HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Steyning and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Steyning property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Steyning property's condition as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

English Heritage

I am intending to buy a building close to Bramber Castle , will this affect the property's value?

Bramber Castle is a scheduled monument considered to be of national importance. Places of local interest can enhance the desirability of an area. A surveyor will consider all local criteria when carrying out the home buyers survey in Steyning. Refer to the English Heritage website for further details on Bramber Castle.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We want to put in an offer on a place in Steyning. Is there any London brick upkeep guidance we should be aware of??

Brick-constructed buildings feature several advantages. However, they can also indicate distinct issues. Your surveyor in Steyning will cover these in his report, with advice on the consequences were they to go untreated. One frequently reported defect is extensive damp where water has been drawn in through or between poorly fitted brickwork. J B Brickwork may be able to give an estimate for any necessary upkeep. Contact them at 16 Finnamore Wood Camp/Frieth Rd, Marlow, SL7 2HU or 07779 006039.

Steyning home purchasers may need to consider that selection of different courses and brick making techniques are found in many homes built in this country. E.g. Monk bond, which is similar to Flemish bond, but with two long bricks between every short one.

If the Steyning surveyor does raise concerns about a brick wall defect or structural issue, it may be wise to speak to a builder before completion to assess the extent and cost of the work.

Damage resulting from flooding

Would our Steyning surveyor consider signs of water damage?

Heavy rain, clogged drains and overflowing streams can cause flooding damage. Those planning to buy in affected areas should weigh up their exposure. The Environment Agency maintain a flood danger alert service, with regular updated risk assessments. Flood water can enter a Steyning home through several routes, including loose patio doors.

Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. appropriate drainage, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.
