HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Bodmin and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Bodmin property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, you should you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Bodmin property's condition as well as including information on defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

We're purchasing a structure in Bodmin - What does a Bodmin house surveyor investigate as part of the survey?

Questions like this are often asked of chartered surveyors by property purchasers who are aware that property can be blighted by roofing problems. From the gables to the collar ties, the status of the whole roof should be reviewed. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like a slope of less than 12 to 15 degrees.

Repairs to a dilapidated roof need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A building survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will be

facing. If a estimate for roofing work is required, a contractor in Bodmin can provide one. Contact R C C Roofing Ltd of 26B Normandy Way, Bodmin, PL31 1EX on 01208 74736 to request a quote.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Bodmin, what warnings would the surveyor give for a 90s house constructed with brick chimney?

Bodmin brick-walled residential property can suffer from various issues and defects, from efflorescence to crumbling mortar. For example, sulphate attack, caused by moisture interacting with sulphates in cement, and will destroy the structural integrity of the wall and may require immediate attention. Watts Brickwork should be able to assist with a maintenance quote. Contact them at 01639 842459 or Unit 6 Gurnos Ind Est/Bethel Rd, Ystalyfera, Swansea, SA9 2HW.

For buyers with an eye for detail, less used styles of brick course include shiner bond describes bricks are laid horizontally as with more common bonds, but the with the wider face parallel to the wall. The advice of a brickwork specialist should be sought before attempting repairs.
