HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Pevensey Bay and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Pevensey Bay property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out significant alterations, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Pevensey Bay property's state of repair in addition to an opinion on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Property Surveyor look for on a stucco Victorian house in Pevensey Bay that we intend to purchase.

Stucco (sometimes called pargetting) is in fact a smooth and flat render. Usually it is applied to brick hardens to form a smooth surface that is sometimes scored to resemble stone. The effect is very beautiful and is/was common on some Regency properties. Stucco is often problematic and Pevensey Bay Building Surveys can discover issues for example, horizontal pattern like cracking that describes the underlying mortar joints. Other potential problems may result from the heavy loads such as cracking under stone slab roofs. Resolving problems can be dear as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are getting harder to find.

Stone block wall damage

I am intending to put an offer in on a property in Pevensey Bay partially constructed Beer stone. What should we look in to? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

There are numerous of defects and issues associated with stone-built property, and the defects impacting a type of stone will vary according to its properties.

Stone walls are either regular (cut) or irregular in structure, each of which will provoke particular concerns. In addition, lime mortar may feature in the building's construction. A survey will include a range of suggestions or requirements for maintenance, such as replacing missing or badly worn stones.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The home I am purchasing is built on clay soil. Will my Pevensey Bay HomeBuyer Report look into this, and will the Surveyor advise on upkeep?

If not monitored appropriately, the make up of the soil surrounding a house's foundations can create difficulties. Subsidence is one obvious concern, but there are others, including shrinking of clay soil. The water content of clay soils determines volume, pushing upward, or pulling downward as the weather changes. This may result in some minor visible defects.. Signs like sticking doors can be an early warning, suggesting severe underlying structural deficiencies. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Pevensey Bay, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the house. If soil moisture levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is essential. Subsidence and heave can be caused by a general increase or decrease in moisture, but isolated patches of wet and dry can just as easily warp foundations, putting them under even greater pressure.
