HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Haslemere and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same.

If the Haslemere property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any major works, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it does give you comprehensive details of the Haslemere property's condition along with an opinion on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Will a qualified RICS surveyor advise on the state of the gas installations?

The local surveyor will locate and visually check any easily accessible parts of the system. The survey will include gas (and oil heaters) for instance, in addition to gas affiliated appliances such as chimney linings. Fittings won't however be taken off. Of course, gas can be hazardous, should there be any worries relating to gas installations or if you suspect a gas issue, call a gas engineer immediately.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We're purchasing a structure in Haslemere. What should we do about roof repairs?

Residential property in Haslemere with no other major issues can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer roofing woes. All aspects of the roof should be reviewed, from the dormer windows to the parapet walls. Flat roofs are also known for the trouble they can cause, often the result of literally being flat. An incline of at least '1 to 80' is recommended.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. A builder from the area can provide an estimate. Contact A & J of Unit 11 Courts Yard/Jobsons Lane, Haslemere, GU27 3BX on 01428 645819 for details.

Conservation area

Will there be any things I need to check on if intending to buy a property in Haslemere inside a conservation area, particularly in respect of to house prices?

There are over 9, 000 official conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are designated by the local authority. Surveyors in Haslemere need to possess relevant knowledge of relevant local area factors and any relation they have with the home and its value. The price of property will likely be greater as a result of them retaining their original character.

Property surveyors can be expected to report if the property is/might be so designated and Section I of a Haslemere Homebuyer Report will advise suitable questions are raised during the conveyancing process. Unapproved developments that do not have Local Authority approval may be advised but these are really more a investigated by your conveyancer.
