HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Westgate on Sea and which one is the cheapest?

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

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

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey.

Traditionally built property

What should we look out for when purchasing an old building in Westgate on Sea? What effect will the property's cladding have on regular maintenance?

Many purchasers would be interested in owning a home with character, such as a Georgian terrace. Vernacular, or traditional, architecture, however, can concern buyers, and Houses featuring traditional methods can be challenging to repair. You should bear in mind that specialist expertise may be needed. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of Westgate on Sea listed buildings. This may mean that it is all the more vital that you get a building survey prior to exchanging.

Conservation area

Are there any things we would be advised to be aware of if intending to buy a converted flat in Westgate on Sea in the vicinity of conservation area ?

There are thousands of conservation areas in the UK which are governed by local authorities. Your surveyor need to have knowledge of local area issues and any effect may have with the home and its value. Property Prices are usually higher which is down to them retaining their original character. However many have fallen into a state for example - ugly satellite dishes

Surveyors will tell you whether the building is possibly in a conservation area and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Westgate on Sea Homebuyer Report will suggest suitable questions are conducted by your conveyancer. Unconsented adjustments that do not have Local Authority approval should be noted but these are really more a investigated by the solicitor. Barnes Marsland are a local firm situated at 51 Hawley Square, Thanet, Kent, CT9 1NY and should be prepared to help. Tel: 01843 221466

Damage resulting from flooding

We are intending to buy a house in Westgate on Sea, does the house surveyor look for indications of flooding?

The impact of flooding, both in the region of Westgate on Sea and nationwide, is a serious concern for owners, and house purchasers and owners are understandably concerned. The Environment Agency maintain a flood alert service, with regular updated risk assessments, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures.

Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the seller, but this information may not be accurate.
