HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Meopham and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Meopham property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any an extension on the Meopham property, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Meopham property's state of repair as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

House Prices

There is a detached house in DA12 in Meopham priced at £325, 183. What different issues will your qualified RICS surveyor allow for when calculating house prices in Meopham on a RICS valuation ?

There is a vast array of things that can add to or subtract from property values like the existence of double glazing or the number of bedrooms in the property. You can try to put side by side values recorded in Meopham for similar houses.

The average house price recorded between Jul and Oct 2012 was £340, 983, which is £15, 800 more than the amount you are paying. Bethany, Pear Tree Lane, Shorne, Gravesend, Gravesham, Kent, DA12 3JS a detached home sold for £650, 000 .

The best way for you to get a formal home valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report in Meopham which includes a Property Valuation Report by default.

External walls

On the HomeBuyer Report, what are the usual Condition rating 3 defects affecting main walls?

A condition rating of three is used to emphasise the most crucial repairs. Defects marked in red may also need further inspection by an expert, where asbestos is suspected to have been used in the home's construction. Some areas may be marked as 'Not inspected'. Irrespective of standardised format of the report, your surveyor will provide a bespoke report, tailored to your particular concerns. An example defect for this is scuppers missing from roof drains. The surveyor's report on the condition of the external walls will consider all visible defects. If hidden issues with the walls or foundations are suspected, a more comprehensive structural survey may be advised. The damp proof course is also covered under Section E4.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Will my survey give a property valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of professional fees) and what does it include?

Homebuyer Reports include a valuation and a "reinstatement cost" included in the cost of the survey. To work out the value of the property your RICS valuer will pair in depth understanding of the Meopham market and other considerations relating to the property e.g. general condition Surveyors also reflect on certain fixtures and fittings and draw upon key assumptions like no damaging building techniques have been used. Surveyors don't factor in certain things like furnishings e.g. carpets.

Additional local Meopham area assumptions, for example water and drainage connectivity, are made in addition to local environmental issues like pig farms, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

A Building survey won't include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee by request. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.
