HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Kempshott and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Kempshott property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, however it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Kempshott property's state of repair as well as advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any problems we should check out if buying a house in Kempshott in a conservation area?

There are 9, 300 of conservation areas throughout England and Wales, responsibility for which lies with the local authority. Your surveyor must have sufficient knowledge of local area issues and the relation may have with the home and its value. Prices is, more often than not, enhanced which is down to them being preserved. However many of them are falling into have been neglected and are in disrepair e.g. the huge increase in street clutter

Surveyors are expected note whether the property looks to be so designated and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Homebuyer Report will advise further enquiries are carried out during the conveyancing process. Unconsented modifications to the

property will also be advised in your survey and these will be investigated in more detail by your legal adviser.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are buying a renovated farmhouse in Kempshott. What should be budgeted for upkeep?

Many purchasers plan to buy a home with character, such as a period conversion. Vernacular architecture, however, can worry purchasers. Kempshott property featuring traditional methods can be surprisingly expensive to maintain. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary. Construction materials, such as matching stone or wood, may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of listed property. If the house you are buying may require specialist maintenance, contact the chartered surveyor for more detail.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Is clay soil an issue in Kempshott? What should we expect a HomeBuyer Report to include? Does the chartered surveyor give maintenance advice?

Soil composition can have a measurable impact on a Kempshott house. Specific issues include movement of clay soil layers resulting from changes in their water content. Evidence of clay soil-related problems can sometimes be found throughout a structure. If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Kempshott house's foundations, forcing them inward.

Taking precautions, such as removal of any blockages in the guttering and drains, to prevent water leaking into the soil, can make long term maintenance easier, and keep repair costs manageable. Isolated patches of waterlogged soil can just as easily warp foundations, so care must be taken to ensure the overall moisture level of the clay soil around the foundations stays consistent.
