HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Hawkhurst and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same survey.

If the Hawkhurst property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out an extension, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it does give a thorough analysis of the Hawkhurst property's general condition as well as more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

I am buying a stone-walled property. Which major matters should we consider?

Buyers of a stone-walled listed building should consider that any repairs are in keeping with the methods and materials used in the original construction. These restrictions are often rigorously enforced, and the defects impacting a type of stone will vary according to its properties. Stone quarried in the area is common to local properties, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county. Ashlar courses are often used to finish more irregular stone walls. This can give rise to maintenance issues if either element of the wall has been treated with a non-breathable material. You can ask the surveyor carrying out the survey for specific advice, but common maintenance suggestions include clearing of ivy-like plant life and weeds.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. John Bourne & Co Ltd, Rye Road, Newenden, Cranbrook, Kent, TN18 5QG for details. Call 01797 252298 for more information.

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will vermin affect the purchase price of a Hawkhurst property - Will the Property Survey investigate this?

Scare stories about building infestations are plentiful, it is tempting to treat signs of pests such as cockroaches as minor annoyances.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can be very expensive to resolve. Evidence may not be easy to find, for example, skin irritation or spots of blood on bedsheets may indicate the presence of bed bugs. Treatment for vermin may include removal or excision of affected timber.RICS guidelines on the issue of infestations are something of a 'grey-area', so specific fears should be mentioned to your chartered surveyor. Speak to a pest control specialist, such as Guest & Sons Ltd, Cherry Trees, Delmonden Lane, Hawkhurst, Cranbrook, Kent, TN18 4XB on 0158 075 3357, to discuss remedies.

Conservation area

Will there be any problems we would need to on guard for if purchasing an extended house in Hawkhurst inside a conservation area, particularly with regards to house prices?

There are thousands of conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are overseen by local authorities.

A Building Surveyors are required by RICS to possess knowledge of local issues and any effect they have with the property and its value. Values is typically inflated owing to conservation areas retaining their original character.

Property surveyors can be expected to note whether the location is or might be is so classified and Section I of your Hawkhurst Homebuyer Report will advise additional enquiries are raised during the conveyancing process. Unapproved adjustments that do not have Local Authority approval should be noted but these are really more a concern for the solicitor. Crookeslaw are a local firm situated at Suite 3, Tunbridge Wells, Kent, TN18 5ED will be prepared to advise further. Tel: 01580 754884
