Home Buyers Survey in Kemp Town

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Kemp Town and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

If the Kemp Town property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension on the property, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap but it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Kemp Town property's condition as well as more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does the surveyor go into detail on the safety of the gas appliances?

A local surveyor will locate and visually examine the easily accessible parts of the system. This will mean gas related areas such as gas heaters where relevant, as well as gas connected gas installations in the house for example - prefabricated flues. However, the Kemp Town surveyor won't remove the external fittings or housings and won't conduct any tests on the system or appliances. Needless to say, gas can be fatal, should there be any concerns about gas fittings, call a gas safe engineer.

House Prices

There is a detached house in BN2 in Kemp Town priced at £297, 305. What things does the surveyor take into account when valuing house prices in Kemp Town ?

There are many factors that can add to or subtract from house prices like plumbing problems or defects in the lease. It often helps to set against house values achieved in the nearby area for comparable properties.

The average house price completed in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £295, 205, which is £2, 100 less than the price you are intending to pay. The average factoring in houses and flats was £258, 623. 11, Ansty Close, Brighton, Brighton And Hove, Brighton And Hove, BN2 5GL a detached home sold for £200, 000 .

The most reliable way for you to get a formal home valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report as standard.

Stone block wall damage

I am purchasing a property and the vendor has suggested that it has been partially constructed with Doulting stone. Which related issues should we consider?

Buyers of a listed building should consider that any repairs are in keeping with the methods and materials used in the original construction. The properties of a stone can affect wear as much as upkeep or construction. Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to Kemp Town houses, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used for the framing of windows or doors. Different stone types will also decay a different rates based on environmental conditions.

For example, limestones such as Bath stone or Kentish Rag will deteriorate when exposed to the elements.

Home Buyers Surveys will usually offer guidance on these matters. An example would be removal of invasive plants, such as ivy.
