It is worth keeping in mind, however, that there are two types of survey available, the building survey and the homebuyers report

What is a building survey?

A building survey will provide a thorough report and appraisal of major and minor issues found with a property’s interior and exterior. A building survey is generally more expensive than the homebuyers report in Newcastle, as they are generally seen as more suitable for properties with large-scale extensions, unusual shapes or uncommon structural properties.

What is a homebuyers report?

A homebuyers report, on the other hand, is seen as more suitable for any property that is less than 150 years old and would appear to be in a reasonably good condition when inspected with the naked eye. A homebuyers report in Newcastle will give a greater idea of whether or not the property that is being reported on is worth the current asking price. It will also identify any significant and urgent issues that need attention in order to be resolved satisfactorily.

Why choose a homebuyers report?

The homebuyers report was developed and implemented by the RICS in order to ensure that buyers had access to enough of the right information and insight to let them make a fully informed purchasing decision.

Generally speaking, a homebuyers report covers the interior and exterior of a property and is split into further categories that concern floors, joinery, the roof, and walls. It also contains a condition rating system, which gives the buyer an easy point of reference and understanding of any issues, and an analysis of building-related risks such as damp, subsidence, and timber defects, all of which are detailed in the report.
