Home Buyers Survey in Headley

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Headley and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Headley property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension on the Headley property, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Headley property's general condition as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is rain an issue in Headley? Will the chartered surveyor report on this? We're concerned about replacement costs.

As a frequent surveyor of local property, I find it strange that the effect which rainfall has on your home is overlooked. If you have investigated the property you intend to purchase on a clear day, defects may not have been obvious.

Signs that drainage systems are a cause for concern include corroded downspouts, and may lead to fungi or mould which can be a health risk. Fortunately, guttering issues are usually easy to resolve for a reasonable cost. If left untreated, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.

Shocking Electrics

When I viewed the unmodernised property I am meaning to buy, it appeared that there might be an overload of the fuses/fusebox - does a the surveyor advise the electrics?

When performing a Headley Home Survey a surveyor will comment on the condition of the electrics if it appears that they are in an unsafe state of repair. A Chartered surveyor is trained to give detail on issues like ensuring supplementary bonding is in the correct place. Verifying the location of the evidence of any recent PIR conducted by an electrician on the property should form part of the Homebuyer report in Headley.

Landfill site near home

What should I be fearful of when buying a property close to a refuse landfill site

Sites used for landfill take many forms for example: hazardous waste material. Understandably, no one would want to live near one (most people do live near one). Worries include complex organic chemicals. Potential health problems such as birth defects have been linked to landfill sites .

Headley surveyors will consider structural issues linked to the landfill. Your conveyancer will commission conveyancing searches of the British Geological database and East Hampshire Local Authority and give you the results of the search .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are planning to buy a 1960-built house in Headley and found cracks along one external wall. What subsidence information does the Headley Building Survey include?

Movement of a house on a structural level is called subsidence. Buyers in Headley should be aware, however, that there is a difference between subsidence and benign settlement.

In clay soil regions, drought can cause the water table to drop. This dries out and shrinks the clay, putting a strain on the foundations and which causes subsidence. Inside the house, keep an eye out for new or growing cracks in exterior brickwork.

Finding the cause of any subsidence is key. The removal of trees may make the problem worse, however, so professional advice should be sought. Existing trees must be well managed, and new trees should be planted at a safe distance from the exterior walls of the property. Beech and sycamore trees, for example, should be planted at least 15m from a property. Damaged but non-structural elements should be filled and re-weatherproofed. Your surveyor may suggest that you talk to an arborist to find out the best cause of action if trees or other plant life is the suspected cause.
