Property Surveys in Newcastle with AJ Walton

Chartered Building Surveyor in Newcastle upon Tyne

People sometimes mixed up and think that a valuation report carried out by a lender’s surveyor is a survey. But remember, many mortgage valuations are made up of a quick report and inspection that will only, best, give you some very general advice. It sometimes surprises us here at AJ Walton – a Newcastle Chartered Surveyor – that people put all of their trust into an extremely limited report when buying a property is such a big decision.

So, if you’re about to buy a property, there are two popular tomes of property surveys in Newcastle that you should consider – a RICS Full Building Survey or a RICS Homebuyer Report.

RICS Homebuyer Report in Newcastle
Created by the RICS and carried about by fully qualified professionals like AJ Walton – this affordable and cost effective report dramatically reduces the risk of whether people should carry out a purchase or not. It will give you enough expert information to make an informed and reasoned decision.

What does the report cover?
It will cover the building both outside and inside and includes things like checking walls, floors, joinery, and walls. Each of these core areas is given a super simple rating…
Green (Condition 1): This is good news! A green rating means if the property is maintained properly no repairs are needed at the current time.

Amber (Condition 2): This means there are defects that need attention but they aren’t deemed to be urgent or serious.

Red (Condition 3): Bad news! There are defects present on the property that needs to be investigated urgently, replaced or repaired.
