About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Kempsey

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Kempsey and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Kempsey property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out major works, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it does give exhaustive analysis of the Kempsey property's condition as well as advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing in Kempsey. What will we need to pay attention to when purchasing a building constructed in 1790? What consequences will the architecture have on regular maintenance?

Older construction methods and materials can create issues for homeowners. Property built using traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be expensive to repair. You should consider that specialist knowledge may be needed. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced. If the residence you are buying may require specialist maintenance, contact the building surveyor for more detail.

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a Kempsey chartered surveyor investigate signs of flooding damage?

It is estimated that over two million properties are at a high risk of flooding damage. Both home buyers and home owners in areas at a high risk of flooding are right to be worried. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes.

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a Kempsey home, such as via door frames. Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the Kempsey home or on adjacent sites, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.

Landfill site near home

What should I be fearful of if buying a maisonette proximate to a rubbish landfill

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste e.g. domestic waste material. Understandably, no one wants to live near one (most people do live under 2km away from one). Risks might include leaking underground tanks from petrol stations for example .

Building Surveys and valuations in Kempsey will examine any structural issues linked to the landfill. Your legal representative will commission environmental searches of the Landmark database as well as Malvern Hills Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Should we look into drainage? If there is work that needs to be done, will they be inconvenient to fix?

Despite England's reputation for wet weather the effect which rain has on property in Kempsey is not considered. One indication that drainage systems are blocked is flaking or efflorescence on external walls. Poor drainage can lead to a damp or flooded cellar.

Luckily, issues with rainwater goods are quite easy to resolve for a reasonable cost. If untreated or poorly maintained, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.
