HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Havant and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Havant property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out alterations, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Havant property's state of repair as well as including advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

For more detailed advice why not obtain a Havant House Survey Quote online or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Roof defects identified during a survey

One of the neighbours mentioned that the had been issues with pooling water on the roof - Will access to the roof of the property be hard to organise?

This is frequently addressed by surveyors. Houses across Havant can often hide roofing woes. From the clay tiles to the valley gutters, the status of the whole roof should be reviewed. The surveyors could suggest that some of the faults must be dealt with immediately.

Roof upkeep can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. Prior to exchange, it may be worth sourcing from a builder a quote for any suggested work. Call GJ Roofing of 10 Stockheath Way, Havant, PO9 2DS on 023 9235 8510 for an estimate.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact could heavy rain have on our new home in Havant, and does our Havant HomeBuyer Report mention it?

As a frequent surveyor of homes in the region, I find it strange that the effect which rainfall has on a residence is overlooked by purchasers. If you have only visited the home on a clear day, defects may not have been obvious. Signs that rainwater goods are a cause for concern include "gushing" gutters, and may lead to cracked foundations and subsidence. Fortunately, issues with rainwater goods are generally easy to fix.

Gas flame

Will a qualified RICS surveyor check the condition of the gas heaters?

The local surveyor will visually check out the easily accessible parts of the system. This will include the mains gas installation at the home, as well as gas affiliated appliances or installations such as ventilation of flue (if blocked). Should there be any external fittings they however, won't be dislodged. Of course, gas is potentially hazardous and if there are any concerns relating to gas installations, contact a gas safe engineer immediately.

The regulations stipulate that all landlords are obligated to carry out appliance and installation inspections every 12 months and punishments for failure to comply are harsh .
