HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Tunbridge Wells and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Tunbridge Wells property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any major works, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, however it will offer a thorough analysis of the Tunbridge Wells property's state of repair and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

House Prices

I intend to acquire a property in TN2 for around £423, 983. What considerations will a Tunbridge Wells RICS chartered surveyor allow for when carrying out a Home Survey ?

There are many factors that might affect property values ranging from proximity to transport to the number and size of bedrooms at the home. It can help to analyse prices achieved in Tunbridge Wells at the same time for comparable properties.

The means house prices recorded at the Land Registry in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £398, 783, which is £25, 200 less than the amount being asked. The combined house/flat average was £350, 257. 4A, Sandown Park, Tunbridge Wells, Tunbridge Wells, Kent, TN2 4RJ a detached home sold for £342, 500 .

An impartial way to get a professional house valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation by default. A chartered surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme (mandatory since 2011).

Damage resulting from flooding

We're getting in Tunbridge Wells. Is there a flood risk, and will the HomeBuyer Report look for possible flooding?

The impact of flooding, both in the region of Tunbridge Wells and nationwide, is a serious concern for home owners; sensible owners and property buyers in Tunbridge Wells are right to consider precautions. Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the house in question is in danger.

Flood water can enter a home in Tunbridge Wells through several routes, including air bricks.

Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. raised door thresholds. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the estate agent, but this information may not be accurate.

Asbestos roof tiles

The estate agent stated there may be a danger of asbestos duct connectors being found in the ground floor flat. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a pernicious fibrous mineral. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) are often building materials for example paper lining. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has excellent heat resistance qualities and it may be found in painted over ceilings. Technically all forms including Chrysotile are ultimately deadly and can lead to lung cancer or scarring of the lung following prolonged exposure.

Should you find asbestos, you should be careful never to displace the asbestos. Professional advice should be sought immediately. Never try to remove it yourself. Tunbridge Wells Surveyors will not tell you whether there is asbestos on a survey. Your Tunbridge Wells surveyor should note possible asbestos and should offer advice.
