HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Storrington and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Storrington property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out significant alterations on the Storrington property, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Storrington property's state of repair and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Gas flame

Will a RICS surveyor report on the safety of the gas supply?

Your local surveyor will visually inspect the accessible parts of the system. This will include gas (and oil heaters) for example, as well as gas related fixtures for example - prefabricated flues. The Storrington chartered surveyor won't remove fittings nor will they run any tests whatsoever on the functionality of the gas system. Of course, gas can be deadly and if there are any worries about gas fittings or if you suspect a gas issue, contact a gas safe engineer immediately.

Stone block wall damage

I am buying a stone-walled Storrington property. What matters must we watch out for?

Stone walls are often ignored by home buyers due to their apparent strength and solidity. Issues which impact the lifespan of stone-built elements are as diverse as the stone varieties themselves. Stone quarried in the area is common to local homes in Storrington, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county. Buyers should consider that stone can have a great effect on the long-term viability of a property or extension, resulting in higher repair costs in future. For example, slate is far more water-resistant than many other stones. Maintenance tips include fast replacement of any stones which have become loose.

Timber damage by insect larvae

There may be insects at the property we're buying, but we are not certain - Is a Property Survey advisable?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. Regrettably, pest problems can be very expensive to resolve and put your health in danger. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months. For example, a moth infestation may not be found for months after purchase, and even if treated, may never be fully eradicated. Treatment for pests may include professional cleaning and removal or excision of affected timber.
