Home Buyers Survey in Winchelsea

HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Winchelsea and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Winchelsea property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Winchelsea property's general condition and it includes information on defects and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

My partner spotted signs of bugs in the attic - How do we investigate further?

Questions regarding the infestation of a Winchelsea building may not be raised during the conveyancing. When purchasing a building, this matter should be borne in mind. Evidence may not be easy to find. As an example, a moth infestation may not be found for months after purchase, and even if treated, may never be fully eradicated. Remedies to a serious infestation can include insecticides and destruction of tainted materials. The RICS surveyor may include notes on any signs of vermin or other pests in their report. It is, however, advisable that specific worries you may have be raised ASAP.

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a HomeBuyer Report check for signs of flood damage?

Flooding has become a major issue, not least because last year was the second wettest on record. Both home buyers and home owners in areas at a high risk of flooding are right to be worried. It is strongly recommended that prevention methods are considered, before any water damage happens. Flood water can enter a home in Winchelsea through several routes, including poorly installed doors.

Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. lime-based plaster. The property surveyor may ask the vendor or agent about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.
