About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Camelford

HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Camelford and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Camelford property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Camelford property's state of repair as well as including more detailed advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact should wet weather have on our new Camelford house? We're concerned about replacement costs.

Both in Camelford, and throughout the county, rain is so common that buyers rarely think about it. Unfortunately this issue is ignored by house purchasers. For example, spalling on walls around drainage strongly suggest that the downspouts are damaged. In most cases, drainage problems are usually easy to resolve for a reasonable cost. Where this is not cared for, the damage becomes increasing costly to remedy.

Stone block wall damage

Will a property with stone walls cause problems? Which potential issues should we consider, and what will the survey reveal?

Britain's geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Golconda Dolomitic Limestone to Portland Fancy Beach Limestone. Faults common to poorly maintained stone walls can include salt contamination of. Regular stone describes cut stone, generally forming brick-like courses. These may require less maintenance than more irregularly built walls, but this is heavily dependent on the type of stone used. Different stone types will also decay a different rates based on environmental conditions. For example, slate is more damp resistant than many other forms of stone, as is granite. Advice for better upkeep will vary according to the needs of individual property, such as resolution of underlying problems, like damp, before work on the wall starts.

Shocking Electrics

When I visited the period property I intend to buy I noticed that there is an old fuse board - will a Camelford Homebuyer Report advise electrical defects?

During a Camelford Homebuyer Report a qualified surveyor will mention the overall electrical system if it is clear that the electrics are in an unsatisfactory condition. This should include a general examination of exposed parts of the wiring or fusebox on top of areas e.g. verifying the condition of any fixed electrical appliances, for example heaters or verifying the condition of a sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear. Examining the documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report handled by an electrician on the property should be part of the Homebuyer report in Camelford.

The IEE suggest that a Periodic Inspection Report is carried out every 10 years (or every 5 if letting out).
