HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Felpham and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same.

If the Felpham property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension on the Felpham property, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it does give you a thorough analysis of the Felpham property's condition as well as advice on structural defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Deteriorated timber

On a Felpham HomeBuyer Report, what might 'E8' cover?

The format of the RICS HomeBuyer Report is clear and easy to read. As buyers in Felpham are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. A 'traffic light' system of colour coding is used to confirm to what extent any problems or notable points may negatively impact the property. Some areas may be marked as 'Not inspected'. If a Felpham house or flat does not have a porch or conservatory, for example, these aspects of the report will be omitted. One example issue could be buckled or undulating metal sidings. Problems impacting the roof are checked

here. These are inspected with the aid of binoculars where appropriate. Both bargeboards, and general verge details, are reported on.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The house we plan to purchase is built on clay soil. Will my Home Buyers Survey look into this, and will the Surveyor advise on upkeep?

Soil composition can have a great impact on a home. Subsidence is a major concern, but there are others, including severe changes in the water table level. Evidence of clay soil-related problems can sometimes be found throughout a building, such as sticking window frames. A Felpham surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. The building foundations may need extra support in some cases. A surveyor can confirm if this is necessary, as it can be a lengthy process.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what effect may heavy rainfall have on our new building, and does our property surveyor mention it? If there is work that needs to be done, will they be inconvenient to fix?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, heavy rainfall and the effect it can have on your home are not given more thought by buyers. As an example, spattered mud around the bottom of downspouts may indicate that the gutters are damaged.

Fortunately, issues with rainwater goods are usually easy to fix, and is also relatively inexpensive. However, if the drains are left untreated, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair.
