HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in West Sussex and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the West Sussex property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any an extension, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This option is less cheap but it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the West Sussex property's general condition as well as including advice on defects and maintenance options .

For more detailed advice you can get a West Sussex House Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

English Heritage

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

Amberley Castle is a scheduled monument considered to be of national importance. Places of local importance often add to the attractiveness of an area. Other nearby sites of interest include Arundel Castle, Bexley Bushes Earthworks and Bowl Barrow On Didling Hill.. A surveyor will consider all local factors when carrying out the home buyers survey in West Sussex. Refer to the English Heritage website for more details on Amberley Castle.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I am looking for brick guidelines for upkeep - can a property surveyor in West Sussex assist?

West Sussex brick-walled flats can be affected by diverse problems, from DPC failure to badly applied render. The chartered surveyor would usually include these. An issue of particular concern is rusted ties (this decay can be accelerated by black ash mortar often found in older properties). This expansion of the ties as they rust causes horizontal cracks leading to structural issues. Best Brickwork Sussex And Kent at 27 Hollingdean Ter, Brighton, BN1 7HB should give an estimate for any work. Call them on 07427 046505.

A broad range of techniques of brick building can be found across West Sussex. Maintenance work may be more time-consuming and costly than you assume. If the 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.

Shocking Electrics

When I was shown the building I am intending to move into, the agent said that there could be corrosion of the wiring; will a West Sussex Homebuyer Report go into detail on the wiring and fusebox?

During a West Sussex Home Survey the surveyor should comment on the state of the electrics if it is clear that the electrics are in an unsafe state. This should include a by sight inspection (without removing any fittings) of exposed sections of the wiring as well as things like checking the type of any electrical fittings in bathrooms or checking the state of a representative sample of light fittings.

Verifying the existence of any evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical connections handled by an electrician should form part of the survey.

The IEE suggest a Periodic Inspection Report (PIR) be conducted every ten years (or every 5 if renting out).
