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?

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

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 .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

A local builder has suggested subsidence could be an issue impacting the flat. What subsidence-related matters will the Chartered Surveyor reveal?

Movement of the foundations of a home is called subsidence. Generally, a builder will return to a new home within a few months in order to repair settlement damage.

Cracks are a clear indication of subsidence, though they could be nothing to worry about. In severe temperatures, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence, but this is not generally an issue in the UK.

Learning the cause of any subsidence should be the first priority. It has been estimated that around 70 per cent of cases of subsidence are caused by tree roots taking the moisture out of the soil. Your surveyor may suggest that you talk to an arborist to find out the best cause of action if trees or other plant life is the suspected cause.

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will bugs affect the purchase price of a Peacehaven house - What advice should we get?

Pests like cockroaches may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Peacehaven. When purchasing a home, this matter should be borne in mind. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months. As an example, skin irritation or spots of blood on bedsheets may indicate the presence of bed bugs. Remedies can take time, so if you opt to proceed with the purchase, check with a specialist how long treatment will take. If you believe cockroaches, or any pest, may be present, request that your chartered surveyor pay close attention during the survey.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what effect will rain have on our new Peacehaven house? Are repairs going to be expensive?

Both in Peacehaven, and throughout the county, rain is so common that buyers rarely think about it. Unfortunately the effect which wet conditions has on Peacehaven property is usually overlooked by purchasers. For instance, flaking or efflorescence on external walls will likely suggest that the drainage systems are at risk. Fortunately, issues with rainwater goods are quite easy to repair, if identified early.
