Home Buyers Survey in Tyne And Wear

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Tyne And Wear and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is essentially the same survey.

If the Tyne And Wear property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any works or an extension, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, but it will give you comprehensive details of the Tyne And Wear property's state of repair as well as including more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

If purchasing a converted regency semi detached home, is it best to get a full structural survey?

The Full Structural Survey is now known as the Building Survey. A HomeBuyer Report goes into enough detail for a 60 year old or less unmodified Tyne And Wear house of standard building materials i.e. brick walls and tiled roof. A Building Survey is definitely the proper choice for the property described. Once an exhaustive inspection of any accessible parts, a written report is forwarded to the buyer running through any crucial information in relation to the construction and uses of the house. There will be certain no go areas with a Building Survey insofar as a surveyor will not be able to (unless safe to do so) force or open up the fabric of the Tyne And Wear house e.g. undoing electrical fittings. This page for more detail on what is and is not included.

Gas flame

Will the chartered surveyor report on the condition of the gas appliances?

A chartered surveyor will locate and visually check out any easily accessible parts of the gas system. This will include gas heaters (also LPG/oil/electric) as part of the Tyne And Wear survey, in addition to gas associated appliances/installations such as chimney breasts. External fittings however, won't be undone. The gas system won't be tested. Gas can be dangerous, should there be any worries about gas fittings, call a gas engineer.

The regulations stipulate that all landlords are obligated to complete appliance and installation inspections yearly. Non compliance penalties are criminal .

Chimney stacks

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in Tyne And Wear what could a Condition rating 3 mean for 'E1 - Chimney stacks' ?

For a Tyne And Wear property, one example could be a chimney extender which is rusted or stuck. Chimney stacks are inspected by eye with binoculars as required.

Severe defects impacting the Tyne And Wear house or flat are indicated with a 'red' condition rating of 3. They can include defects which compromise the structural integrity of a Tyne And Wear property. RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property, unlike some more complex survey reports. Your property surveyor will mark each aspect of the property included in Section E with either a green, orange or red rating, to indicate to what extent any problems or notable points may negatively impact the property.

Damaged Render

What will your RICS Surveyor look for on a stucco rendered semi detached home in Tyne And Wear that I wish to buy.

Stucco is just a kind of smooth solid render. Usually stucco is applied to red brick hardens to form an attractive smooth appearance that resembles stone. It is very aesthetic and is often found on Regency houses. It may have lime in it as well as animal fibres to stop cracks. Stucco is often prone to defect and Tyne And Wear Home Buyers Suveys commonly report issues for instance trapped water culminating in the surface breaking.

Another example of problems could be when the application has been taken down to ground level and short circuits the Damp Proof Course. Re-coating Stucco problems can be surprisingly expensive as the skills are getting more difficult to find.
