HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Callerton and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is basically the same the same survey.

If the Callerton property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make substantial modifications, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, but it will offer exhaustive analysis of the Callerton property's general condition in addition to an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are buying a house in Callerton and noticed cracks along one external wall. What subsidence-related matters will the Callerton Surveyor review?

Subsidence is movement in a house's foundations. In most cases, subsidence can be remedied quite easily. The builder will likely return to a new house within a few months so that they can make minor repairs caused by the settlement.

Many properties develop superficial cracks in a wall or floor, due to settlement. Signs of potential subsidence include new or growing cracks in exterior brickwork.

Identifying the cause of subsidence is the first step to its solution.Repairing leaking drains, water mains or broken downpipes, which are the cause of the subsidence, should be all that is needed to stabilise the home. You may need to monitor (and measure) the cracks for as much as a year before the picture becomes entirely clear.

House Prices

I am planning to purchase a house in Callerton (NE5). The vendor is asking £110, 029. What will the Callerton RICS surveyor take into account when conducting a survey ?

Any number of issues which could have a bearing on the price of property ranging from noise from flight paths to the architectural style of the property. It is useful to put side by side house prices achieved in the nearby area for similar houses.

The means house prices recorded at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £104, 429, which is £5, 600 less than the price being asked. The combined house/flat average was £98, 875. 38, Swanton Close, Newcastle Upon Tyne, Newcastle Upon Tyne, Tyne And Wear, NE5 4SL a detached property sold for £190, 000 .

The most accurate way for home buyers to get an independent property valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report (or Property Valuation Report) which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as an inclusive part. A chartered surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme, which reinforces professional standards.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

As well as reporting on condition, will I get a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as rebuilding a retaining wall) and how does the surveyor work it out?

Homebuyer Reports include a surveyor valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as an integral part of the report. To work out the value of the property your independent surveyor will combine knowledge of Callerton and other considerations about the property e.g. size Surveyors also reflect on materials used and will make certain other assumptions e.g. the property isn't on a land fill site.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee ; call for more info. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Further area assumptions, like connection to sewers, are made in addition to any Callerton environmental concerns like local Callerton industrial considerations, which are also considered as part of the valuation.
