About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Billingham

HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Billingham and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same survey.

If the Billingham property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any major works, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it will offer comprehensive details of the Billingham property's state of repair in addition to more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does a RICS chartered surveyor check the serviceability of the gas appliances?

A chartered surveyor will locate and visually examine any easily accessible parts of the gas system. This will include whether the mains is connected as part of the Billingham survey, as well as gas affiliated appliances e.g. ventilation of flue (if blocked). Your Billingham qualified surveyor won't remove the fittings and will not do any tests whatsoever on the gas system. Most people are aware that gas is potentially hazardous and if there are any worries about gas, call a gas engineer immediately.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Billingham, and think we saw signs of bugs in the basement. How do we investigate further?

Billingham home buyers should be aware that there is no legal obligation for a seller to disclose a vermin problem. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. An affected building may not always be easy to identify. As an example, cluster, or swarming flies, are often found in lofts and can be a serious, seasonal annoyance if not treated. Treatment for vermin may include use of insecticides or destruction of tainted materials.

Other external areas of the property

In a Billingham HomeBuyer Report what impact can a Condition rating 3 have on 'E9 - Other' ?

For a Billingham property, one example could be leaning, settled and heaved columns forming the structure of a conservatory or porch. Miscellaneous external elements are including here that do not fit elsewhere in Section E.

The format of the RICS HomeBuyer Report is clear and easy to read, unlike less prescriptive surveys. These may offer more complex detail, but they are also less useful for buyers deciding whether or not to purchase a Billingham home. Colour coded ratings are used to communicate the severity of defects uncovered during the survey. A condition rating of three is used to emphasise the most crucial repairs. Defects marked in red may also need further inspection by an expert, where asbestos is suspected to have been used in the Billingham home's construction. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific home being surveyed will be indicated with a 'NI', or 'not inspected'. The HomeBuyer Report has a standard format, which the surveyor will complete according to the nuances of the particular home, omitting sections as necessary.
