Home Buyers Survey in Wallsend

HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Wallsend and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Wallsend property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any substantial modifications, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it will give exhaustive analysis of the Wallsend property's state of repair as well as more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should I be worried about when purchasing a flat next to a landfill site

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes e.g. inert refuse disposal. Of course nobody would want to live near one (most people do live near one). Risks include tars and other hazardous materials. Health concerns like downs syndrome have been associated to landfill sites .

Surveyors will examine structural issues connected with the landfill. Your lawyer will conduct conveyancing searches of the Environmental Agency databases and South Tyneside Local Authority and address any concerns you may have .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Will my survey give a property valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for rebuilding a retaining wall) and what does it include?

The Homebuyer Report contains a (registered valuer) surveyor valuation and also a Reinstatement Cost. To estimate the property's value the valuer will relate to area knowledge and other things relating to the property for instance: style of architecture. Surveyors also examine certain fixtures and fittings and draw upon key assumptions, for example the property is connected to mains services such as water. 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. The surveyor relies on standard assumptions that there are no major legal issues for example proper access over pathways. These will be investigated by your legal representative.

Further area assumptions like the access roads not being in private control, are made as well as any significant local environmental issues like flood plains, which will also be factored in.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We have made an offer for a structure with a converted attic in Wallsend. What advice would the RICS surveyor give in their report?

Questions like this are often asked of surveyors in Wallsend by buyers who are aware that property can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer difficulties with the roof, for example, mould. Any part of the roof or loft, such as ceiling joists, ought to be checked. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like literally being flat. An incline of at least '1 to 80' is recommended.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a Wallsend roofing contractor for the job itself.
