Which Building Survey should you select?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Queenborough

    A Homebuyer Report is the right choice when buying a home built from conventional building materials i.e. tile and brick, in reasonable repair and constructed after 1900.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Queenborough

    A Building Survey (which used to be called a Full Structural Survey in Queenborough) is also conducted by a MRICS/FRICS surveyor and is more exhaustive. Opt for this option when buying a non standard e.g. wood frame homes.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Queenborough

    This is an independent valuation of the property. This report is often chosen by cash purchasers or anyone needing a formal valuation e.g. matrimonial dispute.

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Queenborough and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

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

If you are thinking about whether to do any substantial modifications, RICS advise you select a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap, however it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Queenborough property's general condition as well as including advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

House Prices

I am planning to buy a house in ME11 for £127, 500. What will a Queenborough RICS surveyor take into account when carrying out a RICS valuation ?

Any number of issues that can impact on property values from location of nearby transport links to whether it is near the coast or has a coastal view. One method is to set against house prices achieved in the nearby area for comparable properties.

This means house prices completed in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £121, 500, which is £6, 000 less than the amount being asked. Swale Cottage, 4, West Street, Queenborough, Swale, Kent, ME11 5AD a semi detached house sold for £72, 000 .

In order for home buyers to get an independent home valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report (or Property Valuation Report) which includes a professional valuation as part of the service. A chartered surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme (mandatory since 2011).

Timber damage by insect larvae

There may be vermin at the house we're buying, but we are not certain - What advice should we get?

Pests like cockroaches may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Queenborough. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. It may not be obvious that a house is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked, for example, cockroaches are nocturnal, and challenging to eradicate. Species common to the UK, such as the German Cockroach, are small, and breed rapidly in moist conditions. This makes them both hard to spot, and to treat successfully. Remedies to vermin can include insecticides and removal of infected furniture.RICS guidelines on the issue of pests are something of a 'grey-area', so specific fears should be mentioned to your Queenborough surveyor.

Conservation area

Are there any factors I would be advised to be aware of if buying a period property in Queenborough inside a conservation area, particularly in respect of to house prices?

There are around ten thousand of conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are overseen by local authorities. Surveyors in Queenborough need to possess relevant knowledge of relevant local area factors and the connection they have on the building. Property Prices will be higher than non conservation area equivalents due to the areas being in good order.

Surveyors will report if the house looks to be in a conservation area and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Homebuyer Report will recommend suitable questions are carried out as part of the legal process.

Unauthorised extensions to the building will also be reported, however these should be concern for the lawyer. H A Underwood are based in Underwood House, Swale, Kent, ME12 1TP should be prepared to advise. Tel: 01795 663 555
