HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Littlehampton and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is essentially the same survey.

If the Littlehampton property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any works or an extension on the property, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Littlehampton property's state of repair in addition to an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

Our seller warned us that access to the roof of the structure could be time consuming to arrange - What advice would the RICS surveyor give in their report?

Property in and around Littlehampton with no other major issues can be blighted by roof maintenance problems, such as sagging beams. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from wind braces to purlins. The building surveyors could suggest that some of the faults must be dealt with immediately.

High estimates for roofing jobs (such as thatching) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases,

this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a Littlehampton roofing contractor for the job itself. Call Shoreham Roofing of 10 Tudor View/Rope Walk, Littlehampton, BN17 5DE on 01903 722744 to request a quote.

Building Surveys on houses

Is it best to get a full structural survey prior to purchasing a dilapidated period cottage in Littlehampton?

Full Structural Surveys have a new title and are now called Building Surveys. Choose the Building Survey if you are contemplating the house described. A HomeBuyer Report is all you really need for a 60 year old or less Littlehampton home built out of typical construction materials and methods. There are certain limitations exist with a property survey as a qualified surveyor cannot open up the structure of the Littlehampton house nor can he/she assess safety of gas sources.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Littlehampton, and think we saw signs of pests in the closet. How do we investigate further?

Any questions about pests affecting a Littlehampton building may not be asked by the lawyer. Regrettably, vermin can seriously reduce the value of a property and carry serious health risks. 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, cluster, or swarming flies, are often found in lofts and can be a serious, seasonal annoyance if not treated. Treatment for bug or other pest issues may include traps. If you strongly suspect an issue with mice, or any pest, speak to your home surveyor
