HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Battle and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Battle property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Battle property's state of repair as well as including information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about vermin in the home we plan to buy. Is a Property Survey advisable?

Any questions about pests affecting a Battle property may not be asked by the lawyer. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. An affected property may not always be easy to identify. As an example, cockroaches are nocturnal, and challenging to eradicate. Species common to the UK, such as the German Cockroach, are small, and breed rapidly in moist conditions. This makes them both hard to spot, and to treat successfully. Treatment for pest problems may include removal or excision of affected timber. Your home surveyor may report on signs of infestation.

Conservation area

Are there any concerns I would be advised to consider when intending to buy a period property in Battle in the vicinity of a conservation area?

There are nearly 10, 000 official conservation areas throughout the country, responsibility for which lies with the local council.

A Building Surveyors need to possess sufficient knowledge of relevant local area factors and any effect they have with the home. Values is, more often than not, greater as a result of them retaining their original character. However many conservation areas have been neglected and are in a poor state for example - unauthorised alterations to the fronts, roofs and chimneys of buildings

Surveyors will note if the planned purchase could be is so classified and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Battle Homebuyer Report will advise suitable questions are conducted by the solicitor or conveyancer. Unsympathetic developments to the property may be noted, however these should be investigated by your lawyer.

This means house prices registered at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £332, 813, which is £27, 500 more than the asking price (£304, 566 was the blended house/flat average). 11, St Marys Villas, Battle, Rother, East Sussex, TN33 0BY a detached home sold for £525, 000 .
