About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Havant

HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Havant and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Havant property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out alterations, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Havant property's state of repair as well as including advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Is it best to upgrade to full structural survey before buying a dilapidated forties house in Havant?

Structural surveys are now reclassified as Building Surveys. If you are looking into purchasing an altered Havant property like an extended house, this is now the correct choice. This non prescribed format of report specifies crucial professional advice concerning the property's construction and any maintenance needs, following a thorough inspection of the accessible areas. There will be certain limitations with any survey insofar as the surveyor is not in a position to force or open up the fabric of the Havant property such as removing secured panels. Out buildings will, in addition, be checked out.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are concerned about an infestation. Will the Home Buyers Survey investigate this?

Havant homes are generally free of pest problems, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can carry serious health risks and affect its value. It may not be obvious that a building is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. For example, woodworm, or larvae of the common furniture beetle, may be identified after finding neat small holes in wood, accompanied by piles of wood dust beneath. Treatment for a serious infestation may include removal of infected furniture. Rather than pulling out, it may be possible to agree a reduction in the purchase price to cover the cost of remedy.
