About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Killingworth

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 .

Landfill site near home

What should we be aware of when buying a home proximate to a refuse tip

Sites used for landfill take many forms including hazardous rubbish. No one ideally wants to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Concerns include heavy metals. Potential health problems like spina bifida have been associated with landfill sites .

Surveyors will note structural problems connected with the landfill. Your conveyancer will conduct conveyancing searches of the British Geological databases and North Tyneside Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .

Shocking Electrics

When I saw the period property I am meaning to acquire, the agent said that there is old wiring. Will a Killingworth survey go into detail on any faults with the electrics?

During a Building Survey in Killingworth your RICS surveyor will usually remark on the electrics if it appears that the electrics are in a hazardous state. Your surveyor is trained to focus on possible problems relating to things like the condition residual circuit breakers (RCD) and/or miniature circuit breakers (MCBs) or checking the state of a representative sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear.

Confirming the existence of any documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring conducted by an electrician will be part of the survey.

The IEE advise that a PIR should be carried out every 10 years (or every 5 if letting).
