HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Horsham and which is cheaper?

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

If the Horsham property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make major works on the property, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Horsham property's state of repair as well as including an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect can rainfall have on a property in Horsham? Also, where there [var10], what should we do?

Climate change is regularly in the news. However the effect which damp weather has on homes in Horsham is rarely paid due attention. One indication that gutters are damaged is spalling on walls around drainage. This can lead to collapsed drains or overflowing septic tank.

The good news is that these defects are quite easy to fix, and is also relatively inexpensive, unless they are not maintained. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.

Traditionally built property

I am buying an old barn conversion. What should be budgeted for upkeep?

A building's age can sometimes be an issue. Buildings built with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be expensive to repair. You should consider that specialist knowledge may be needed. Especially for listed buildings, Traditional building materials may be required. This may increase the importance of getting a comprehensive building survey. Contact your building surveyor for further advice. Built in the 16th century, 11 Causeway in Horsham is a fine example of a Medieval-period hall house.

Building Surveys on houses

Do I need to spend a bit more on full structural survey prior to investing in a defective forties house in Horsham?

Structural surveys are now called Building Surveys. Commission the Building Survey for this house. A HomeBuyer Report is detailed enough if buying a mid 20th century of later unmodified Horsham home assembled from typical building materials.
