Home Buyers Survey in Farnborough

HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Farnborough and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Farnborough 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 advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Farnborough property's condition as well as including an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I have learnt that clay soil can cause difficulties for residential property in Farnborough. What should we expect a Home Buyers Survey to include?

The content of soil around the foundations of a home will have an impact. Specific issues include considerable shifts in soil volume caused by variable moisture content. The composition of clay soil varies greatly, with some areas being more susceptible to clay soil subsidence than others, but the effects can be very similar. .

If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Farnborough home's foundations, leading to bowing, cracks and severe structural damage. A Farnborough surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. 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.

Conservation area

Are there any concerns I would need to check on when planning to buy a home in Farnborough in a conservation area?

There are 9, 300 of conservation areas throughout the country which are designated by local councils.

A Building Surveyors need to possess relevant knowledge of local factors and any effect they have on the property and its value. Prices tends to be higher because of them resisting change. However a growing number have been neglected and are in shoddy condition e.g. the unsightly effect of billboard advertising

Surveyors are expected advise whether the building looks like it may be is so classified and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Homebuyer Report will suggest further enquiries are carried out by your solicitor. Unconsented extensions to the building should be reported but these are really more a investigated by your lawyer.
