HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Shotley Bridge and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Shotley Bridge property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any major works on the property, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Shotley Bridge property's state of repair along with an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

I don't get the argument to order the full structural survey when looking into a substantially modified detached townhouse near Shotley Bridge rather than a HomeBuyer Report?

Albeit often and incorrectly described as Structural Surveys by house buyers the correct term for this type of survey is now Building Surveys. The HomeBuyer Report will suffice if investigating a mid century or later Shotley Bridge house of typical building materials. A Building Survey is certainly the most relevant choice for the property mentioned. Subsequent to an exhaustive inspection of the inside and outside of the main building, a formal written report will be supplied to the prospective buyer summarising comprehensive and crucial professional advice concerning the condition of the home.

There are one or two limitations with any survey because a chartered surveyor will not be able to force or open up the fabric of the Shotley Bridge house for example lifting up floor coverings.

Conservation area

Will there be any considerations we would be advised to on guard for when buying a converted house in Shotley Bridge near a conservation area?

There are over 9, 000 official conservation areas in the UK that are designated and monitored by local authorities.

A Building Surveyors are required by RICS to have relevant knowledge of local factors and the effect may have with the property and its value. Property Prices is, more often than not, greater owing to them being in their original state. However many conservation areas have been neglected and are in a poor state e.g. the unsightly effect of billboard advertising

Property surveyors are expected tell you if the property could be in a conservation area and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Homebuyer Report will advise additional enquiries are carried out by your legal adviser. Unauthorised changes to the building will also be noted in the survey, however these should be investigated by your conveyancer.

Shocking Electrics

When I visited the home I am intending to move into it appeared that there was no RCD on the fuse board ; will a surveyor go into detail on the electrical system?

When carrying out a Home Survey in Shotley Bridge a RICS surveyor will make a note on the overall electrical system if it is suspected that they are in an unsafe condition. He or she will also provide detail on potential areas for concern such as verifying the condition of any fitted appliances like water heaters. Reporting on any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical installations carried out by a suitably qualified electrician should form part of the survey in Shotley Bridge.
