HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Ashington and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Ashington property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make an extension, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap however it will give a more detailed analysis of the Ashington property's state of repair in addition to information on defects as well as maintenance options .

If in doubt get a Ashington Home Survey Quote online or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Conservation area

Are there any considerations we should check on if intending to buy a converted flat in Ashington in conservation area, particularly in respect of to property values?

There are many thousands official conservation areas in England and Wales that are designated and monitored by local authorities.

Home Buyers Surveys in Ashington need to have local knowledge of relevant local considerations and the connection they have on the home. Property values is usually significantly higher because of them being preserved.

Surveyors are expected advise if the planned purchase looks like it may be classified as such and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Homebuyer Report will advise the proper questions are conducted as part of the legal process. Out of keeping changes to the property may also be advised in your survey and these will be investigated in more detail by your lawyer.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is rain an issue in Ashington? And could it affect the property value?

As a frequent surveyor of houses in the area, I find it strange that the impact rain can have on Ashington homes is not considered by buyers. One indication that gutters are blocked is flaking or efflorescence on external walls. This can lead to a damp or flooded cellar.

These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to fix if dealt with quickly.

Building Surveys on houses

I am acquiring a un-loved regency terraced property in Ashington, is it best to get a full structural survey?

Structural surveys are now called Building Surveys. A HomeBuyer Report is detailed enough for a post 1950s unmodified Ashington house built out of standard construction materials. A Building Survey is the proper choice for the house described.

Typically a couple of days after a thorough site survey of any accessible parts, the surveyor's formal report is sent to you specifying any important details on the construction and uses of the house. Bear in mind that certain provisos exist with any survey as a qualified RICS surveyor cannot (unless owners consent provided) open up the fabric of the house for example, or investigate the internal state of any flues.
