HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Margate and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same.

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

If you are planning to carry out significant alterations on the Margate property, you should you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Margate property's state of repair in addition to an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be concerned about when buying a house in the region a rubbish tip

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes e.g. hazardous refuse. Of course nobody wants to live near one (most people do live under 2km away from one). Risks include complex organic chemicals. Health issues such as abdominal wall problems have been linked to landfill sites .

Surveys in Margate will flag up structural defects linked to the landfill. Your conveyancer will commission conveyancing and environmental searches of the British Geological databases and Thanet Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .

Stone block wall damage

I am purchasing a home and the current owner has told us that it has been partially constructed with Portland stone. What matters must we watch out for? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

External wall maintenance is essential to the health of Margate homes. Issues including spalling brick affect many stone-walled Margate homes. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay. Both regular or irregular stone can be mortared with lime-based mortar, which may be need of upkeep. You can ask the surveyor carrying out the survey for specific advice, but common maintenance suggestions include replacing missing or badly worn stones. If you are planning to renovate, consider that a stone matching service is operated by the British Geological Survey, as part of the Building Stone Assessment GeoReport. Locally mined or quarried stone may also be available.

Conservation area

Will there be any factors I would be advised to check out if purchasing a converted house in Margate inside a conservation area ?

There are thousands of conservation areas in England and Wales that are designated and monitored by local authorities. Margate surveyors need to possess knowledge of relevant local area issues and any effect may have with the property and its value. Values will be higher because of conservation areas retaining their original character. However many of them are falling into are falling into poor condition e.g. the unsightly effect of billboard advertising

Surveyors will report whether the property looks like it may be so designated and Section I of a Homebuyer Report will advise further investigations are conducted by your conveyancer.

Unauthorised extensions that do not have Local Authority approval will also be commented on but these are really more a concern for the solicitor.
