Home Buyers Survey in West Sussex

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in West Sussex and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the West Sussex property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any an extension, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This option is less cheap but it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the West Sussex property's general condition as well as including advice on defects and maintenance options .

House Prices

What is the right ball park price to be buying a house in West Sussex for and what considerations will a local surveyor take into account when calculating house prices in West Sussex ?

There is a vast array of things that might affect the price of property like the state of repair of the property or the height of ceilings. .

In order for home buyers to get a formal house valuation is with a Homebuyer Report (or Property Valuation Report) which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as an inclusive part.

Shocking Electrics

When I was shown the building I am intending to move into, the agent said that there could be corrosion of the wiring; will a West Sussex Homebuyer Report go into detail on the wiring and fusebox?

During a West Sussex Home Survey the surveyor should comment on the state of the electrics if it is clear that the electrics are in an unsafe state. This should include a by sight inspection (without removing any fittings) of exposed sections of the wiring as well as things like checking the type of any electrical fittings in bathrooms or checking the state of a representative sample of light fittings.

Verifying the existence of any evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical connections handled by an electrician should form part of the survey.

The IEE suggest a Periodic Inspection Report (PIR) be conducted every ten years (or every 5 if renting out).
