HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Hassocks and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Hassocks property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any significant alterations, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Hassocks property's state of repair as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we viewed the period property we intend to move into We noticed that there could be corrosion of the wiring - will a Hassocks survey report on the wiring and fusebox?

When performing a Home Survey in Hassocks the surveyor will add detail on the electrics if it is suspected that the electrics are in a dangerous state of repair. A Surveyor is trained to issues like inspecting the state of any fitted appliances e.g. storage radiators

or verifying the condition of any visible wiring a representative sample of switch gear. Inspecting any documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report handled by an electrician should usually form part of the survey.

The Institute of Electrical Engineers advise a PIR need be completed every ten years (5 if letting).

Damaged Render

What sort of thing will the RICS Surveyor look for on a stucco Victorian home in Hassocks.

Stucco is in fact just a form of render. Usually stucco render is applied to brick that sets to an even finish. The finish is highly grand in appearance and is was often applied to Victorian and Georgian properties. Stucco is often problematic and Hassocks Home Buyers Suveys sometimes reveal issues e.g. lateral cracking that follows the mortar joints underneath. Other potential problems can possibly result be when water under sills that results in large areas of detachment. Re-covering problems with stucco may be costly as skilled tradesmen are becoming more difficult to find.

Traditionally built property

What do I need to investigate when buying a house built in around 1720? What effect will the wooden structure have on regular maintenance?

Older construction methods and materials can concern buyers, and Structures featuring traditional methods can be challenging to upkeep. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary. Materials suitable for the work may also need to be sourced.
