HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Killingworth and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Killingworth property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any significant alterations, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Killingworth property's general condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

I know that Killingworth subsidence could be an issue. How could this affect the property, and what subsidence information does the Killingworth property survey include?

Movement of the foundations of a home is called subsidence. Additionally, most homes in Killingworth are erected with a variety of materials. These will contract at different rates.

New cracks wider than 3mm to the external walls of the property., or cracks which were stable, but are showing signs of fresh movement, may indicate subsidence. Signs of potential subsidence include sticking doors or windows.

Restoration work cannot begin until the original source of the movement is found. Removing or even pruning the tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. 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. Structural brickwork may need to be dismantled

and rebuilt, or more cosmetic areas can effectively be repaired with resin filling in the cracks. This can also be time-consuming, and inconvenient. Your surveyor may suggest that you talk to an arborist to find out the best cause of action if trees or other plant life is the suspected cause.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Poor roof maintenance caused problems in a house we used to own. What should we be concerned about during the survey work?

This is a common concern for buyers in Killingworthwho know how costly roofing work can be. Homes throughout Killingworth could feature roofing problems. From trusses to ridge flashing, every element of the roof should be reported on. The building surveyors could suggest that some of the faults must be dealt with immediately.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. A roofing contractor with a good reference should be able to assist with a quote.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Which Killingworth Surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate and how does the surveyor work it out?

A Homebuyer Report will contain an impartial valuation and a reinstatement cost. To fully consider the value of the property the valuer will use local property market knowledge and other factors relating to the property for instance: accommodation The surveyor will also consider construction type and draw upon key assumptions e.g. the ground is not land filled.

A Building Survey won't include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee by request. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Additional local area conjectures, like connection to sewers, are made in addition to any environmental problems like busy roads, also being considered.
