Home Buyers Survey in Lewes

HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Lewes and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same.

If the Lewes property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, you should you book a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, but it will offer comprehensive details of the Lewes property's condition and it includes advice on structural defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We want to put in an offer on a place in Lewes. Is there any brick chimney maintenance advice we should be aware of?? Is brick more susceptible to the weather?

Brick residences be affected by considerable issues, such as thermal movement. An issue of particular concern is thermal movement, caused by more extreme temperature variation, and resulting in vertical cracks. Contact D & S Brickworks Ltd for a repairs estimate at 01392 490688 or 35 Redhills Cl, Exeter, EX4 1SE.

Lewes home purchasers may need to consider that number of popular courses and methods can be found across Lewes. For instance, rowlock, which is often found at the top of a wall.

Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a flood risk in Lewes, and will the RICS surveyor search for signs of flooding, or if other properties have been affected?

A wide variety of factors can cause flooding, from inadequate drainage to tidal activity, and the value of a residence in an at-risk area may be impacted. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst. Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the house or on adjacent sites. The property surveyor will usually recommend that the home purchasers seek legal advice on any related information mentioned in the report.

Landfill site near home

What should I be concerned about if buying a property next to Old Rodmell Cement Works on Lewes and landfill sites generally

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes for example: domestic refuse. There are 1, 000's of sites affect many thousands of people in England including Lewes. Worries include heavy metals. Potential health issues for example abdominal wall problems have been associated to landfill sites .

Surveyors in Lewes will examine structural issues connected with the site. Your solicitor will carry out environmental searches of the Environmental Agency databases in addition to Lewes Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .

Building Surveys on houses

Is it the right choice to upgrade to full structural survey before acquiring a poor condition Edwardian cottage in Lewes?

Full Structural Surveys have a new title and are now named Building Surveys. We recommend that you carry out a Building Survey for the house referred to. The HomeBuyer Report goes into enough detail if buying a 60 year old or less Lewes house made out of normal building materials. You should be aware of several limitations come with any residential survey as a RICS surveyor will not be able to open up the structure of the building of survey where hatches are over 3m above ground.
