Home Buyers Survey in Battle

HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Battle and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Battle property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Battle property's state of repair as well as including information on defects as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Battle, what suggestions can a Battle property surveyor make for homes with brick? Does brick decay faster in Battle weather?

Brick-built houses do benefit from many advantages, but they will also be affected by diverse problems, from moisture damage to sulphate expansion. Your surveyor in Battle can investigate these as part of their report.

A defect often found is extensive damp where water has been drawn in through or between poorly fitted brickwork. Contact Rosedale Brickwork Contractors for a repairs estimate at 01344 311475 or 8 Milbanke Court/Milbanke Way, Bracknell, RG12 1RP.

A range of techniques of brick building have been used for centuries. Maintenance work may be more time-consuming and costly than you assume.

Traditionally built property

I am buying a property. What impact will the house's construction have on repairs?

The age of a structure can be a cause of concern for would-be buyers. Buildings built with traditional methods can be difficult to upkeep. You should consider that expert knowledge may be needed. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of Battle listed buildings. If you have doubts, speak to your surveyor for further advice.

Other external areas of the property

For a HomeBuyer Report on a Battle house what could a an amber light rating mean for 'E9 - Other' ?

A fairly common example may be rusted conservatory walls or columns. The part of the HomeBuyer Report mentions other aspects that do not fit elsewhere in Section E. Contact your surveyor if you require more information. The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly, with a minimum of technical jargon. The surveyor uses a scale between 1 and 3 to show how concerning each aspect of the report is. Issues requiring some attention are labelled condition rating 2. This may not be urgent, however. Not inspected' is used to indicate those subsections of Section E which do not apply to the Battle property. The structured format for the HomeBuyer Report is intended to produce a useful and comprehensive survey for any property purchasers. As a result, some sections are omitted where they do not apply to the surveyed property.

Gas flame

Will a qualified surveyor go into detail on the safety of the gas appliances?

A chartered surveyor will visually check the accessible parts of the system. This will include the meter location/position at the property, in addition to gas connected fixtures for example - fireplaces. The gas fittings however, won't be detached. Of course, gas can be hazardous, should you have any worries relating to gas installations, call a gas engineer immediately.

The 1998 Gas Safety Regulations stipulate landlords have to conduct appliance and installation inspections every 12 months and punishments for failure to comply include heavy fines or imprisonment .

Conservation area

Are there any concerns I would be advised to consider when intending to buy a period property in Battle in the vicinity of a conservation area?

There are nearly 10, 000 official conservation areas throughout the country, responsibility for which lies with the local council.

A Building Surveyors need to possess sufficient knowledge of relevant local area factors and any effect they have with the home. Values is, more often than not, greater as a result of them retaining their original character. However many conservation areas have been neglected and are in a poor state for example - unauthorised alterations to the fronts, roofs and chimneys of buildings

Surveyors will note if the planned purchase could be is so classified and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Battle Homebuyer Report will advise suitable questions are conducted by the solicitor or conveyancer. Unsympathetic developments to the property may be noted, however these should be investigated by your lawyer.
