Home Buyers Survey in Uckfield

HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same.

If the Uckfield property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it does provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Uckfield property's state of repair as well as including more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact can rain have on a property, and does our RICS surveyor in Uckfield mention it? Where there are issues, what should we do?

As a frequent surveyor of homes in the region, I find it strange that this issue is rarely paid due attention by purchasers. Signs that rainwater goods are blocked include rotten roofing elements. If you suspect a problem, consider asking the surveyor for more information.

Fortunately, drainage problems are generally easy to fix if dealt with quickly. However, if the drains are not cleared out regularly, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair. In the worst case scenario, deterioration of a building's foundations can become fatal to its structural integrity, risking collapse.

House Prices

We are hoping to be purchasing a flat in TN22 for around £136, 654. What different issues will your surveyor take into account when valuing house prices in Uckfield on a survey ?

There are a huge number of issues that might affect property values for instance the square footage or the local crime statistics. It often helps to set against the prices of flat achieved in the area for similar properties. The mean flat price recorded at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £145, 154, which is £8, 500 more than the selling price (£293, 571 was the blended house/flat average). 26, Flat 3, Newtown, Uckfield, Wealden, East Sussex, TN22 5DD a leasehold flat recently sold for £161, 500 .

The most reliable way for home buyers to get a formal house valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation by default. A surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme.

A RICS surveyor will attend the site as well as allowing for the myriad of variables that have a bearing on the value of property.

Damaged Render

What will a RICS Surveyor be focused on, on a stucco Victorian house in Uckfield.

Stucco is smooth type of render. Typically stucco is applied to underlying brick that dries to a smooth flat finish. The effect is very appealing and is often found on Victorian and Regency buildings. It is similar to plaster in its nature. It can contain lime in it in addition to plant fibres to help prevent cracks. Stucco is often prone to defect and Surveyors in Uckfield can show defects for instance trapped moisture resulting in damp problems.

Another example of problems associated with stucco may include when the application has been taken down to ground level bypassing the DPC or Damp Proof Course. Fixing problems may be difficult as the skills are becoming more difficult to find.

Asbestos roof tiles

The vendor has mentioned there is a danger of asbestos lagging situated in the maisonette. What is asbestos and will this be a hazard?

Asbestos is a dangerous silicate material. Some types were commonly found in the building materials including duct connectors. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has characteristic resistance to electrical damage properties, it may be found in insulating board. Technically all forms are pernicious and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Contrary to common perception, inhaling a one fibre is not deadly.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered however, never to move it and professional advice should be sought as soon as possible. Removing it asbestos can be expensive must always be conducted by experts. Surveyors cannot test for asbestos on a survey. However, surveyors will mention the risk of asbestos and should advise accordingly.
