HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Wallsend and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Wallsend property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any substantial modifications, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it will give exhaustive analysis of the Wallsend property's state of repair as well as more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should I be worried about when purchasing a flat next to a landfill site

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes e.g. inert refuse disposal. Of course nobody would want to live near one (most people do live near one). Risks include tars and other hazardous materials. Health concerns like downs syndrome have been associated to landfill sites .

Surveyors will examine structural issues connected with the landfill. Your lawyer will conduct conveyancing searches of the Environmental Agency databases and South Tyneside Local Authority and address any concerns you may have .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

What is subsidence? What are the risks, and what subsidence-related defects will my HomeBuyer Report review?

Movement of the foundations of a structure is called subsidence. Most homes in Wallsend are erected with a variety of materials, and these will have varying rates of shrinkage.

In areas of clay soil, a dry spell will lower the water table. This will dry, contracting the soil around the property as it does so, straining the foundations of the home and which can result in movement. A sudden, severe shift in weather can also impact a house susceptible to further settlement, either because the structural integrity is already compromised, or due to the use of cheaper materials.

Identifying the cause of subsidence is the first step to its solution.This is not always as costly as some buyers fear.Removing or even pruning any tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Damaged but non-structural elements should be filled and re-weatherproofed. Chartered surveyors should be able to identify a subsidence problem, while structural engineers may also be required.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The rat-trap bond walls on this converted apartment might need repairs. What are the possible consequences?

Brick-constructed apartments do benefit from many advantages. However, they can also experience considerable issues, from crypto-florescence to thermal movement. For example, diagonal cracking caused by ground movement and may require immediate attention. S F Bricklaying Services at Broad La, Pelsall, Walsall, WS4 1AD should give an estimate for any work. Call them on 07814 194608.

Brick-constructed property have been used across the country for centuries, leading to a number of approaches and materials. As an example, common bond, which is made up of stretchers (long faced bricks) with headers (the short face of the brick) every 6 courses or rows. It may be appropriate to renegotiate the price of a property if a survey reveals even superficial brick wall problems.
