HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is basically the same the same survey.

If the Bedlington property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it does give a more detailed analysis of the Bedlington property's general condition and it includes advice on defects and maintenance options .

House Prices

Is £118, 297 in the right ball park price to pay for a house in NE22 for and What things will a qualified surveyor take into account when estimating house prices in Bedlington ?

There are a huge number of issues which could positively or negatively affect house prices like the property's kerb appeal or issues with drainage. As an indicator, one can try to set against house values registered at the Land Registry for similar properties.

The average house price registered between July and October in 2012 was £117, 897, which is £400 less than the amount being asked. The average for houses and flats was £109, 743. 7, Nottingham Court, Bedlington, Northumberland, Northumberland, NE22 6PE a detached property was sold in the last 3 months for £152, 500 .

The most reliable way for you to get a formal property valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) by default. Your surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (mandatory since 30 April 2011).

The qualified surveyor should attend the property as well as factoring in the wealth of factors affecting the value of property.

Other external areas of the property

For a HomeBuyer Report on a Bedlington house or flat what could a an amber light rating mean for 'E9 - Other' ?

The part of the HomeBuyer Report mentions other aspects that do not sit comfortably elsewhere in section E. Contact your surveyor if you require more information. A conservatory's concrete floor that is cracked or spalled is one defect applicable to this section. A condition rating of two means that the element covered will need work at some point, but this may not be urgent. The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly, and avoid potentially unfamiliar technical language. The surveyor uses a scale between 1 and 3 to show to what extent each defect requires attention.

Building Surveys on houses

I am investing in a substantially modified Victorian bungalow home in Bedlington, do I need to upgrade to a full structural survey?

Full Structural Surveys are now called the Building Surveys. The HomeBuyer Report has enough detail if buying a non period unmodified house of standard construction materials and methods. RICS would recommend that you get a Building Survey for the property described.

Be aware that one or two limitations exist with a property survey - a chartered surveyor cannot (unless safe to do so) force or open up the structure of the property nor can he/she comment on efficiency of gas installations.
