HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Meopham and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Meopham property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any an extension on the Meopham property, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Meopham property's state of repair as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

For more details you can get a Meopham Home Survey Quote via our website or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Conservation area

Are there any concerns we would be advised to look out for when purchasing a flat in Meopham in conservation area ?

There are thousands official conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are overseen by the local authority. Surveyors in Meopham must possess knowledge of local considerations and any relation may have with the property. Property Prices is, more often than not, higher because of them being largely unspoilt

RICS surveyors are trained to report whether the building is or might be within a conservation area and Section I of your Homebuyer Report will advise additional enquiries are raised by your solicitor. Unsympathetic extensions to the building may be noted in the survey but these are really more a investigated by the solicitor.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Damp in the attic has created issues for us in the past. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. What does the home surveyor investigate during the survey?

This often causes anxiety for buyers with a roofing 'horror story' from a previous home. Many residential properties can be blighted by roofing problems, such as. From dormers to wind braces, many parts of the roof and loft will be considered. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like badly installed felting.

Roof repairs need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A building survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will be facing. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.

However, buyers should endeavour to compare a number of quotes to find the best deal.

Gas flame

Will the RICS surveyor go into detail on the state of repair of the gas flues?

A RICS chartered surveyor will locate and visually survey any accessible parts of the system. This means things like the location of the meter for instance, as well as gas connected gas fittings in the home like chimney linings. Your Meopham local surveyor won't remove gas fittings and surveyors are not qualified to run any tests of any kind on the appliances or system. Of course, gas can be deadly, if you have any worries about gas, call a gas engineer.
