HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Southwick and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Southwick property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any substantial modifications on the Southwick property, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it will give comprehensive details of the Southwick property's condition and it includes an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The mortgage valuation surveyor informed me there is a concern of asbestos boilers present in property. What is asbestos and how is it remedied?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous material. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) were commonly found in the building materials for example wall panelling. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has a range of useful characteristic resistance to chemical damage qualities and it may be found in toilet cistern.

All forms are ultimately hazardous and may lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Finding asbestos does not necessarily pose a risk to health.

Should you find asbestos, you should be careful on no account to displace asbestos and expert advice should be sought ASAP. Never try to handle it yourself. Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos on a Southwick home survey. Surveyors will mention the risk of asbestos and will advise accordingly.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Which Southwick Surveys include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of professional fees)

A Homebuyer Report on a Southwick property will contain an independent valuation and also a reinstatement cost. When calculating the valuation the surveyor will refer to local property market knowledge and other considerations about the property for instance: style of architecture The RICS surveyor will also consider construction methods and will make certain other assumptions e.g. there are no dangerous materials.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. RICS valuations assume that there are no expensive legal problems e.g. no troublesome covenants. Such concerns will be unravelled by your legal representative.

Additional local Southwick area assumptions like the access roads not being in private control, are made in addition to local environmental concerns like mining activity, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The home we plan to purchase is built on clay soil. Does a Southwick Home Survey discuss soil composition the report, and will the Surveyor advise on upkeep?

Whether a home was built in 1707 or 2007, factors as varied as termites or dry rot can create inconvenience for an owner. Foundations dug into clay-rich soil, for example, can result in several issues. Subsidence is a major concern, but there are others, including sub-soil shrinkage. Given the moisture content does have such a great affect of clay-rich soil, owners should be aware that defects can arise if environmental conditions change. .

If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Southwick home's foundations, forcing them inward. A Southwick surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly.
