HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Longbenton and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Longbenton property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any alterations, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, but it will give you comprehensive details of the Longbenton property's general condition and it includes advice on defects and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

There may be bugs at the building in Longbenton we're buying, but we are not certain - Should we get a surveyor?

Scare stories about property pests are plentiful, it is tempting to treat signs of pests such as cockroaches as minor annoyances. When purchasing a property, this matter should be borne in mind. It may not be obvious that a property is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked, for example, mice are able to squeeze through even small gaps and holes, and quickly spread disease through their droppings. Remedies to an infestation can include traps and destruction of tainted materials. If you strongly suspect an issue with cockroaches, or any pest, speak to your home surveyor

Conservation area

Will there be any problems I would be advised to be aware of when purchasing a flat in Longbenton in conservation area ?

There are many thousands official conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are designated by the local authority. Longbenton surveyors must possess sufficient knowledge of relevant local considerations and any connection may have on the building and its value. The price of property will probably be higher than non conservation area equivalents owing to them being unspoilt. However a growing number are falling into poor condition e.g. badly maintained and potholed roads and pavements

Property surveyors will advise you if the planned purchase looks to be so designated and Section I of a Homebuyer Report will advise additional due diligence and enquiries are conducted during the legal process. Unsympathetic modifications to the property should be advised in your survey and these will be investigated in more detail by the lawyer.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact can rainfall have on a Longbenton property? Will the property surveyor report on this? Could damaged downspouts lower the property value?

Regular rainfall is common in Longbenton and across the country, but heavy rainfall and the effect it can have on a home are ignored by house purchasers. If you have only seen the home in on a clear day, obvious defects may be harder to find. Blocked rainwater goods can result in water damage.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to repair, unless they are not cared for. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.
