HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Whitley Bay and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same.

If the Whitley Bay property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any major works, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it will offer a thorough analysis of the Whitley Bay property's condition and it includes advice on structural defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

My wife spotted signs of insects in the kitchen. Should we get a chartered surveyor?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. It may not be obvious that a property is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked, for example, the smell of ammonia in or behind cupboards may indicate mice, even if no droppings are found. Remedies can be disruptive to residents, and may require you to move out during

the work in extreme cases. As awareness of less common problems grows, more surveys should identify these and advise on remedies.

Building Surveys on houses

What are the benefits for doing the full structural survey instead of a HomeBuyer Report?

Structural Surveys don't actually exist now Building Survey has now superseded it. A HomeBuyer Report has enough detail for a non period unmodified Whitley Bay house assembled from conventional construction materials and methods i.e. brick/tile. RICS would recommend that you have a Building Survey in relation to the house you are planning to buy. There are several limitations are integral with the survey as a qualified RICS surveyor will not be able to force or open up the structure of the house nor can they comment on efficiency of gas installations.

Gas flame

Will a qualified RICS surveyor advise on the safety of the gas supply?

A qualified surveyor will locate and visually inspect the accessible parts of the gas system. A surveyor will want to inspect the gas pipe route at the property, in addition to gas connected appliances or installations like fireplaces. If there are any gas fittings they won't actually be dislodged. The system won't be tested at all. Needless to say, gas is potentially deadly, if you have any concerns relating to gas installations, contact a gas safe engineer.

The 1998 Gas Safety Regulations stipulate that all landlords have to complete appliance and installation inspections annually and punishments for failure to comply include heavy fines or imprisonment .
