HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Dunston and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same.

If the Dunston property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any alterations, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap however it does provide you with a thorough analysis of the Dunston property's state of repair and it includes advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Will my survey give a property valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of professional fees) and how does the surveyor work it out?

Dunston Homebuyer Reports an independent valuation and will also include a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as a standard part of the survey. To estimate the correct valuation the valuer will combine local property market knowledge and other considerations relating to the property for instance: size Surveyors also examine construction type and will make certain other assumptions like the ground is not land filled.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Additional local Dunston area assumptions, for example connection to sewers, are made in addition to any Dunston environmental issues like busy roads, also being considered.

Traditionally built property

I am buying a property in Dunston. Will the age of the building be an issue?

For houses in Dunston built before the 20th Century, age can occasionally give buyers second thoughts, and Property featuring traditional methods can be difficult to upkeep. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced. This can result in longer-term maintenance obligations. If you are uncertain, speak to your chartered surveyor for more information.

Damaged Render

What defects will the Chartered Surveyor look for on a stucco rendered house in Dunston that we intend to purchase.

Stucco is actually just smooth type of solid render. Commonly stucco render is applied to underlying red brick hardens to a smooth flat finish. The effect is very attractive and is common on some Victorian and Georgian houses. Expert tradesmen who work with it say it is almost exactly the same as plaster or mortar to apply. It may contain lime (which makes it set harder) in it in addition to plant fibres to help stop cracks. Stucco is often prone to defect and Surveyors commonly discover any number of problems like trapped moisture resulting in internal damp problems needing repair. Other issues may include when the render has been taken down to ground level bypassing the DPC or Damp Proof Course. Remedying Stucco problems can be expensive as the skills are becoming harder to find.
