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 .

If in doubt why not obtain an instant Worthing House Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Our agent warned us that access to the roof could be something to worry about, and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. What should we investigate as part of the survey?

Residential property in Worthing in good condition can be blighted by roofing woes, like ponding. All aspects of the roof should be reviewed, from the clay tiles to the wind braces. Factors like a slope of less than 12 to 15 degrees are particularly troublesome for flat roofed property.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Worthing, but it is a health and safety necessity. A quote (or several) for any necessary work should be acquired as soon as possible. Speak to James of 12 Upton Rd, Worthing, BN13 1BU on 01903 693468 for an estimate.

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about vermin in the house we plan to buy. Is a Full Structural Survey advisable?

Purchasers should know that is not a requirement that a seller report on an infestation. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can affect the health of residents and affect its value.

It may not be obvious that a home is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. As an example, woodworm, or larvae of the common furniture beetle, may be identified after finding neat small holes in wood, accompanied by piles of wood dust beneath. Treatment for pest problems may include insecticides or removal or excision of affected timber. If you strongly suspect an issue with dust mites, or any pest, speak to your home surveyor

House Prices

Is £123, 058 a good amount to buy a property located in BN11 for and what considerations will a Worthing RICS chartered surveyor evaluate when valuing house prices in Worthing on a survey ?

There are a huge number of issues which could affect property values such as the amount of service charges payable or the height of ceilings. It may help to set against the prices of flat registered at the Land Registry for similar flats. The mean flat price paid in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £144, 958, which is £21, 900 more than the amount you are paying. The combined house/flat average was £214, 653. 151, First Floor Flat, Park Road, Worthing, Worthing, West Sussex, BN11 2AL recently sold for £88, 250 .

The most accurate way for you to get an independent home valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report (or Property Valuation Report) which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as standard.
