HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Worthing and which is cheaper?

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

If the Worthing property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey instead. This survey is less cheap however it does offer a thorough analysis of the Worthing property's general condition in addition to advice on structural defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The Flemish bond walls on this home in Worthing is in poor condition. What are the possible consequences?

Brick-constructed residences in Worthing feature several advantages over structures built with irregular stone, but they can also experience diverse problems. These can include erosion or spalling. The house surveyor can investigate these as part of their report. One defect surveyors commonly report on brick buildings is sulphate attack. This results if a cement mortared-wall suffers a prolonged period of damp. It is effectively impossible to treat. For more information, contact a local builder, DMS Building Services (Wxm) Ltd of 36 Osborne St, Rhosllanerchrugog, Wrexham, LL14 2HU on 01978 842392.

For buyers interested in less common uses of brick, consider ornate Della Robbia bond paving. Consider renegotiating the price of the Worthing property, based on the results of your survey. Works to remedy even some superficial brick wall defects can be both expensive and disruptive.

Damage resulting from flooding

When purchasing in Worthing, should we be concerned about a flood risk, and will the chartered surveyor search for water damage?

Last year was the second wettest year on record (source: Evening Standard), and the value of a property can decrease if in an exposed area, even if it has never flooded. It is strongly recommended that prevention methods are considered, before flooding occurs, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures.

Familiarity with characteristics of the local area likely to affect property in Worthing enables the surveyor to surmise flooding may be a risk, even if the property has not itself flooded before. Also included on Environment Agency's flood warning are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.

Shocking Electrics

When we saw the building we want to buy, it appeared that there is evidence of an overload of the fuses - will a Homebuyer Report in Worthing report on the general state of the electrical system?

When carrying out a Home Survey in Worthing a RICS surveyor will usually make a note on the overall electrical system if it is suspected that they are in an unsafe condition.

This should include a visual check (i.e. no removal of fittings) of open or exposed areas of the wiring in addition to issues like verifying the category of any electrical fittings in shower rooms or checking the condition of a sample of light fittings. Reporting on any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical installations carried out by a suitably qualified electrician will form part of the survey.

The IEE advise that a Periodic Inspection be conducted every 10 years (5 if letting).
