Which Home Buyers Survey should you select?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Eastleigh and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same.

If the Eastleigh property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works on the property, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will offer a thorough analysis of the Eastleigh property's state of repair as well as information on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are purchasing a home in Eastleigh and found a gap below the skirting board in the sitting room, could this be evidence of subsidence? What can be done to fix subsidence if it is identified?

Subsidence is the movement of the foundations of a home which compromises its structural integrity. Most homes experience some minor cracking. Generally, a builder will return to a new home after some months in order to repair settlement damage.

In areas where clay soil is common, a long period of dry weather will cause the moisture level of the soil to fall. This dries out and shrinks the clay, straining the foundations of the home and which causes subsidence. In severe weather conditions, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence, but this is not generally an issue in the UK.

Finding the cause of any subsidence is key. It has been estimated that around 70 per cent of cases of subsidence are caused by tree roots taking the moisture out of the soil. If the load-bearing parts of the property have been damaged, these may be repaired with steel rods, fixed into place with cement to restore the structural integrity of the building.

Your surveyor may suggest that you talk to an arborist to find out the best cause of action if trees or other plant life is the suspected cause.

Asbestos roof tiles

I suspect there might be painted over asbestos ceilings being found in house. What is asbestos, are there any risks and does the building survey look at this?

Asbestos is a deleterious material of several naturally occurring materials. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White and they were commonly used in building materials including pipe lagging. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has characteristic heat resistance qualities and it may be found in pipe insulation. Technically all forms are ultimately hazardous and can lead to lung cancer or pleural disease following prolonged exposure. Contrary to breathing in a solitary fibre will not kill you.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered never to move asbestos and expert advice should be sought as soon as possible. Getting rid of asbestos will be costly must always be completed by experts.

Surveyors do not tell you whether there is asbestos as part of the survey. However they will report on the risk of asbestos during the Eastleigh survey and will recommend relevant tests.

Damage resulting from flooding

What's the danger of flooding in Eastleigh. Can a RICS surveyor look for indications of flooding, or whether flooding has affected other properties?

Flooding has become a serious concern, more so after it was reported that last year was the second wettest on record (source: The Telegraph); sensible owners and property purchasers in Eastleigh are right to consider precautions. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes. The property survey may also, where appropriate, offer suggestions for better flood defences.An awareness of characteristics of the Eastleigh area likely to affect the Eastleigh home also enables the surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. Also included on Environment Agency's flood danger alert are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.
