HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Fawley and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Fawley property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make significant alterations, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Fawley property's condition in addition to an opinion on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any problems we need to verify if intending to buy a period property in Fawley near a conservation area ?

There are many thousands official conservation areas in England and Wales which are designated by the local council. Surveyors in Fawley need to possess relevant knowledge of relevant local considerations and the connection may have on the property and its value. The price of property will likely be significantly higher which is down to the areas retaining original features.

RICS surveyors can be expected to report whether the building is/might be so designated and Section I of the

Homebuyer Report will recommend the proper questions are conducted by your legal adviser. Unsympathetic modifications to the property may be commented on but these are really more a concern for your legal adviser.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We are buying a loft-conversion in Fawley. What aspects of the roof will be reported on?

This is a common concern for home buyers who know how costly roofing work can be. Houses across Fawley will suffer roof maintenance problems. Every element should be checked, e.g. dormer windows, and any defects addressed as soon as possible.

Upkeep 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. A quote for the work could be sought from a reliable builder from the area. Contact Baileys Building Ltd of Blackfield Business Centre/114-118 Hampton La, Blackfield, Southampton, SO45 1UB on 023 8024 3538 to request an estimate.

Gas flame

Does a RICS surveyor check the safety of the gas heaters?

The qualified surveyor will visually examine any accessible parts of the system. The surveyor will look at the gas pipe route as part of the Fawley survey, as well as gas associated fixtures like balanced flues (where immediately extended from appliance/external element).. A Fawley RICS surveyor won't remove gas fittings nor will they conduct any tests whatsoever on the serviceability of the system. Most people are aware that gas is potentially unsafe, if you have any worries about gas fittings or if you suspect a gas issue, call a gas engineer.
