HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Worthing and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Worthing property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey instead. This survey is less cheap however it does offer a thorough analysis of the Worthing property's general condition in addition to advice on structural defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any things we would need to look into when buying an extended house in Worthing near a conservation area ?

There are many thousands of designated conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are overseen by local authorities. Surveyors in Worthing need to possess local knowledge of local issues and the connection may have with the property. Property Prices are generally higher than non conservation area equivalents which is down to conservation areas being in their original state.

RICS surveyors are trained to report whether the property might be within a conservation area and Section I of your Worthing Homebuyer Report will advise additional due diligence and enquiries are conducted by your legal representation. Unsympathetic adjustments that do not have Local Authority approval will also be reported, however these should be investigated

by your lawyer. Woolacott & Co are a local firm situated at 71 South Street, Worthing, West Sussex, BN15 8AP will be happy to give you some pointers. Tel: 01903 764334

Traditionally built property

What should we look out for when buying an older property in Worthing? What impact will the structure's thatched roof have on maintenance?

Some purchasers would be interested in owning a home with character. Vernacular architecture, however, can be a cause of concern for would-be buyers, and Worthing structures showcasing traditional methods can be unexpectedly hard to maintain. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary. Materials suitable for the work may also need to be sourced. If you plan to make alterations to a period home, discuss options with the surveyor for more detail.

Asbestos roof tiles

The vendor has mentioned there is a danger of asbestos lagging situated in the maisonette. What is asbestos and can it be easily dealt with?

Asbestos is a harmful fibrous material formed from metamorphic rocks. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) are often building materials such as fire blankets. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has characteristic sound absorption properties, it may be found in walls. Technically all forms are deadly and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Its existence does not necessarily pose a risk to health.

Should you find asbestos, you should be careful on no account to break asbestos and expert advice must be taken urgently. Never attempt to remove it yourself. Worthing Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos on a Worthing home survey. However they will mention the risk of asbestos risks and will suggest experts are consulted.
