HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Newton Aycliffe and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Newton Aycliffe property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make an extension, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, but it does give you comprehensive details of the Newton Aycliffe property's condition in addition to information on defects and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Newton Aycliffe, and think we saw signs of vermin in the bathroom. Should we get a surveyor?

Newton Aycliffe homes are generally free of pests, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. This matter should be taken seriously. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months. For example, silverfish are common in damp kitchens and bathrooms, but only appear at night, and can therefore be difficult to spot. Treatment for insect infestation may include removal of infected furniture.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a Building survey in Newton Aycliffe include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for reconstructing a garage) and what will it include?

The Homebuyer Report contains a property valuation and a reinstatement cost as part of the survey. To be able to determine an accurate estimate of the value of the building your RICS valuer will pair in depth understanding of the Newton Aycliffe market as well as other factors relating to the property e.g. style of architecture Surveyors also evaluate construction type and will make certain key assumptions such as there are no damaging materials.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee by request. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The valuation also assumes that there aren't any costly legal problems e.g. no laws are broken by intended use of property. Such concerns will be unravelled by your solicitor or licensed conveyancer..

Further area conjectures, such as stairway access to a maisonette or problematic roads and access, are made in addition to environmental issues like intrusive noises or smells, also being considered.

Gas flame

Will the chartered surveyor check the serviceability of the gas supply?

Yes. The qualified surveyor will locate and visually check out the accessible parts of the system. This will mean gas related areas such as whether the mains is connected as part of the survey, as well as gas affiliated fixtures e.g. chimney breasts. Any gas fittings however, won't be undone. Of course, gas can be fatal, should there be any worries about gas fittings of any type, contact a gas safe engineer.

Regulations legally require landlords to complete appliance and installation inspections annually and punishments for failure to comply are criminal .
