HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Penshaw and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Penshaw property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any works or an extension on the property, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Penshaw property's condition in addition to advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

The average house price registered in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £142, 245, which is £4, 700 more than the asking price. 28, Barnwell View, Herrington Burn, Houghton Le Spring, Sunderland, Tyne And Wear, DH4 7FB a detached property sold for £260, 000 .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Will my survey give a property valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes

A Homebuyer Report will contain a (registered valuer) surveyor valuation and a reinstatement cost estimate. To work out the valuation the surveyor will use local Penshaw market factors and other considerations relating to the property for instance: square metres.

Surveyors also examine construction methods and will draw upon other assumptions, for example there being no significant defects. Surveyors will disregard certain things like sales incentives. The valuation also assumes that there is an absence of any significant legal problems e.g. there being no outstanding claims. Such concerns will be unravelled by your solicitor during the legal process.

Further Penshaw conjectures, for example services, are made in addition to any local environmental issues like nearby railway tracks, also being considered.

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

Gas flame

Does a surveyor check out the safety of the gas heaters?

Your qualified RICS surveyor will locate and visually check out the accessible parts of the gas system. The survey will include the mains gas installation where relevant, as well as gas connected appliances for example - ventilation of flue (if blocked). External covers however, won't be dislodged. Needless to say, gas can be hazardous, should there be any concerns about gas fittings, call a gas safe engineer.

The Gas Safety (Installation & Use) Regulations 1998 stipulate that all landlords are obligated to conduct appliance and installation inspections every year and punishments for failure to comply are severe .
