HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Newhaven and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same.

If the Newhaven property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any substantial modifications, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will offer a thorough analysis of the Newhaven property's state of repair in addition to an opinion on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Is it the right choice to choose a full structural survey before investing in a modified period house near Newhaven?

Full Structural Surveys was recently renamed as Building Surveys. The HomeBuyer Report is enough for a mid century or later Newhaven property assembled from normal building materials. The Building Survey is definitely the suitable survey for the property mentioned. Subsequent to a thorough site survey of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings, a non prescribed format of report will be delivered to the purchaser detailing any crucial professional advice in relation to the condition of the property.

There are certain limitations with any residential survey insofar as a surveyor is not able to force or open up the fabric of the Newhaven house e.g. lifting up fitted carpets.

Landfill site near home

What should we be aware of when buying a flat close to a rubbish landfill

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes including non-hazardous waste disposal. Of course nobody wants to live near one (80% of people live near one). Risks might include chemicals like dioxins. Potential health concerns like birth defects have been linked to landfill sites .

Building Surveys and valuations in Newhaven will consider structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your conveyancer will carry out environmental searches of the Environmental Agency data sets as well as Lewes Local Authority and address any concerns you may have .

Damage resulting from flooding

We understand this house is located near a river. Is there a major flood risk? Would our home surveyor check indications of flood damage?

Soil-clogged drainage, rain and overflowing steams could all cause major water damage caused by flooding. If you are planning to buy in a flood-affected area, a HomeBuyer Report will inform your decision.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst. Details relating to signs of flooding may be reported in Section J of the HomeBuyer Report. The surveyor may ask the estate agent if the Newhaven home has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.
