HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Ponteland and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same survey.

If the Ponteland property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it will give you comprehensive details of the Ponteland property's condition along with advice on defects and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Which Ponteland Surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for reconstructing a boundary wall) and what does it include?

A Homebuyer Report on a Ponteland property will include a (registered valuer) surveyor valuation in addition to a "reinstatement cost" included in the cost of the survey. In order to determine the correct valuation your surveyor will use in depth understanding of the Ponteland market as well as other factors relating to the property e.g. style of architecture Your Ponteland surveyor will also consider style of architecture and draw upon other assumptions e.g. the property isn't on a land fill site.

A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Additional local Ponteland area conjectures, for example water and drainage connectivity, are made in addition to any environmental issues like local Ponteland industrial considerations, also being considered.

Landfill site near home

What should we be worried about when buying a property close to a rubbish tip

Landfill Sites take many forms e.g. inert waste material. No one would want to live near one (80% of people live within 1.5m of one!). Worries might include methane gas generation. Health problems for example congenital birth defects have been linked to landfill sites .

Ponteland RICS surveyors will examine structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your conveyancing solicitor will commission environmental searches of the British Geological databases in addition to Northumberland Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .

Gas flame

Does a surveyor look into the condition or the safety of the gas flues?

Your RICS surveyor will visually examine the easily accessible parts of the gas system. The survey will include the location of the meter for example, as well as gas connected gas fittings in the home e.g. chimney breasts or flues. Any fittings will not be taken off. The system will not be tested in any way. Most people are aware that gas is potentially hazardous, should there be any worries relating to gas installations, contact a gas safe engineer.
