Top tips for a Sittingbourne Home Buyers Survey


Sittingbourne is a town in the Swale district of Kent and is behing the Roman Watling Street. After the railway came in 1858, it expanded rapidly. Sittingbourne and its consumed suburb of Milton today is a growing town, with much recent expansion by way of house-building in the former chalk and brick clay works digs. Its growth has been encouraged by its fast travel links to London Victoria and HS1 to King's Cross.

It has a large variety of houses, from Georgian cottages for example in Stockbury, to Victorian villas in London Road to bungalows in Key Street and Chegworth Gardens, Tunstall to 1950s semi-detached properties in Hambrook Walk, Milton Regis.

New build developments include detached houses in The Meadows and semi-detached and terrace properties in Great Easthall Way, where shared ownership is often available.

KentKent, 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.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A RICS Home Buyers Survey involves an examination of the structure of the inside and the outside of a property.

Choosing the right survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, to get is important however both a HomeBuyers Report and a Building Survey will identify any suspicions of the main defects discussed below.

NB If you're a first time buyer, you might wish to click on What is a House Survey to find out more, including what happens during the inspection.

If your Home Buyers Survey highlights concerns relating to any of these defects your surveyor explains what the issue is in detail and provides a recommendation as to what you should do to further investigate. An example of this is if your surveyor spots signs of damp within the property. Over 5,000 properties a week in the UK have damp proofing laid to combat the issue of rising damp and home buyers fear seeing mould, peeling wall paper and sodden floors as these are all tell-tale signs of rising damp.

If your property is showing these signs and your surveyor notes using their damp monitor that there is damp internally they'll advise you to get a damp specialist to attend the property, confirm the issue advising whether it is rising damp and quote for the costs in repairing with damp proofing.

If you're looking at buying a home in Sittingbourne which is showing signs of damp, or any other defects then you MUST get a Home Buyers Survey. The costs for repairing the defects can run into thousands of pounds; however, If you can identify the problem before you purchase then you can get quotes for fixing it and either share the costs with the seller, or, in worst case examples, choose not to proceed.

When should you book in your property defect survey?

It is recommended that you book in your property survey, be it a HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, around the same time you book in your mortgage valuation.

Booking the inspection to coincide with a few days after you get the decision on your mortgage (the offer) keeps you on track with the process.

Additionally it allows you time to cancel your survey in the unfortunate event of the lender declining your mortgage.

In the event that you are a cash purchaser, it is recommended to have your survey carried out as soon as you can within the process as this will be a deciding factor as to whether you proceed with buying the property or not.
