About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Chandlers Ford

HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Chandlers Ford and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Chandlers Ford property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any major works, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it will offer comprehensive details of the Chandlers Ford property's condition in addition to an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The estate agent stated there could be brown asbestos Artex affecting the home. What is asbestos, what are the risks and can it be treated?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous mineral of several naturally occurring materials. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and may be in building materials for example pipe insulation. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has excellent heat resistance properties, it may be found in paper lining.

All forms are hazardous and may lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. In fact breathing in a single fibre is not fatal.

If discovered, one must be careful not to move the asbestos and expert advice must be taken as soon as possible. Professional removal of asbestos will be dear but must be completed by professionals.

Surveyors do not test for asbestos on a Chandlers Ford HomeBuyer report. Surveyors will note possible asbestos during the Chandlers Ford survey and will suggest further investigation.

Damage resulting from flooding

We believe this property is located by a brook. Is there a major flood risk? Would our RICS surveyor inquire into any flooding damage?

The Law Society estimate that 2.2m residences are in danger of flooding, and it is not clear that reasonably-priced flooding insurance will be available in years to come. A flood warning service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst.

Familiarity with characteristics of the local area likely to affect property in Chandlers Ford enables the surveyor to surmise flooding may be a risk, even if the property has not itself flooded before. The Environment Agency also publish details of previous flood warnings.
