Home Buyers Survey in Whickham

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Whickham and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Whickham property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any major works, you should you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Whickham property's condition and it includes advice on structural defects , repairs and maintenance options .

I intend to buy a property in NE16. It is on the market for £85, 717. What considerations will a Whickham RICS chartered surveyor take into account on a valuation ?

There are many factors that might affect the price of property from anti social neighbours to the number of bedrooms in the property. You can try to set against prices recorded in Whickham for similar properties. The mean flat price recorded at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £85, 417, which is £300 less than the price you are intending to pay. The average factoring in houses and flats was £176, 035. 4, Wansford Way, Whickham, Newcastle Upon Tyne, Gateshead, Tyne And Wear, NE16 5SP a leasehold maisonette sold for £85, 000 .

In order to get an impartial home valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation as a core component. A RICS surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (mandatory since 30 April 2011).

A professional qualified surveyor will always attend the building in addition to allowing for the wealth of location related influences that might affect property prices.
