HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Liphook and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same.

If the Liphook property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make an extension, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Liphook property's general condition and it includes an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

For more information you can get a Liphook Home Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.

Damaged Render

What will the Surveyor take into account on a smooth stucco Victorian house in Liphook that we intend to purchase.

Stucco is really just a form of render. Commonly stucco render is applied to brick hardens to form a smooth stone like surface. The effect is highly appealing and is common on some Regency houses. Expert tradesmen who work with it say it is very like plaster. Sometimes it can contain lime in it as well as a wire under mesh. to help stop cracks. Stucco is often prone to defect and Liphook surveyors can detail any number of problems for example trapped water culminating in internal damp problems

Another example of problems might include when the application has been taken down to ground level and bypasses the Damp Proof Course. Re-applying problems may be surprisingly expensive as the skills are becoming harder to find.

Asbestos roof tiles

A builder friend noted there is a risk of asbestos coatings spayed on beams at the property. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a carcinogenic fibrous mineral. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White are often building materials such as walls.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has good sound absorption properties, it may be found in wall panelling.

All forms are dangerous and may lead to lung cancer or asbestosis following prolonged exposure. Contrary to common perception, inhaling a solitary fibre will not kill you.

If found, care should be taken on no account to displace it. Professional advice must be taken without delay. Professional removal of it will likely be costly but absolutely must be conducted by trained experts. Surveyors will not confirm the existence asbestos on a Liphook HomeBuyer report. However they will report on potential asbestos and should advise accordingly.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I have learnt that clay soil can create problems for homes in Liphook. Will the Liphook Property Survey consider this?

Whether a house was built in 17012 or 20012, factors as varied as termites or mould can create inconvenience for an owner. Foundations dug into clay-rich soil, for example, can result in a range of issues. Specific issues include consolidation, or the change in volume of soil resulting from water loss. Given the moisture content does have such a great affect of clay-rich soil, owners should be aware that defects can arise if environmental conditions change. Visible results may be anything from separation of the skirting board from the floor to warped window frames in the drawing room. There is a real benefit in booking a Liphook surveyor to carry out your Home Survey, familiar with local soil composition, and who has witnessed the effects first-hand. The building foundations may need extra support in some cases. A surveyor can confirm if this is necessary, as it can be a lengthy process.
