HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Amble and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Amble property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out alterations, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give a more detailed analysis of the Amble property's state of repair as well as including more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does a qualified RICS surveyor inspect the state of the gas installations?

A local surveyor will visually survey any accessible parts of the gas system. This will include the meter location/position at the home, as well as gas related appliances e.g. fixed external ventilation hearths. Any fittings won't be undone. The gas system won't be tested. Most people are aware that gas is potentially dangerous, should there be any concerns relating to gas installations, call a gas safe engineer without delay.

Northumberland based local firms include Gerrard and Slaughter of 54A Robsons Way, Amble, Morpeth, Northumberland Tel. 07968097689 and W A Moore of 40 Acklington Street, Amble, Morpeth, Northumberland Tel. 07914811182.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Should I get a separate valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of rebuilding a boundary wall) and what does it include?

The Homebuyer Report contains a valuation in addition to a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as part of the survey. To properly appraise the valuation the valuer will use awareness of the Amble property market and other considerations relating to the property for instance: style of architecture Surveyors also reflect on style of architecture and use other assumptions such as it is connected to mains services. Surveyors disregard things like furnishings e.g. carpets.

Additional local area conjectures like the access roads not being in private control, are made in addition to any Amble environmental problems like flightpaths, which will also be factored in.

A Building Survey won't include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee by request. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Shocking Electrics

When we saw the home we want to acquire we saw that there might be an overload of the fuses/fusebox; does Homebuyer Report in Amble write anything on the general state of the electrical system?

When conducting a Home Survey in Amble the home surveyor should remark on the overall electrical system if it is clear that they are in an unsafe state. This should include an overview look-over of any uncovered areas of the wiring and other possible problems relating to things like the mains. Reporting on any evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical installations conducted by a suitably qualified electrician will usually form part of the survey. Examining the documentation from the most recent PIR carried out by a suitably qualified electrician should usually be part of the Homebuyer report in Amble .

The Institute of Electrical Engineers recommend that a Periodic Inspection is carried out every ten years (or every 5 if letting).
