HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Tenterden and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is effectively the same survey.

If the Tenterden property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, but it does provide you with a thorough analysis of the Tenterden property's condition along with more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

For more details you can get a Tenterden Homebuyers Survey Quote on our site or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The home we plan to buy is built on clay soil. Can we expect the Tenterden Home Survey to mention this?

The adverse impact clay soil can have on a property can be significant, with uneven soil compaction and soil movement being relatively common. The consequences may take years to be noticed, or could be felt suddenly. Some clay soils are prone to creep, if the top soil and property lie on a slope. Either as a result of erosion or extreme weather, in rare situations, the soil layer can shift without warning, as a landslide, resulting in the structural failure and collapse of the whole building! A Tenterden surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. If you are particularly concerned about a crack or other sign of movement, the surveyor can also report on whether it is recent, or an indication of much earlier subsidence.

Building Surveys on apartments

Should I pay a bit more money for a full structural survey for an apartment in Tenterden?

The Building Survey is now the correct term for the Structural Survey following its reclassification recently by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors. If contemplating the buying of an unusual Tenterden property, for example an older house, it is the most appropriate survey. A Building Survey will outline crucial details in relation to the buildings condition in conjunction with any important technical details after a thorough inspection of the accessible areas. Permanent outside buildings will typically be checked out during the survey.

Conservation area

Will there be any things we should verify if buying a building in Tenterden inside a conservation area, particularly in relation to house prices?

There are thousands of conservation areas in England and Wales which are designated by local authorities. Surveyors in Tenterden need to possess sufficient knowledge of relevant local issues and any relation they have on the property. Prices is typically significantly higher due to the areas retaining original features.

Property surveyors are expected inform you whether the location looks like it may be within a conservation area and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Homebuyer Report will advise additional enquiries are raised by your legal adviser. Out of keeping extensions to the property may also be noted, however these should be concern for your lawyer.
