HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Hurstpierpoint and of the 3, which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is basically the same the same survey.

If the Hurstpierpoint property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out alterations, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it will give exhaustive analysis of the Hurstpierpoint property's state of repair along with advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

Can structures constructed with stone create more problems for a new owner? Which major potential issues should we consider, and what will the survey reveal?

Britain's varied geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Waddington Sandstone to Dukes Gritstone. Defects affecting stone-built properties in Hurstpierpoint can vary, staining being relatively common. 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. You can ask the surveyor carrying out the survey for specific advice, but common maintenance suggestions include repointing of loose or crumbling mortar.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I am purchasing a Hurstpierpoint house and am concerned that the clay soil foundations have suffered some subsidence. Can the Property Survey consider this?

Without due care and attention, foundations dug into clay soil can quickly suffer adverse affects, with subsidence being a common example. In Hurstpierpoint's relatively mild climate, the variations in volume which clay soil experiences will be barely noticeable, but extended dry or wet spells may well impact the soil's stability and affecting the property itself. .

If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Hurstpierpoint home's foundations, forcing them inward. There is a real benefit in booking a Hurstpierpoint surveyor to carry out your HomeBuyer Report, familiar with local soil composition, and who has witnessed the effects first-hand. If soil water levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is also important. Your surveyor may be able to offer practical suggestions as to how this can be achieved.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact should damp weather have on our new Hurstpierpoint home? Will the surveyor report on this? Could damaged gutters lower the property value?

Both in Hurstpierpoint, and throughout the county, rain is so common that buyers rarely think about it. Unfortunately wet weather and the effect it can have on Hurstpierpoint buildings are ignored by buyers. As an example, rusted iron elements can often mean that the drainage are worth a closer look, and may lead to hazardous mould. These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to resolve, if maintenance is taken seriously.
