Home Buyers Survey in Whitley Bay

HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Whitley Bay and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same.

If the Whitley Bay property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any major works, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it will offer a thorough analysis of the Whitley Bay property's condition and it includes advice on structural defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I went to see the thirties house I am hoping to purchase I think we saw that there are doubts as to then safety of the electrical system - does a the surveyor report on the electrics?

During a Homebuyer Report in Whitley Bay your surveyor will usually add detail on the state of the electrics if it is apparent that they are in an unsafe state.

This should include a visual inspection (without removing any fittings) of exposed sections of the wiring and other things, for example inspecting the nature of any electrical fittings in bathrooms.

Verifying the existence of any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical connections carried out by a suitably qualified electrician on the building should usually form part of the survey. A check for the documents from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring carried out by a suitably qualified electrician should usually form part of the survey in Whitley Bay .

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will the Whitley Bay Surveyor look for on a stucco rendered Victorian house in Whitley Bay.

Stucco is really just a kind of render. Usually it is applied to brick that sets to a smooth flat finish. The effect is highly grand in appearance and was often found on Victorian and Regency houses. Stucco is often prone to defect and Whitley Bay Homebuyer Reports sometimes detail any number of problems e.g. when movement of the underlying wall can lead to cracks

Another example of problems associated with stucco could result from the burden of heavy load such as cracking under stone slab roofs. Resolving Stucco problems can be difficult and costly as the skills are getting more difficult to find.
