HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Penn and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same.

If the Penn property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it will give a thorough analysis of the Penn property's general condition along with advice on defects and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

I don't see the reason to go for the full structural survey if purchasing a substantially modified mid terrace bungalow near Penn as an alternative to a HomeBuyer Report?

Sometimes still described as the Full Structural Survey, it is now defunct and has actually been given a new title by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors and the proper name is actually now the RICS Building Survey.

The HomeBuyer Report goes into enough detail if investigating a post fifties unmodified Penn home made out of typical construction materials. When intending to buy an unconventional house like a neglected house - it is now the best survey to choose to purchase. Following an exhaustive survey of any accessible parts a written report (digital and written copy) will be emailed and posted to the purchaser outlining any far-reaching details in relation to the materials used for the

construction of the building. There will be several limitations with any residential survey because RICS chartered surveyor cannot force or open up the fabric of the Penn house for example moving heavy furniture.

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller has mentioned there is a risk of powdery brown asbestos walls situated in the property. Is this a major concern and will this be a hazard?

Asbestos is a dangerous silicate material. Some types may be in building materials e.g. wall panelling.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has characteristic resistance to chemical damage qualities and it may be found in toilet cistern. Technically all forms are carcinogenic and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered on no account to displace it. Professional advice must be taken urgently.

Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos during a Penn building survey. Surveyors will mention potential asbestos during the survey and will suggest further investigation.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We need Sussex bond guidelines for upkeep, can you help? Will it make a difference if render is applied?

Penn brick-walled apartments can indicate distinct issues. Your surveyor in Penn can investigate these as part of their report, with repair advice also supplied. One frequently reported defect is frost damage, which over time will cause bricks and mortar to disintegrate entirely. A local builder should be able to assist. Call S M B Ltd, 4 Rectory Lane, Byfleet, West Byfleet, KT14 7LL on 01932 347179 for a quote for repair work.

Buyers in Penn should consider that a great deal of variety, both in appearance and manufacture have been used for centuries. This being the case, upkeep may not always be straightforward.
