About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Kidbrooke

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Kidbrooke and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Kidbrooke property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out substantial modifications, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, however it will offer comprehensive details of the Kidbrooke property's state of repair as well as including information on defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

A leaky roof has created issues for us in the old property. What should we do about roof repairs?

This is often asked by buyers who know that homes can often hide problems like sagging beams. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from valley gutters to sheeting, and any defects addressed as soon as possible.

The maintenance of a roof can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will pests affect the purchase price of a property in Kidbrooke. Should we get a RICS surveyor?

Any questions about pests affecting a Kidbrooke property may not be asked by the lawyer.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can be costly to fix. Signs may not be obvious, sliverfish (lepisma saccharina), are rarely visible during the day. They will digest paper and wallpaper paste, but are more a symptom of damp than a serious problem themselves.

Remedies to a serious infestation can include chemical treatment. If investigation does uncover a problem, consider speaking to the seller to ask that they deal with the issue prior to exchange.

Damage resulting from flooding

Are Kidbrooke properties at risk, and does a chartered surveyor check for possible flood damage?

Unfortunately, distance from water or height above sea level is no guarantee that a Kidbrooke house will be secure against flooding, and insurance premiums. can be significantly affected for houses in flood-risk areas. The Environment Agency maintain a flood danger alert service, with regular updated risk assessments, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures. Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the Kidbrooke home or on adjacent sites. The Environment Agency also publish details of previous flood warnings.

The Environment Agency have updated the status for the Tidal flooding of areas near the Lincolnshire Coastline from Tetney Haven to Gibraltar Point, near Kidbrooke, to 'No warnings'.
