HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Bamburgh and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Bamburgh property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make major works, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it does provide you with a thorough analysis of the Bamburgh property's general condition and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a Bamburgh surveyor check for flood damage?

A wide variety of factors can cause flooding, from inadequate drainage to tidal activity. Those planning to buy in affected areas should weigh up their exposure. The Environment Agency maintain a flood risk alert service, with regular updated risk assessments, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures.

Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. correctly installed window and door frames. The RICS surveyor may ask the agent if the residence has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will insects affect the purchase price of a property in Bamburgh. What should we do?

Properties are not usually impacted by serious cases of infestations, but buying without any professional advice on the issue is not recommended.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can be costly to fix. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months, for example, bed bugs do not live in mattresses, as in commonly thought, but in cracks in the bed frame, or around the room, and will feed on the host at night. Remedies to bug or other pest issues can include traps.

Shocking Electrics

When we viewed the thirties house we are interested to buy, the agent said that there is an old fuse board - does a Bamburgh survey report on any faults with the electrics?

During a Bamburgh Home Survey your RICS surveyor will comment on the overall electrical system if it is clear that the electrics are in an unsafe state. A Home surveyor should also provide detail on possible problems relating to things like whether there is an on-peak/off-peak mains supply. Ascertaining the whereabouts of any documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical installations handled by an electrician on the property will usually be part of the survey.
