HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Warsash and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same.

If the Warsash property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any major works, you should you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Warsash property's general condition as well as including advice on structural defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a Building survey in Warsash include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for rebuilding a garage) and how is it calculated?

A Homebuyer Report in Warsash will include a valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate. To estimate an accurate estimate of the value of the building the valuer will factor in awareness of the Warsash property market and other considerations about the property for instance: square metres The RICS surveyor will also consider materials used and will make certain other assumptions like there are no damaging materials. Surveyors will disregard certain things like sales incentives.

Further area assumptions, for example services, are made in addition to any Warsash environmental issues like intrusive noises or smells, which will also be factored in.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Is clay soil an issue in Warsash? Will my Warsash Property Survey look into this?

Soil composition can have a great impact on a property. 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. Expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a property's foundations, forcing them inward. Where the foundation walls have insufficient support, they will bow and crack. This can result in costly and even dangerous structural damage. Steps like even minor landscaping so that the ground slopes away from the property can help maintain clay-rich soil, but a purchaser should discuss specifics with the surveyor if extensive upkeep is warranted.

Gas flame

Will the qualified surveyor examine the condition or the safety of the gas appliances?

Your qualified surveyor will locate and visually examine the accessible parts of the system. This means things like whether the meter is in an escape route for instance, as well as gas related fixtures like chimney linings. Your Warsash qualified surveyor will not remove any fittings and will not conduct any tests of any kind on the system or appliances. Gas is potentially dangerous, should there be any worries about gas fittings or if you smell gas, call an engineer.
