Home Buyers Survey in St Mawes

HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in St Mawes and which is the cheapest?

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

If the St Mawes property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make an extension, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it does give a thorough analysis of the St Mawes property's state of repair and it includes advice on structural defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on flats 1

Do I need to spend a bit more on full structural survey prior to buying a dilapidated, sixties mansion flat in St Mawes?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey. A HomeBuyer Report is sufficient for a post 1950s unmodified St Mawes property assembled from standard construction materials. The Building Survey is definitely the suitable type of survey for the flat described. Following a thorough site survey of the inside and outside of the flat, a written report is posted and emailed to the prospective purchaser setting out in depth and critical details on the condition of the property. There will be certain no go areas with a Building Survey to bear in mind as RICS chartered surveyor is not in a position to force or open up the fabric of the St Mawes property e.g. removing secured panels. Furthermore flats add complexity. and as a result the surveyor will only look at the flat itself although he/she give details of shared areas such as commonly accessible roof spaces.

Damage resulting from flooding

When buying in St Mawes, should we be uneasy about a flood risk, and will the house surveyor search for possible flood damage?

Soil-clogged drainage, rain and overflowing steams could all cause major floods. If you are planning to buy in a flood-affected area, a Home Buyers Survey will inform your decision. It is strongly recommended that the property is protected, before water damage ruins both the walls and floors, and contents. In addition, the Home Buyers Survey may offer suggestions for better flood defences.Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. raised door thresholds. The house surveyor may ask the property owner or occupier about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.
