HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Gateshead and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is basically the same the same survey.

If the Gateshead property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, 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 are thinking about whether to make substantial modifications, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it does provide you with a thorough analysis of the Gateshead property's general condition in addition to an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

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

A Homebuyer Report in Gateshead will include an independent valuation and a Reinstatement Cost as an integral part of the report. To ascertain the property's value your chartered surveyor should use experience of property in Gateshead and other factors about the property e.g. accommodation The RICS surveyor will also consider materials used and use key assumptions e.g. no damaging building techniques have been employed.

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.

Additional local Gateshead area assumptions like services, are made in addition to any local environmental problems like local industry, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are concerned about an infestation. Will a residential surveyor look into this?

Houses are generally free of vermin, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months, the smell of ammonia in or behind cupboards may indicate mice, even if no droppings are found. Remedies to a serious infestation can include traps and removal or excision of affected timber. Your property surveyor may report on signs of infestation.

Shocking Electrics

When I visited the home I am hoping to purchase, it appeared that there were damaged electrical sockets - will a surveyor advise the wiring and electrical system?

During a Gateshead Home Buyers Survey the home surveyor should make a note on the state of the electrics if it looks like the electrics are in a poor condition. This will include a visual view of any uncovered areas of the wiring, fusebox etc. on top of areas e.g. reporting on the condition of the fitted electrical appliances like storage heaters or reporting on the condition of a representative sample of light fittings. Inspecting any evidence of the most recent Periodic Inspection Report handled by an electrician will usually be part of the survey in Gateshead.

The IEE suggest a PIR should be carried out every ten years (5 if renting out). To get local Gateshead help on all things electrical call D K Electricals Ltd , Unit1 Bensham Trading Est/Lobley Hill Rd, Gateshead, NE8 2XN .
