Top tips for a Farnborough Home Buyers Survey


Farnborough's housing and buildings are predominantly modern and redevelopment has been continual. Exceptions include the The Tumble Down Dick Pub, which has been present on the A325 Farnborough Road since the 17th century, and Saint Michael's Abbey, a Benedictine abbey built in 1881.

North Camp was once Farnborough's town centre in Victorian times; it still has a number of Victorian properties. Cove is another part of the town and consists of a large housing estate built in the 30s and later. The Ship Inn on Ship Lane is 'several centuries old'.

Properties in Farnborough which are built in close proximity to the Cove Brook, including in streets such as West Heath Road and Giffard Drive, are in areas which are subject to flood alerts from time to time.

If you are concerned that a property you are looking to buy is in a flood risk area, you should consider getting a flood risk report (click for more details).
A RICS Building Surveyor won't complete an intrusive inspection of the footings of a property in Farnborough within a standard Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report. It is important to note that if there are signs of subsidence at the property then you may well have to instruct a Structural Engineer or a Chartered Building Surveyor

It is important that your buildings insurance policy provides cover against subsidence of the site if this can be arranged (some insurers now exclude such cover).
PVCu framed windows are often found in properties in Farnborough; especially on newly built properties.

In a recent Building Survey in Prospect Road, Farnborough, Hants, GU14 0EE, the PVCu windows were in satisfactory condition, however occasional maintenance would be required to keep catches and hinges in working order. If seals fail, it will lead to condensation or misting between the panes. If this occurs, the only remedy is to replace the affected panes.

Why can’t I have a Building Survey on a flat?

As a rule, flats/maisonettes/post 1950s standard construction properties are best suited to HomeBuyer Reports.

The surveyor has substantially less to check and remark upon when surveying these types of property, additionally more modern buildings benefit from better construction techniques in the main.

To carry out a full Building Survey on a property such as this would be overkill, whereas a Homebuyer Report is designed for and is more than adequate for completing the task and, most importantly, for reporting any signs or suspicions of defects.
