Which Property Survey is the right choice?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    A RICS Homebuyer Report is the best choice when you are buying a home constructed from conventional building materials i.e. tile & brick, in reasonable repair and not over 100 years in age.

HomeBuyer Report

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

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

If the Cramlington property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, you should you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Cramlington property's state of repair as well as an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

A leaky roof brings up bad memories for us, and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. What aspects of the loft will be looked into?

Residential property in Cramlington that are otherwise ideal can be hiding serious roofing problems. From sheeting to tie beams, every element of the roof must be reviewed. Your chartered surveyors may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Cramlington, but it is a health and safety necessity. A contractor can provide an estimate. Speak to Robson Bryan of 126 Melness Rd, Hazlerigg, Newcastle Upon Tyne, NE13 7BL on 0191-236 6947 for details.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I have read that clay soil can be the cause of many issues for properties in Cramlington. Can we expect the Home Buyers Survey to mention this, and will the Surveyor advise on upkeep?

There are several concerns associated with clay soil, with soil compaction or compression and movement of clay soil layers resulting from changes in their water content being relatively common. Evidence of clay soil-related problems can sometimes be found throughout a property, such as widening cracks. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Cramlington, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the house. If you are particularly concerned about a crack or other sign of movement, the surveyor can also report on whether it is recent, or an indication of much earlier subsidence.

Gas flame

Will the qualified surveyor check out the serviceability of the gas supply?

A chartered surveyor will visually check out the accessible parts of the gas system. This means things like the mains gas installation where relevant, as well as gas related appliances e.g. the condition of gas piping in loft spaces. If there are any fittings they however, won't be removed. The gas system won't be tested in any way. Anything related to gas should be handled with care as it can be dangerous, should you have any concerns about gas, call a gas engineer without delay.
