HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Eastleigh and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same.

If the Eastleigh property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works on the property, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will offer a thorough analysis of the Eastleigh property's state of repair as well as information on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

What's the danger of flooding in Eastleigh. Can a RICS surveyor look for indications of flooding, or whether flooding has affected other properties?

Flooding has become a serious concern, more so after it was reported that last year was the second wettest on record (source: The Telegraph); sensible owners and property purchasers in Eastleigh are right to consider precautions. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes. The property survey may also, where appropriate, offer suggestions for better flood defences.An awareness of characteristics of the Eastleigh area likely to affect the Eastleigh home also enables the surveyor to advise flooding

may be a risk. Also included on Environment Agency's flood danger alert are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.

Gas flame

Will the surveyor go into detail on the state of the gas heaters?

A RICS chartered surveyor will visually look at the accessible parts of the system. A surveyor will want to inspect whether the meter is in an escape route at the building, as well as gas associated appliances or installations, for instance chimney breasts. External fittings won't actually be taken off. Most people are aware that gas can be dangerous, if you have any worries relating to gas installations or if you smell gas, contact a gas safe engineer.

The regulations stipulate landlords have to carry out appliance and installation inspections yearly and punishments for failure to comply are harsh .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I've put in an offer in Eastleigh. What input does a surveyor in Eastleigh give?

Eastleigh brick-walled conversions can suffer from a number of issues, ranging from vertical cracking to crypto-florescence.

A defect often found is thermal movement, particularly on longer walls. A F Brickwork should be able to assist with a maintenance quote. Contact them at 01325 337323 or 28 Woolsington Dr, Middleton St. George, Darlington, DL2 1UL.

Other aspects of a property which may feature decorative include diapering' (using contrast and varied colours of bricks to enliven a plain surface). It may be appropriate to renegotiate the price of a property if a survey reveals even superficial brick wall problems.
