About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Pitsea

HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Pitsea and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Pitsea property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it does give you comprehensive details of the Pitsea property's state of repair as well as including an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

I am purchasing a shabby Victorian end of terrace property in Pitsea - is it necessary to upgrade to a full structural survey?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed as a Building Survey. You should get the Building Survey for the house you are contemplating. A HomeBuyer Report is detailed enough for a mid 20th century of later Pitsea home assembled from conventional building materials.

There are certain caveats are integral with any survey insofar as a Pitsea surveyor is not able to open up the structure of the property nor can he/she inspect any part that could risk personal injury.

Conservation area

Are there any problems I would need to check out when intending to buy a home in Pitsea in conservation area ?

There are over 9, 000 of conservation areas throughout the country which are overseen by local authorities.

A Building Surveyors need to possess sufficient knowledge of local factors and any relation may have on the building. Property Prices is, more often than not, higher than non conservation area equivalents due to the areas being in their original state.

RICS surveyors are expected advise you if the property could be classified as such and Section I of your Pitsea Homebuyer Report will advise additional due diligence and enquiries are raised by your solicitor. Unapproved changes to the property will also be noted in the survey, however these should be investigated by your legal adviser.

Damage resulting from flooding

Would our RICS surveyor consider indications of flooding damage, or if neighbour's houses have been affected?

The Law Society estimate that 2.2m houses are exposed to flooding damage, and insurance premiums. can be significantly affected for houses in flood-risk areas. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes. In addition, the Building Survey may offer advice to limit damage in the event of flooding.Less expensive preventative measures include the installation of air brick covers. The house surveyor may ask the property owner or occupier about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.
