HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Cuckfield and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same.

If the Cuckfield property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out major works, you should you go for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Cuckfield property's condition in addition to information on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

We are purchasing an 1820s Cuckfield property with stone walls. What should we look in to, and what does the survey cover?

Locally quarried stone may be more susceptible to specific issues. Faults common to poorly maintained stone walls can include efflorescence. Stone quarried in the area is common to local Cuckfield properties, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county. Guidelines for better stone wall upkeep include fast replacement of any stones which have become loose. Purchasers renovating Cuckfield properties should be aware that a stone matching service is operated by the British Geological Survey, as part of the Building Stone Assessment GeoReport. To source stone quarried in Cuckfield, you can contact local suppliers.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Ardingly Rail Depot, College Road, Ardingly, Haywards Heath, West Sussex, RH17 6SH, which quarries Crushed Rock, for details. Call 01444 892661 for more information.

Conservation area

Are there any problems I should look out for when intending to buy a flat in Cuckfield near a conservation area?

There are 9, 300 official conservation areas throughout the country that are designated and monitored by the local council.

A Building Surveyors are required by RICS to have relevant knowledge of relevant local area issues and the relation they have on the property and its value. Property Prices will probably be higher than non conservation area equivalents due to the areas being largely unspoilt However many are falling into a state of neglect e.g. the unsightly effect of billboard advertising

Surveyors are expected inform you if the home is/might be is designated and Section I of a Cuckfield Homebuyer Report will advise the proper questions are conducted by your conveyancer. Unauthorised modifications that do not have Local Authority approval will also be reported, however these should be investigated by your legal adviser.

Roof defects identified during a survey

I am going to put in an offer in on a home in Cuckfield - What does the Cuckfield surveyor keep an eye out for during the investigation?

Cuckfield houses in otherwise fine condition could feature roof maintenance problems, such as damp. All aspects of the roof should be reviewed, from the gables to the wind braces. Factors like amateur repairs are particularly troublesome for flat roofed property.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like wholesale replacement, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. A contractor in Cuckfield with positive reviews should be able to assist with a quote.
