HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Petworth and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same.

If the Petworth property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap however it does give an in-depth analysis of the Petworth property's general condition in addition to information on defects and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Is it best to go for a full structural survey prior to investing in a defective sixties cottage in Petworth?

Full Structural Surveys are now known as Building Surveys. Our advice would be to carry out the Building Survey for the house you are contemplating.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing an older farmstead in Petworth. Will the age of the building be an issue?

Vernacular, or traditional, architecture can concern buyers. Properties employing traditional methods can be a chore to maintain. You should bear in mind that specialist knowledge may be needed. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of , for example, a Grade II listed house. If you have doubts, speak to your surveyor for more information.

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a risk of flooding in Petworth, and can a Petworth residential surveyor investigate signs of water damage?

Unfortunately, distance from water or height above sea level is no guarantee that a property will be secure against flooding damage, and it is not clear that reasonably-priced flooding insurance will be available in years to come. It is strongly recommended that prevention methods are considered, before water damage ruins both the walls and floors, and contents. In addition, the survey report may offer advice to limit damage in the event of flooding.Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the home in Petworth or on adjacent sites. The RICS surveyor may ask the seller if the home in Petworth has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.
