HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in New Milton and which would be cheaper?

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

If the New Milton property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any substantial modifications, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the New Milton property's condition along with an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

Can Slate-built houses be a challenge. What should we be particularly aware of? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

Incorrect specification of coating type to damp or defective walls can often cause problems for homes in New Milton with stone walls. Defects affecting stone-built homes in New Milton can vary, salt contamination of being relatively common.

Stone walls are either regular (cut) or irregular in structure, each of which will provoke particular concerns. Choice of stone will impact the lifespan of a structure, for example, slate is far more water-resistant than many other stones. These walls will need frequent upkeep.

Ask you surveyor for details, but the report may specify using traditional techniques when making repairs to the fabric of older buildings.

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour stated there may be a risk of brown asbestos boiler cupboard being found in property. What is asbestos and what are the remedial options?

Asbestos is a harmful material. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White may be in building materials for example eaves. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has characteristic heat resistance qualities and it may be found in ironing boards. Technically all forms including white ( Chrysotile) are ultimately deadly and might lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. In fact breathing in a solitary fibre is not fatal.

If discovered, one must be careful never to displace it and expert advice should be sought ASAP. Professional removal of it will probably be dear and must always be completed by trained experts. New Milton Surveyors will not test for asbestos on a survey. They will note suspected asbestos risks and will recommend professional testing.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We have learnt that New Milton residential property built on clay soil can experience problems. Can your New Milton Property Survey investigate this?

Clay soil-related issues can work slowly over many years, or can arise without warning after a bout of extreme weather or flooding. Subsidence is one obvious concern, but there are others, including uneven soil compaction. There are two terms used to describe clay soils likely to be problematic, 'expansive' and 'reactive'. If a home owner is aware that the surrounding soil has a high clay content, they should monitor for possible signs. Signs like a hard-to-open garage door can be an early warning, suggesting severe underlying structural deficiencies. During the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the home will be considered. If soil moisture levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is essential. Subsidence and heave can be caused by a general increase or decrease in moisture, but isolated patches of wet and dry can just as easily warp foundations, putting them under even greater pressure.
