Which Home Survey is the right choice?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Whiteley

    A RICS Homebuyer Report is the best choice when buying a home made of conventional materials such as brick & tile, in reasonable repair and not over 100 years in age.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Whiteley

    The Building Survey (often referred to as a Full Structural Survey in Whiteley) will also be carried out by a MRICS/FRICS surveyor and is more detailed. Opt for this option for non standard e.g. stone wall or older buildings.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Whiteley

    This is an impartial valuation . It is typically chosen by cash buyers or anyone needing a formal valuation e.g. a dispute.

HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Whiteley and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is essentially the same survey.

If the Whiteley property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out substantial modifications, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it does provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Whiteley property's state of repair and it includes advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller has mentioned there is a danger of asbestos cement being found in the building. Why would there be asbestos and can it be treated?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous material. Some types were commonly found in the building materials for example asbestos blocks.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has excellent fire retarding properties, it may be found in asbestos packing in stud walls.

All forms are carcinogenic and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Contrary to common perception, inhaling a one fibre will not kill you.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered however, never to move asbestos. Professional advice must be taken ASAP. Professional removal of asbestos will probably be costly but must be completed by professionals. Whiteley Surveyors will not verify the presence of asbestos as part of the survey. Your Whiteley surveyor should report on possible asbestos risks and will suggest further investigation.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I have read that clay soil can create issues for homes in Whiteley. Can a Home Survey investigate this?

Clay soil-related issues can work slowly over many years, or can arise without warning after a bout of extreme weather or flooding. Given the moisture content does have such a great affect of clay-rich soil, owners should be aware that defects can arise if environmental conditions change. Visible results may be anything from minor wall cracks in the drawing room to a difficult-to-open drawing room window. Fortunately, there are steps a home owner can take. Your surveyor should refer to maintenance options in their report, like after flooding or heavy rain, checking for standing water around the building. In some more extreme cases, the building foundations may need extra support, but this can be costly.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

What suggestions can a Whiteley property surveyor make for houses constructed with English bond walls?

Brick-constructed flats in Whiteley feature several advantages over buildings using regular cut stone, but they can also suffer from various issues and defects. This could be anything from cracks to efflorescence. Your surveyor in Whiteley can investigate these as part of their report, with advice on the consequences were they to go untreated. An issue often addressed by surveyors in the region is damp and water damage resulting from gaps in uneven brickwork. Contact several local builders for quotes, including Joy C R A of 97 Wessex Est, Ringwood, BH24 1XD on 01425 476889.

Buyers in Whiteley should consider that a number of approaches and materials have been used across the country for centuries. This being the case, upkeep may not always be straightforward. Consider renegotiating the price of the Whiteley property, based on the results of your survey. Works to remedy even some superficial brick wall defects can be both expensive and disruptive.
