Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A Home Buyers Survey is completed by a qualified RICS surveyor and delivers a visual inspection of the property in Consett and the surrounding garden. The aim of the survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is to identify potential risks or defects that you may not know are there such as cracks or damage to the structure of the property, subsidence, damp and infestations.

NB If you're a first time buyer, you might wish to click on What is a House Survey to find out more, including what happens during the inspection.

Should any issues be flagged up in the Home Buyers Survey, our surveyor will tell you what you need to do to get more in-depth advice on the extent and seriousness of the issue and what needs to be done to remedy it. 

If you are worried about a crack or cracks or indeed any other defects that you think your property in Consett has, we strongly recommend you get a Home Buyers Survey as the cost of remedying the problem might snowball into many thousands of pounds further down the line.

As an example of the costs, underpinning a property due to subsidence can be upwards of £10,000.

My property is a period flat, do I need a building survey?

This is a commonly asked question and it depends on the property to be inspected.

For a homebuyers report the surveyor is inspecting the property itself and common parts.

If the property is a first floor flat with a garden flat below and a top floor flat above, there really is very little merit in instructing a full building survey as the surveyor has limits to what he can comment on.

If however the property to be purchased is the garden flat, then the surveyor is likely to have access to the front and rear of the property so is able to complete a more thorough inspection and therefore able to provide a more detailed report. So a building survey would be possible.

Always provide the postcode so that you can get guidance on what survey best suit your property.
