HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Newcastle upon Tyne and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same survey.

If the Newcastle upon Tyne property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make significant alterations, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it does give you a thorough analysis of the Newcastle upon Tyne property's state of repair in addition to advice on defects and maintenance options .

English Heritage

We are purchasing a property close to Camp On Grindstone Law , will this affect the property's value?

Other local monuments of importance are Deserted Village At Silvington, Gardner'S Houses Settlement and Market Cross.. The RICS surveyor will include all regional criteria when conducting homebuyer report in Newcastle upon Tyne. Visit the English Heritage website for further information on Camp On Grindstone Law.

Gas flame

Will the Newcastle upon Tyne surveyor inspect the serviceability of the gas mains supply?

The RICS chartered surveyor will visually examine any easily accessible parts of the system. This means things like gas heaters at the home, as well as gas related appliances e.g. balanced flues. A Newcastle upon Tyne RICS surveyor will not remove any external fittings or housings and will not run any tests on the gas system. Most people are aware that gas is potentially deadly, if you have any worries about gas fittings of any type, contact a gas safe engineer.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

I'm confused - which surveys include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as rebuilding a retaining wall) and how is it worked out

A Homebuyer Report will contain a valuation in addition to a reinstatement cost. To work out the correct valuation your RICS valuer will refer to awareness of the Newcastle upon Tyne property market and other factors about the property for instance: size Surveyors also examine construction type and will use key assumptions, for example no significant problems.

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

Additional local area conjectures, for example services, are made in addition to any local environmental concerns like local mining issues, which are also considered as part of the valuation.
