Home Buyers Survey in Eastleigh

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Eastleigh and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same.

If the Eastleigh property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works on the property, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will offer a thorough analysis of the Eastleigh property's state of repair as well as information on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any problems I would be advised to look out for when intending to buy a property in Eastleigh in conservation area ?

There are nearly 10, 000 official conservation areas throughout England and Wales, responsibility for which lies with the local authority. Eastleigh surveyors are required by RICS to possess local knowledge of local issues and the relation may have on the home and its value. The value of homes is typically inflated which is down to them being unspoilt. However a large number have been neglected and are in a state of neglect for example - the unsightly effect of billboard advertising

RICS surveyors are trained to tell you if the property is/might be within a conservation area and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Eastleigh Homebuyer Report will recommend the proper questions are conducted by your solicitor. Unsympathetic modifications that do not have Local Authority approval will also be reported but these are really more a investigated by the lawyer. Hedley Visick & Co are based in 109 Leigh Road, Eastleigh, Hampshire, SO50 9DR will be prepared to give you some pointers. Tel: 023 8061 1133

Deteriorated timber

In a Eastleigh HomeBuyer Report what does 'E8 - Other joinery and finishes' cover?

Section E8 covers more decorative aspects of the property's exterior, inspected with the aid of binoculars where appropriate. The type and condition of such components are reported on. Crumbling stucco is an example.

RICS created the HomeBuyer Report to give house buyers a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy, unlike less prescriptive surveys. These may offer more complex detail, but they are also less useful for house buyers deciding whether or not to purchase a Eastleigh residence. A 'traffic light' system of colour coding is used to confirm how concerning each aspect of the report is. Not inspected' is used to indicate those subsections of Section E which do not apply to the house or flat. Irrelevant subsections of the HomeBuyer Report, like an assessment of a conservatory where the home in question does not have one, are disregarded.

Damage resulting from flooding

What's the danger of flooding in Eastleigh. Can a RICS surveyor look for indications of flooding, or whether flooding has affected other properties?

Flooding has become a serious concern, more so after it was reported that last year was the second wettest on record (source: The Telegraph); sensible owners and property purchasers in Eastleigh are right to consider precautions. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes. The property survey may also, where appropriate, offer suggestions for better flood defences.An awareness of characteristics of the Eastleigh area likely to affect the Eastleigh home also enables the surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. Also included on Environment Agency's flood danger alert are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.
