Home Buyers Survey in Bosham

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Bosham and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Bosham property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, you should you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Bosham property's general condition and it includes information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

We are buying a home in Bosham with Hopton Wood stone walls. What should we look in to?

External wall maintenance is essential to the health of buildings. The problems which can plague poorly maintained stone vary considerably. Stone quarried in the area is common to local buildings, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county. Guidelines for better stone wall upkeep include removal of invasive plants, such as ivy.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what effect may rainfall have on our new Bosham home? Where there is damage, what should we do?

I find it odd that the effect which wet weather has on houses is rarely paid due attention. One indication that rainwater goods are a cause for concern is flaking or efflorescence on external walls. This can lead to cracked foundations and subsidence.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to repair fairly cheaply. However, if the drains are not maintained, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair. In the worst case scenario, deterioration of a building's foundations can become fatal to its structural integrity, risking collapse.

Gas flame

Will a RICS surveyor check out the safety of the gas installations?

A surveyor will locate and visually check the accessible parts of the system. The survey will include whether the mains is connected where relevant, as well as gas affiliated fixtures such as flue/chimney maintenance. The Bosham RICS chartered surveyor won't remove any fittings nor will they carry out any tests whatsoever on the system. Anything related to gas should be handled with care as it is potentially unsafe, should there be any worries about gas fittings, contact a gas safe engineer.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The property we plan to buy is built on clay soil. What should we expect a Bosham HomeBuyer Report to include?

The content of soil around the foundations of a Bosham property will have an impact. Specific issues include soil swelling. Drought, for instance, can have a obvious contracting effect on clay soil, putting pressure on the building's structure and potentially leading to very noticeable effects within the property. Signs like a hard-to-open garage door can be an early warning, suggesting severe underlying structural deficiencies. There is a real benefit in booking a Bosham surveyor to carry out your HomeBuyer Report, familiar with local soil composition, and who has witnessed the effects first-hand. If soil water levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is also important. Your surveyor may be able to offer practical suggestions as to how this can be achieved.
