HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Hythe and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same.

If the Hythe property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any alterations, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Hythe property's state of repair as well as an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact could damp weather have on our new building? Will the house surveyor report on this? Where there is work that needs to be done, what should we do?

I find it odd that wet weather and the effect it can have on a house are rarely considered properly. If you have only been to the home on a sunny day, problems are unlikely to be visible. Signs that gutters are worth a closer look include "gushing" gutters. This could then result in staining of wallpaper and damp.

Whether buying in Hythe or elsewhere, difficult gutters does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to fix, and is also relatively inexpensive, unless they are disregarded. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.

Landfill site near home

What should I be worried about when buying a property close to Sandling Sand Pit near Sandling Road and landfill sites generally

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste for example: hazardous waste disposal. Thousands of sites affect hundreds of thousands of people throughout the UK including Hythe. Risks might include hazardous chemicals. Potential health problems for example congenital birth defects have been associated to landfill sites .

Building Surveys and valuations in Hythe will examine structural issues linked to the landfill. Your conveyancer will commission conveyancing searches of the Landmark data sets and Shepway Local Authority and advise you .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are planning to buy a home in Hythe and spotted that the sitting room floor dipped in one corner, could this be evidence of subsidence? What subsidence issues does the Surveyor report on?

Subsidence is movement in a house's foundations. In most situations, subsidence can be put right quite easily.

Cracks that appear suddenly may be a strong indication of subsidence. Signs of potential subsidence include doors and windows that are more difficult to open.

Learning the cause of any subsidence should be the first priority. Removing or even pruning the tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Damaged but non-structural elements should be filled and re-weatherproofed. Specialist geological and drain surveys may also be required as the movement of soil can sometimes crack drains or water mains.
