Top tips for a Andover Home Buyers Survey


Andover is a town in Hampshire and its development received a spur when the railway arrived in 1854. 

It has a large variety of properties, including pre-Georgian thatched cottages, such as in Abbotts Ann, large Georgian houses in Upper Clatford, detached Victorian houses in West Tytherley, 1920s bungalows in Stockbridge, modern semi-detached houses in Amport and many semi-detached houses and terrace properties built during the large municipal building projects which stretched from the 1950s to the 1980s.

New build developments include the detached houses in Olympic Park Road off Icknield Way.

Properties in Andover which are built in close proximity to the River Anton, in streets such as Bridge Street and Shepherds Spring Lane, are in an area where flood warnings and 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).
Some properties in Andover are located nearby to existing or proposed sites for solar farms.

A recent environmental search carried out for a property in South End Road for example, flagged up that the property was built within 2km of existing or proposed solar farms.

The location of wind farms or turbines can be contentious due to visual impact.
Some properties in Andover are located nearby to areas to be explored for their energy potential by the oil & gas industry – they must be licensed by the Oil and Gas Authority – and such exploration includes areas subject to hydraulic fracturing ("fracking") investigation.

A recent environmental search carried out for a property in South End Road for example, flagged up that the property was:

  • built within 4km of an area licensed for onshore energy exploration and production;
  • built within 4km of an area that has been offered for licensing for the onshore exploration of oil and gas by the Oil and Gas Authority; and
  • built within 4km of a well used for energy exploration or extraction.

If they find any issues during the inspection of your property in Andover, our surveyor will flag them up in the Home Buyers Survey and give you advice on what you should do to solve them. An example of this is where the surveyor finds evidence of woodworm infestation. 

If you are concerned about any other defects with the property you MUST get a Home Buyers Survey as the costs of repairing the defects can run into thousands of pounds.

Can I negotiate the price with the seller’s solicitor?

Within the survey report there will be a section for your legal advisor.

If there are any defects spotted at the property that require further attention it will be noted in this section of the report and your solicitor can flag these with in her enquiries.

Should there be any issues raised by your building surveyor that will be costly in the future, you can discuss options with the seller.

It’s typical to negotiate one of two resolutions: either the seller agrees to accept a lower offer price for the property, or they agree to carry out the required repairs as a condition of the sale.

In the latter case, this agreement would usually be confirmed in writing as part of the legal contract.

Make sure that all correspondence regarding negotiations with the sellers is agreed by both solicitors.
