will give you comprehensive details of the Tyne And Wear property's state of repair as well as including more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing a farmhouse. What consequences will the home's cladding have on repairs?

Many buyers in Tyne And Wear have looked at purchasing a home with character. The age of a structure, however, can create difficulties for an owner. Houses employing traditional methods can be challenging to repair. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary, and it could also be necessary to find Materials suitable for the work. If the residence you are buying may require specialist maintenance, contact the surveyor for more detail.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I am purchasing a Tyne And Wear property and am concerned that the clay soil foundations have suffered some subsidence. Does a Property Survey discuss soil composition the report, and will the Surveyor advise on upkeep?

Subsidence is often the result of unseen, subterranean causes, including clay soil. Specific issues include consolidation, or the change in volume of soil resulting from water loss. Expansive and reactive types of clay soil can be troublesome. Expansive clay soil is particularly sensitive to shifts in water content, such as warping of floorboards. A Tyne And Wear surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. Patches of very wet soil can just as easily warp foundations, so care must be taken to ensure the overall moisture level of the clay soil around the foundations stays consistent.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We want to put in an offer on a place in Tyne And Wear. Is there any Sussex bond maintenance advice we should be aware of??

Brick-built Tyne And Wear buildings do benefit from many advantages. Unfortunately, they also show signs of both minor and serious issues, including weathering and sulphate expansion. For instance, diagonal cracking caused by ground movement and should be taken very seriously. SJL Brickwork at Unit 117i Wearfield Business & Innovation Centre, Sunderland Enterprise Pk, Sunderland, SR5 2TA should give an estimate for any work. Call them on 0191-516 6806.

As an example, header bond or basket weave bonds are both used in Tyne And Wear buildings. The apparent simplicity of brick repairs compared to plumbing or rewiring can lead to a DIY effort making a situation worse. Seek advice before undertaking such work, and do not disregard your surveyors advice.
