Home Buyers Survey in Hurst

HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Hurst and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Hurst property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works on the Hurst property, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it does provide you with a thorough analysis of the Hurst property's state of repair and it includes more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should I be wary of when buying a house proximate to a rubbish dump

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste including commercial waste. Understandably, no one would want to live near one (80% of people live near one). Worries include hazardous chemicals. Potential health concerns like cancer have been linked to landfill sites .

Surveyors in Hurst will examine structural issues connected with the landfill. Your conveyancing solicitor will commission conveyancing and environmental searches of the Landmark databases in addition to East Hampshire Local Authority and advise you .

Shocking Electrics

When we saw a property we are intending to move into We noticed that there were damaged electrical sockets, does a the surveyor write anything on the wiring and fusebox?

When preparing a Home Survey in Hurst your surveyor should make a note on the condition of the electrics if it is suspected that they are in a hazardous state.

This will include a by sight (i.e. without undoing fittings) inspection check of any uncovered sections of the wiring as well as things, for example whether there is an off-peak /on-peak mains supply.

Verifying the existence of any documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by a suitably qualified electrician on the property should be part of the survey. Inspecting any evidence of the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by a suitably qualified electrician will usually form part of the Homebuyer report in Hurst .

The Institute of Electrical Engineers advocate that a check to confirm whether an electrical installation is in a satisfactory condition be conducted at least every 10 years (5 if letting out).

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a Hurst house built in the early 50s, but it has clay foundations. Does a Hurst House Survey discuss soil composition the report?

The adverse impact clay soil can have on a home can be significant, with subsidence being a common example. In Hurst's relatively mild climate, the variations in volume which clay soil experiences will be barely noticeable, but extended dry or wet spells may well impact the soil's stability and affecting the property itself. Expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a home's foundations, forcing them inward. Where the foundation walls have insufficient support, they will bow and crack. This can result in costly and even dangerous structural damage. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Hurst, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the home. 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.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We need Flemish bond upkeep suggestions, can a surveyor in Hurst help? Does render make a difference?

Brick-constructed apartments feature several advantages. However, they can also experience considerable issues. These can include frost damaged pointing or spalling. For instance, diagonal cracking caused by ground movement and should be taken very seriously. A local builder should be able to assist. Call J B Brickwork, 35 Baxter Dr, Sheffield, S6 1GH on 0114-232 5910 for a quote for repair work.

Hurst home purchasers may need to consider that range of courses arrangements and colours have been used for centuries. As an example, English bond, featuring alternating rows of long and short faces of bricks. .

The consequences of amateur repairs can either worsen the problem, or create entirely new defects in a brick wall. Professional advice can reduce the risk of this.
