HomeBuyer Reports in Hailsham
Welcome to Southdown Surveyors! We are a local practice of qualified surveyors offering detailed reports and surveys for customers across Hailsham and East Sussex. We were established in 2006, and since then we have gained a wide customer base and have built a truster reputation. Our reports are tailored to suit your needs and provide all of the information you need to make an informed decision regarding your prospective property purchase.
One of the many reports we offer is the RICS HomeBuyer Report which is instructed by you and delivered to you for your personal use. The format of the report is perfect for properties of standard construction, reasonable size and condition. They are designed by RICS to be an 'economy' report, which assesses the overall condition of your property, identifying any immediate and/or urgent problems or defects observed by the surveyor which may affect its value. The main differences in the levels of the reports are in this document by RICS.
Within some of the levels of the HomeBuyer reports there is the option to include a market valuation and a rebuild cost assessment (for your insurance purposes). Usually, if your property purchase is being funded by a mortgage, your lender will instigate the undertaking of a 'valuation'. This is a basic report which does not specifically address the condition of the property. Ultimately, it is carried out for the lender's benefit and not you as the purchaser. A HomeBuyer Report will give you the information you need to make an informed decision as to whether you would like to re-negotiate the purchase price of the property and/or the acquisition at all which can save you time, money and stress!
What are the different survey levels?
Survey Level Two: RICS HomeBuyer Report (HBR)
This report is suitable for conventional properties in reasonable condition. It provides detailed information in the form of a survey (+ a valuation if required).
Survey Level Three: RICS Building Survey
Essential survey for larger or older properties or if you are planning major works. This is a comprehensive report which provides you with an in-depth analysis of the property's condition and advice on defects, repairs and maintenance options.
