HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Lewes and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Lewes property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, you should you book a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, but it will offer comprehensive details of the Lewes property's condition and it includes advice on structural defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a flood risk in Lewes, and will the RICS surveyor search for signs of flooding, or if other properties have been affected?

A wide variety of factors can cause flooding, from inadequate drainage to tidal activity, and the value of a residence in an at-risk area may be impacted. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst. Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the house or on adjacent sites. The property surveyor will usually recommend that the home purchasers seek legal advice on any related information mentioned in the report.

Damaged Render

What sort of thing will the RICS Surveyor be focused on, on a smooth stucco regency home in Lewes that I intend to purchase.

Stucco is really just a sort of flat finish render. Typically it is layered over brick hardens to form a flat surface, often then trowled to give the appearance of stone blocks. The finish is highly appealing and is found on Victorian houses. Stucco is often prone to defect and Surveyors in Lewes sometimes report issues like trapped moisture leading to the surface falling away.

Another example of problems could include attack from sulphates absorbed from brickwork. Re-covering problems may be difficult and costly as the skills are becoming harder to find.
