Why should I consider buying a property in Alresford?

Alresford is a delightful market town on the edge of the South Downs National Park. Popular with residents and visitors alike, it has been named No 1 Best Place to live in the Countryside by The Sunday Times and voted Country Life’s ‘Favourite Market Town’ in the south-east.

There is a true community spirit, making this a wonderful place for all stages of life. For those with children, there are great local schools including one infant, one junior and one secondary school. As a resident, make sure you get involved with the regular local events such as the annual agricultural show, fair, watercress festival, bonfire night and duck race.

Events aside, there is plenty to keep everyone occupied in Alresford. The tea rooms are a lovely place to relax and meet friends while the boutique shops and regular markets will keep your cupboards stocked with everything you need. Meanwhile, the heritage Watercress Line draws train fans of all ages from near and far, especially for special events such as when Thomas the Tank Engine is in town.

When it comes to property in the area, Alresford has been shaped by its past. Although it was founded in the 12th/13th century, it had to be extensively rebuilt in the 18th century after several fires devastated the town. Many beautiful Georgian buildings remain and the colour-washed frontages make for postcard-pretty streets.

If you are thinking of purchasing property in the area, book a house survey Alresford to ensure there are no unforeseen problems or unexpected expenses. At Trinity Rose, we have a broad portfolio having spent years working here. We know which issues to look out for and draw upon local insight to help inform our reports.

HomeBuyers Survey Alresford

Alresford has a great range of properties from different eras. Most notable are probably the stunning Georgian homes which replaced older buildings in the 18th century.

In whatever era the property was built, it is essential to investigate any potential problems before committing to a purchase. A homebuyers survey in Alresford will highlight any issues so that you don’t overpay for your property and don’t face any unexpected costs or surprises.

 

At Trinity Rose Surveyors Alresford, we have years of local experience in this area. We offer a nationally recognised RICS Level 2 Survey with two options: HomeBuyer Report (Survey) or HomeBuyer Report (Survey and Valuation). Both options will highlight serious problems, but don’t go into structural detail. That makes them a great choice for newer buildings (built in the past 100 years) that have not been significantly altered.  

 

If you book a HomeBuyer Report (Survey), you will learn about the condition of the property. We will highlight anything that may impact on the property’s value including serious or urgent problems that may require 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

A HomeBuyer Report (Survey and Valuation) is identical to above, but also includes a market valuation and insurance rebuild cost. Clients find this information helpful when deciding whether or not to negotiate on price.

Whichever option you decide is right for you, your report will be presented using a thorough yet simple ‘traffic light’ condition rating system. It is comprehensive, jargon-free and easy to understand. Plus, if you do have any questions, our friendly team are always on hand to help, putting your mind at ease as you progress with your purchase.

 

 

Building Survey Report Alresford

If your heart is set on one of the area’s stunning Georgian properties then it is likely an in-depth RICS Level 3 Building Survey is the right choice for you. This is also the case if you are interested in a house that is old, large, substantially altered, built unconventionally or from unusual materials, or you are planning significant changes yourself.

Many people know these kinds of surveys as Structural Surveys and they are the best way to comprehensively check a property before committing.

 

A Building Survey Report in Alresford with Trinity Rose details:

·       a description of all visible defects

·       photographs to illustrate our findings

·       serious problems and potentially dangerous conditions such as woodworm, dampness, subsidence and structural movement

·       any potential problems caused by hidden flaws

·       an outline of repair options

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

 

Home Condition Report Alresford

It is prudent to get a professional to carry out checks on a property before you buy, no matter how new or problem-free it appears. However, not all properties require the same level of inspection. A Level 1 Survey or Home Condition Report is your least expensive survey option, giving you peace of mind that there are no structural problems when buying a newer home.

When we carry out a Home Condition Report in Alresford, we create a simple overview to tell you more about the property. It includes traffic light ratings which are easy to understand and should give you everything you need to proceed confidently with your purchase.

 

Limited Defect Report Alresford

When people think about chartered surveyors, they often immediately think of Structural Surveys. However, we offer a range of other services including Limited Defect Reports, which investigate individual issues on your behalf.

If you have noticed a specific problem such as a crack, patch of damp, uneven roof or infestation, we can carry out a diagnostic survey including recommendations for next steps. Whether for your own home or a property you’re considering, a Limited Defect Report can be extremely helpful in judging the severity of an issue and guide you as you plan your next steps.

 

Party Wall Surveying Alresford

We hope that you usually get on with your neighbours. However, is isn’t uncommon for even the best of neighbours to fall out when works are planned at a border.

Our chartered surveyors in Alresford are experienced and skilled in The Party Wall matters. Act 1996 and are ready to step in if you’re having disputes or are concerned.

We are able to carry out impartial investigations whether you or your neighbour are planning works, which can be invaluable in keeping the peace on your street.
