HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Woodingdean and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Woodingdean property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, you should you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it does give exhaustive analysis of the Woodingdean property's state of repair as well as information on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Property Surveyor look out for on a stucco regency house in Woodingdean.

Stucco is actually just a type of render. Commonly stucco render is layered over brick hardens to a smooth stone like appearance. The effect is highly appealing and was often applied to Victorian and Georgian properties. it can be problematic and Woodingdean surveyors sometimes focus on potentially expensive to remedy problems such as horizontal hairline cracking that follows the underlying mortar joints. Other potential problems may result from the supporting heavy loads such as cracking under supports carrying concrete roof tiles that have absorbed water. Remedying Stucco problems can be expensive as the skills are becoming more difficult to find.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is high levels of rainfall an issue in Woodingdean? Will the chartered surveyor report on this? Are repairs going to be expensive?

Regular rainfall is common in Woodingdean and across the country, but rainfall and the effect it can have on property are rarely considered properly by buyers. If you have investigated the house you are buying in warm weather, defects may not have been obvious. Poor drainage can lead to damage to foundations.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to resolve, if caught early. If untreated or poorly maintained, however, the damage will impact both the home's value, and the residents' enjoyment of the property.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Will my survey give a property valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes and what will it include?

A Homebuyer Report on a Woodingdean property will include a valuation and also a Reinstatement Cost as an integral part of the report. To ascertain the property's value the surveyor will refer to in depth understanding of the Woodingdean market as well as other factors about the property for instance: square metres The surveyor will also consider construction type and draw upon key assumptions like there are no dangerous materials. Surveyors ignore things like sales incentives.

Further Woodingdean conjectures, like water and drainage connectivity, are made in addition to any environmental problems like mining activity, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.
