HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Lostwithiel and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Lostwithiel property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give exhaustive analysis of the Lostwithiel property's general condition as well as an opinion on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any concerns we should look into when planning to buy a building in Lostwithiel in conservation area ?

There are many thousands of conservation areas throughout the country which are overseen by local authorities. Lostwithiel surveyors need to have local knowledge of local area issues and any relation may have with the property and its value. Prices will likely be significantly higher because of the areas being unspoilt.

Property surveyors can be expected to tell you if the home looks to be in a conservation area and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Lostwithiel Homebuyer Report will advise the proper questions are carried out during the conveyancing process. Unsympathetic changes that do not have Local Authority approval may also be commented on, however these should be investigated by your lawyer.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what effect should rainfall have on our new Lostwithiel home? Could it affect the property value?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, the effect which wet weather has on a property is not given enough thought by house purchasers. Signs that rainwater goods are damaged include spattered mud around the bottom of downspouts. This can lead to staining of wallpaper and damp.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to remedy, if not neglected.

English Heritage

We are buying a home close to Bofarnel Downs Round Barrows , will this affect the property's value?

Examples of other monuments of importance include Crewel Cross, At No Man'S Land, Cross In The Deer Park and Cross On Druid'S Hill.. The RICS surveyor will include many local and regional criteria when carrying out the homebuyer report in Lostwithiel.
