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 .

House Prices

There is a detached property in NE2 - Jesmond with an asking price of £257, 894. What will a Jesmond surveyor allow for when calculating house prices in Jesmond ?

There are many factors that can affect property values for instance the total square meterage of the home or the status of the central heating. It may help to look at house values achieved in the nearby area for comparable properties.

The average house price completed between July and October in 2012 was £251, 594, which is £6, 300 less than the amount being asked. The house/flat average was £200, 361. 1, Halleypike Close, Newcastle Upon Tyne, Newcastle Upon Tyne, Tyne And Wear, NE7 7GG a detached property sold for £420, 000 .

The most reliable way for home buyers to get an accurate home valued is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation as standard. A local surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (established register of valuers).

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying a home in Jesmond but are worried about pests. Do we need a chartered surveyor?

Pests like cockroaches may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Jesmond.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can be costly to fix. Signs may not be obvious, woodworm, or larvae of the common furniture beetle, may be identified after finding neat small holes in wood, accompanied by piles of wood dust beneath. Treatment for bug or other pest issues may include use of poison. Your home surveyor may report on signs of infestation, especially if you have raised your concerns beforehand.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

What consequence does clay soil have on a house's foundations? What should we expect a Jesmond HomeBuyer Report to include?

Surveyors handle more questions relating to subsidence than any other topic, and clay soil is a major contributing factor to the problem. There may be little evidence of underlying defects. If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Jesmond house's foundations, leading to bowing, cracks and severe structural damage. Steps like even minor landscaping so that the ground slopes away from the property can help maintain clay-rich soil, but a purchaser should discuss specifics with the surveyor if extensive upkeep is warranted. Patches of very wet soil can just as easily warp foundations, so care must be taken to ensure the overall moisture level of the clay soil around the foundations stays consistent.
