Properties in Petersfield built close to the Tilmore Brook, in streets such as North Road and Grenehurst Way, are in an area where flood alerts are issued 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).
Your RICS surveyor inspects drains during a survey of a property in Petersfield, where the drain cover is accessible and on the site of the property.

If the drains are blocked you may need to employ a drainage company to inspect the drains with CCTV and then clear them, such as ASL, 21 Collingwood Way, Ramshill, Petersfield GU31 4QJ.
Solar energy is one of several alternative energy sources; however, the location of a solar farm can be contentious due to its visual impact on the surrounding area.

A recent environsearch has shown that a propery on Charlton Drive, Petersfield, GU31 4QL, is within 2km of existing or proposed solar farms.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A RICS Home Buyers Survey is a visual inspection of the grounds and the internal/external structure of the property and identifies defects such as cracks or damage to the structure of the property, subsidence, damp and infestations.

Some of these defects you may not even see or know what to look for which makes getting a Home Buyers Survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, incredibly important when you are considering buying a home in Petersfield.

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 Petersfield 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.

What is included in a Building Survey?

The Royal institute of Chartered Surveyors provides guidance on what you can expect to have included in your survey report.

The main areas included in the inspection are assessments for signs of subsidence, testing for damp, a review of drains and a loft and roof space inspection.

Checks are also made to identify any signs of asbestos or infestation which may require further specialist checks.

Utilities are assessed and any recommendations made if any concerns about age and condition are identified.

Testing of equipment cannot be carried out as tests can only be carried out by qualified specialists such as plumbers or electricians based locally in Petersfield.

The surveyor provides recommendations in the legal section of the report which should be passed to the legal adviser carrying out the conveyancing to ensure any necessary enquiries are raised with the vendor’s solicitor.
