Home Buyers Survey in Horsham

HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Horsham and which is cheaper?

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

If the Horsham property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make major works on the property, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Horsham property's state of repair as well as including an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Do I need to spend a bit more on full structural survey prior to investing in a defective forties house in Horsham?

Structural surveys are now called Building Surveys. Commission the Building Survey for this house. A HomeBuyer Report is detailed enough if buying a mid 20th century of later unmodified Horsham home assembled from typical building materials.

Roof defects identified during a survey

I am going to put in an offer in on a building in Horsham. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. What does the home surveyor investigate during the survey?

Horsham residences in otherwise fine condition can be blighted by difficulties with the roof, for example, cracked and loose slates or tiles. From sheeting to parapet walls, all aspects of the roof should be reported on. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in Horsham, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the surveyors in Horsham will look for a range of signs, including a poor asphalt covering.

High estimates for roofing jobs (such as a complete replacement) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases, this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.

However, buyers should endeavour to compare a number of quotes to find the best deal. Contact Asphaltic of 5 Nightingale Rd, Horsham, RH12 2NW on 01403 270640 to request an estimate.

Conservation area

Will there be any issues we would need to look out for if purchasing an extended house in Horsham near Greatham conservation area, particularly with regards to house prices?

Greatham is in a conservation area and has been classed as very bad by English Heritage, with medium vulnerability and deteriorating. For detailed information visit their website or contact the conservation area administrator - Catherine Jeater on 01403 215528. There are over 9, 000 of designated conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are governed by local authorities. Greatham is administered by Horsham District Council at Park North, North Street, Horsham, West Sussex, RH12 1RL - Call 01403 215 100. Horsham surveyors are required by RICS to possess local knowledge of local considerations and the effect may have with the home. House prices tends to be higher than non conservation area equivalents which is down to them resisting change.

RICS surveyors are trained to advise whether the property might be so designated and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Horsham Homebuyer Report will advise further enquiries are raised by the conveyancing solicitor. Out of keeping modifications that do not have Local Authority approval may also be advised but these are really more a investigated by the solicitor. Nicola Phillips Solicitors are a local firm situated at 1 Market Square, Horsham, West Sussex, RH12 1EU and may be prepared help you with further information. Tel: 01403 258965
