HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Chichester and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Chichester property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations on the Chichester property, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This option is less cheap but it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Chichester property's state of repair as well as advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact does wet weather have on our new house, and does our RICS surveyor in Chichester mention it? Could it affect the property value?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, the impact heavy rain can have on Chichester property is not given the attention it deserves. One indication that drainage systems are under performing is leaves or other vegetation causing a blockage, but you may wish to ask your surveyor for more detail. Luckily, drainage problems are generally easy to fix, and is also relatively inexpensive. If left untreated, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and will get increasingly difficult to successfully resolve.

Timber damage by insect larvae

My friend spotted signs of pests in the lounge. Should we get a surveyor?

Chichester home buyers should know that is not a requirement that a seller to disclose a vermin problem. Evidence may not be easy to find, for example, cluster, or swarming flies, are often found in lofts and can be a serious, seasonal annoyance if not treated. Remedies to pests can include 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.

Asbestos roof tiles

A friend's builder stated there is a concern of asbestos roof tiles affecting the property. What is asbestos and does the survey look at this?

Asbestos is a deleterious material. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) may be in building materials such as duct connectors.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has good heat resistance qualities and it may be found in pipe lagging insulation. Technically all forms are deadly and might lead to lung cancer or pleural disease following prolonged exposure. Its existence does not necessarily constitute a risk to health.

Should you find asbestos, you should be careful never to remove asbestos and expert advice should be sought ASAP. You should not attempt to remove it yourself. Surveyors cannot tell you whether there is asbestos on a survey. However, surveyors will note suspected asbestos and will recommend professional testing.
