HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Jesmond and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Jesmond property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out alterations, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Jesmond property's condition along with information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are planning to buy a 1988-built flat in Jesmond and spotted that the sitting room door frame was skewed. What subsidence information does the Jesmond property survey include?

Movement of a house on a structural level is called subsidence. Often, homes are erected with a variety of materials, each of which will contract at a varying rates.

A relatively small number of issues are usually found to be the cause of movement to a property. For example, water leaking from a broken drainpipe or mains pipe will clear away soil supporting the building structure. This reduces the volume of the subsoil, allowing the weight of the property to distort the supporting ground. Signs of potential subsidence include fresh cracks in brick or plaster.

Restoration work cannot begin until the original source of the movement is found. The removal of trees may make the problem worse, however, so professional advice should be sought. Existing trees must be well managed, and new trees should be planted at a safe distance from the exterior walls of the property. Place pine, birch and cherry trees, for example, at least 10m away. Underpinning

could be the only option in some cases, unfortunately. As an alternative to underpinning, piling, or mini-piling, uses concrete or steel poles that are driven down into more stable soil, to stop further movement. If the surveyor cannot give you a conclusive diagnosis, they will recommend that you engage the services of a structural engineer.

Building Surveys on houses

What is the reason in spending a bit more on the full structural survey when acquiring a extended terraced home near Jesmond as opposed to a HomeBuyer Report?

Regularly described as the Structural Survey by house buyers, it is now defunct and has actually been given a new moniker by RICS(Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors) and the correct term is now the Building Survey. Choose a Building Survey for the property referred to. The HomeBuyer Report has enough detail if buying a mid century or later Jesmond property of standard building materials. Be aware that a number provisos are integral with a property survey as a chartered surveyor wont be able to open up the structure of the house for example, or assess heating installations.

Conservation area

Will there be any concerns I would be advised to look into if intending to buy an extended house in Jesmond inside a conservation area ?

There are 9, 300 official conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are governed by the local authority.

Home Buyers Surveys in Jesmond need to possess sufficient knowledge of local area factors and any effect may have with the building and its value. House prices tends to be greater as a result of the areas being largely unspoilt However many areas are falling into a poor state e.g. the addition of PVC windows and doors

Surveyors will advise you whether the property is or might be is designated and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Jesmond Homebuyer Report will suggest the proper questions are carried out by your legal adviser. Unsympathetic adjustments to the building may also be advised but these are really more a investigated by your conveyancer.
