HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Snodland and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Snodland property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out alterations, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, however it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Snodland property's general condition as well as more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Snodland, and think we saw signs of pests in the living room. What can we do?

Scare stories about building pests are plentiful, it is tempting to treat signs of pests such as moths as minor annoyances. This issue should be taken seriously. An affected building may not always be easy to identify. As an example, mice are able to squeeze through even small gaps and holes, and quickly spread disease through their droppings. Remedies can take time, so if you opt to proceed with the purchase, check with a specialist how long treatment will take. The property surveyor

may include notes on any signs of vermin or other pests in their report. It is, however, advisable that specific worries you may have be raised ASAP.

Shocking Electrics

When I visited a sixties house I am planning to acquire, it looked like there were damaged electrical sockets; does the surveyor write anything on electrical defects?

When preparing a Snodland Home Survey your RICS surveyor will usually make a note on the state of the electrics if it is clear that the electrics are in a less than satisfactory condition. This will include a non invasive look-over of any revealed sections of the wiring in addition to areas e.g. inspecting any external or remote installations like out building lighting. .

Examining the evidence of any recent PIR carried out by a suitably qualified electrician on the property being surveyed should usually form part of the survey. Looking at any documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical installations conducted by a suitably qualified electrician should form part of the survey.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Do we need to check drainage?

Despite England's reputation for wet weather the effect which high levels of rainfall has on a residence is overlooked. If you have visited the house in the Summer, problems are unlikely to be visible.

These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to resolve for a reasonable cost. If not cared for, however, the damage will impact both the home's value, and the residents' enjoyment of the property.
