Which Building Survey should you choose?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Gosforth

    A Homebuyer Report should be chosen when planning to buy a property constructed from conventional materials i.e. tile & brick, not dilapidated and constructed after 1900.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Gosforth

    A Building Survey (often referred to as a Full Structural Survey in Gosforth) is also conducted by a MRICS/FRICS surveyor but is more thorough. Opt for this when buying a non standard e.g. wood frame homes.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Gosforth

    This is an impartial valuation . This report is chosen by mortgage free buyers or someone needing a formal valuation e.g. for probate.

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 .

Damage resulting from flooding

Will our Gosforth HomeBuyer Report investigate possible flooding damage?

A wide variety of factors can cause floods, from inadequate drainage to tidal activity. Both property purchasers and home owners in areas at risk of flooding are right to be worried. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes. Flood water can enter a Gosforth house through several routes, including badly fitted air bricks.

The GroundSure Flood Report is one of several risk screening reports designed to provide an overview of whether a Gosforth house lies within an area of potential or previous flood risk, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.

Landfill site near home

What should we be fearful of if buying a maisonette next to a rubbish tip

Landfill Sites take many forms including inert rubbish disposal. Nobody would want to live near one (80% of people live within 1.5m of one!). Worries include structurally instability. Health problems like spina bifida have been linked to landfill sites .

Gosforth RICS surveyors will find structural problems resulting from the site. Your legal representative will carry out environmental searches of the Environmental Agency database and Newcastle upon Tyne Local Authority and address any concerns you may have .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a survey include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for site clearance) and how is it worked out

A Homebuyer Report on a Gosforth property will contain a valuation and a Reinstatement Cost as part of the survey. In order to determine the property's value the valuer will call upon experience of property in Gosforth as well as other factors relating to the property e.g. state of repair Surveyors also reflect on certain fixtures and fittings and make certain key assumptions, for example the building connected to mains services such as electricity.

A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Further Gosforth assumptions, for example water and drainage connectivity, are made as well as any significant Gosforth environmental concerns like industrial buildings, which will also be factored in.
