HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Brighton and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Brighton property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension on the property, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Brighton property's general condition and it includes advice on defects and maintenance options .

If in doubt get a Brighton House Survey Quote online or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Stone block wall damage

I am intending to put an offer in on a property in Brighton constructed stone. What should we be particularly aware of, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

Locally quarried stone may be more susceptible to specific issues. Faults common to poorly maintained stone walls can include staining. Stone quarried in the area is common to local properties in Brighton, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county. Different stone types will also decay a different rates based on environmental conditions. For example, slate is far more water-resistant than many other stones. Guidelines for better stone wall upkeep include repointing of loose or crumbling mortar.

For more information, consider a stonemason or specialist in Brighton. For example, Brighton Architectural Salvage, 33-34 Gloucester Rd, Brighton, BN1 4AQ may help.

Building Surveys on apartments

Is it best to opt for a full structural survey prior to investing in a neglected seventies live-work apartment in Brighton?

The Building Survey is now the correct term for the Full Structural Survey following its new title some time ago by RICS. Choose the Building Survey for the apartment described. The HomeBuyer Report is appropriate for a non period unmodified home built out of normal construction materials and methods.

There are some restrictions exist with any survey as a qualified surveyor cannot force or open up the fabric of the apartment nor can he/she comment on the regulatory compliance of heating systems.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Which Brighton Surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for reconstructing a boundary wall) and what does it include?

A Homebuyer Report in Brighton will include a surveyor valuation as well as a cost of reinstatement. When calculating the value of the property your independent surveyor will take into account knowledge of Brighton and other things relating to the property for instance: general condition The surveyor will also consider certain fixtures and fittings and draw upon key assumptions e.g. the ground is not land filled.
