HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Warkworth property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make substantial modifications on the property, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it will offer comprehensive details of the Warkworth property's general condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a Warkworth residential surveyor look for signs of water damage?

It is estimated that over two million homes are at a high risk of floods, and buyers and owners are understandably concerned.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures. An awareness of characteristics of the Warkworth area likely to affect the home also enables the chartered surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. The Environment Agency also publish details of previous flood warnings.

Landfill site near home

What should we be concerned about when buying a maisonette next to a refuse landfill site

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste e.g. domestic waste. Nobody ideally wants to live near one (4/5 people live under 2km away from one). Risks might include leaking underground tanks from petrol stations for example. Health problems such as congenital birth defects have been associated to landfill sites .

Warkworth RICS surveyors will examine structural issues linked to the landfill. Your solicitor will conduct environmental searches of the Environmental Agency databases and Northumberland Local Authority and address any concerns you may have .

Stone block wall damage

I am intending to put an offer in on a house constructed Wooton stone. What should we be particularly aware of?

From Spynie Sandstone to Red St.Bees Sandstone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. Issues which impact the lifespan of stone-built elements are as diverse as the stone varieties themselves. Stone quarried in the area is common to local Warkworth property, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county. Different stone types will also decay a different rates based on environmental conditions. For example, slate is more damp resistant than many other forms of stone, as is granite. You can request advice on the specific steps to be taken when a problem is identified. Common guidance may include use of traditional methods to maintain older walls.

Ask your surveyor for clarification if you are in doubt as to likely maintenance, particularly if the house in question is listed or located in a conservation area.
