Home Buyers Survey in West Wittering

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in West Wittering and which would be cheaper?

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

If the West Wittering property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works on the property, you should you commission a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give comprehensive details of the West Wittering property's state of repair as well as an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Do I need to check rainwater goods? Also, if there is a problem, will they be disruptive to fix?

The impact of climate change is widely reported, yet the effect which damp weather has on buildings in West Wittering is ignored. For example, leaves or other vegetation causing a blockage strongly suggest that the drainage are damaged. If you have suspicions, consider asking the surveyor for more information.

Whether buying in West Wittering or elsewhere, difficult drainage does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to resolve, if caught early. However, if the drains are not maintained, 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.

Conservation area

Will there be any potential pitfalls I should be conscious of when buying a flat in West Wittering inside a conservation area?

There are 9, 300 of designated conservation areas throughout England and Wales, responsibility for which lies with local councils.

A Building Surveyors must possess knowledge of local considerations and the bearing may have with the building and its value. The price of property is typically significantly higher due to conservation areas retaining original features. However many conservation areas have been neglected and are in a state for example - increasing amounts of scruffy green spaces

Surveyors are trained to advise you whether the building looks like it may be in a conservation area and Section I of your West Wittering Homebuyer Report will advise further investigations are carried out by your legal adviser. Out of keeping adjustments that do not have Local Authority approval should be advised but these are really more a concern for your legal representative.

Timber damage by insect larvae

My husband spotted signs of bugs in the lounge - Is a HomeBuyer Report advisable?

West Wittering homes are generally free of pests, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. This problem should be taken seriously. It may not be obvious that a house is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. As an example, dust mites make they habitation in furnishings and bedding, and are a common source of allergies. Remedies to pest problems can include use of poison. If you strongly suspect an issue with dust mites, or any pest, speak to your West Wittering surveyor
