About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Perranporth

HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Perranporth and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Perranporth property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make major works, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give a more detailed analysis of the Perranporth property's condition and it includes information on defects and maintenance options .

I am purchasing a Perranporth property and the seller has confirmed that it has been constructed with Slate. Which defects should we consider?

Issues including cracks affect many stone-walled Perranporth property. Irregular stone walls are found throughout the county, and can require more care and attention that regular, brick-like stone walls due greater impact the weather can have on exposed mortar.

Regular courses of ashlar (cut stone) are often used as a finish to irregular stone walls. You can request advice on the specific steps to be taken when a problem is identified.

Common guidance may include cleaning loose fragments and dirt before repointing or applying any treatment or fixative, to slow decay.
