HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Rottingdean and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same.

If the Rottingdean property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make an extension, you should you book a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is less cheap but it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Rottingdean property's condition as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Rottingdean, and think we saw signs of pests in the toilet. What should we do?

Questions regarding the infestation of a Rottingdean building may not be raised during the conveyancing. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. It may not be obvious that a building is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. As an example, damage to stored clothes or carpets is a sign of a moth infestation, but may not be spotted for months. Remedies to pest problems can include traps. If you believe wasps, or any pest, may be present, request that your property surveyor pay close attention during the survey.

Building Surveys on maisonettes

Is it necessary to upgrade to full structural survey prior to investing in a neglected period first floor maisonette in Rottingdean?

Building Survey has taken over the Structural Survey following its renaming some time ago by RICS. This is the best home survey if buying an altered home such as an unloved maisonette in Rottingdean. This type of survey portrays thorough and notable insight on the buildings construction and uses in addition to any technical details, shortly after a thorough visual inspection of the accessible areas of the house.

Conservation area

Will there be any problems we would need to on guard for when purchasing a converted flat in Rottingdean in a conservation area?

There are many thousands of designated conservation areas throughout England and Wales that are designated and monitored by the local council.

A Building Surveyors must have local knowledge of local factors and the effect they have on the property. The value of homes is usually higher than non conservation area equivalents due to them being preserved. However a growing number are falling into shoddy condition e.g. the huge increase in street clutter

Surveyors are expected report whether the property could be within a conservation area and Section I of a Rottingdean Homebuyer Report will advise further investigations are conducted by your legal representation. Out of keeping developments to the building may be advised, however these should be investigated by your lawyer.
