About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Hedge End

HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Hedge End and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Hedge End property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We are buying a loft-conversion in Hedge End. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. Will access to the structure's roof be an issue?

This is often asked by home buyers who know that homes could feature roofing problems, such as. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from ceiling joists to sheeting. Factors like a slope of less than 12 to 15 degrees are particularly troublesome for flat roofed property.

Repairs need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A building survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will be facing. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.

Damage resulting from flooding

We believe this home is located by a brook. Is there a major flood risk? Would our chartered surveyor check flooding?

A wide variety of factors can cause water damage caused by flooding, from inadequate drainage to tidal activity, and house buyers and owners are understandably concerned. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes.

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a house in Hedge End, such as via patio doors. Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the house in Hedge End or on adjacent sites. The Environment Agency also publish details of previous flood warnings.

Stone block wall damage

I am purchasing a conversion and the estate agent has stated that it has been built with Portland stone. What problems must we watch out for? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

There are several of defects and issues associated with stone-built property. Issues which impact the lifespan of stone-built elements are as diverse as the stone varieties themselves.

Stone walls are either regular (cut) or irregular in structure, each of which will provoke particular concerns. Buyers should consider that stone can have a great effect on the long-term viability of a property or extension, resulting in higher repair costs in future. For example, slate is more damp resistant than many other forms of stone, as is granite. Advice for better upkeep will vary according to the needs of individual property, such as use of traditional methods to maintain older walls.

If, in the course of carrying out maintenance, you need further advice, contact a local stonemason or specialist. For example, Pomery Natural Stone, Little Heathers, 1 Outlands La, Curdridge, Southampton, SO30 2HD (Phone: 01489 789444).
