HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Walderslade and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Walderslade property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make significant alterations, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap however it will give an in-depth analysis of the Walderslade property's condition as well as including advice on defects and maintenance options .

If in doubt why not obtain a Walderslade Survey Quote on our site or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a survey include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as reconstructing permanent outbuildings) and how does the surveyor work it out?

The Homebuyer Report contains a valuation as well as a cost of reinstatement included in the cost of the survey. To be able to determine the property's value your surveyor will take into account in depth understanding of the Walderslade market and other considerations about the property e.g. number of bedrooms. The surveyor will also consider construction methods and will draw upon key assumptions, for example there would be no cause to alter the valuation revealed by inspecting parts not inspected.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Please call for information. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. It will also be assumed that there aren't any costly legal issues for example the tenure being as indicated (e.g leasehold). Advice should be sought from your legal representative.

Further Walderslade assumptions, for example connection to sewers, are made in addition to Walderslade environmental concerns like the property being underneath a flight path, which will also be factored in.

Gas flame

Does the surveyor advise on the state of the gas installations?

Yes. A chartered surveyor will locate and visually examine the easily accessible parts of the system. The survey will include gas heaters as part of the survey, as well as gas connected fittings like flue/chimney maintenance. However, the Walderslade RICS surveyor will not remove external fittings or housings and he or she won't carry out any tests on the appliances or system. Most people are aware that gas is potentially fatal, if you have any concerns about gas, call a gas safe engineer.

Regulations stipulate that all landlords have to conduct appliance and installation inspections annually and punishments for failure to comply are harsh .

Landfill site near home

What should we be worried about when purchasing a flat close to a landfill site

Sites used for landfill take many forms e.g. industrial rubbish disposal. Nobody would want to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Worries include chemicals like dioxins. Health problems for example birth defects have been associated with landfill sites .

Surveyors will notice structural defects linked to the site. Your lawyer will carry out conveyancing and environmental searches of the British Geological data sets in addition to Tonbridge and Malling Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .
