HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Kemp Town and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Kemp Town property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, 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 book a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap but it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Kemp Town property's condition as well as more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

A local builder informed me there are asbestos roof tiles in existence at the property. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a harmful material. Some types were commonly found in the building materials including boards around radiators. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has excellent sound absorption properties, it may be found in artex. Technically all forms including Chrysotile are ultimately pernicious and might lead to lung cancer or scarring of the lung following prolonged exposure. If found, care should be taken not to displace it and professional advice must be taken as soon as possible.

Surveyors do not confirm the existence asbestos on a survey. However, surveyors will report on suspected asbestos during the Kemp Town survey and should recommend relevant tests.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Is clay soil an issue in Kemp Town? Can we expect the Kemp Town House Survey to mention this?

Factors from Japanese knotweed to termites can cause costs and inconvenience for a house-owner. Clay-rich soil, for example, is a potential source of a number of issues. In Kemp Town's relatively mild climate, the variations in volume which clay soil experiences will be barely noticeable, but extended dry or wet spells may well impact the soil's stability and affecting the property itself. The real impact of this could reveal itself as anything from unremarkable small cracks in the drawing room floor, to complete structural failure. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Kemp Town, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the house. If soil water levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is also important. Your surveyor may be able to offer practical suggestions as to how this can be achieved.

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about vermin in the property we plan to buy. Should we get a RICS surveyor?

Property are generally free of pests, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. 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, carpet beetle larvae, or 'woolly bears' may be recognised by distinctive round bite marks along seams of clothing. Able to survive months without food, there may initially be no obvious evidence of their presence. Remedies to bug or other pest issues can include professional cleaning and removal or excision of affected timber. If investigation does uncover a problem, consider speaking to the seller to ask that they deal with the issue prior to exchange.
