HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Bosham and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Bosham property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, you should you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Bosham property's general condition and it includes information on defects as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Do all Bosham surveys include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of professional fees) and what does it include?

A Homebuyer Report on a Bosham property will include a professional valuation and a reinstatement cost. To estimate an accurate value estimate your independent surveyor will pair area knowledge and other factors relating to the property for instance: square metres.

Surveyors also examine certain fixtures and fittings and will make certain key assumptions, for example there are no damaging materials. Surveyors ignore certain things like furnishings e.g. carpets.

Additional local area conjectures, for example connection to sewers, are made in addition to environmental problems like intrusive noises or smells, which will also be factored in. A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however,

be added for a small additional fee ; call for more info. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Conservation area

Are there any considerations I need to verify when intending to buy a flat in Bosham near a conservation area ?

There are many thousands of conservation areas in the UK that are designated and monitored by local councils.

A Building Surveyors are required by RICS to possess local knowledge of relevant local issues and any effect they have with the building and its value. Values tends to be inflated because of them being unspoilt.

Surveyors can be expected to advise you whether the building is or might be classified as such and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Bosham Homebuyer Report will advise further enquiries are raised as part of the legal process. Unapproved changes that do not have Local Authority approval will also be noted in the survey, however these should be investigated by the solicitor.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what effect may rainfall have on our new Bosham home? Where there is damage, what should we do?

I find it odd that the effect which wet weather has on houses is rarely paid due attention. One indication that rainwater goods are a cause for concern is flaking or efflorescence on external walls. This can lead to cracked foundations and subsidence.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to repair fairly cheaply. However, if the drains are not maintained, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair. In the worst case scenario, deterioration of a building's foundations can become fatal to its structural integrity, risking collapse.
