HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Berwick Upon Tweed and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Berwick Upon Tweed property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any significant alterations, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, but it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Berwick Upon Tweed property's general condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

House Prices

We are hoping to be buying a property in TD15. The asking price is £83, 525. What factors will Berwick Upon Tweed surveyor take into account when estimating house prices in Berwick Upon Tweed during a professional valuation ?

There is a vast array of things that might affect property values e.g. the existence of double glazing or whether the home is landlocked. It is useful to put side by side flat prices recorded in the same area for similar flats. The mean flat price registered at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £66, 625, which is £16, 900 less than the asking price. The average factoring in houses and flats was £147, 727. 4D, Church Road, Tweedmouth, Berwick-Upon-Tweed, Northumberland, Northumberland, TD15 2AJ was purchased for £37, 500 .

An impartial way for you to get a formal home valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report as an inclusive part. Your local surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (established register of valuers).

A professional RICS surveyor should attend home in addition to allowing for the multiple items that can affect property prices.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I've put in an offer in Berwick Upon Tweed. What suggestions can a surveyor in Berwick Upon Tweed make? Does the age of the property matter?

Brick-walled Berwick Upon Tweed properties can suffer from numerous defects, such as cracks. The surveyor can investigate these as part of their report, with advice on the consequences were they to go untreated. A serious concern is frost damage, which over time will cause bricks and mortar to disintegrate entirely. Contact several local builders for quotes, including C & C Brickwork of 8 Dukes Rd, Walton-On-Thames, KT12 4LS on 01932 880238.

Other aspects of a property which may feature decorative include the use of 'clicker' or misfired brick.

Damaged Render

What defects will my RICS Surveyor consider on a spar dash rendered (stucco) Victorian house in Berwick Upon Tweed which we wish to buy.

Stucco (aka pargetting) is actually just a smooth and flat render. Commonly stucco render is layered over brick (sometimes also ceilings) hardens to form a smooth surface that is sometimes scored to resemble stone. The effect is highly aesthetic and is found on Victorian and Georgian houses. Stucco is often prone to defect and Surveyors in Berwick Upon Tweed commonly focus on defects for example, when it is faced with on-going weathering which gets saturated prone to damage from frost.

Another example of problems could result from the supporting significant loads above such as cracking under supports carrying concrete roof tiles that have absorbed water. Resolving problems can be costly as the skills are getting more difficult to find.
