HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Herne Bay and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is effectively the same survey.

If the Herne Bay property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap however it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Herne Bay property's state of repair as well as including more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Should we get a full structural survey before purchasing a converted Victorian cottage in Herne Bay?

Structural surveys are now called Building Surveys. The HomeBuyer Report is sufficient for a mid 20th century of later Herne Bay house of conventional building materials. A Building Survey is certainly the suitable survey to opt for the property mentioned. After an exhaustive inspection of the accessible parts of the house, the chartered surveyors report will be emailed and posted to the prospective purchaser summarising comprehensive and crucial insight about the materials used for the construction of the home. There are certain limitations exist with any residential survey - a local Herne Bay surveyor will not be able to open up the structure of the building nor can they inspect no ladder available for flat roofs. Outside buildings will, in addition, be reported on.

House Prices

I would like to purchase a property in Herne Bay (CT6). The asking price is £177, 994. What different issues will your Herne Bay qualified surveyor evaluate on a professional valuation ?

There are a huge number of issues that can affect the price of property from the length of lease to whether the property is listed. It is useful to analyse flat values achieved in Herne Bay at the same time for similar properties. The average flat price registered at the Land Registry in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £158, 994, which is £19, 000 less than the amount being asked. The house/flat average was £199, 991. 60A, Beltinge Road, Herne Bay, Canterbury, Kent, CT6 6BJ a leasehold flat recently sold for £170, 000 .

The most cost effective way for you to get a formal property valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) by default. Your local surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (established register of valuers).

A local surveyor should make a site visit to the property in addition to allowing for the multiple area variables that can impact on property values.

Deteriorated timber

In a Herne Bay HomeBuyer Report what does 'E8 - Other joinery and finishes' cover?

This section includes visual aspects of the roof, checked with the aid of binoculars where appropriate. Any timber or PVC cladding fixed to the main walling will be investigated. Moisture penetration in stucco is an example.

RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property, unlike some more complex survey reports. Three colour coded ratings give an understanding of to what extent any problems or notable points may negatively impact the property. Not inspected' is used to indicate those subsections of Section E which do not apply to the home. RICS have mandated a specific format for the HomeBuyer Report to aid the creation of a useful and comprehensive report for both surveyors and home buyers. As a result, some sections may not be relevant to every property, such as reporting on the condition of the roof of a ground floor flat.
