Home Buyers Survey in Shiremoor

HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Shiremoor and which is cheaper?

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

If the Shiremoor property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out an extension on the Shiremoor property, you should you choose a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Shiremoor property's condition as well as more detailed advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should I be worried about when buying a home in the region a landfill site

Sites used for landfill take many forms e.g. industrial refuse disposal. Of course nobody ideally wants to live near one (80% of people live under 2km away from one). Risks include complex organic chemicals. Health concerns like cancer have been linked to landfill sites .

Surveyors will examine structural issues connected with the site. Your conveyancing solicitor will commission environmental searches of the British Geological database as well as North Tyneside Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I've put in an offer in Shiremoor. What recommendations will a Shiremoor surveyor make? Does brick decay faster in Shiremoor weather?

Brick-constructed buildings feature several advantages. However, they can also suffer from both minor and serious issues, including frost damage and defective mortar. The Shiremoor surveyor would usually include these along with recommendations.

A defect often found is diagonal cracking caused by ground movement. Brickwork C G may be able to give a quote for any maintenance work. Contact them at 01495 249892 or Laburnum Ter, Abercarn, Newport, NP11 5JQ.

As an example, English garden wall bond or common bond may be used in the construction of buildings in Shiremoor. Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.

Window frame

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in Shiremoor what does a Condition Rating 1 mean for 'E5 - Windows' ?

An example of this is missing drip caps on windows. Where practicable, all windows are to be opened and closed, but not forced open, and vulnerable areas closely examined. The surveyor should make notes and advise the client whether it is possible to operate the window transoms/openings satisfactorily. The home buyer report is intended to be easy to read and understand. As buyers in Shiremoor are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. A 'traffic light' system of colour coding is used to confirm the seriousness of any issues included in the survey. Aspects of the property in good or excellent condition are marked as 'green' with a condition rating of 1, but regular upkeep may still be required.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a Building survey in Shiremoor include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for site clearance) and how is it calculated?

The Homebuyer Report contains a surveyor valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate. To work out the valuation your RICS valuer should use local Shiremoor market factors and other things relating to the property for instance: general condition The valuer will also consider materials used and will use key assumptions e.g. the property is connected to mains services such as gas. Surveyors disregard certain things like furnishings.

Additional local area conjectures, for example services, are made in addition to Shiremoor environmental concerns like railways, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.
