HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Sandbanks and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same survey.

If the Sandbanks property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any works or an extension on the Sandbanks property, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give you comprehensive details of the Sandbanks property's general condition along with an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect can rainfall have on a house in Sandbanks?

Climate change is regularly in the news. However the effect which wet weather has on property in Sandbanks is rarely considered properly. As an example, spattered mud around the bottom of downspouts may indicate that the downspouts are a cause for concern. This could then result in hazardous mould.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to remedy.However, the damage caused, where

not maintained, will be expense to remedy and resulting damp and mould could become a health risk.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Sandbanks, and think we saw signs of an infestation in the basement. What advice should we get?

Property are generally free of vermin, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months, woodworm, or larvae of the common furniture beetle, may be identified after finding neat small holes in wood, accompanied by piles of wood dust beneath. Treatment for pests may include traps. If you strongly suspect an issue with carpet beetle larvae, or any pest, speak to your chartered surveyor

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a surveyor check for possible water damage, or whether flooding has affected the garden?

Burst dams, tidal activity and inadequate drainage can all result in extensive flooding, and purchasers and owners are understandably concerned. Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the property in question is in danger, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures. Details relating to signs of flooding may be reported in Section J of the HomeBuyer Report. The chartered surveyor may ask the vendor or agent about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.
