Which Home Buyers Survey is the right choice?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Hampshire

    The Homebuyer Report should be chosen if buying a property made of conventional building materials such as brick & tile, in reasonable repair and less than 100 years old.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Hampshire

    A Building Survey (previously called a Full Structural Survey in Hampshire) is also carried out by a MRICS/FRICS chartered surveyor and is more exhaustive. Select this when buying a non standard , for example timber wall homes.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Hampshire and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

If the Hampshire property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make major works, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it will give you comprehensive details of the Hampshire property's state of repair as well as including an opinion on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

Can houses partially constructed with stone create more problems for the owner? Which major problems should we consider, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

Ranging from Golconda Dolomitic Limestone to Westwood Ground Limestone, the stone used in a home's structure will impact maintenance. The properties of a stone can affect wear as much as upkeep or construction. Irregular stone walls are found throughout the county, and can require more care and attention that regular, brick-like stone walls due greater impact the weather can have on exposed mortar. Repair advice often includes resolution of underlying problems, like damp, before work on the wall starts.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Ham Hill Stone Co Ltd, Hamdon House, Sparsholt, Winchester, Hampshire, SO22 5RB for details. Call 01962 850077 for more information.

For more details, consider a stonemason or other knowledgeable contractor in the area. For example, Toast, Fitzhead, Gravel La, Barton Stacey, Winchester, SO21 3RQ may be able to assist.

Landfill site near home

What should we be worried about when buying a building proximate to Abbey Fruit Farm near Woolston Road and landfill sites generally

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes e.g. domestic refuse. Thousands of sites affect many thousands of people in England and Wales including Hampshire. Risks include bacterial decomposition resulting in methane. Potential health concerns like congenital birth defects have been associated with landfill sites .

Surveyors will notice structural defects connected with the landfill. Your legal representative will commission conveyancing searches of the British Geological data sets and Winchester Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a Building survey in Hampshire include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for professional fees e.g legal fees) and what does it include?

A Homebuyer Report on a Hampshire property will contain an independent valuation and a reinstatement cost estimate as part of the report. To be able to determine an accurate estimate of the value of the building your independent surveyor will take into account awareness of the Hampshire property market and other things relating to the property for instance: number of bedrooms Surveyors also reflect on materials used and will use other assumptions, for example it is connected to mains services.

A Building Survey won't include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Additional local Hampshire area assumptions, like water and drainage connectivity, are made in addition to any Hampshire environmental problems like flightpaths, which will also be factored in.
