Why should I consider buying a property in Southampton?

Southampton is a thriving city by the sea, where there is always something new to discover. It boasts a huge range of amenities including two large shopping centres, independent shops, galleries, cinemas, theatres, restaurants, pubs, cafes, a cruise port, a ferry port, railway stations, bus stations, an international airport, good schools and two universities.

While London is in easy reach via road or rail, The New Forest is right on your doorstep and The Isle of Wight is just a ferry trip away. Whatever your interests and occupation, there is something for everyone to seek out and enjoy.

If you’re planning a move to the area, there is a great range of properties in Southampton, from deluxe modern flats to Victorian and Georgian homes. Whatever kind of property you’re considering, make sure you ask a trusted surveyor in Southampton to create an appropriate report before signing on the dotted line.

HomeBuyers Survey Southampton

For properties built in the past 100 years, you don’t necessarily need an in-depth survey. Often, if the property hasn’t had major alterations, a HomeBuyer Report (Survey) is the least expensive option and will highlight serious, non-structural problems to put your mind at rest.

If this sounds exactly what you might need, our expert surveyors in Southampton can carry out an industry-recognised RICS Level 2 Survey with two options:

HomeBuyer Report (Survey) or HomeBuyer Report (Survey and Valuation). Both options provide you with a thorough report using a traffic light rating system to highlight potential problems, including:

·       background information on the property and setting

·       assessment of the key building elements

·       a review of any timber/damp issues

·       a review of drainage and insulation

With this report you will learn about the property and any issues that may require repairs or affect the value. If you opt for the HomeBuyer Report (Survey), we provide all the same information as above but also include a market valuation and insurance rebuild cost. This is valuable information for a lot of reasons, including seeing if the asking price is fair.

Whichever HomeBuyer’s Survey in Southampton you choose, you will gain important information about the property you’re considering as you proceed. Our reports are jargon-free, colour coded and filled with information and advice. If you need any help at all, we are always on hand to answer your questions.


Building Survey Report Southampton 

When you think of a house survey, you’ve likely got a RICS Level 3 Building Survey in mind. This kind of report is also known as a structural survey and is more expensive than other options due to its thoroughness. It includes:

·       a description of all visible defects

·       photographs to illustrate our findings

·       details of 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

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

Although there are plenty of properties in the area that don’t need this level of investigation, any old, large or extensively altered homes should get a Building Survey Report in Southampton. This is also a good idea if you are planning major renovations yourself.

Home Condition Report Southampton

At the other end of the scale when it comes to surveys is the Level 1 Survey or Home Condition Report. This is the most basic, usually least expensive option if you’re considering a newer property.

It’s always sensible to conduct checks before committing to a property. Getting a trusted surveyor Southampton to look for structural problems and give a simple overview with traffic light ratings is a fantastic way to put your mind at rest before you proceed.

Limited Defect Report Southampton

Moving away from full surveys, limited defect reports are a great choice if you’d like professional advice about something specific. Cracks in walls, infestations, uneven roofs and damp are all examples of the kinds of things we investigate on behalf of our clients.

Drawing on years of local experience and industry knowledge, we offer full diagnostic surveys and recommendations on the next steps. Clients find this extremely helpful when deciding if a problem is superficial or a sign of something serious that needs immediate attention.

Party Wall Surveying Southampton

Something that clients don’t always immediately associate with surveyors is the ability to help with disputes about property borders. If you or your neighbour are planning works at or near your border, it could be worth talking to us. Skilled in The Party Wall Etc. Act 1996, our reports can help ease tensions and settle arguments.
