Home Buyers Survey in Winchester

HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Winchester property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out significant alterations, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it does give exhaustive analysis of the Winchester property's general condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

Do stone-walled property in Winchester create more problems for the buyer? What should we be particularly aware of?

Ranging from Lees Endcliffe Sandstone to Cromwell Sandstone, the stone used in a home's structure will impact maintenance. Problems which impact stone-built homes in Winchester can vary greatly, with issues like deteriorating mortar being quote common. Bear in mind that some defects will affect regular or irregularly cut stone equally, whereas others will not, and may require a local surveyors expertise to identify. Ashlar courses are often used to finish more irregular stone walls. This can give rise to maintenance issues if either element of the wall has been treated with a non-breathable material. Repair advice often includes using traditional techniques when making repairs to the fabric of older buildings.

The sheer breadth of varying stone materials can make it difficult for purchasers to correctly identify the particular stone used in the building of a home. Quarries in Winchester should be able to supply local stone.

If, in the course of carrying out maintenance, you need further advice, get in touch with a local firm. Stones, 14 Spring La, Colden Common, Winchester, SO21 1SD (Phone: 01962 714565), for example, could assist.

Damage resulting from flooding

Are Winchester properties at risk, and does a RICS surveyor check for possible flood damage?

Recent conflict between insurers has the government has caused a great deal of uncertainty, and the value of a residential property in an at-risk area may be impacted. The Environment Agency maintain a flood danger alert service, with regular updated risk assessments. The Building Survey may also, where appropriate, recommend maintenance.

The GroundSure Flood Report is one of several risk screening reports designed to provide an overview of whether a house in Winchester lies within an area of potential or previous flood risk. The surveyor may ask the residents about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.
