Which Building Survey should you choose?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Bognor Regis

    The RICS Homebuyer Report should be selected if buying a home constructed from standard materials such as tile & brick, in reasonable order and less than 100 years old.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Bognor Regis

    A Building Survey (previously called a Full Structural Survey in Bognor Regis) will also be carried out by a MRICS or FRICS surveyor but is more exhaustive. Opt for this when buying a non standard property such as stone homes.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Bognor Regis

    This is a professional valuation . This report is typically chosen by cash purchasers or anyone needing a formal valuation e.g. a dispute.

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 .

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact may heavy rain have on our new building? Will the chartered surveyor report on this? Could damaged gutters lower the property value?

As a frequent surveyor of property in the area, I find it strange that the effect which heavy rain has on buildings is usually overlooked. If you have visited the house in dry weather, defects may not have been obvious. Signs that rainwater goods are damaged include rotten roofing elements.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to fix if dealt with quickly.

Defective door frame

In a Bognor Regis HomeBuyer Report, what could a Condition Rating 1 mean for outside doors?

Aspects of the property in good or excellent condition are marked as 'green' with a condition rating of 1, but regular upkeep may still be required. Some areas may be marked as 'Not inspected'. The HomeBuyer Report has a standard format, which the surveyor will complete according to the nuances of the particular property, omitting sections as necessary. External doors are checked where keys are available, but not forced open. Generally, draughts and damp penetration around the frames will be included. A door frame which has been installed back-to-front is an example.

House Prices

I am going to buy a property in Bognor Regis (PO21). The vendor is asking £111, 222. What different issues will your Bognor Regis local surveyor evaluate during a RICS valuation ?

There is a vast array of things which could have a bearing on property values from national factors such as interest rates to whether it is near the coast or has a coastal view. It often helps to analyse flat prices achieved in the nearby area for similar flats. The average flat price completed between Jul and Oct 2012 was £122, 322, which is £11, 100 more than the price you are intending to pay. The combined house/flat average was £211, 814. 4 Wrighton Court, 89, Upper Bognor Road, Bognor Regis, Arun, West Sussex, PO21 1JH sold for £48, 000 .

In order for you to get an accurate house valued is to get a Homebuyer Report in Bognor Regis which includes a Property Valuation Report as standard. Your RICS chartered surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme.
