HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Gosforth and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same survey.

If the Gosforth property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any works or an extension, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will offer a thorough analysis of the Gosforth property's state of repair as well as an opinion on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

House Prices

I am going to buy a property in Gosforth, NE3 for around £166, 698. What will a Gosforth surveyor take into account when conducting a survey ?

There are many factors which could positively or negatively affect house prices ranging from noise from flight paths to the number and size of bedrooms at the home. It often helps to look at values achieved in the area for comparable properties. The mean flat price registered at the Land Registry between July and October in 2012 was £151, 898, which is £14, 800 less than the selling price (£266, 679 was the blended house/flat average). 1A, Woodbine Avenue, Newcastle Upon Tyne, Newcastle Upon Tyne, Tyne And Wear, NE3 4EU a leasehold flat recently sold for £148, 000 .

The most cost effective way for you to get a formal home valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation by default.

A professional chartered surveyor should go to the house in addition to considering the variety of area influences that have a bearing on property values.

Gas flame

Does the RICS chartered surveyor check out the condition of the gas installations?

Your local surveyor will locate and visually look at the easily accessible parts of the gas system. The surveyor will look at gas heaters at the property, in addition to gas affiliated appliances, for instance prefabricated flues. The gas fittings however, won't be detached. The system will not be tested at all. Needless to say, gas can be fatal, should there be any worries about gas fittings, call a gas safe engineer.

Gosforth based gas engineers include Alan Hale Plumbing and Central Heating Ltd of Westwood Cottage, Calderbridge, Seascale, Cumbria Tel. 01946841540 and Gainfords Plumbing & Heating Limited of 13 Hallsenna Road, Seascale, Cumbria Tel. 01946727271.

Asbestos roof tiles

The estate agent stated there is a danger of flaky asbestos roof tiles in existence at the building. Which types of asbestos are a concern, will this be a hazard and does the Gosforth building survey report on it?

Asbestos is a noxious substance. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and are often found in the building materials for example vinyl flooring. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has a range of useful characteristic including tensile strength properties, it may be found in asbestos blocks. Most asbestos was imported from the US.

All forms including white ( Chrysotile) are ultimately pernicious and may lead to lung cancer or pleural disease following prolonged exposure. Contrary to breathing in a single fibre is not deadly.

If found, care should be taken on no account to damage it and expert advice should be sought urgently. Professional removal of it will be expensive but absolutely must be carried out by trained experts. Surveyors cannot test for asbestos during the survey. However, surveyors will mention possible asbestos risks and will offer advice.
