Building survey reports North East

Home Buyer & Building Surveys

When buying a new property, it can be very difficult to know exactly how much work there is to do and the investment involved. Encompass Surveyors can help you by providing a home buyer survey or report, a home survey, and other building surveys. We’re based in the North East, so get in touch now!

Building Surveys

This is the most comprehensive report that we offer. We recommend this if the property is large, old, in a conservation area, unique, or in need of repair or renovation. If you have any specific concerns, please let us know and we can concentrate on these areas.

The cost of these surveys varies, as does the size and complexity of properties they cover. However, they generally range from £575 to £950.

Homebuyer Surveys

This survey will advise you on any maintenance and repair issues, as well as giving a general overview of the condition and suitability of the property. We offer this survey for properties that are old or of traditional construction, but of an age where maintenance issues are starting to arise.

Benefits of a Homebuyer Survey

Homebuyer surveys can save you a lot of money by avoiding unexpected issues, repair costs, and the upheaval that the work will cause. A homebuyer survey will always find problems, including issues with electrical installation, roofs, heating systems, and damp issues.

Types of Homebuyer Reports

A RICS Condition Report is a basic condition report to identify risks, legal issues, and work that is urgent. It is sufficient if the property is a new-build or a home in very good condition but will not include advice.

A RICS Homebuyer Report is more comprehensive and will highlight structural problems, including damp and subsidence. It can be very useful in negotiating the price of the property.

A RICS Building Survey is especially needed on older properties and includes the inspections described above and goes into detail. The in-depth building survey report highlights the issues and provides advice on defects, repairs, and maintenance.
