About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Longbenton

HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Longbenton and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Longbenton property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any alterations, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, but it will give you comprehensive details of the Longbenton property's general condition and it includes advice on defects and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Which Longbenton Surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for reconstructing a retaining wall)

A Homebuyer Report on a Longbenton property will contain an independent valuation as well as a rebuilding cost as part of the report. To fully consider the correct valuation the surveyor will take into account awareness of the Longbenton property market and other factors about the property e.g. state of repair Surveyors also evaluate style of architecture and use key assumptions like the property isn't on a land fill site.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. It will be assumed that there are no compromising legal problems like no laws are broken by use of property. These will be investigated by your conveyancing solicitor.

Further Longbenton assumptions, such as use of parking or the property being insurable, are made in addition to any local environmental problems like local Longbenton industrial considerations, which will also be factored in.

Stone block wall damage

Will a property with stone walls cause issues? What should we look in to?

Purchasers in Longbenton should be aware that stone walls can be much weaker than they appear. Defects affecting stone-built homes in Longbenton can vary, cracks being relatively common. Stone quarried in the area is common to local homes in Longbenton, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county. Buyers should consider that stone can have a great effect on the long-term viability of a property or extension, resulting in higher repair costs in future. For example, limestone can quickly deteriorate. Maintenance tips include repointing mortar with a suitable material.
