HomeBuyer Survey East Sussex
Southdown Surveyors are a practice of qualified surveyors covering the whole of East Sussex. We offer a variety of detailed reports and surveys for a range of clients. We have been established since 2006, and in our many years of service we have gained a fantastic reputation for providing detailed reports to suit your individual needs. We will provide you with all of the information you need regarding your impending property purchase.
A HomeBuyer Survey is carried out prior to the purchase of a property. It is instructed by you and delivered to you for your personal use. This report is recommended for properties of standard condition, a reasonable size and condition. They are designed by RICS as an 'economy' report option. It assesses the overall condition of the property, identifying any urgent problems or defects which can affect its value. We advise checking this RICS document to determine which level of report best suits you.
Within your HomeBuyer report, we can include a market valuation and a rebuild cost assessment (for insurance purposes). If the property purchase is being funded with a mortgage, your lender will undertake a basic 'valuation'. This does not specifically address the condition of the property. It is carried out for the lender's benefit and not the purchasers. A HomeBuyer survey will provide you with all of the information you need to make a well-informed decision regarding your property price and if you would like to re-negotiate with the seller. This can save you time, money and stress.
We offer various survey levels:
Survey Level Two: RICS HomeBuyer Report (HBR)
This survey is for conventional properties which are in reasonable condition. It provides detailed information from a survey with the option of a valuation.
Survey Level Three: RICS Building Survey
This is a comprehensive survey suitable for larger or older properties, or if you are planning major works. This provides an in-depth insight into the property's condition and will advise on repairs, defects and maintenance.
