Looking for a Building Survey? Which of the 3 should you select?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    A Homebuyer Report should be chosen if planning to buy a property made of conventional building materials i.e. brick & tile, in reasonable repair and built in the last 100 years.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    A Building Survey (once known as a Full Structural Survey in Camborne) will also be conducted by a RICS chartered surveyor but is more detailed. Opt for this for unconventional e.g. timber wall homes.

HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Camborne and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Camborne property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out alterations on the property, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give comprehensive details of the Camborne property's general condition in addition to information on defects and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

I suspect there might be painted over asbestos ceilings being found in house. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly fibrous material. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) were commonly found in the building materials for example rain water goods. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has excellent resistance to chemical damage qualities and it may be found in gutters.

All forms are ultimately carcinogenic and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods.

If found, care should be taken never to remove the asbestos. Professional advice must be taken immediately. You should never endeavour to get rid of it yourself. Surveyors cannot test for asbestos during the survey. However, surveyors will mention the risk of asbestos during the Camborne survey and will advise accordingly.

Stone block wall damage

Can properties built with stone cause problems for purchasers? Which issues should we consider? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

Buyers of a Grade II listed building should consider that any repairs are in keeping with the methods and materials used in the original construction. Problems which impact stone-built Camborne properties can vary greatly, with issues like staining being quote common. Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to Camborne properties, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used around doors and window frames. Buyers should consider that stone can have a great effect on the long-term viability of a property or extension, resulting in higher repair costs in future. For example, granite is more water resistant that most other stones. Upkeep advice often given in a survey includes clearing of ivy-like plant life and weeds.

Ask your surveyor for clarification if you are in doubt as to likely maintenance, particularly if the house in question is listed or located in a conservation area.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are planning to buy a apartment in Camborne and saw that the living room floor dipped in one corner. What subsidence issues will the Home Buyers Survey look into?

Subsidence is the movement of the foundations of a house which compromises its structural integrity. Most houses experience some minor cracking, particularly new-build properties or those with a recent extension Where the home is of very recent construction, the builder will usually return to a new house after time has passed to make good any settlement cracks.

New cracks wider than 3mm to the external brickwork, or noticeable widening cracks which have remained stable for some time, may indicate subsidence. Inside, keep an eye out for new, suddenly visible cracks in brick or render.

The root cause of any subsidence must be found before repairs can commence. It has been estimated that around 70% subsidence cases are caused by tree roots drawing moisture from the soil. In serious cases, underpinning may be required. Underpinning involves holes being dug 1 metre long and around 1.5 metres deep, along all affected sections of wall, and just beneath the present foundations. Reinforcement bars and concrete are then inserted into these pits to support the structure, as the rest of the foundations are dug out and similarly filled in with concrete. A surveyor will be able to tell you if there is subsidence in your home or not, and what is causing it.
