HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Bognor Regis and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Bognor Regis property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, you should you commission a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Bognor Regis property's state of repair as well as including an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What problems will the Bognor Regis Surveyor take into account on a stucco regency house in Bognor Regis.

Stucco is actually just a smooth and flat render. Usually stucco render is applied to brick hardens to an attractive smooth appearance that resembles stone. The finish is highly attractive and is was often applied to Victorian buildings. It is very like plaster and mortar in its nature. It used to contain lime (which makes it set harder) in it as well as animal fibres to stop cracks. it can be prone to defect and Bognor Regis Building Surveys frequently reveal defects which might include trapped moisture culminating in problems with damp.

Another example of problems might include when the stucco is taken down to ground level and short circuits the DPC. Remedying problems may be surprisingly expensive as the skills are becoming rarer.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Do all Bognor Regis surveys include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of rebuilding a garage) and how is it worked out

Bognor Regis Homebuyer Reports an independent valuation as well as a reinstatement cost estimate included in the cost of the survey. To fully consider the market value the surveyor will take into account experience of property in Bognor Regis and other things relating to the property for instance: size. The RICS surveyor will also consider construction type and use other assumptions e.g. the property is connected to mains services such as water.

A Building Survey won't include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee. Please call for information. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Additional local area assumptions like connection to sewers, are made as well as any significant Bognor Regis environmental problems like flood plains, also being considered.

Shocking Electrics

When we visited the mid-century home we are intending to lease it appeared that there is an old fuse board ; does Bognor Regis Homebuyer Report go into detail on the general state of the electrical system?

When conducting a Bognor Regis Homebuyer Report a RICS surveyor will typically make a note on the electrics if it appears that they are in a less than satisfactory condition. This should include a general inspection of any uncovered sections of the wiring on top of issues like verifying the category of any electrical fittings in shower rooms. Verifying the location of the evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical wiring carried out by a suitably qualified electrician will be part of the Homebuyer report in Bognor Regis. Looking at any documentation from any recent PIR handled by an electrician on the property should form part of the survey.
