HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Forest Row and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Forest Row property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out significant alterations, you should you go for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Forest Row property's general condition as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

For further advice you can get a Forest Row House Survey Quote on our site or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Asbestos roof tiles

A friend's builder stated there is a concern of asbestos roof tiles affecting the property. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a harmful fibrous substance. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White may be in building materials e.g. artex.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has good heat resistance qualities and it may be found in the home appliances for example. Technically all forms are ultimately dangerous and can lead to lung cancer or fibrosis following prolonged exposure. Contrary to common perception, inhaling a single fibre will not kill you.

If found, care should be taken never to break the asbestos and professional advice must be taken urgently. Getting rid of asbestos can be dear but absolutely must be conducted by experts. Forest Row Surveyors cannot test for asbestos on a Forest Row HomeBuyer report. However, surveyors will report on possible asbestos and will suggest further investigation.

House Prices

Is £312, 100 a reasonable price to buy a property in RH18 in Forest Row for. What will a Forest Row qualified surveyor evaluate during a professional valuation ?

There are many factors that can affect property values for instance the homes proximity to contaminated land or the size of the garden. You can try to compare with prices recorded in Forest Row for comparable properties. The average flat price recorded between Jul and Oct 2012 was £337, 500, which is £25, 400 more than the amount the vendor is asking for. The combined house/flat average was £477, 548. Ashwood Court, 11, Highgate Road, Forest Row, Wealden, East Sussex, RH18 5BT a leasehold maisonette sold for £300, 000 .

An impartial way to get a formal property valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report as part of the service. Your qualified surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (established register of valuers).

A professional qualified RICS surveyor will always attend the property in addition to considering the large variety of area variables that can affect the value of property.

Building Surveys on houses

Is it necessary to upgrade to full structural survey before buying a modified period house in Forest Row?

Full Structural Surveys are now called the Building Surveys. If you are buying an altered Forest Row house like an extended house, the Building Survey is the correct choice of home survey. This survey can give often serious information about the property's construction and uses in conjunction with any defects a thorough visual inspection of the inside and outside of the main building. There will be certain limitations with a Building Survey as the surveyor will not be able to (unless owners consent provided) open up the fabric of the of the Forest Row house - such as undoing electrical fittings.
