About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Snodland

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Snodland and which one is cheaper?

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

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

If you are planning to carry out alterations, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, however it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Snodland property's general condition as well as more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

For more detailed advice you can get an instant Snodland Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Can clay soil foundations be the cause of many issues? I am buying a house in Snodland. Can we expect the Home Survey to mention this?

The content of soil around the foundations of a Snodland property will have an impact, with subsidence being a common example. Evidence of clay soil-related problems can sometimes be found throughout a property. Signs like warped window frames in the drawing room can be an early warning, suggesting severe underlying structural deficiencies.

Taking precautions, such as after flooding or heavy rain, checking for standing water around the building, can make long term maintenance easier, and keep repair costs manageable. Small areas of wet soil can just as easily warp foundations, so care must be taken to ensure the overall moisture level of the clay soil around the foundations stays consistent.

Landfill site near home

What should we be worried about when purchasing a maisonette proximate to a refuse landfill site

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste for example: commercial rubbish. Nobody wants to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Concerns include tars and other hazardous materials. Health problems for example gut problems have been associated with landfill sites .

Building Surveys and valuations in Snodland will find structural defects linked to the landfill. Your lawyer will commission environmental searches of the Environmental Agency database in addition to Tonbridge and Malling Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

As well as reporting on condition, will I get a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for site clearance)

Homebuyer Reports include an independent valuation and also a reinstatement cost. To fully consider the value of the property the valuer will take into account local Snodland market factors as well as other factors relating to the property e.g. square metres Your Snodland surveyor will also consider construction type and make certain key assumptions, for example there are no damaging materials.

A Building Survey won't include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee ; call for more info. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Further Snodland conjectures, like the access roads not being in private control, are made in addition to any Snodland environmental problems like intrusive noises or smells, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

Gas flame

Does a local surveyor examine the condition of the gas flues?

A surveyor will locate and visually check any easily accessible parts of the gas system. The survey will include the location of the meter at the building, in addition to gas related fittings, for instance chimney breasts or flues. Any gas fittings won't actually be removed. Of course, gas is potentially fatal, if you have any worries about gas or if you smell the distinctive smell of gas, contact a gas safe engineer.
