HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Stone Cross and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Stone Cross property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any significant alterations on the Stone Cross property, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey.

Asbestos roof tiles

A Stone Cross builder commented that there could be powdery asbestos soffit boards situated in the ground floor flat. Which types of asbestos are a concern?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous material. Some types may be in building materials for example boards around windows. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has good tensile strength qualities and it may be found in boards around radiators.

All forms are hazardous and may lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. If discovered, one must be careful on no account to break asbestos and professional advice should be sought as soon as possible.

Surveyors will not verify the presence of asbestos on a Stone Cross home survey. They will report on the risk of asbestos during the survey and should suggest experts are consulted.

House Prices

I intend to buy a property in Stone Cross (BN23). It is on the market for £111, 150. What things does a surveyor take into account on a Home Survey ?

There are many factors that can impact on property values from location of nearby transport links to overall area pricing. It often helps to look at flat prices achieved in Stone Cross at the same time for comparable properties. The average flat price registered between Jul and Oct 2012 was £93, 250, which is £17, 900 less than £111, 150 - the amount you buying for. The combined house/flat average was £197, 305. 80, Snowdon Close, Eastbourne, Eastbourne, East Sussex, BN23 8HZ a leasehold maisonette sold for £97, 500 .

The most accurate way to get a formal home valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as a core component.
