HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Tynemouth and which is cheaper?

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

If the Tynemouth property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make alterations on the Tynemouth property, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap but it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Tynemouth property's condition as well as including an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying in Tynemouth, and the home's foundations have been built on clay soil. Does a Tynemouth Property Survey discuss soil composition the report?

Without due care and attention, foundations dug into clay soil can quickly suffer adverse affects. Issues range from compression of layers of the sub-soil to swelling of the soil, both of which can put a property's foundations under great strain. Expansive and reactive types of clay soil can be troublesome. Expansive clay soil is particularly sensitive to shifts in water content. The real impact of this could reveal itself as anything from unremarkable warping of floorboards, to complete structural failure. A Tynemouth surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. Parcels of dry 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.

Asbestos roof tiles

I suspect there may be a risk of asbestos sealant present in the flat. What is asbestos and can it be easily removed?

Asbestos is a deleterious fibrous material. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and were commonly found in the building materials for example shed roofs.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has very good resistance to chemical damage properties, it may be found in soil vent pipes for example.

All forms including Chrysotile are ultimately deadly and might lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. If discovered, one must be careful however, not to remove asbestos. Professional advice should be sought without delay.

Surveyors will not test for asbestos on a survey. However they will mention suspected asbestos risks and will suggest experts are consulted.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Poor roof maintenance brings up bad memories for us. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. What will our building surveyor in Tynemouth investigate during the survey?

This is frequently addressed by surveyors. Many residential properties could unfortunately be experiencing roofing woes. All aspects of the roof should be reviewed, from the trusses to the ceiling joists, and where the matter is serious, it should be rectified promptly.

Expensive quotes for roofing jobs (such as replacing rotten rafters or soffits) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases, this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a contractor in Tynemouth for the job itself.
