HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Yarm On Tees and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is effectively the same.

If the Yarm On Tees property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make an extension on the property, you should you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Yarm On Tees property's condition along with advice on structural defects , repairs and maintenance options .

If in doubt why not obtain a Yarm On Tees Home Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Timber damage by insect larvae

A resident warned us about bugs affecting some homes - Is a Building Survey advisable?

Yarm On Tees homes are not usually impacted by serious cases of vermin, but buying without any professional advice on the issue is not recommended. Regrettably, vermin can be very expensive to resolve and put your health in danger. An affected home may not always be easy to identify. As an example, mice are able to squeeze through even small gaps and holes, and quickly spread disease through their droppings. Remedies to pest problems can include insecticides and removal of infected furniture. The RICS surveyor may include notes on any signs of vermin or other pests in their report. It is, however, advisable that specific worries you may have be raised ASAP.

Shocking Electrics

When we viewed the home we are interested to buy it looked like there could be corrosion of the wiring - does a Yarm On Tees Homebuyer Report advise the electrics?

When preparing a Home Survey in Yarm On Tees a qualified surveyor will mention the electrical system if it is suspected that they are in a hazardous condition. This should include a by sight look-over of the unconcealed areas of the wiring as well as issues like verifying the category of any electrical fittings in bath or shower rooms or verifying the condition of a sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear. Looking at any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical installations conducted by a suitably qualified electrician should usually be part of the survey.

The IEE recommend that a Periodic Inspection should be carried out every 10 years (or every 5 if letting).

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing in Yarm On Tees. What will we need to take notice of when purchasing older property? What impact will the design have on maintenance?

Many buyers have looked at purchasing a home with character. Use of traditional methods, however, can occasionally give buyers second thoughts. Homes constructed with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be challenging to maintain. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary. Especially for Grade I listed property, Materials suitable for the work may be required. This may end up costing more than initially budgeted.
