About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Ash

HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Ash and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Ash property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make alterations, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, but it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Ash property's general condition as well as including advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is it recommended that we check guttering? Are repairs going to be expensive?

As a frequent surveyor of houses in the area, I find it strange that the effect which rainfall has on homes in Ash is not given enough thought. If you have only seen the property in good weather, obvious defects may be harder to find. Signs that downspouts are worth a closer look include damp stains around drainage. This could then result in damage to foundations.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to resolve, if caught early. However, if the drains are not maintained, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair.

Landfill site near home

What should we be aware of if buying a house close to Witcombe Lane Landfill Site on Ash and landfill sites generally

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste e.g. hazardous rubbish disposal. Thousands of sites affect hundreds of thousands of people in England and Wales including Ash. Worries include chemicals like dioxins. Potential health concerns for example spina bifida have been linked to landfill sites .

Ash RICS surveyors will flag up any structural problems connected with the landfill. Your legal representative will carry out environmental searches of the British Geological data sets in addition to Sevenoaks Local Authority and advise you .
