Which Home Buyers Survey is the right choice?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Hampshire

    The Homebuyer Report should be chosen if buying a property made of conventional building materials such as brick & tile, in reasonable repair and less than 100 years old.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Hampshire

    A Building Survey (previously called a Full Structural Survey in Hampshire) is also carried out by a MRICS/FRICS chartered surveyor and is more exhaustive. Select this when buying a non standard , for example timber wall homes.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Hampshire

    This is an independent chartered surveyor valuation . It is typically chosen by mortgage free buyers or someone needing a formal valuation e.g. matrimonial dispute.

HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Hampshire and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

If the Hampshire property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make major works, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it will give you comprehensive details of the Hampshire property's state of repair as well as including an opinion on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are concerned about pests. Will the Home Buyers Survey investigate this?

Pests like moths may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Hampshire. This danger should be taken seriously. Evidence may not be easy to find, for example, the smell of ammonia in or behind cupboards may indicate mice, even if no droppings are found. Remedies to insect infestation can include removal of infected furniture.RICS guidelines on the issue of vermin are something of a 'grey-area', so specific fears should be mentioned to your surveyor.

Asbestos roof tiles

There may be a danger of asbestos boilers concealed in the home. Is this a major concern and are there any health risks?

Buildings built prior to 1985 may conceal some materials containing asbestos. Asbestos is a carcinogenic material. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and may be in building materials such as patching compounds. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has excellent fire retarding qualities and it may be found in vinyl flooring. It is found all over the world including Canada. Technically all forms are dangerous and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Contrary to breathing in a one fibre is not deadly.

Should you find asbestos, you should be careful on no account to disturb asbestos and expert advice should be sought without delay. Getting rid of it is dear and must always be carried out by professionals. Hampshire Surveyors do not tell you whether there is asbestos on a Hampshire HomeBuyer report. Surveyors will note possible asbestos during the survey and will advise accordingly.

Damaged Render

What sort of thing will the Surveyor consider on a stucco Victorian semi detached home in Hampshire that I wish to buy.

Stucco is in fact a kind of solid render. Normally stucco render is layered over brick that sets to an even finish. The effect is very aesthetic and is/was found on Victorian houses. It can contain lime (to make it workable) in it as well as a wire under mesh. to help prevent cracks. Stucco is often prone to defect and Surveyors in Hampshire can report defects which can include trapped moisture leading to the render failing. Other issues may involve attack from sulphates or salts derived from wet brickwork. Re-applying Stucco problems can be expensive as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are getting harder to find.
