HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Margate and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same.

If the Margate property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out significant alterations on the Margate property, you should you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Margate property's state of repair in addition to an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Is it best to upgrade to full structural survey before buying a doer-upper regency house in Margate?

Structural surveys have been renamed by RICS as Building Surveys. This is now the correct survey to choose when planning to buy an unconventional house e.g. a tatty house. This survey details in depth and relevant advice concerning the buildings construction materials and any technical details, following a thorough inspection of the inside and outside of the house. Check out the differences between what is and isn't included Survey comparison table.

Conservation area

Will there be any factors I would be advised to check out if purchasing a converted house in Margate inside a conservation area ?

There are thousands of conservation areas in England and Wales that are designated and monitored by local authorities. Margate surveyors need to possess knowledge of relevant local area issues and any effect may have with the property and its value. Values will be higher because of conservation areas retaining their original character. However many of them are falling into are falling into poor condition e.g. the unsightly effect of billboard advertising

Surveyors will report whether the property looks like it may be so designated and Section I of a Homebuyer Report will advise further investigations are conducted by your conveyancer.

Unauthorised extensions that do not have Local Authority approval will also be commented on but these are really more a concern for the solicitor.

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will insects affect the purchase price of a building in Margate - What should we do?

Margate properties will often be free of major vermin. However, if you do have specific concerns, you should seek advice. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months. As an example, mice are able to squeeze through even small gaps and holes, and quickly spread disease through their droppings. Remedies to pests can include removal or excision of affected timber.
