HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Pevensey and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Pevensey property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Pevensey property's general condition in addition to an opinion on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

I'm confused - which surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate and what does it include?

A Homebuyer Report in Pevensey will include a property valuation and also a "reinstatement cost". To fully consider the correct valuation the surveyor will take into account in depth understanding of the Pevensey market and other considerations about the property e.g. state of repair Your Pevensey surveyor will also consider construction methods and make certain other assumptions like the property is connected to mains services such as gas.

A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee by request. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The valuation is also on the basis

that there aren't any major legal problems for example the tenure being as indicated (e.g leasehold). Such concerns will be clarified by your solicitor.

Additional local Pevensey area assumptions, for example the access roads not being in private control, are made in addition to any local environmental concerns like railways, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a Pevensey house built in the mid 40s, but it has clay foundations. Will a Pevensey House Survey look into this?

Clay soil-related issues can work slowly over many years, or can arise without warning after a bout of extreme weather or flooding, with shrinking of clay soil and swelling of the soil being relatively common. The consequences may take years to be noticed, or could be felt suddenly. For example, small cracks in the bathroom ceiling may be benign, or a clue prompting a more thorough investigation. A Pevensey surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. The building foundations may need extra support in some cases. A surveyor can confirm if this is necessary, as it can be a lengthy process.

Timber damage by insect larvae

My wife spotted signs of pests in the hallway. Will the Home Buyers Survey investigate this?

Homes are generally free of infestations, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. This matter should be taken seriously. It may not be obvious that a property is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked, silverfish are common in damp kitchens and bathrooms, but only appear at night, and can therefore be difficult to spot. Remedies to pests can include removal or excision of affected timber.
