Looking for a Property Survey ? Which one should you choose?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Seaham

    A Homebuyer Report is the right choice when you are purchasing a property made of conventional materials i.e. brick and tile, in reasonable repair and constructed after 1900.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Seaham

    A RICS Building Survey (once known as a Full Structural Survey in Seaham) is also carried out by a RICS surveyor but is more exhaustive. Choose this when buying a non standard property such as box frame construction or older properties.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Seaham

    This is a professional valuation of the property. This report is chosen by cash purchasers or someone needing a formal valuation e.g. for probate.

HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Seaham and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same.

If the Seaham property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any major works on the property, you should you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it does give an in-depth analysis of the Seaham property's state of repair in addition to an opinion on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I visited a property I am interested to acquire, the agent said that there could be corrosion of the wiring; will the surveyor go into detail on electrical system condition?

When performing a Home Survey in Seaham a surveyor should report on the electrical system if it is obvious that the electrics are in a poor state of repair. The RICS surveyor is trained to give detail on concerns such as whether there is an off-peak /on-peak mains supply.

Verifying the existence of any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical connections handled

by an electrician will usually be part of the Homebuyer report in Seaham. Ascertaining the whereabouts of any documents from any recent PIR handled by a suitably qualified electrician on the property will form part of the survey.

Gas flame

Does a chartered surveyor examine the state of repair of the gas appliances?

Your qualified surveyor will locate and visually check any accessible parts of the system. The survey will include the condition of the meter as part of the Seaham survey, as well as gas affiliated fixtures, for instance the possibility of asbestos. The Seaham RICS surveyor won't remove any fittings and he or she won't conduct any tests whatsoever on the functionality of the gas system. You should never attempt to fix gas fittings your self as it is potentially deadly, should there be any worries about gas fittings, contact a gas safe engineer.

The regulations ensure that landlords have to carry out appliance and installation inspections annually and punishments for failure to comply include heavy fines or imprisonment .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is it recommended that we check gutters? Where there is damage, what should we do?

The impact of climate change is widely reported, yet the effect which damp weather has on houses is rarely paid due attention. As an example, mildew or damp in the roof strongly suggest that the rainwater goods are damaged, but you may wish to ask your surveyor for more detail. Fortunately, this is usually easy to repair, if identified early. If disregarded, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.
