HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Chandlers Ford and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Chandlers Ford property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any major works, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it will offer comprehensive details of the Chandlers Ford property's condition in addition to an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We want to put in an offer on a place in Chandlers Ford. Is there any Sussex bond upkeep suggestions we should be aware of?? Are brick walls hard to repair?

Brick-constructed houses in Chandlers Ford demonstrate several benefits, but they can also show signs of distinct issues. This could be anything from spalling to inadequate damp-proofing. For instance, rapidly deteriorating cement mortar, caused by sulphate attack. This may require outright demolition of the wall, if discovered and should be taken very seriously. Quality Brickwork may be able to give a quote for any maintenance work. Contact them at 0161-303 2656 or 10 Maple Av, Stalybridge, SK15 1UA.

A range of techniques of brick building have been a feature of house construction in this country for 100s of years. Maintenance work may be more time-consuming and costly than you assume.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a Chandlers Ford home built in the mid 40s, but it has clay foundations. Will the Home Buyers Survey consider this?

The adverse impact clay soil can have on a home can be significant. Specific issues include consolidation, or the change in volume of soil resulting from water loss. The composition of clay soil varies greatly, with some areas being more susceptible to clay soil subsidence than others, but the effects can be very similar. The real impact of this could reveal itself as anything from unremarkable cracks along the kitchen floor, to complete structural failure. Fortunately, there are steps a home owner can take. Your surveyor should refer to maintenance options in their report, like even minor landscaping so that the ground slopes away from the property. The building foundations may need extra support in some cases. A surveyor can confirm if this is necessary, as it can be a lengthy process.

Timber damage by insect larvae

There may be pests at the Chandlers Ford home we're buying, but we are not certain. Will a RICS surveyor look into this?

Homes are generally free of pests, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can affect the health of residents and affect its value. An affected building may not always be easy to identify. As an example, carpet beetle larvae, or 'woolly bears' may be recognised by distinctive round bite marks along seams of clothing. Able to survive months without food, there may initially be no obvious evidence of their presence. Treatment for an infestation may include destruction of tainted materials. If you believe lice, or any pest, may be present, request that your property surveyor pay close attention during the survey.
