HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same survey.

If the Seaford property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any alterations, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Seaford property's state of repair as well as including advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any things we would be advised to look out for when purchasing a period property in Seaford in the vicinity of conservation area ?

There are thousands of designated conservation areas in England and Wales which are governed by the local authority. Surveyors in Seaford are required by RICS to possess knowledge of local considerations and the effect may have with the property and its value. House prices are usually higher than non conservation area equivalents which is down to them retaining original features. However many conservation areas are falling into a state for example - the addition of PVC windows and doors

Surveyors are expected tell you if the property is/might be within a conservation area and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Seaford Homebuyer Report

will advise suitable questions are conducted by the conveyancing solicitor. Out of keeping modifications to the property may be reported, however these should be concern for your legal representative.

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing in Seaford. What will we need to think about when purchasing a building constructed in 1770? Will the house's age be a concern?

Many purchasers have considered buying property with real personality. A property's age, however, can be a cause of concern for would-be buyers, and Seaford property constructed with traditional methods can be surprisingly expensive to repair. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional building materials.

Shocking Electrics

When I viewed a sixties house I am interested to buy I saw that there is an unsafe electrical system; does a surveyor write anything on any faults with the electrics?

When carrying out a Seaford Homebuyer Report your surveyor will typically mention the electrics if it is obvious that they are in an unsafe state. A professional surveyor is trained to possible problems relating to things like whether there is an on-peak/off-peak supply.

Confirming the existence of any documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical installations carried out by a suitably qualified electrician on the property being surveyed will usually form part of the survey. Inspecting any documents from any recent PIR handled by an electrician will be part of the survey.

The IEE (Institute of Electrical Engineers) advocate that an electrical check should be carried out at least every 10 years (or every 5 if letting out).
