HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Seaford and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same survey.

If the Seaford property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any alterations, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Seaford property's state of repair as well as including advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

There are thousands of designated conservation areas in England and Wales which are governed by the local authority.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We are buying in Seaford and are looking for a home built with rat-trap bond walls. What advice would the surveyor give? Does the age of the property matter?

Brick converted property in Seaford will indicate both minor and serious issues, including inadequate damp-proofing and defective mortar. One particularly serious issue is sulphate attack. This results if a cement mortared-wall suffers a prolonged period of damp. It is effectively impossible to treat. Nick Heap Brickwork Services Ltd may be able to give an estimate for any necessary upkeep. Contact them at Sanserra House/Mayfield Rd, Bournemouth, BH9 1TF or 07966 521513.

For instance, English bond or Scottish bond are both used in Seaford converted property, but it is strongly advised that professional advice be sought prior to attempting repairs.
