Home Buyers Survey in Newquay

HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Newquay and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same survey.

If the Newquay property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out alterations, you should you book a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it will give you comprehensive details of the Newquay property's state of repair as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any problems I should verify when planning to buy an extended house in Newquay near a conservation area ?

There are over 9, 000 of designated conservation areas in the UK that are designated and monitored by the local council.

Home Buyers Surveys in Newquay need to have local knowledge of relevant local area issues and the bearing they have with the home and its value. Prices will be significantly higher as a result of the areas retaining original features.

Property surveyors are trained to tell you if the property is possibly is so classified and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Newquay Homebuyer Report will suggest further enquiries are carried out by your legal adviser. Unsympathetic extensions that do not have Local Authority approval may also be advised, however these should be investigated by your lawyer. Ralph & Co Solicitors Llp are based in 20 Cliff Road, Cornwall, Cornwall, TR7 1SG should be prepared to tell you what to look out for. Tel: 01637 872218

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a Newquay property built in the mid 30s, but it has clay foundations. Can the Home Buyers Survey investigate this?

A common source of queries that surveyors face from home buyers is subsidence, particularly in areas where the soil is rich in clay. Subsidence is one obvious concern, but there are others, including compression of layers of the sub-soil. There may be little evidence of underlying defects. Signs like warped window frames in the bedroom can be an early warning, suggesting severe underlying structural deficiencies. Fortunately, there are steps a home owner can take. Your surveyor should refer to maintenance options in their report, like checking that the downpipe drains correctly.

Damaged Render

What problems will the Newquay Surveyor look for on a stucco rendered regency home in Newquay.

Stucco is in fact just a sort of flat finish render. Normally it is layered over underlying brick that sets to a smooth stone like surface. The coating is very aesthetic and is often found on Victorian and Georgian properties. Stucco is often prone to defect and Surveyors can show any number of problems e.g. trapped moisture culminating in problems with damp.

Another example of problems associated with stucco might involve attack from sulphates or salts derived from wet underlying brickwork. Resolving Stucco problems can be surprisingly expensive as the skills are becoming rarer.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a Building survey in Newquay include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate and how is it calculated?

The Homebuyer Report contains a property valuation and a reinstatement cost as part of the survey. In order to determine the property's value the valuer will refer to awareness of the Newquay property market and other things relating to the property for instance: general condition The valuer will also consider style of architecture and will make certain other assumptions e.g. no contamination in or from ground.

A Building Survey won't include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Further Newquay conjectures, such as use of communal facilities or services, are made in addition to Newquay environmental concerns like nearby pubs, which are also considered as part of the valuation.
