About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Romney

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Romney and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same.

If the Romney property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out an extension, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it does provide you with a thorough analysis of the Romney property's state of repair as well as information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Window frame

On the HomeBuyer Report, can you give examples of an red light rating defects affecting windows?

A condition rating of three is used to emphasise the most crucial repairs. Defects marked in red may also need further inspection by an expert, where asbestos is suspected to have been used in the property's construction. The format of the RICS HomeBuyer Report is clear and easy to read, with a minimum of technical jargon. Green, orange and red ratings are an indication of the severity of defects uncovered during the survey. Where practicable, all windows are to be opened and closed, but not forced open, and vulnerable areas closely examined. The surveyor should make notes and advise the client whether it is possible to operate the window transoms/openings satisfactorily. An inadequate weatherstrip on a window is an example.

Damage resulting from flooding

When intending to buy in Romney, should we be anxious about a flood risk, and will the RICS surveyor inquire into any flood damage?

The lives of many homeowners in Romney and across the UK have been affected by flood damage, and home purchasers cannot know that insurance against flooding will continue to be available. It is strongly recommended that action is taken, before flooding occurs.

Flood water can enter a property through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls. Details relating to signs of flooding may be reported in Section J of the HomeBuyer Report. The Environment Agency also publish details of previous flood warnings.

Conservation area

Are there any factors I should look out for if buying a converted house in Romney inside a conservation area ?

There are around ten thousand official conservation areas in England and Wales which are designated by the local authority. Your surveyor must have knowledge of relevant local considerations and any bearing they have on the home and its value. Values will likely be enhanced which is down to conservation areas being largely unspoilt

Surveyors will tell you if the planned purchase might be is designated and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Homebuyer Report will recommend suitable questions are raised by the solicitor or conveyancer. Unauthorised modifications to the building may be noted, however these should be concern for your conveyancer.
