HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Hove and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Hove property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Hove property's general condition as well as advice on defects and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

There may be vermin at the property we're buying, but we are not certain - Will the HomeBuyer Report investigate this?

Buyers should know that is not a requirement that the vendor to mention a pest issue. When purchasing a home, this matter should be borne in mind. An affected home may not always be easy to identify, carpet beetle larvae, or 'woolly bears' may be recognised by distinctive round bite marks along seams of clothing. Able to survive months without food, there may initially be no obvious evidence of their presence. Treatment for vermin may include use of insecticides and removal of infected furniture. As awareness of less common problems grows, more surveys should identify these and advise on remedies.

Stone block wall damage

I am buying a stone-walled house. Which matters should we consider?

There are several of defects and issues associated with stone-built property. Defects such as salt contamination of affect many stone-walled properties. Bear in mind that some defects will affect regular or irregularly cut stone equally, whereas others will not, and may require a local surveyors expertise to identify. Stone will also decay as a result of environmental conditions, for example, limestone can quickly deteriorate. Stone walls require regular maintenance, such as repointing of loose or crumbling mortar.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

A home we intend to buy is built on clay soil. Does a Property Survey discuss soil composition the report?

If not monitored appropriately, the make up of the soil surrounding a house's foundations can create difficulties. Subsidence is a major concern, but there are others, including soil compaction or compression. There may be little evidence of underlying defects. .

If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Hove house's foundations, leading to bowing, cracks and severe structural damage. A Hove surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. If soil moisture levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is essential. Subsidence and heave can be caused by a general increase or decrease in moisture, but isolated patches of wet and dry can just as easily warp foundations, putting them under even greater pressure.
