HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Lee On The Solent and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is effectively the same survey.

If the Lee On The Solent property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make substantial modifications, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does provide you with a thorough analysis of the Lee On The Solent property's condition as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does the qualified surveyor check out the serviceability of the gas installations?

The qualified RICS surveyor will visually check any easily accessible parts of the system. This means things like gas heaters (also LPG/oil/electric) as part of the survey, in addition to gas affiliated appliances or installations e.g. prefabricated flues. A Lee On The Solent qualified RICS surveyor will not remove external fittings nor will the surveyor carry out any tests on the appliances or system. Gas can be unsafe and if there are any worries about gas fittings or if you smell the distinctive smell of gas, contact a gas safe engineer.

House Prices

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are planning to buy a property in Lee On The Solent and spotted cracks down the gable wall. How could this affect the property, and what subsidence information does the Lee On The Solent property survey include?

Subsidence is defined as movement of the foundations of a structure, but some degree of movement will always occur. New properties, for example, will need to settle under the weight of the building. The builder will likely return to a new structure after some months to make good any settlement cracks.

Cracks to a bedroom window are a clear sign of subsidence, but they may be harmless. Organic material in the sub-soil can also create issues. Organic material such as peat is usually stable if kept moist by the water level, but if the soil dries, this organic matter will begin to rot and become unstable. The weight of the foundations will then compress the sub soil.

Identifying the cause of subsidence is the first step to its solution. Removing or even pruning the tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Existing trees must be well managed, and new trees should be planted at a safe distance from the exterior walls of the property. Willow trees, for example, are often the culprits of serious subsidence. Buyers are often surprised to learn that a willow tree should be planted no neared than 40m from a home. 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.
