Why should I consider buying a property in Alton?

Alton is a charming, vibrant market town in East Hampshire. The area’s fascinating history surrounds you; in the buildings as you walk through the streets on market day; in the surrounding countryside which inspired Jane Austen; and in the exhibitions at the Museum of Iron Age coin hoards, prehistoric tools, Roman bowls and Anglo-Saxon artefacts found nearby.

With this rich history as a backdrop, Alton is now a thriving modern town with a good selection of shops, schools for all ages, sports centres, pubs and hotels. There’s a great community atmosphere, particularly noticeable at the regular fairs and markets. Meanwhile, the surrounding area offers great opportunities for getting close to nature.

Trains keep a regular schedule at the town’s station, with direct trains to London taking just over an hour. If steam locomotion is more your thing, you’ll be delighted to know that the heritage railway Watercress Line also terminates here. This attraction delights visitors from near and far, especially during special events such as Thomas the Tank Engine days.

Literature fans: be sure to visit nearby Chawton, Jane Austen’s house and a museum dedicated to her life and work. There are also several walking routes in the area taking in places of interest to Austen, as well as being lovely in their own right.

There is a broad selection of property in Alton, from old cottages and family homes filled with character to sleek and comfortable modern houses and flats. If you are interested in buying in the area, book a house survey Alton to make sure you encounter no nasty surprises or unforeseen costs once you complete.

 

HomeBuyers Survey Alton

Alton offers a fantastic range of properties for every taste. Whether the place that interests you was built ten or 110 years ago, it’s important to check for existing or potential problems before you sign on the dotted line. That way you can proceed with confidence that you’re paying the right price and won’t have any unexpected issues down the road.

At Trinity Rose Surveyors Alton, we offer a range of survey options and are experts in exactly this area. If the property you’re considering was built in the past 100 years, has not been significantly altered and you aren’t planning major works yourself, our nationally recognised RICS Level 2 Survey is a good choice. It highlights serious problems but won’t go into structural detail.

 

A HomeBuyer Report (Survey) reveals information about the condition of the property. We will be sure to highlight anything that may impact on the property’s value which includes details of serious or urgent problems demanding expensive repairs or specialist attention. The report includes:

·       background information on the property and setting

·       a review of any timber/damp issues

·       a review of drainage and insulation

·       assessment of the key building elements

 

We also offer the option to include a market valuation and rebuild cost in your report. This can be extremely helpful when buying a property and deciding whether or not to negotiate on price. A HomeBuyer Report (Survey and Valuation) includes everything above, plus these useful valuations.

Whichever option you choose, we’ll write your report using a simple yet thorough ‘traffic light’ condition rating system. It is a comprehensive but jargon-free way to convey our findings.

 

Building Survey Report Alton

With such a great range of properties in the area, you may find that you fall in love with something a bit unconventional. If your heart is set on a house that is old, large, substantially altered, built from unusual materials or in an unusual way, or you are planning big changes after you’ve got the keys, an in-depth RICS Level 3 Building Survey is likely to be a good idea.

 

Our surveyors in Alton regularly conduct these reports, also commonly known as Structural Surveys. They include comprehensive checks to put your mind at rest before committing to a huge purchase.

A Building Survey Report in Alton with Trinity Rose includes:

·       a description of all visible defects

·       photographs to illustrate our findings

·       a description of any serious problems and potentially dangerous conditions such as woodworm, dampness, subsidence and structural movement

·       details about any potential problems caused by hidden flaws

·       an outline of repair options

·       information on what might happen if you don’t follow the recommended actions

 

Home Condition Report Alton

Everyone knows that it’s wise to arrange for a survey before committing to a property purchase. However, you may not realise that there are different levels of survey, appropriate for different kinds of buildings.

While the Level 3 Survey is necessary for old or potentially problematic houses, at the other end of the scale in terms of reports is the Level 1 Survey or Home Condition Report in Alton. It is the least expensive option and perfect if the property you’re considering is a newer build.

When you book a Home Condition Report in Alton with us, we investigate the property and put together a simple overview. It will include traffic light ratings which are easy to understand but include everything you need to know in order to proceed with confidence.

 

Limited Defect Report Alton

As surveyors Alton, we do much more than carry out full house surveys. If you are concerned or want to better understand an individual property issue, we’re here to help.

Limited Defect Reports look into issues such as cracks in walls, patches of damp, uneven roofs, and even infestations, in order to judge their severity. Whether in your own property or somewhere you’re thinking of buying/renting, these reports can put your mind at rest or help you plan what needs to be done to remedy specific problems.

 

Party Wall Surveying Alton

We like to think that most people get on with their neighbours most of the time. However, even the best of neighbours might not see eye-to-eye when works are planned at their border.

If this is the case, it could be a good time to get some impartial, professional advice. Our chartered surveyors in Alton are skilled in The Party Wall Etc. Act 1996 which can be useful when issues arise.

Whether it’s you or your neighbour planning works, we can carry out investigations which may help settle party wall disagreements and keep the peace.
