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 .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

I know that New Milton subsidence could be an issue. What subsidence-related matters will the Surveyor investigate?

Subsidence is defined as movement of the foundations of a building, but some degree of movement will always occur. New builds, for example, will need to settle under the home's own weight. Additionally, most homes in New Milton are constructed from a range of materials, each of which will contract at a varying rates.

This issue can occur in areas with soil with a greater-than-average concentration of sand, as this soil is more easily washed away by flooding. In some cases, the presence of buried peat or other organic material, which begins to rot, can also destabilise the structure. The weight of the foundations will then compress the sub soil.

Learning the cause of any subsidence should be the first priority.This is not always as costly as some buyers fear.Though tree roots are often the cause, removal of this plant life may make the problem worse, so professional advice should be sought. Structural brickwork may need to be dismantled and rebuilt, or more cosmetic areas

can effectively be repaired with resin filling in the cracks. This can also be time-consuming, and inconvenient. 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.

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.

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a New Milton home surveyor check indications of water damage?

Last year was the second wettest year on record (source: Evening Standard), and owning a residence in or near a high-risk area can mean higher insurance premiums. The Environment Agency maintain a flood risk alert service, with regular updated risk assessments.

Flood water can enter a New Milton house through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls. An awareness of characteristics of the New Milton area likely to affect the New Milton house also enables the building surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a survey report if the building surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the New Milton house is at risk.
