Home Buyers Survey in Tenterden

HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Tenterden and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Tenterden property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, but it does provide you with a thorough analysis of the Tenterden property's condition along with more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

What do I need to think about when buying an older property? Will the age of the home be a problem?

Some buyers would be interested in owning a home with character. A property's age, however, can occasionally give buyers second thoughts, and Properties employing traditional methods can be unexpectedly hard to repair. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary. Construction materials, such as matching tiles, may also need to be sourced. This can mean that it is all the more vital that you get a building survey prior to exchanging. Contact the property surveyor for more detail. As an example of Medieval building, Mans Shop in Tenterden was constructed in around 1465.

Surveyors in Tenterden need to possess sufficient knowledge of relevant local issues and any relation they have on the property.

There are a huge number of issues which could positively or negatively affect house prices e.g. any number of structural defects or the home having hard to change bad taste parts. It can help to put side by side house values registered at the Land Registry for similar properties.

The average house price registered at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £448, 429, which is £19, 600 less than the price you are intending to pay.

The most reliable way to get a formal property valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation as an inclusive part.

A professional surveyor should attend the building as well as factoring in any other issues affecting property prices.

Building Surveys on apartments

Should I pay a bit more money for a full structural survey for an apartment in Tenterden?

The Building Survey is now the correct term for the Structural Survey following its reclassification recently by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors. If contemplating the buying of an unusual Tenterden property, for example an older house, it is the most appropriate survey. A Building Survey will outline crucial details in relation to the buildings condition in conjunction with any important technical details after a thorough inspection of the accessible areas. Permanent outside buildings will typically be checked out during the survey.
