About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Edenbridge

HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Edenbridge and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Edenbridge property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any alterations, you should you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Edenbridge property's general condition as well as including information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

We are purchasing a property in Edenbridge, does the chartered surveyor search for indications of water damage?

Soil-clogged drainage, rain and overflowing steams can all result in extensive flood damage, and buyers cannot know that insurance against flooding will continue to be available. A flood alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency. The Building Survey may also, where appropriate, advise on urgent repairs.Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. correctly installed window and door frames. The RICS surveyor will usually recommend that the buyers seek legal advice on any related information mentioned in the report.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

As well as reporting on condition, will I get a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for reconstructing permanent outbuildings) and what does it include?

Homebuyer Reports include an independent valuation as well as a rebuilding cost as part of the report. To estimate the correct valuation your independent surveyor will pair experience of property in Edenbridge as well as other factors relating to the property for instance: accommodation The surveyor will also consider construction methods and will make certain key assumptions like there are no damaging materials.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Additional local area conjectures, for example the property being insurable, are made in addition to environmental concerns like intrusive noises or smells, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing an older cottage in Edenbridge. What effect will the house's design have on repairs?

For traditionally-built Edenbridge property, age can be a cause of concern for would-be buyers, and Buildings employing traditional methods can be challenging to upkeep. You should bear in mind that expert knowledge may be needed, and it could also be necessary to find Materials suitable for the work. Built between 1400 and 1435, 94 High Street, Country Fair is an example of a traditional hall house in Edenbridge.

Gas flame

Will a RICS chartered surveyor give details on the state of the gas heaters?

A qualified RICS surveyor will locate and visually examine the accessible parts of the gas system. The survey will include the mains gas installation at the building, as well as gas affiliated fixtures e.g. associated asbestos. Should there be any external fittings they however, won't be undone. Gas is potentially unsafe and if there are any worries about gas fittings, contact a gas safe engineer.
