HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Ramsgate and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Ramsgate property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any alterations, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it does offer a thorough analysis of the Ramsgate property's state of repair as well as an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

House Prices

I intend to buy a property in CT11 for around £47, 783. What considerations will a Ramsgate surveyor evaluate during a professional valuation ?

There are a huge number of issues which could affect property values ranging from the general economy to the condition of shared common parts. You can try to look at flat prices achieved in the nearby area for similar properties. The average flat price paid between Jul and Oct 2012 was £67, 783, which is £20, 000 more than the amount the vendor is asking for (£146, 999 was the blended house/flat average). 130A, Hereson Road, Ramsgate, Thanet, Kent, CT11 7EG was purchased for £22, 000 .

An impartial way to get an accurate property valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report by default. Your qualified surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (established register of valuers).

The surveyor will attend home in addition to considering the variety of issues affecting property prices.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

As well as reporting on condition, will I get a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes and what does it include?

A Homebuyer Report on a Ramsgate property will contain an independent valuation as well as a reinstatement cost. To be able to determine the value of the property your surveyor should use local property market knowledge as well as other factors relating to the property e.g. number of bedrooms The RICS surveyor will also consider style of architecture and will make certain other assumptions, for example there are no dangerous materials.

A Building survey won't include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Further area assumptions, such as any cost of repairs being shared amongst tenants or problematic roads and access, are made in addition to any local environmental problems like mining activity, also being considered.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Damp in the attic brings up bad memories for us. What will our Ramsgate surveyor check when the property is surveyed?

Questions like this are often asked of surveyors in Ramsgate by Ramsgate home buyers who are aware that property could feature roof maintenance problems, such as cracked and loose slates or tiles. From trusses to tie beams, every part of the roof should be investigated. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like a slope of less than 12 to 15 degrees.

The expense of replacement of a failed dormer, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. A contractor can provide an estimate.
