HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Ferring and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is effectively the same survey.

If the Ferring property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out major works, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Ferring property's state of repair as well as information on defects and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

A resident warned us about bugs affecting properties nearby. What should we do?

Any questions about pests affecting a Ferring building may not be asked by the lawyer. This problem should be taken seriously. An affected building may not always be easy to identify, for example, irritating cluster flies will hibernate in Autumn, but will return every year without treatment. Remedies to bug or other pest issues can include professional cleaning and removal or excision of affected timber. If you strongly suspect an issue with termites, or any pest, speak to your surveyor

House Prices

I intend to purchase a detached property in Ferring (BN12) for £267, 820. What things does the Ferring chartered surveyor take into account during a professional valuation ?

There are a huge number of issues that can add to or subtract from property values from state of repair of the property to the size of the garden. One method is to put side by side the prices of house achieved in the area for similar houses.

The means house prices paid between July and October in 2012 was £289, 720, which is £21, 900 more than the price you are intending to pay. The house/flat average was £265, 154. 134, Alinora Crescent, Goring By Sea, Worthing, Worthing, West Sussex, BN12 4HJ a detached house sold for £60, 000 .

In order to get an impartial house valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation as a core component.

Stone block wall damage

I am buying a stone-walled Ferring house. Which major matters should we consider?

If left in a poor state of repair, stone walls will suffer from structural issues caused by factors including displacement. The problems which can plague poorly maintained stone vary considerably.

Stone walls are either regular (cut) or irregular in structure, each of which will provoke particular concerns. Ashlar courses are often used to finish more irregular stone walls, with a brick or rubble wall beneath. This can give rise to maintenance issues if either element of the wall has been treated with a non-breathable material. Maintenance tips include fast replacement of any stones which have become loose. Purchasers renovating Ferring property should be aware that the British Geological Survey's GeoReport includes a stone matching service. To source stone quarried in Ferring, you can contact local suppliers.

For more details, contact a local stonemason or specialist. For example, Powell Jones Ltd, 53 Ferringham La, Ferring, Worthing, BN12 5NU.
