HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Langstone and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same.

If the Langstone property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it will give exhaustive analysis of the Langstone property's condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The Fletton brick on this Langstone residence is in poor condition - what should we do? Is age a factor?

Brick-constructed properties demonstrate several benefits. However, they can also experience numerous defects. For instance, frost damage, which over time will cause bricks and mortar to disintegrate entirely and should be taken very seriously.

To arrange a quote for repairs, contact a local specialist, e.g. KJE Brickwork at 14 Murrells La, Camberley, GU15 2PY on 07766 101122.

Buyers in Langstone should consider that a range of techniques feature in construction throughout Langstone.

As an example, English bond, featuring alternating rows of long and short faces of bricks. The apparent simplicity of brick repairs compared to plumbing or rewiring can lead to a DIY effort making a situation worse. Seek advice before undertaking such work, and do not disregard your surveyors advice.

Gas flame

Will the qualified RICS surveyor report on the state of repair of the gas mains supply?

The qualified surveyor will visually inspect the easily accessible parts of the gas system. This will include the mains gas installation at the building, as well as gas related gas fittings in the home e.g. balanced flues. A Langstone surveyor won't remove external fittings or housings and won't carry out any tests of any kind on the serviceability of the system. Anything related to gas should be handled with care as it is potentially unsafe, should you have any worries about gas, call a gas safe engineer.

Landfill site near home

What should we be fearful of when purchasing a house in the region a rubbish landfill

Langstone surveyors will flag up structural issues connected with the landfill. Your conveyancer will conduct conveyancing and environmental searches of the Landmark data sets as well as Havant Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .
