HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Torpoint and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

If the Torpoint property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make major works, you should you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Torpoint property's state of repair and it includes more detailed advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I visited the mid-century home I am intending to buy, the agent said that there is an old fuse board , does a Homebuyer Report in Torpoint go into detail on the general state of the electrical system?

During a Home Buyers Survey in Torpoint the RICS surveyor should comment on the condition of the electrics if it is clear that the electrics are in a dangerous state of repair. This will include a by sight check of the unconcealed areas of the wiring or fusebox and other concerns such as ascertaining the nature of electrical fittings in bath or shower rooms or reporting on the condition of any visible wiring a representative sample of light fittings and switch gear. Inspecting the evidence of the most recent Periodic Inspection Report handled by a suitably qualified electrician should usually be part of the Homebuyer report in Torpoint.

The IEE recommend that a Periodic Inspection be conducted at least every 10 years (5 if letting out).

House Prices

Is £152, 921 a good amount to pay for a house close to good transport links in PL11 for and what will the Torpoint chartered surveyor allow for during a RICS valuation ?

There are a huge number of issues that can impact on house prices including the location of nearby transport links or the amount of light it receives. One method is to set against the prices of house registered at the Land Registry for similar properties.

The average house price recorded at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £162, 221, which is £9, 300 more than the amount you are paying. The house/flat average was £147, 211. 14, Buttlegate, Downderry, Torpoint, Cornwall, Cornwall, PL11 3NQ a detached home sold for £595, 000 .

The best way for you to get an impartial property valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report (or Property Valuation Report) which includes a Property Valuation Report by default. Your surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme ( to not be is a breach of RICS rules).

A professional qualified surveyor will actually visit the building in addition to allowing for the long list of area issues that can affect house prices.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The stretcher bond walls on this Georgian property appears to have several cracks - what should we do?

Torpoint brick-walled flats can be affected by considerable issues. For example, wall tie failure. This occurs when ties supporting old cavity walls rust, leading to horizontal cracks and separation of the internal and eternal leaves of the wall and may require immediate attention.

To arrange a quote for repairs, contact a local specialist, e.g. 29 at Osprey Dr, Walney, Barrow-In-Furness, LA14 3JS on 01229 470270.

For home purchasers in Torpoint seeking a rare example of brick architecture, look for unusual course styles like English garden wall bond is often a mix of Flemish and Monk bonds.

If the Torpoint surveyor does raise concerns about a brick wall defect or structural issue, it may be wise to speak to a builder before completion to assess the extent and cost of the work.
