Home Buyers Survey in Morpeth

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Morpeth and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Morpeth property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any an extension, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap but it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Morpeth property's state of repair and it includes advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying a property in Morpeth but are worried about an infestation. What advice should we get?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. This danger should be taken seriously. It may not be obvious that a property is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked, for example, irritating cluster flies will hibernate in Autumn, but will return every year without treatment. As some vermin can be very stubborn, knowing the risks, and chance of success before you buy is essential. As awareness of less common problems grows, more surveys should identify these and advise on remedies.

Shocking Electrics

When I went to see the mid-century home I intend to buy I saw that there is an unsafe electrical system - will a Homebuyer Report in Morpeth write anything on the wiring and fusebox?

During a Morpeth Home Buyers Survey a qualified surveyor will typically make a note on the state of the electrics if it is suspected that the electrics are in a poor state of repair. This will include a by sight inspection of the accessible parts of the wiring and other areas e.g. checking the condition of any fixed electrical appliances, e.g. heaters. Inspecting any documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring handled by an electrician will be part of the survey.

Confirming the existence of any evidence of the most recent Periodic Inspection Report carried out by a suitably qualified electrician on the building should form part of the survey.

External walls

For the Morpeth HomeBuyer Report what does 'E4 - Main walls' refer to?

One example would be weak or absent brick wall foundations. Foundations and possible defects within the walls will not be investigated. The damp proof course is also covered under Section E4.

The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly, and avoid potentially unfamiliar technical language. Green, orange and red ratings are an indication of to what extent each defect requires attention. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific house or flat being surveyed will be indicated with a 'NI', or 'not inspected'. RICS have mandated a specific format for the HomeBuyer Report to aid the creation of a useful and comprehensive report for both surveyors and home buyers. As a result, some sections may not be relevant to every property, such as reporting on the condition of the roof of a ground floor flat.
