HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Hayling Island and of the 3, which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Hayling Island property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out significant alterations, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it does give a more detailed analysis of the Hayling Island property's general condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

I have read that subsidence in Hayling Island may be a problem. What subsidence issues does the Chartered Surveyor report on?

Subsidence is movement in a structure's foundations. In most cases, subsidence can be rectified. Most homes in Hayling Island are constructed from a range of materials. These will contract at different rates.

Subsidence can result from several issues, some common throughout Hayling Island. Collapsed mains drainage pipes can cause subsidence by washing away or loosening subsoil. This may be referred to as groundwater subsidence. Organic material in the sub-soil can also create issues. A high water table will ensure that organic materials in the soil, such as peat, do not decompose but if the soil dries, this organic matter will decompose. This causes the volume of soil to reduce so that foundations can crush the subsoil.

The root cause of any subsidence must be found before repairs can commence. The removal of trees may make the problem worse, however, so professional advice should be sought. Damaged but non-structural elements should be filled and re-weatherproofed. Your surveyor may suggest that you talk to an arborist to find out the best cause of action if trees or other plant life is the suspected cause.

Landfill site near home

What should we be wary of when buying a house near to a refuse tip

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes e.g. commercial refuse. No one wants to live near one (most people do live near one). Worries might include bacterial decomposition resulting in methane. Health problems such as congenital birth defects have been associated with landfill sites .

Homebuyer reports in Hayling Island will flag up structural problems connected with the landfill. Your conveyancer will carry out environmental searches of the Environmental Agency data sets in addition to Havant Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .

Roof defects identified during a survey

I have put in an offer on a Hayling Island building with a loft conversion, and we are wary of potential roofing issues. What does the Hayling Island building surveyor look for?

Questions like this are often asked of surveyors by house purchasers who are aware that property can often hide roof maintenance problems, such as sagging beams. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from ridge flashing to decking. Problems can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by holes or cracks in the waterproof layer.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like re-covering asphalt, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. A Hayling Island builder with professional accreditation should be able to assist with a quote. Call G L C Flatroofing of 11 Fair Oak Rd, Southsea, PO4 8FG on 023 9273 3095 for details.
