Top tips for a Fleet Home Buyers Survey


Fleet is an affluent town in north Hampshire and is a commuter town for many London workers. It developed largely when the railway arrived in 1840, the same year that the Christ Church parish church was built.

There are few very old buildings in Fleet and most of the town has formed around some Victorian buildings such as All Saint's Church, built c. 1862. Much building occurred between the 1st and 2nd World Wars, with many semi-detached and terrace houses being built.

Building picked up again in the 1960s and then from the mid-1970s onwards, new areas such as Ancells Farm and Zebon Copse were built. Elvetham Heath was completed in 2008 and has added around 3,500 to Fleet's population.

Properties in Fleet built in close proximity to some of the feeders and tributaries of the Basingstoke Canal and Gelvert Bottom, in streets such as Tamworth Drive and Avondale Road, 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).
Properties in some areas of Fleet may be affected by overhead power lines or mobile phone masts.

A recent environmental search carried out for a property in Old Dairy Close, Fleet GU51 3SJ, revealed that there were overhead power lines or mobile phone masts located within 250m of the dwelling.

Overhead power lines and phone masts can be contentious and additionally may have a visual impact on the surrounding area.
Properties in some areas of Fleet may be affected by environmental constraints.

A recent environmental search carried out for a property in Kukri Gardens, Church Crookham, Fleet GU52 8EU revealed that the property was within 250m of an area likely to be impacted by environmental constraints. These included Ancient Woodland: Soanes/Wood Copses.

Areas which have been designated as having environmental or historical importance may impose constraints on property or land developments or alterations.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

Our RICS Surveyor, during a Home Buyers Survey in Fleet, inspects both the inside and the outside of your property and searches in particular for subsidence, damp, infestations and any cracks or other damage to the property.

The procedure, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is non-intrusive.

NB If you're a first time buyer, you might wish to click on What is a House Survey to find out more, including what happens during the inspection.

If your Home Buyers Survey highlights concerns relating to any of these defects your surveyor explains what the issue is in detail and provides a recommendation as to what you should do to further investigate. An example of this is if your surveyor spots signs of damp within the property. Over 5,000 properties a week in the UK have damp proofing laid to combat the issue of rising damp and home buyers fear seeing mould, peeling wall paper and sodden floors as these are all tell-tale signs of rising damp.

If your property is showing these signs and your surveyor notes using their damp monitor that there is damp internally they'll advise you to get a damp specialist to attend the property, confirm the issue advising whether it is rising damp and quote for the costs in repairing with damp proofing.

If you're looking at buying a home in Fleet which is showing signs of damp, or any other defects then you MUST get a Home Buyers Survey. The costs for repairing the defects can run into thousands of pounds; however, If you can identify the problem before you purchase then you can get quotes for fixing it and either share the costs with the seller, or, in worst case examples, choose not to proceed.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

When you buy a home with a mortgage your Mortgage Lender requires you to get a mortgage valuation to assess how much your property is actually worth. You have to pay for this survey and often you may think this is also a structural assessment to identify defects. Sadly the mortgage valuation is just for the mortgage lender which means you need to get your own independent survey of the property that's caught your eye in Fleet to make sure there aren't any defects.

There is some confusion as the mortgage valuation is often referred to as a survey and so many buyers assume this is what is meant by 'have you done your survey?' It is important that when buying a property in Fleet that you arrange your own HomeBuyers Survey that reports on defects or potential issues with the property. The two types of HomeBuyers survey to choose from are the HomeBuyers Report or the Building Survey. Buying without a survey could leave you exposed to any repair costs or defects that you didn't spot. The costs of underpinning a property due to subsidence run into the £10,000s so it is important to get a survey to check for this type of defect. Get your HomeBuyers Survey - call 01252 560 064.
