HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Waterlooville and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same.

If the Waterlooville property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension on the property, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it will give exhaustive analysis of the Waterlooville property's state of repair and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I saw the unmodernised property I want to lease, the agent said that there are doubts as to then safety of the electrical system - will a Waterlooville Homebuyer Report go into detail on the electrical system?

During a Building Survey in Waterlooville the RICS surveyor should usually remark on the electrics if it is obvious that they are in an unsatisfactory state. He or she is trained to report on issues like the whereabouts of the fuse board or checking the state of a representative sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear. Examining the documentation from a test on the condition

of the electrical connections carried out by a suitably qualified electrician on the property will form part of the survey.

The IEE suggest that a Periodic Inspection need be completed at least every 10 years (5 if letting out).

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact should wet weather have on our new house in Waterlooville? Will the surveyor report on this? Also, if there is damage, will they be a hassle to fix?

I find it odd that the impact heavy rain can have on houses is not given enough thought by buyers. One indication that drainage are blocked is rotten roofing elements. Blocked rainwater goods can result in penetrating damp.

Fortunately, this is generally easy to fix. Where this is not cleared out regularly, the damage becomes increasing costly to remedy.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We are buying in Waterlooville and are looking for a 80s residence with Dutch bond brick. What input does you give?

Brick apartments be subject to a number of issues, such as cracks. One defect surveyors commonly report on brick buildings is diagonal cracks which widen as they move upwards. These may result from ground movement, or where a timber element of the wall has rotted away.

To arrange a quote for repairs, contact a local specialist, e.g. Joy C R A at 97 Wessex Est, Ringwood, BH24 1XD on 01425 476889.

A range of courses arrangements and colours of brick building feature in construction throughout Waterlooville. As an example, Dutch bond, which is similar to English bond, but it is strongly advised that professional advice be sought prior to attempting repairs.
