Home Buyer Survey tips for buying in Faversham


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).

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).

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?

When you buy a home with a mortgage your Mortgage Lender requires you to get a mortgage valuation to assess how much your property is actually worth. You have to pay for this survey and often you may think this is also a structural assessment to identify defects.

Sadly the mortgage valuation is just for the mortgage lender which means you need to get your own independent survey of the property that you'd like to buy in Faversham to make sure there aren't any defects.

There is some confusion as the mortgage valuation is often referred to as a survey and so many buyers assume this is what is meant by 'have you done your survey?' It is important that when buying a property in Faversham that you arrange your own HomeBuyers Survey that reports on defects or potential issues with the property.

The two types of HomeBuyers Survey to choose from are the HomeBuyers Report or the Building Survey. Buying without a survey could leave you exposed to any repair costs or defects that you didn't spot. The costs of underpinning a property due to subsidence run into the £10,000s so it is important to get a survey to check for this type of defect. Buy your HomeBuyers Survey - call 0333 344 3234.
