About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Rochester

HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Rochester and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is effectively the same.

If the Rochester property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out substantial modifications, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Rochester property's state of repair along with information on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is heavy rain an issue in Rochester? And could it affect the property value?

Climate change is regularly in the news. However the impact wet weather can have on homes in Rochester is rarely considered properly. Signs that downspouts are blocked include mildew or damp in the roof. If you have suspicions, consider asking the surveyor for more information.

These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to resolve for a reasonable cost.

Traditionally built property

I am buying a farmhouse in Rochester. What impact will the construction have on maintenance?

Some buyers have considered buying a old, characterful home one day. A building's age, however, can worry purchasers. Rochester houses employing traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be expensive to maintain. You should be aware that specialist knowledge may be needed. Materials suitable for the work may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of Grade I listed property. This may mean long-term upkeep. Mention this to the surveyor for more detail. Erected between 1075 and 1427, Cathedral, Gundulf Door in Rochester is a traditional cathedral of the time.
