About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Faversham

HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Faversham and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is essentially the same.

If the Faversham property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Faversham property's state of repair as well as including information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any considerations we would be advised to check on if planning to buy a period property in Faversham in conservation area ?

There are 9, 300 of conservation areas in the UK, responsibility for which lies with local councils. Faversham surveyors need to possess relevant knowledge of relevant local area factors and any relation may have on the home. Property values will likely be inflated due to conservation areas retaining their original character. However a growing number are falling into shoddy condition for example - badly maintained and potholed roads and pavements

Surveyors can be expected to note whether the location is/might be so designated and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Faversham Homebuyer Report will advise additional enquiries are conducted during the conveyancing process. Out of keeping changes to the property may be reported in the Faversham survey, however these should be investigated by your lawyer.

Damaged Render

What will the Chartered Surveyor look out for on a stucco coated detached house in Faversham that I intend to purchase.

Stucco is actually a smooth and flat render. Commonly stucco is applied to underlying red brick hardens to form a smooth and even finish. The coating is highly attractive and is/was found on Victorian and Georgian properties for example. Stucco is often prone to defect and Surveyors commonly reveal defects which can include trapped water resulting in the surface breaking. Other potential problems might involve sulphate attack from salts derived from wet brickwork. Fixing problems can be surprisingly expensive as the skills are becoming rarer.

Building Surveys on flats 1

Should I pay a higher price for a full structural survey on a flat in Faversham?

The Full Structural Survey has a new title and is now called the Building Survey. If you are planning to buy a modified Faversham flat e.g. an older flat - this is now the best choice of home survey. It spells out comprehensive and often critical insight on the property's condition on top of any important technical details, following a thorough inspection of any accessible parts. Also flats add complexity. - so the surveyor can only look into the actual flat although he/she go into detail about other tenant shared sections of the property like shared hallways.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Can I get an independent and professional valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of reconstructing a retaining wall) and how is it calculated?

Faversham Homebuyer Reports a property valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as standard. To ascertain the correct valuation the surveyor will relate to local Faversham market factors and other things relating to the property e.g. size. The surveyor will also consider style of architecture and will use key assumptions e.g. the ground is not land filled. 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 significant legal problems such as the tenure being as indicated (e.g leasehold). These will be investigated by your legal representative.

Additional local Faversham area assumptions, such as use of communal grounds or problematic roads and access, are made as well as any significant local environmental issues like busy roads, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what effect should heavy rainfall have on our new property? Will the HomeBuyer Report give details on this? Could it affect the property value?

I find it odd that rain and the effect it can have on buildings are often overlooked by buyers. If you have only been to the home in on a sunny day, defects may not have been obvious. The good news is that this is generally easy to repair.
