HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Bexhill On Sea and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same survey.

If the Bexhill On Sea property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out alterations, you should you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it will give exhaustive analysis of the Bexhill On Sea property's condition along with an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What defects will my Chartered Surveyor look for on a stucco regency home in Bexhill On Sea that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is actually a specific type of solid render. Typically it is applied to brick hardens to an attractive smooth appearance that resembles stone. The effect is very beautiful and is found on Victorian houses. Specialists say that it is almost exactly the same as plaster to work with. Stucco is often problematic and Bexhill On Sea Building Surveys frequently report defects e.g. when stucco is exposed to on-going weathering and rain which gets perma-saturated and prone to frost damage

Another example of problems might result from the difficulty in testing for damp underneath. Re-covering problems may be surprisingly expensive as the skills are becoming harder to find.

Shocking Electrics

When we saw the mid-century home we expect to move into, it appeared that there are doubts as to then safety of the electrical system, will a surveyor advise on any faults with the electrics?

When preparing a Bexhill On Sea Home Buyers Survey the surveyor will remark on the overall electrical system if it is apparent that the electrics are in a less than satisfactory condition. This should include an overview inspection (without removing any fittings) of the unconcealed sections of the wiring, fusebox etc. on top of concerns such as ensuring supplementary bonding is in the usual place. Ascertaining the whereabouts of any evidence of the most recent Periodic Inspection Report carried out by an electrician should usually form part of the survey in Bexhill On Sea. Looking at any documentation from the most recent PIR handled by a suitably qualified electrician should be part of the Homebuyer report in Bexhill On Sea .

The IEE suggest that an electrical system check be conducted every ten years (or every 5 if letting out).

Timber damage by insect larvae

There may be pests at the Bexhill On Sea building we're buying, but we are not certain. What should we do?

Homes in Bexhill On Sea are generally free of pest problems, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. Evidence may not be easy to find. For example, carpet beetle larvae, or 'woolly bears' may be recognised by distinctive round bite marks along seams of clothing. Able to survive months without food, there may initially be no obvious evidence of their presence. Remedies to vermin can include insecticides and destruction of tainted materials. Rather than pulling out, it may be possible to agree a reduction in the purchase price to cover the cost of remedy.
