HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Shoreham By Sea and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is effectively the same survey.

If the Shoreham By Sea property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out an extension, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, however it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Shoreham By Sea property's condition as well as information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

We are buying an older dovecot in Shoreham By Sea. What consequences will the structure's timber frame have on maintenance?

Many buyers would like to own a unique or characterful property. A property's age, however, can often be problematic, and Shoreham By Sea homes constructed with traditional methods can be expensive to upkeep. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary. Construction materials, such as matching tiles, may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of property in a conservation area. Discuss this with your property surveyor for further advice.

Building Surveys on houses

Is it best to get a full structural survey prior to acquiring a modified fifties house in Shoreham By Sea?

Structural surveys are now reclassified as Building Surveys. Select the Building Survey for the house outlined. A HomeBuyer Report goes into enough detail for a mid 20th century of later Shoreham By Sea house of typical building materials. Be aware that certain survey no go areas come with any residential survey - RICS chartered surveyor will not be able to (unless owners consent provided) force or open up the structure of the property for example, or inspect where doing so could cause damage to the house.

Shocking Electrics

When I viewed the house I am intending to lease I think we saw that there was no RCD on the fuse board - does a Shoreham By Sea survey report on any faults with the electrics?

When performing a Shoreham By Sea Home Buyers Survey a qualified surveyor will remark on the condition of the electrics if it is obvious that they are in a hazardous state.

This will include a general inspection (without removing any fittings) of any uncovered sections of the wiring or fusebox on top of potential areas for concern such as examining the state of repair of any fixed electrical appliances e.g. storage radiators or reporting on the condition of any visible wiring a representative sample of switch gear. Inspecting the evidence of the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by an electrician should usually form part of the survey.

The Institute of Electrical Engineers recommend that an electrical system check need be completed every ten years (or every 5 if renting out).
