About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Copthorne

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Copthorne and of the 3, which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same survey.

If the Copthorne property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it does give a thorough analysis of the Copthorne property's general condition and it includes advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a flood risk in Copthorne, and will the residential surveyor check for indications of water damage?

A wide variety of factors can cause flooding, from inadequate drainage to tidal activity, and the value of a property can decrease if in an exposed area, even if it has never flooded. The Environment Agency maintain a flood alert service, with regular updated risk assessments. Flood water can enter a property through several routes, including poorly installed doors.

Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. raised door thresholds. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a home survey if the home surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the property is at risk.

Conservation area

Are there any potential pitfalls we would be advised to check out if planning to buy a house in Copthorne inside a conservation area?

There are thousands official conservation areas in the UK that are designated and monitored by local authorities. Surveyors in Copthorne need to have sufficient knowledge of local factors and any connection they have with the property and its value. The price of property tends to be more than prices outside the area as a result of the areas resisting change. However many of them are falling into have been neglected and are in a state for example - unauthorised alterations to the fronts, roofs and chimneys of buildings

RICS surveyors will note whether the location looks to be is designated and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Homebuyer Report will recommend additional enquiries are raised during the conveyancing process. Out of keeping modifications to the building will also be commented on but these are really more a investigated by the solicitor.
