HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Tadley and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Tadley property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any works or an extension on the property, you should you book a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it does give you a thorough analysis of the Tadley property's condition along with information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Will the qualified surveyor advise on the safety of the gas supply?

A local surveyor will visually check out the easily accessible parts of the system. A surveyor will want to inspect the location of the meter for example, as well as gas related installations e.g. flue/chimney maintenance. The Tadley chartered surveyor won't actually remove any external fittings or housings and will not run any tests on the system. Most people are aware that gas can be fatal, should there be any worries relating to gas installations, call a gas engineer.

Stone block wall damage

I am purchasing a Tadley house and the vendor has informed us that it has been built with Wooton stone. What should we be particularly aware of?

External wall maintenance is essential to the health of houses in Tadley. The problems which can plague poorly maintained stone vary considerably. Stone quarried in the area is common to local houses in Tadley, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county. Buyers should consider that stone can have a great effect on the long-term viability of a property or extension, resulting in higher repair costs in future. For example, granite is more water resistant that most other stones. Advice for better upkeep will vary according to the needs of individual property, such as careful removal of nearby trees and plants. Be careful not to pull these up by the roots, as they could already be intertwined with the wall's foundations, which will cause more damage. Purchasers renovating houses in Tadley should be aware that the British Geological Survey's GeoReport includes a stone matching service. To source stone quarried in Tadley, you can contact local suppliers.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Manor Farm Chalk Pit, Manor Farm, Monk Sherborne, Basingstoke, Hampshire, RG26 5HW, quarrying Chalk, for details. Call 01256 850880 for more information.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We saw evidence of there are no cracks in the brickwork outside, but kitchen floor dips noticeably when we last viewed the house. How could this affect the property, and what can be done to fix subsidence if it is identified?

Movement of a home on a structural level is called subsidence. Buyers in Tadley should be aware, however, that there is a difference between subsidence and benign settlement. In some older homes cracks become apparent when temperatures rise that close up in the Winter when the materials absorb moisture.

Soil on sloping ground is not as stable as that flat ground and could then become unsteady and slip down the incline. Signs of potential subsidence include sticking doors or windows.

The root cause of any subsidence must be found before repairs can commence. Any further movement, or risk of movement, must be halted. Damaged but non-structural elements should be filled and re-weatherproofed. Specialist geological and drain surveys may also be required as the movement of soil can sometimes crack drains or water mains.
