HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Polegate and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

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

If you intend to do any major works, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey instead. This option is less cheap but it will offer a thorough analysis of the Polegate property's general condition as well as including information on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

A local builder informed me there are asbestos roof tiles in existence at the property. Why would there be asbestos?

Asbestos is a carcinogenic fibrous material. Some types were commonly found in the building materials such as garage roofs. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has a range of useful characteristic resistance to chemical damage properties, it may be found in shed roofs. Technically all forms are carcinogenic and may lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure.

Should you find asbestos, you should be careful however, on no account to break asbestos and professional advice should be sought urgently. You should not try to get rid of it yourself.

Surveyors do not tell you whether there is asbestos on a Polegate home survey. Surveyors will report on potential asbestos and will recommend relevant tests.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a Building survey in Polegate include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes and how is it calculated?

The Homebuyer Report contains a (registered valuer) surveyor valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as a standard part of the survey. To be able to determine the property's value your surveyor will take into account local property market knowledge and other factors about the property e.g. general condition Your Polegate surveyor will also consider style of architecture and will use other assumptions, for example there being no serious defects. Surveyors disregard things like furnishings. The surveyor also assumes that there is an absence of any impossible to rectify legal issues for example proper access over pathways. These will be investigated by your solicitor or licensed conveyancer. during the legal process.

Additional local Polegate area assumptions, for example connection to sewers, are made as well as any significant environmental concerns like brine mining activity, also being considered.

A Building Survey won't include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee by request. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Damage resulting from flooding

We are purchasing a ground floor flat in Polegate, does the property surveyor look for indications of water damage?

Recent conflict between insurers has the government has caused a great deal of uncertainty. If you are planning to buy in a flood-affected area, a home survey will inform your decision. The Environment Agency maintain a flood risk alert service, with regular updated risk assessments, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst. Less expensive preventative measures include the installation of air brick covers. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the estate agent, but this information may not be accurate.
