Home Buyers Survey in Kingsdown

HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Kingsdown and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Kingsdown property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Kingsdown property's state of repair as well as an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Shall I go for the full structural survey if purchasing a derelict forties property in Kingsdown rather than a HomeBuyer Report?

House Prices

There is a property in Kingsdown (CT15) for £453, 036. What things will a qualified surveyor take into account when valuing house prices in Kingsdown ?

There are a great number of factors that can affect house prices e.g. the existence of damp or whether there are any original features. One method is to put side by side values achieved in the area for similar houses.

This means house prices recorded at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £443, 336, which is £9, 700 less than the price you are intending to pay. Havensea, Foreland Road, St Margarets Bay, Dover, Dover, Kent, CT15 6EB a detached property was purchased for £362, 000 .

The surveyor will visit the site in addition to considering any other location variables that can impact on the value of property.

Stone block wall damage

I am intending to put an offer in on a Kingsdown house constructed Cotswold stone. Which potential issues should we consider?

Stone walls are often ignored by home buyers due to their apparent strength and solidity. Buyers should also be aware that the potential severity of issues like efflorescence will vary with the particular type of stone.

Stone walls are either regular (cut) or irregular in structure, each of which will provoke particular concerns. Repair advice often includes replacing missing or badly worn stones.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We are buying a loft-conversion in Kingsdown, and we are wary of potential roofing issues. What will our Kingsdown building surveyor look into during the survey?

This is a common concern for buyers in Kingsdownwho have had to put up with weeks of scaffolding around their home while work is underway. Homes throughout Kingsdown could unfortunately be experiencing issues with the roof. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from tie beams to trusses, and any defects addressed as soon as possible.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Kingsdown, but it is a health and safety necessity. A Kingsdown roofing contractor with solid references should be able to assist with a quote.
