HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Brockenhurst and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Brockenhurst property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make significant alterations on the property, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it does give a more detailed analysis of the Brockenhurst property's general condition along with advice on defects and maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does a chartered surveyor advise on the safety of the gas flues?

A local surveyor will locate and visually check any accessible parts of the gas system. This will include gas (and oil heaters) for instance, as well as gas connected appliances e.g. chimney breasts or flues. Fittings won't actually be detached. The gas system will not be tested at all. Most people are aware that gas is potentially dangerous and if there are any worries about gas fittings or if you smell the distinctive smell of gas, call a gas engineer.

Damage resulting from flooding

We understand this property is located in a low lying area. Is there a major flood risk? Would our home buyers survey check indications of water damage?

It is estimated that over two million houses and flats are at risk of water damage caused by flooding, and it is not clear that reasonably-priced flooding insurance will be available in years to come. Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the residential property in question is in danger. The HomeBuyer Report may also, where appropriate, advise appropriate repairs.An awareness of characteristics of the Brockenhurst area likely to affect the Brockenhurst property also enables the building surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. Also included on Environment Agency's flood risk alert are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is wet weather an issue in Brockenhurst? Could damaged gutters lower the property value?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, this issue is ignored by buyers. Signs that rainwater goods are blocked include corroded downspouts, but you may wish to ask your surveyor for more detail. Whether buying in Brockenhurst or elsewhere, difficult rainwater goods does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to remedy. However, if the drains are untreated or poorly maintained, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair. In the worst case scenario, deterioration of a building's foundations can become fatal to its structural integrity, risking collapse.
