Home Buyers Survey in Bamburgh

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Bamburgh and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Bamburgh property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make major works, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it does provide you with a thorough analysis of the Bamburgh property's general condition and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Should I get a separate valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as reconstructing a boundary wall) and how is it calculated?

A Homebuyer Report in Bamburgh will include a property valuation and also a reinstatement cost as standard. In order to determine an accurate value estimate your RICS valuer should use knowledge of Bamburgh and other considerations about the property e.g. state of repair Your Bamburgh surveyor will also consider style of architecture and will use other assumptions e.g. no damaging building techniques have been employed.

A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee ; call for more info. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The surveyor also assumes that there aren't any costly legal problems such as your potential purchase is sold with vacant possession. Advice should be sought from your conveyancer.

Additional local Bamburgh area assumptions like the access roads not being in private control, are made in addition to any Bamburgh environmental concerns like local industry, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a Bamburgh surveyor check for flood damage?

A wide variety of factors can cause flooding, from inadequate drainage to tidal activity. Those planning to buy in affected areas should weigh up their exposure. The Environment Agency maintain a flood risk alert service, with regular updated risk assessments, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures.

Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. correctly installed window and door frames. The RICS surveyor may ask the agent if the residence has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.

Landfill site near home

What should I be fearful of if buying a maisonette near to a refuse tip

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes for example: industrial waste material disposal. Understandably, no one wants to live near one (4/5 people live within 1.5m of one!). Worries include tars and other hazardous materials. Potential health concerns for example downs syndrome have been associated to landfill sites .

Bamburgh RICS surveyors will note structural problems resulting from the landfill. Your solicitor will conduct environmental searches of the British Geological database as well as Northumberland Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .
