HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Kempshott and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Kempshott property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, however it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Kempshott property's state of repair as well as advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

For more detailed advice get a Kempshott House Survey Quote on our site or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Stone block wall damage

I am purchasing a residential property and the vendor has stated that it has been constructed with Clipsham stone. What should we look in to, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

The sturdy appearance of stone walls may hide serious concerns. Issues including delamination affect many stone-walled Kempshott properties.

Stone walls are either regular (cut) or irregular in structure, each of which will provoke particular concerns. Upkeep advice often given in a survey includes repointing mortar with a suitable material.

Landfill site near home

What should I be fearful of if buying a property next to a refuse landfill site

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes for example: commercial waste material. Nobody ideally wants to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Risks might include tars and other hazardous materials. Potential health problems such as downs syndrome have been associated to landfill sites .

Surveys in Kempshott will flag up structural issues connected with the landfill. Your solicitor will carry out environmental searches of the Environmental Agency databases in addition to Basingstoke and Deane Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .

Roof defects identified during a survey

I am going to put in an offer in on a property in Kempshott. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. What advice would the Kempshott house surveyor give in their report?

This is a common concern for home buyers who have had to shell out for major repairs in the past. Houses across Kempshott could unfortunately be experiencing damage to the roof, including. From parapet walls to sheathing, every element of the roof should be reported on. Issues can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by badly installed felting.

Roof upkeep need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A building survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will be facing. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.

However, buyers should endeavour to compare a number of quotes to find the best deal. Call Property Fix (UK) Developments of Old Farm/Farm Road, Micheldever, Winchester, SO21 3BW on 01256 807512 to request an estimate.
