About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Kenley

HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Kenley and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Kenley property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, you should you select a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap but it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Kenley property's general condition as well as advice on defects and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The estate agent stated there is a possibility of asbestos boards around radiators affecting the property. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a harmful fibrous mineral. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and were commonly found in the building materials e.g. walls. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has characteristic sound absorption properties, it may be found in wall panelling. Technically all forms are hazardous and may lead to lung cancer or pleural disease following prolonged exposure.

If found, care should be taken on no account to move the asbestos and expert advice must be taken as soon as possible.

Surveyors do not tell you whether there is asbestos on a survey. Your surveyor will mention suspected asbestos and will offer advice.

Gas flame

Will the Kenley surveyor examine the serviceability of the gas mains supply?

A RICS surveyor will locate and visually survey any accessible parts of the system. A surveyor will want to inspect the location of the meter as part of the Kenley survey, as well as gas connected fixtures such as chimney breasts or flues. Any external fittings however, won't be removed. Of course, gas is potentially unsafe, should you have any worries relating to gas installations, call a gas safe engineer.

House Prices

We are wanting to investing in a detached property in Kenley, CR8 for around the £379, 062 mark. What factors will Kenley RICS chartered surveyor take into account when calculating house prices in Kenley ?

There are a huge number of issues which could positively or negatively affect property values from the tenure i.e. freehold or leasehold to the property's proximity to a conservation area. One method is to set against the prices of house achieved in the area for similar houses.

The average house price registered at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £366, 662, which is £12, 400 less than the asking price. The combined house/flat average was £332, 739. 17, Wheat Knoll, Kenley, Croydon, Greater London, CR8 5JT a detached property sold for £342, 500 .

The best way for you to get a formal home valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report by default. Your qualified RICS surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme (mandatory since 2011).

The qualified RICS surveyor will attend the house as well as allowing for the variety of influences affecting values.

Landfill site near home

What should we be aware of when buying a house next to a refuse landfill site

Landfill Sites take many forms including hazardous rubbish. Understandably, no one wants to live near one (4/5 people live under 2km away from one). Concerns include structurally instability. Potential health issues for example cancer have been associated to landfill sites .

Building Surveys and valuations in Kenley will examine structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your legal representative will conduct environmental searches of the Landmark data sets as well as Tandridge Local Authority and address any concerns you may have .
