Home Buyers Survey in Northfleet

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Northfleet and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Northfleet property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any major works, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give you comprehensive details of the Northfleet property's state of repair along with advice on structural defects , repairs and maintenance options .

House Prices

Is £93, 878 a reasonable price to buy a flat in DA11 for and what will the Northfleet RICS surveyor take into account in the process of a RICS valuation ?

A myriad of factors exist which could positively or negatively affect property values e.g. the amount of service charges payable or whether there is any subsidence. You can try to benchmark selling prices recorded in the same area for similar flats. The mean flat price recorded in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £115, 578, which is £21, 700 more than the price you are intending to pay. The combined house/flat average was £155, 538. 4, Flat A, Pier Road, Northfleet, Gravesend, Gravesham, Kent, DA11 9NB sold for £155, 000 .

The best way for home buyers to get a formal property valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report as an inclusive part. A RICS surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme ( to not be is a breach of RICS rules).

A surveyor will actually visit the property in addition to allowing for the long list of area issues that can impact on the value of property.

Asbestos roof tiles

The vendor has mentioned there may be powdery white asbestos sprayed on coatings in the property. What are the issues with asbestos, what are the remedial options and does the HomeBuyer report cover this?

Asbestos is a pernicious fibrous structured mineral. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White and they were commonly used in building materials including artex. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good heat resistance properties, it may be found in the home appliances. Technically all forms (including white) are ultimately carcinogenic and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Finding asbestos does not necessarily pose a risk to health.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered on no account to break the asbestos. Professional advice should be sought immediately. You should not attempt to disturb it yourself. Approved experts can be found at www.arca.org.uk. Surveyors will not tell you whether there is asbestos on a survey. They will report on suspected asbestos and should suggest further investigation.
