HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Redruth and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Redruth property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make alterations, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, but it does provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Redruth property's state of repair in addition to advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on maisonettes

Should I go for a full structural survey prior to investing in a dilapidated fifties mansion maisonette in Redruth?

Full Structural Surveys have a new title and are now named Building Surveys. The HomeBuyer Report has enough detail if buying a mid century or later unmodified home assembled from normal building materials. The RICS Building Survey is the right survey to opt for in relation to the maisonette described. Around 3 days following a thorough inspection of the accessible areas of the house, a written report is posted to you specifying any crucial professional advice about the materials used for the construction of the building.

There are a few provisos with any residential survey insofar as your surveyor wont be able to (unless safe to do so) force or open up the fabric of the Redruth house, an example being undoing electrical fittings.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The Fletton brick on this converted apartment has deteriorated. What are the possible consequences? Does brick decay faster in Redruth weather?

Brick-built Redruth apartments do benefit from many advantages. Unfortunately, they also suffer from diverse problems. One defect surveyors commonly report on brick buildings is sulphate attack, caused by moisture interacting with sulphates in cement, and will destroy the structural integrity of the wall.

Brick-constructed property can be found across the UK, leading to a range of techniques. For example, Monk bond, which is similar to Flemish bond, but with two long bricks between every short one. The apparent simplicity of brick repairs compared to plumbing or rewiring can lead to a DIY effort making a situation worse. Seek advice before undertaking such work, and do not disregard your surveyors advice.

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a flood risk in Redruth, and will the building survey check possible water damage?

The Law Society estimate that 2.2m properties are at risk of flooding, and buyers cannot know that insurance against flooding will continue to be available. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures. The Home Buyers Survey will also include details of any evidence of historical flooding, and may comment generally about the area's propensity to flood. The Environment Agency also publish details of previous flood warnings.
