About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Port Isaac

HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Port Isaac and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same.

If the Port Isaac property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, but it does give an in-depth analysis of the Port Isaac property's general condition as well as information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

When buying in Port Isaac, should we be worried about a flood risk, and will the surveyor look for any flooding, or whether flooding has affected the garden?

Recent conflict between insurers has the government has caused a great deal of uncertainty; sensible owners and home purchasers in Port Isaac are right to consider precautions.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure. Flood water can enter a house through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls. Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the house or on adjacent sites. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a Home Buyers Survey if the building surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the house is at risk.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what effect will rain have on our new house in Port Isaac? Will the house surveyor report on this? Are repairs going to be expensive?

Climate change is regularly in the news. However the effect which rainfall has on Port Isaac buildings is not given enough thought. For example, rusted iron elements can often mean that the drainage systems are blocked. Poor drainage can lead to warped floorboards or beams.

Whether buying in Port Isaac or elsewhere, difficult drainage systems do not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to resolve.
