HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Saltdean and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is effectively the same survey.

If the Saltdean property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension on the Saltdean property, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, but it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Saltdean property's state of repair as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is wet weather an issue in Saltdean? Will the HomeBuyer Report give details on this? We're concerned about replacement costs.

Climate change is regularly in the news. However the impact wet weather can have on a structure is usually overlooked by buyers. If you have investigated the house you are buying in warm weather, issues may have been hidden, but you may wish to ask your surveyor for more detail. Whether buying in Saltdean or elsewhere, difficult rainwater goods does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to resolve.However, the damage caused, where disregarded, will be expense to remedy and resulting damp and mould could become a health risk.

Asbestos roof tiles

I suspect said there is a possibility of a white asbestos toilet cistern at the property. Which types of asbestos are a concern and can it be handled easily?

Asbestos is a carcinogenic fibrous material of several naturally occurring materials. Some types were commonly found in the building materials for example asbestos blocks. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good fire retarding qualities and it may be found in asbestos packing in stud walls for example.

All forms are ultimately pernicious and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure.

If discovered, one must be careful not to disturb it and professional advice should be sought ASAP. Never attempt to handle it yourself. Surveyors cannot test for asbestos during a Saltdean building survey. Your surveyor will mention suspected asbestos and should suggest experts are consulted.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a Saltdean home built in the mid 40s, but it has clay foundations. Will your Saltdean Building Survey look into this? Does the chartered surveyor give maintenance advice?

Factors from dry rot to heavy rainfall can cause problems for a property-owner. Clay-rich soil, for example, is a potential source of numerous issues. Subsidence is a major concern, but there are others, including sub-soil shrinkage. Evidence of clay soil-related problems can sometimes be found throughout a structure. Some clay soils are prone to creep, if the top soil and property lie on a slope. Either as a result of erosion or extreme weather, in rare situations, the soil layer can shift without warning, as a landslide, resulting in the structural failure and collapse of the whole building! Fortunately, there are steps a home owner can take. Your surveyor should refer to maintenance options in their report, like ensuring that the ground level declines away from the house. If soil water levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is also important. Your surveyor may be able to offer practical suggestions as to how this can be achieved.
