Top tips for a Faversham Home Buyers Survey


With the arrival of the train statio in 1858, population increased and so as did the demand for housing. Victorian housing can be found on Stone Street, South Road and Roman Road. A large proportion of the town’s buildings are from this era with some buildings being from the Georgian era. These tend to be large detached houses such as those in Painters Forstal and on London Road.

There are modern houses available as well as older houses with lots of history. These new homes can be found in the Tylman Place development offering two, three or four bedroom houses that are stylish and spacious. There are also similar developments such as Millers row and Royal Parade, towards Canterbury.

The Swale runs through Faversham which is a tributary hence the town is subject to flood alerts from time to time. Roads affected are those such as Abbey Street, Brent Road and Cyprus Road.

If you are concerned that a property you are looking to buy is in a flood risk area, you should consider getting a flood risk report (click for more details).
The M2 and London road cause raised levels of noise pollution for Faversham. This mainly affects the south of the town such as Ethelbert Road, Finch Close and Cambridge Road.
According to the UK Government's Public Health England, Faversham is in a raised radon area, with properties built there having a higher probability than average of experiencing ground Radon emissions.

The raised Radon area has a maximum radon potential 1-3% (the percentage is the chance of a property being built where Radon emissions might measure above the action level).

If you are concerned that a property you are buying is in an area of raised Radon, please click to visit Public Health England's UK Radon Map. Click also to find out more about Radon, Radon property searches and much more.

Kent.pngKent, romantically described as 'the garden of England', is a coastal county in the England's south eastern corner. Because it borders Greater London, it is classed as one of the home counties. It contains the Weald and the North Downs. Kent's county town is Maidstone. Other large cities include Gillingham, Chatham, Ashford, Royal Tunbridge Wells, Margate, Dartford and Gravesend. 

Kent has many port towns including Dover, Folkestone and Margate. Adjacent counties include East Sussex, Surrey, Essex (across the River Thames) and, as stated earlier, Greater London. Curiously, Kent used to contain an enclave north of the River Thames until 1965 which equates now to the E16 postcode area and which has now been reclassified as part of the London Borough of Newham. JMW Turner, the great impressionist painter, spent part of his childhood in Margate and regularly returned there in later life. The coastline of East Kent is regarded as the inspiration for many of his works, particularly his fantastic seascapes.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

It is a common misconception that a mortgage valuation is a HomeBuyers Survey and this can leave HomeBuyers exposed to high repair costs that could have been negotiated with the seller. A mortgage valuation is conducted by the lender’s surveyor to assess the value of the property you are interested in buying in Faversham and they do not provide a detailed report on structural defects.

A HomeBuyers Survey details defects and includes a full appraisal of the property independently to anyone else including the mortgage lender. You can use the information to obtain quotes to fix any defects and gives you the evidence to potentially share the costs with the seller.

Most savvy buyers make sure they get a HomeBuyers survey from an independent surveyor to make sure the property they are buying is free from defects. Call us on 0333 344 3234 to get the best HomeBuyers survey for your property in Faversham.
