About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Sandgate

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Sandgate and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Sandgate property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works on the property, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give a thorough analysis of the Sandgate property's general condition along with more detailed advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should I be concerned about if buying a house near to a rubbish tip

Sites used for landfill take many forms for example: commercial waste disposal. Understandably, no one would want to live near one (most people do live within 1.5m of one!). Concerns include bacterial decomposition resulting in methane. Potential health concerns for example gut problems have been associated with landfill sites .

Surveys in Sandgate will consider structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your solicitor will commission conveyancing and environmental searches of the Landmark databases as well as Shepway Local Authority and advise you .

House Prices

Is £192, 214 in the right ball park price to pay for a flat in CT20 in Sandgate for. What things does the surveyor take into account in the process of a RICS valuation ?

There is a near endless list of things that can impact on property values like whether any associated planning permissions come with the property or the number of bedrooms in the property. One method is to weigh up prices against values recorded in the same area for similar properties. The mean flat price paid in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £166, 714, which is £25, 500 less than the price being asked. The house/flat average was £188, 852. 3 Victoria Cottages, Risborough Lane, Folkestone, Shepway, Kent, CT20 3LL a new build freehold Flat recently sold for £167, 000 .

An sensible way to get an impartial house valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report (or Property Valuation Report) which includes a Property Valuation Report as an integral component. A qualified surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme ( to not be is a breach of RICS rules).
