HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Ferring and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Ferring property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out major works, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Ferring property's state of repair as well as information on defects and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect could wet weather have on a property in Ferring? Could it affect the property value?

Signs that gutters are at risk include flaking or efflorescence on external walls. In most cases, drainage problems are usually easy to resolve for a reasonable cost, unless they are poorly maintained. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Our seller mentioned that the had been issues with damage to the parapet. Will access to the home's roof be something to worry about?

This is frequently addressed by Ferring surveyors. Houses across Ferring may be exposed to difficulties with the roof. From rafters to tie beams, many parts of the roof and loft should be reported on. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like being literally flat, as opposed to on a small incline so that water can drain correctly.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like loft insulation, 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 Ferring contractor with a recommendation from a friend or family member should be able to assist with a quote.
