HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Burgess Hill and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Burgess Hill property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, however it will give exhaustive analysis of the Burgess Hill property's state of repair and it includes information on defects as well as maintenance options .

For more detailed advice you can get a Burgess Hill Homebuyers Survey Quote on our site or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying a Burgess Hill home but are worried about vermin. Will the Property Survey investigate this?

Questions regarding the infestation of a Burgess Hill house may not be raised during the conveyancing. Regrettably, pests can be costly to fix and carry serious health risks. Evidence may not be easy to find. As an example, woodworm can be extremely destructive, but fortunately their 'tunnels' in timber and wood furniture are usually quite easy to spot. Treatment for pests may include chemical treatment and destruction of tainted materials.

Gas flame

Will a RICS surveyor check out the safety of the gas flues?

The will visually look at any easily accessible parts of the system. The survey will include gas heaters (also LPG/oil/electric) at the home, as well as gas related appliances/installations such as chimney linings. The fittings will not be taken off. Most people are aware that gas can be hazardous, if you have any worries about gas, contact a gas safe engineer without delay.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

As well as reporting on condition, will I get a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate and how is it worked out

The Homebuyer Report contains an impartial valuation and a reinstatement cost. To properly appraise the property's value your chartered surveyor will call upon local Burgess Hill market factors and other things relating to the property for instance: accommodation The RICS surveyor will also consider construction methods and will use other assumptions, for example there being no significant defects.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The valuation also assumes that there are no expensive legal problems such as the tenure being as indicated (e.g share of freehold). Advice should be sought from your solicitor.

Further Burgess Hill conjectures, for example connection to sewers, are made in addition to any local environmental issues like nearby railway tracks, which will also be factored in.
