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 .

Building Surveys on houses

The report (set out in the surveyor's individual format) outlines full and relevant insight concerning the property's standard of construction and repair in conjunction with any technical details after a thorough inspection of any accessible parts.

. External buildings will, in addition, be surveyed.

Damage resulting from flooding

What's the danger of flooding in Bodmin. Can a chartered surveyor inquire into flooding?

The impact of flooding, both in the region of Bodmin and nationwide, is a serious concern for owners; sensible owners and home purchasers in Bodmin are right to consider precautions. Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the house in Bodmin in question is in danger, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures.

Familiarity with characteristics of the local area likely to affect residential property enables the home surveyor to surmise flooding may be a risk, even if the property has not itself flooded before. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a house survey if the home surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the residential property is at risk.
