HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Bexhill and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Bexhill property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Bexhill property's condition in addition to an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What sort of thing will the Chartered Surveyor consider on a stucco Victorian home in Bexhill that I intend to purchase.

Stucco is really just a form of render. Usually stucco render is layered over brick to form a smooth and even finish. Stucco render is highly appealing and is found on Victorian and Regency homes. It is similar to plaster. It may contain lime in it as well as animal fibres to help stop cracks. Stucco is often prone to defect and Bexhill Homebuyer Reports can reveal any number of problems for instance trapped moisture culminating in damp problems needing repair.

Another example of problems associated with stucco may include when the application has been taken down to ground level and short circuits the Damp Proof Course (DPC). Re-covering Stucco problems can be dear as craftsmen are becoming rarer.

Chimney stacks

On a Bexhill HomeBuyer Report, what might a an red light rating mean for chimney stacks?

The home buyer report is intended to be easy to read and understand, unlike less prescriptive surveys. These may offer more complex detail, but they are also less useful for home purchasers deciding whether or not to purchase a property. Your property surveyor will mark each aspect of the property included in Section E with either a green, orange or red rating, to indicate the severity of defects uncovered during the survey. Red, or condition rating three, indicates particularly concerning issues. Defects marked in red may also need further inspection by an expert. They are inspected by eye from ground level as necessary. A report on a lower ground flat, for instance, may not require this. Too many fireplaces or appliances connected to one flue is an example.

Conservation area

Will there be any problems we should on guard for when planning to buy a property in Bexhill inside a conservation area ?

There are many thousands of conservation areas in the UK which are designated by the local council.

A Building Surveyors are required by RICS to have relevant knowledge of relevant local area issues and the relation may have on the building and its value. The price of property tends to be higher because of the areas being preserved. However many conservation areas have fallen into poor condition e.g. ugly satellite dishes

Surveyors are expected tell you if the home is or might be in a conservation area and Section I of the Homebuyer Report will advise the proper questions are carried out by your conveyancer. Unauthorised extensions that do not have Local Authority approval will also be commented on, however these should be concern for your conveyancer. Fynmores are based in 10-12 Parkhurst Road, Rother, East Sussex, TN40 1DF might be happy to advise. Tel: 01424 732333
