Which property survey should I choose for my intended home purchase ?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    The Homebuyer Report is the best choice when you are buying a home made of standard building materials i.e. brick & tile, in reasonable repair and constructed after 1900.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Woodside and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same survey.

If the Woodside property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make major works, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Woodside property's state of repair as well as advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a Building survey in Woodside include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of rebuilding permanent outbuildings) and what will it include?

A Homebuyer Report on a Woodside property will include a valuation and a "reinstatement cost". To properly appraise the value of the property the valuer will factor in local Woodside market factors and other things about the property e.g. accommodation The RICS surveyor will also consider construction methods and make certain other assumptions, for example no damaging building techniques have been employed. Surveyors will ignore things like furnishings.

Additional local Woodside area conjectures like connection to sewers, are made as well as any significant local environmental issues like local industry, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

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

House Prices

There is a property close to NE40 - Woodside for £118, 500. What things will a surveyor allow for when estimating house prices in Woodside ?

There is a vast array of things that can affect property values for example the total square meterage of the home or the height of ceilings. You can try to consider flat values registered at the Land Registry for similar properties. The mean flat price registered at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £115, 000, which is £3, 500 less than the amount the vendor is asking for. The house/flat average was £113, 331. 9, Millennium Court, Greenside, Ryton, Gateshead, Tyne And Wear, NE40 4HZ a new build leasehold apartment recently sold for £115, 000 .

The only way for home buyers to get an accurate property valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as standard. A RICS surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme. The scheme is intended to raise consumer confidence and improves standards.

A professional surveyor will visit the home in addition to allowing for the variety of area issues affecting the value of property.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a Woodside home built in the mid 50s, but it has clay foundations. Will the Woodside Property Survey consider this?

The content of soil around the foundations of a Woodside home will have an impact. Specific issues include soil movement. In Woodside's relatively mild climate, the variations in volume which clay soil experiences will be barely noticeable, but extended dry or wet spells may well impact the soil's stability and affecting the property itself. For example, small cracks in the living room floor may be benign, or a clue prompting a more thorough investigation. During the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the home will be considered.
