About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Redruth

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Redruth and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Redruth property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make alterations, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, but it does provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Redruth property's state of repair in addition to advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The Fletton brick on this converted apartment has deteriorated. What are the possible consequences? Does brick decay faster in Redruth weather?

Brick-built Redruth apartments do benefit from many advantages. Unfortunately, they also suffer from diverse problems. One defect surveyors commonly report on brick buildings is sulphate attack, caused by moisture interacting with sulphates in cement, and will destroy the structural integrity of the wall.

Brick-constructed property can be found across the UK, leading to a range of techniques. For example, Monk bond, which is similar to Flemish bond, but with two long bricks between every short one. The apparent simplicity of brick repairs compared to plumbing or rewiring can lead to a DIY effort making a situation worse. Seek advice before undertaking such work, and do not disregard your surveyors advice.

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller's agent said there is a danger of dusty asbestos wallpaper concealed in the home. What is asbestos, are there any risks, can it be handled easily and Should I be concerned?

Asbestos is a deleterious fibrous material. Some types may be in building materials e.g. acoustic tiles. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has excellent sound absorption properties, it may be found in acoustic ceilings for example.

All forms including Chrysotile are ultimately potentially deadly and might lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Its existence does not necessarily constitute a risk to health.

If discovered, one must be careful however, on no account to damage it. Professional advice must be taken urgently. On no account endeavour to remove it yourself. Surveyors will not confirm the existence asbestos as part of the survey. Your surveyor will report on potential asbestos during the Redruth survey and will offer advice.
