HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Felpham and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Felpham property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension on the Felpham property, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it does give you a thorough analysis of the Felpham property's condition as well as advice on structural defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing a 17th Century dovecot in Felpham. What consequences will the building's unusual construction have on upkeep?

A property's age can concern buyers. Felpham property built using traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be unexpectedly hard to repair. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional building materials, which could mean expensive ongoing repairs.If you plan to make alterations to a period building, discuss options with the RICS surveyor for more detail.

Landfill site near home

What should I be concerned about when buying a property proximate to a landfill site

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes including domestic waste disposal. No one would want to live near one (most people do live within 1.5m of one!). Worries include structurally instability. Potential health concerns like downs syndrome have been associated with landfill sites .

Surveyors in Felpham will examine any structural defects resulting from the landfill. Your conveyancing solicitor will commission conveyancing and environmental searches of the Landmark database as well as Arun Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what effect may heavy rainfall have on our new building, and does our property surveyor mention it? If there is work that needs to be done, will they be inconvenient to fix?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, heavy rainfall and the effect it can have on your home are not given more thought by buyers. As an example, spattered mud around the bottom of downspouts may indicate that the gutters are damaged.

Fortunately, issues with rainwater goods are usually easy to fix, and is also relatively inexpensive. However, if the drains are left untreated, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair.
