HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Southwater and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Southwater property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any works or an extension, you should you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it does give a thorough analysis of the Southwater property's state of repair and it includes advice on structural defects , repairs and maintenance options .

House Prices

There is a detached house close to RH13 on with a local agent for £330, 361. What things does the local surveyor take into account when estimating house prices in Southwater ?

There are many factors that can impact on property values like the amount of ground rent payable or the likelihood of development occurring nearby. It is useful to benchmark prices values recorded in the same area for similar properties.

The means house prices paid between Jul and Oct 2012 was £310, 861, which is £19, 500 less than the amount you are paying. The average factoring in houses and flats was £297, 728. 2 Courtlands, Worthing Road, Horsham, Horsham, West Sussex, RH13 9AT a detached property was sold in the last 3 months for £495, 000 .

The most reliable way for home buyers to get an accurate and professional property valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation as a core component.

A professional local surveyor should go to the home as well as factoring in all other influences that can affect property values.

Gas flame

Will a surveyor examine the condition or the safety of the gas appliances?

The qualified surveyor will visually examine the accessible parts of the system. This means things like the routing of any gas pipes as part of the Southwater survey, as well as gas connected installations such as chimney breasts or flues. Your Southwater qualified RICS surveyor won't remove any fittings and will not carry out any tests of any kind on the functionality of the gas system. You should never attempt to fix gas fittings your self as it is potentially unsafe, should there be any worries about gas fittings, call an engineer.

Damaged Render

What defects will my Southwater Surveyor be looking for on a stucco rendered regency house in Southwater.

Stucco is in fact a smooth and flat render. Normally it is layered over brick hardens to form a flat surface, often then trowled to give the appearance of stone blocks. The effect is highly aesthetic and is often found on Regency properties. it can be prone to defect and Southwater Building Surveys can discover any number of problems for example, horizontal pattern like cracking revealing the underlying mortar joints. Other potential problems could be when dampness below sills that results in large areas of detachment. Re-applying Stucco problems may be surprisingly expensive as the skills are becoming harder to find.
