Which Home Buyers Survey should you select?

    A Homebuyer Report is the right choice when planning to purchase a property built from conventional building materials i.e. tile & brick, not dilapidated and constructed after 1900.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Killingworth

    A RICS Building Survey (which used to be called a Full Structural Survey in Killingworth) is also carried out by a MRICS or FRICS qualified surveyor but is more exhaustive. Choose this when buying a non standard property such as wood frame properties.

    This is a professional surveyor valuation of the property. This is typically chosen by mortgage free buyers or someone requiring a formal valuation e.g. for probate.

HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Killingworth and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Killingworth property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any significant alterations, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Killingworth property's general condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Gas flame

Will a Killingworth surveyor check out the condition of the gas heaters?

The chartered surveyor will locate and visually inspect the easily accessible parts of the system. This will include gas heaters (also LPG/oil/electric) as part of the survey, as well as gas affiliated fixtures, for instance chimney breasts or flues. Your Killingworth qualified RICS surveyor won't remove any external fittings nor will they carry out any tests on the serviceability of the system. Most people are aware that gas is potentially dangerous, if you have any concerns about gas fittings, call a gas safe engineer.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is rain an issue in Killingworth? We're concerned about replacement costs.

Both in Killingworth, and throughout the county, rain is so common that buyers rarely think about it. Unfortunately wet weather and the effect it can have on your home are not given more thought. As an example, a waterlogged garden suggest that the rainwater goods are blocked, but you may wish to ask your surveyor for more detail. Whether buying in Killingworth or elsewhere, difficult rainwater goods does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to fix, unless they are untreated or poorly maintained. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.

Damage resulting from flooding

We are intending to purchase a ground floor flat in Killingworth, does the residential surveyor investigate indications of flooding damage, or whether flooding has affected other houses on the street?

The lives of many property owners in Killingworth and across the UK have suffered as a result of floods, and home purchasers and owners are understandably concerned. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable. The survey report may also, where appropriate, advise on needed maintenance.Less expensive preventative measures include door guards. Also included on Environment Agency's flood alert are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.
