Which Home Survey is the right choice?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    The Homebuyer Report is the right choice if planning to purchase a home made of conventional materials i.e. brick & tile, in reasonable repair and constructed after 1900.

HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Tintagel and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Tintagel property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any alterations, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it does give you comprehensive details of the Tintagel property's condition in addition to advice on defects and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on apartments

Is it the right choice to choose a full structural survey prior to buying a converted, forties garden apartment in Tintagel?

Structural surveys are now dubbed Building Surveys. Choose the Building Survey if you are contemplating the apartment described. The HomeBuyer Report is all you really need for a mid century or later Tintagel home of standard construction materials.

There are certain restrictions exist with any residential survey as a chartered surveyor wont be able to open up the fabric of the Tintagel apartment nor can he/she advise whether drainage meets appropriate regulations.

Timber damage by insect larvae

There may be bugs at the property we're buying, but we are not certain. How do we investigate further?

Tintagel purchasers should be aware that there is no legal obligation for a seller to report on an infestation. When purchasing a building, this matter should be borne in mind. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months, for example, small tunnels in wooded beams may indicate the presence of house longhorn beetles. Remedies to bug or other pest issues can include destruction of tainted materials. If investigation does uncover a problem, consider speaking to the seller to ask that they deal with the issue prior to exchange.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

I know that Tintagel subsidence might be an issue. What subsidence-related defects will my HomeBuyer Report examine?

Subsidence is the movement of the foundations of a house which compromises its structural integrity. Most houses experience some minor cracking. New buildings in Tintagel and properties with new structural alterations will be particularly susceptible. A relatively small number of issues are usually found to be the cause of movement to a property. For example, water leaking from a cracked mains drainage pipe will remove layers of soil from around the foundations. This can effectively reduce the volume of the soil surrounding the structure, meaning it can no longer support the weight of the building. In severe weather, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence. The root cause of any subsidence must be found before repairs can commence. Removing or even pruning the tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Existing trees must be well managed, and new trees should be planted at a safe distance from the exterior walls of the property. Willow trees, for example, are often the culprits of serious subsidence. Buyers are often surprised to learn that a willow tree should be planted no neared than 40m from a home. Damaged but non-structural elements should be filled and re-weatherproofed. Chartered surveyors should be able to identify a subsidence problem, while structural engineers may also be required.
