Need a Home Buyers Survey? Which one should you opt for?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Lindfield

    A RICS Homebuyer Report should be chosen when purchasing a home made of standard materials i.e. tile & brick, not dilapidated and build after 1900.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Lindfield

    A Building Survey (often referred to as a Full Structural Survey in Lindfield) will also be carried out by a RICS chartered surveyor and is more thorough. Opt for this for non standard e.g. thatched houses.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Lindfield

    This is an independent valuation of the property. It is often chosen by mortgage free purchasers or anyone requiring a formal valuation e.g. a dispute.

HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Lindfield and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is essentially the same.

If the Lindfield property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This option is less cheap however it does give an in-depth analysis of the Lindfield property's condition and it includes advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a surveyor inquire into flooding damage?

A wide variety of factors can cause flood damage, from inadequate drainage to tidal activity. Both buyers and home owners in areas exposed to flooding are right to be worried.

Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the Lindfield property in question is in danger, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures. Details relating to signs of flooding may be reported in Section J of the HomeBuyer Report. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the current owner, but this information may not be accurate.

The Environment Agency have updated the status for the Scrase Bridge Stream at Lindfield including the West Common Stream, near Lindfield, to 'No warnings'.

Timber damage by insect larvae

There may be pests at the property we're buying, but we are not certain - What can we do?

Pests like moths may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Lindfield. When purchasing a house, this matter should be borne in mind. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months. As an example, small tunnels in wooded beams may indicate the presence of house longhorn beetles. Remedies to vermin can include insecticides. If you believe moths, or any pest, may be present, request that your property surveyor pay close attention during the survey.

Building Surveys on houses

I don't understand the reason to opt for a full structural survey if buying a abandoned mid terrace house near Lindfield instead of a HomeBuyer Report?

Conventionally, and incorrectly, described as a Full Structural Survey by many, it is no longer available and has been replaced by RICS and the right term is now the Building Survey. Go for a Building Survey for the property you mention. A HomeBuyer Report has enough detail if buying a post fifties unmodified Lindfield home assembled from normal building materials i.e. brick/tile.

There are several provisos exist with any survey as a local Lindfield surveyor cannot open up the structure of the property nor can he/she inspect any part that could risk personal injury.
