HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in St Leonards On Sea and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is basically the same the same.

If the St Leonards On Sea property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it will give you a more detailed analysis of the St Leonards On Sea property's condition as well as more detailed advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

We are buying a residential property with Beer stone walls. Are there specific defects to bear in mind?

Britain's varied geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Waddington Sandstone to Dukes Gritstone. Defects affecting stone-built property can vary, spalling brick being relatively common. Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to property, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used for decorative elements. Ashlar courses are often used to finish more irregular stone walls, with a brick or rubble wall beneath. This can give rise to maintenance issues if either element of the wall has been treated with a non-breathable material. Guidelines for better stone wall upkeep include removal of invasive plants, such as ivy.

Damage resulting from flooding

What's the danger of flooding in St Leonards On Sea. Can a house surveyor consider signs of flood damage?

Heavy rain, burst riverbanks and clogged drainage could all cause major flooding damage. If you are planning to buy in a flood-affected area, a house survey will inform your decision. It is strongly recommended that proper precautions are taken, before any water damage happens, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst.

The GroundSure Flood Report is one of several risk screening reports designed to provide an overview of whether a St Leonards On Sea house lies within an area of potential or previous flood risk. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a house survey if the chartered surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the St Leonards On Sea house is at risk.
