About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Newbiggin By The Sea

HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Newbiggin By The Sea and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Newbiggin By The Sea property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any substantial modifications, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, but it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Newbiggin By The Sea property's condition along with advice on defects and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Should I get a separate valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for rebuilding a retaining wall) and how is it calculated?

The Homebuyer Report contains a RICS qualified surveyor valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate. When calculating an accurate value estimate your independent surveyor will factor in knowledge of Newbiggin By The Sea and other factors relating to the property for instance: number of bedrooms. Surveyors also examine style of architecture and make certain key assumptions e.g. the building connected to mains services such as electricity. A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee by request. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Additional local area conjectures like the access roads not being in private control, are made in addition to any environmental concerns like industrial buildings, which will also be factored in.

Stone block wall damage

Can West Cornwall granite-built properties be hard to maintain. Are there specific potential issues to consider, and what will the survey reveal?

Purchasers in Newbiggin By The Sea should be aware that stone walls can be much weaker than they appear. The problems which can plague poorly maintained stone vary considerably. 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. In addition, lime mortar may feature in the building's construction. Advice for better upkeep will vary according to the needs of individual property, such as repointing mortar with a suitable material. If you are planning to renovate, consider that stone matching services are available, which may be necessary for listed buildings. Locally mined or quarried stone may also be available.
