HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Peacehaven and which is the cheapest?

If the Peacehaven property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any significant alterations on the Peacehaven property, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, but it does give you comprehensive details of the Peacehaven property's general condition as well as information on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

Do stone-walled property cause problems for buyers? Are there specific defects to bear in mind?

External wall maintenance is essential to the health of Peacehaven buildings. The problems which can plague poorly maintained stone vary considerably. Irregular stone walls are found throughout the county, and can require more care and attention that regular, brick-like stone walls due greater impact the weather can have on exposed mortar. Ashlar courses are often used to finish more irregular stone walls. This can give rise to maintenance issues if either element of the wall has been treated with a non-breathable material. Advice for better upkeep will vary according to the needs of individual property, such as repointing of loose or crumbling mortar.

For more information, speak to a Peacehaven specialist. Regency Fires Ltd, 36 South Coast Rd, Peacehaven, BN10 8SU (Tel: 01273 582800), for example, could assist.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Should I get a separate valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of reconstructing a retaining wall) and what does it include?

Homebuyer Reports include a (registered valuer) surveyor valuation and will also include a reinstatement cost as a standard part of the survey. When calculating the value of the property your surveyor will take into account knowledge of Peacehaven and other things about the property for instance: desirability of the location. Your Peacehaven surveyor will also consider construction methods and will make certain other assumptions such as there being no significant defects. A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Additional local Peacehaven area conjectures, like the access roads not being in private control, are made in addition to environmental problems like nearby railway tracks, also being considered.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Do clay soil foundations create issues for Peacehaven home? Can the Peacehaven Building Survey consider this?

The content of soil around the foundations of a Peacehaven home will have an impact. Subsidence is one obvious concern, but there are others, including shrinking of clay soil. The consequences may take years to be noticed, or could be felt suddenly, such as a hard-to-open garage door. During the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the home will be considered. If you are particularly concerned about a crack or other sign of movement, the surveyor can also report on whether it is recent, or an indication of much earlier subsidence.
