HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Newquay and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same survey.

If the Newquay property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out alterations, you should you book a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it will give you comprehensive details of the Newquay property's state of repair as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are planning to buy a apartment in Newquay and spotted the driveway surface is broken and uneven. What subsidence issues does the Property Surveyor report on?

Movement of the foundations of a house is called subsidence. However, subsidence should be distinguished from the normal settlement of a home. In some older houses cracks are noticeable in Summer[ that close up in the winter] when the materials contract and draw in water.

Cracks that appear quickly may suggest movement and subsidence. Inside, keep an eye out for new or growing cracks in plasterwork.

Finding the cause of any subsidence is key. Repairing leaking drains, water mains or broken downpipes which are the cause of the subsidence, should be all that is needed to stabilise the home, with no underpinning required. In some more serious situations, underpinning may be necessary. If the surveyor cannot give you a conclusive diagnosis, they will recommend that you engage the services of a structural engineer.

Conservation area

Will there be any problems I should verify when planning to buy an extended house in Newquay near a conservation area ?

There are over 9, 000 of designated conservation areas in the UK that are designated and monitored by the local council.

Home Buyers Surveys in Newquay need to have local knowledge of relevant local area issues and the bearing they have with the home and its value. Prices will be significantly higher as a result of the areas retaining original features.

Property surveyors are trained to tell you if the property is possibly is so classified and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Newquay Homebuyer Report will suggest further enquiries are carried out by your legal adviser. Unsympathetic extensions that do not have Local Authority approval may also be advised, however these should be investigated by your lawyer. Ralph & Co Solicitors Llp are based in 20 Cliff Road, Cornwall, Cornwall, TR7 1SG should be prepared to tell you what to look out for. Tel: 01637 872218

Roof defects identified during a survey

Mould brings up bad memories for us, and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. What aspects of the loft will be checked?

Residential property in Newquay in good condition can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer roofing woes. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from parapet walls to dormers. The Newquay surveyors could suggest that some of the faults must be dealt with immediately.

An expensive quote for roofing jobs (such as wholesale replacement) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases, this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a builder from the area for the job itself.
