Home Buyers Survey in Hythe

HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Hythe and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Hythe property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any alterations, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Hythe property's state of repair as well as an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are planning to buy a home in Hythe and spotted that the sitting room floor dipped in one corner, could this be evidence of subsidence? What subsidence issues does the Surveyor report on?

Subsidence is movement in a house's foundations. In most situations, subsidence can be put right quite easily.

Cracks that appear suddenly may be a strong indication of subsidence. Signs of potential subsidence include doors and windows that are more difficult to open.

Learning the cause of any subsidence should be the first priority. Removing or even pruning the tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Damaged but non-structural elements should be filled and re-weatherproofed. Specialist geological and drain surveys may also be required as the movement of soil can sometimes crack drains or water mains.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I am looking for Flemish Stretcher bond advice - can a Hythe property surveyor assist? Are brick walls hard to repair?

Hythe brick-walled conversions can experience considerable issues, including weathering and cracks. An issue of particular concern is thermal movement, caused by more extreme temperature variation, and resulting in vertical cracks. T K Rowe Ltd may be able to give an estimate for any necessary upkeep. Contact them at 138 Suffolk Sq, Norwich, NR2 2BW or 07801 610474.

Examples of decorative or unusual usage of brick include adding other characterful elements of masonry, such as flushwork. It may be appropriate to renegotiate the price of a property if a survey reveals even superficial brick wall problems.

House Prices

There are many factors which could have a bearing on property values for example noise from flight paths or whether the property is sold under probate. It often helps to set against the prices of house achieved in Hythe at the same time for comparable properties.

The means house prices registered in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £260, 256, which is £8, 900 less than the asking price. The combined house/flat average was £251, 227. 3A, North Road, Hythe, Shepway, Kent, CT21 5UH a detached property was purchased for £114, 250 .
