Home Buyers Survey in Padstow

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Padstow and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is effectively the same survey.

If the Padstow property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Padstow property's condition along with advice on structural defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

The vendor warned us that access to the attic could be a problem - What should we keep an eye out for during the investigation?

Homes in the area with no other major issues can often hide roof maintenance problems. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from collar ties to purlins. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like holes or cracks in the waterproof layer.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a Padstow roofing contractor for the job itself. Contact Canfield Dean of 16A St. Merryn Holiday Village, St. Merryn, Padstow, PL28 8QA on 01841 521352 for a quote.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I've put in an offer in Padstow. What input does you give?

Brick structures suffer from diverse problems, ranging from sulphate expansion to frost damaged pointing. For instance, thermal movement, particularly on longer walls and should be taken very seriously. Watts Brickwork at Unit 6 Gurnos Ind Est/Bethel Rd, Ystalyfera, Swansea, SA9 2HW should give an estimate for any work. Call them on 01639 842459.

Padstow home purchasers may need to consider that number of styles can be found across the UK. One example is Monk bond, which is similar to Flemish bond, but with two long bricks between every short one. The advice of a brickwork specialist should be sought before attempting repairs.

Conservation area

Will there be any things we need to look out for if planning to buy a building in Padstow in conservation area ?

There are nearly 10, 000 of designated conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are overseen by local authorities.

Home Buyers Surveys in Padstow need to possess knowledge of relevant local considerations and any effect may have with the property and its value. Prices is typically significantly higher because of them being in their original state.

Surveyors can be expected to inform you if the house could be so designated and Section I of your Homebuyer Report will recommend further investigations are raised by your legal representation. Out of keeping extensions to the building may be commented on but these are really more a concern for the lawyer.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what effect will rainfall have on our new Padstow house? We're concerned about replacement costs.

I find it odd that heavy rainfall and the effect it can have on your home are often overlooked. If you have investigated the home in dry conditions, defects may not have been obvious. Signs that rainwater goods are blocked include a waterlogged garden. This could then result in a damp or flooded cellar.

Fortunately, this is quite easy to resolve, if maintenance is taken seriously.However, the damage caused, where not unblocked on a regular basis, will be expense to remedy and resulting damp and mould could become a health risk.
