Is it best to get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Boscastle and which is cheaper?

If the Boscastle property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out an extension on the Boscastle property, RICS advise you select a Building Survey.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

A Boscastle builder has suggested subsidence may be worth checking. What subsidence-related matters will the Chartered Surveyor review?

Subsidence is the movement of the foundations of a structure which compromises its structural integrity. Most structures will experience cracking at some stage. Where the home is of very recent construction, the builder will usually return to a new structure within a few months to make good any settlement cracks.

This issue can occur in areas with soil with a high chalk content, as this soil is more easily washed away by flooding. Organic material in the sub-soil can also create issues. Peat is normally stable when sat below the water table, but if the soil dries out, this organic matter will decompose. This will cause the soil beneath and around the foundations to collapse.

Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step.This is not always as costly as some buyers fear.Though tree roots are often the cause, removal of this plant life may make the problem worse, so professional advice should be sought. In serious cases, underpinning may be required. Underpinning is a lengthy process used to stabilise the foundations of a property, and is required in around a quarter of subsidence matters. Damaged but non-structural elements should be filled and re-weatherproofed. A surveyor will be able to recommend who to speak to about the best course of action, to remedy both the causes of the subsidence and the resulting damage to the property itself.

House Prices

I intend to purchase a house in PL35 for an asking price of £342, 800. What things does the Boscastle local surveyor allow for on a survey ?

There are a huge number of issues that can affect property values ranging from the legality of extensions to whether there are any conservation area infringements. It often helps to put side by side house values achieved in Boscastle at the same time for similar properties.

The means house prices completed in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £315, 000, which is £27, 800 less than the selling price. Tregarsan, Paradise Road, Boscastle, Cornwall, Cornwall, PL35 0BL a detached property sold for £315, 000 .

The best way for you to get an impartial property valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation by default. Your surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (mandatory since 2011).

A local surveyor should make a site visit to the building as well as considering the multiple items that might affect the value of property.
