HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Angmering and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is basically the same the same survey.

If the Angmering property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any an extension, you should you commission a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it does give comprehensive details of the Angmering property's state of repair as well as advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

What is the justification for having the full structural survey when investing in a neglected terraced house near Angmering as an alternative to a HomeBuyer Report?

Often still called a Structural Survey by many home buyers, this survey is no longer available has actually been given a new name by RICS and the correct name is now the Building Survey. This is now the right survey to choose when buying an unusual home e.g. an older house in Angmering. The report will typically give full and critical advice about the buildings construction materials on top of any needs for future maintenance after a thorough visual inspection of the inside and outside of the main building.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The property we plan to buy is built on clay soil. Can we expect the HomeBuyer Report to mention this?

Subsidence is often the result of unseen, subterranean causes, including clay soil. Subsidence is one obvious concern, but there are others, including severe changes in the water table level. The composition of clay soil varies greatly, with some areas being more susceptible to clay soil subsidence than others, but the effects can be very similar. For example, minor wall cracks in the kitchen may be benign, or a clue prompting a more thorough investigation. During the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the home will be considered. Isolated patches of very wet soil can just as easily warp foundations, so care must be taken to ensure the overall moisture level of the clay soil around the foundations stays consistent.

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about bugs in the Angmering house we plan to buy - What should we do?

Any questions about pests affecting a Angmering property may not be asked by the lawyer. Regrettably, pests can be costly to fix and put your health in danger. It may not be obvious that a property is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked, for example, house longhorn beetles can be identified by evidence of small tunnels through beams and floorboards, burrowed by the larvae. Remedies can take time, so if you opt to proceed with the purchase, check with a specialist how long treatment will take.RICS guidelines on the issue of pests are something of a 'grey-area', so specific fears should be mentioned to your property surveyor.
