HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Newbiggin By The Sea and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

If the Newbiggin By The Sea property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any substantial modifications, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, but it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Newbiggin By The Sea property's condition along with advice on defects and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

Can West Cornwall granite-built properties be hard to maintain. Are there specific potential issues to consider, and what will the survey reveal?

Purchasers in Newbiggin By The Sea should be aware that stone walls can be much weaker than they appear. The problems which can plague poorly maintained stone vary considerably. Regular stone describes cut stone, generally forming brick-like courses. These may require less maintenance than more irregularly built walls, but this is heavily dependent on the type of stone used. In addition, lime mortar may feature in the building's construction. Advice for better upkeep will vary according to the needs of individual property, such as repointing mortar with a suitable material. If you are planning to renovate, consider that stone matching services are available, which may be necessary for listed buildings. Locally mined or quarried stone may also be available.

Asbestos roof tiles

A builder friend noted there is a risk of asbestos coatings spayed on beams at the property. What is asbestos and what are the risks?

Concerns around asbestos are understandable. Asbestos is a dangerous material. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White are often building materials such as powdery sprayed on coatings. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good sound absorption qualities and it may be found in soffit boards. It was primarily mined in Canada. Technically all forms are ultimately carcinogenic and may lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. In fact breathing in a one fibre is not deadly.

If found, care should be taken however, not to move the asbestos. Professional advice should be sought as soon as possible. Removing it asbestos may be dear but must be carried out by experts.

Surveyors do not confirm the existence asbestos on a Newbiggin By The Sea HomeBuyer report. Surveyors will mention potential asbestos and will inform you of the options.

Damage resulting from flooding

Will our Newbiggin By The Sea residential surveyor consider flooding damage?

The Law Society estimate that 2.2m houses are exposed to floods. Both purchasers and home owners in areas exposed to flooding are right to be worried. A flood danger alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst. The Building Survey will also include details of any evidence of historical flooding, and may comment generally about the area's propensity to flood. The property surveyor may ask the current owner about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.
