HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Perranporth property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make major works, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give a more detailed analysis of the Perranporth property's condition and it includes information on defects and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I have heard that clay soil can be the source of maintenance problems for houses in Perranporth. What should we expect a Perranporth HomeBuyer Report to include?

Factors from dry rot to termites can cause major repair bills for a home-owner. Clay-rich soil, for example, is a potential source of a number of issues. Subsidence is a major concern, but there are others, including uneven soil compaction. In Perranporth's relatively mild climate, the variations in volume which clay soil experiences will be barely noticeable, but extended dry or wet spells may well impact the soil's stability and affecting the property itself. The

real impact of this could reveal itself as anything from unremarkable widening cracks, to complete structural failure. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Perranporth, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the home. If soil water levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is also important. Your surveyor may be able to offer practical suggestions as to how this can be achieved.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Should we consider guttering? Where there is a problem, what should we do?

The impact of climate change is widely reported, yet the effect which heavy rainfall has on buildings in Perranporth is often overlooked. If you have only seen the house you are buying on a sunny day, defects may not have been obvious.

Signs that drainage are under performing include water pooling below gutters. If you suspect a problem, consider asking the surveyor for more information.

Fortunately, issues with rainwater goods are usually easy to fix, and is also relatively inexpensive. Where this is not unblocked on a regular basis, the damage becomes increasing costly to remedy.

Building Surveys on apartments

Is it best to upgrade to full structural survey prior to purchasing a shabby seventies penthouse apartment in Perranporth?

Structural surveys have a new title and are now called Building Surveys. This is now the right survey when purchasing a modified home like a neglected house. It will typically give full and important information concerning the property's state of repair on top of any maintenance needs after a thorough visual inspection of any accessible parts.
