HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Southsea and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Southsea property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out significant alterations on the Southsea property, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Southsea property's state of repair as well as including more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

External walls

On the HomeBuyer Report, what are the usual Condition rating 3 defects affecting main walls?

Red, or condition rating 3, defects are serious, or require immediate attention. Such issues can have a significant impact on a home's value. Note that concealed elements will not be considered. Observations on the Damp Proof Course are also reported here. Missing bricks is one defect applicable to this section.

Gas flame

Does a local surveyor give details on the condition or the safety of the gas installations?

The qualified RICS surveyor will locate and visually look at the easily accessible parts of the system. The surveyor will look at gas (and oil heaters) as part of the survey, in addition to gas related fittings for example - the condition of gas piping in loft spaces. Gas fittings will not however be dislodged. Gas can be dangerous and if there are any concerns relating to gas installations, call a gas engineer.

Southsea based gas engineers include Farrell Heating of 10 Wisborough Road, Southsea, Hampshire Tel. 07935473445 and DW Gas and Heating of 1, Livingstone Road, Southsea, Hampshire Tel. 07891609282.

Damage resulting from flooding

What's the danger of flooding in Southsea. Can a building survey consider flooding?

Burst dams, poor drainage and tidal activity can all result in extensive water damage caused by flooding, and the value of a property in an at-risk area may be impacted. The Environment Agency maintain a flood warning service, with regular updated risk assessments.

Flood water can enter a residence through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls.

Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. correctly installed window and door frames. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a survey report if the residential surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the residence is at risk.
