HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Gunnislake and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Gunnislake property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out an extension, it would be better that you book a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will offer comprehensive details of the Gunnislake property's general condition as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should I be wary of when buying a house in the region a rubbish landfill

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes e.g. non-hazardous waste. Nobody really wants to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Risks might include leaking underground tanks from petrol stations for example .

Surveyors will note structural defects connected with the landfill. Your solicitor will conduct conveyancing and environmental searches of the Environmental Agency data sets in addition to Cornwall Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .

Shocking Electrics

When I viewed the home I am meaning to acquire, it appeared that there could be corrosion of the wiring. Will a Gunnislake survey report on the electrical system?

During a Gunnislake Homebuyer Report the surveyor should usually comment on the overall electrical system if it looks like the electrics are in a dangerous condition. A Surveyor should also provide detail on potential areas for concern such as verifying the condition of any fitted appliances like water heaters. Looking at any documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring conducted by a suitably qualified electrician should be part of the survey. A check for the documents from a test on the condition of the electrical connections conducted by an electrician on the building should usually form part of the survey in Gunnislake .

The IEE advise that a Periodic Inspection Report (PIR) be conducted at least every 10 years (5 if letting). We recommend you always get Gunnislake help on all things electrical - GJS Electrical Contractors , 1 Pine View, Gunnislake, PL18 9JF .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are planning to buy a 1984-built property in Gunnislake and saw that there is a 14mm gap between the kitchen wall and the door frame. Is this a serious concern, and what subsidence information does the Gunnislake HomeBuyer Report include?

Movement of the foundations of a structure is called subsidence. A builder should return to a new structure after some months so that they can make minor repairs caused by the settlement.

Soil on ground which slopes downward is not as stable as that sitting flat and may become unstable and start to slip downhill. A sudden, severe shift in weather can also impact a house susceptible to further settlement, either as a result of poor construction, materials or existing damage.

Restoration work cannot begin until the original source of the movement is found.This is not always as costly as some buyers fear.Though tree roots are often the cause, removal of this plant life may make the problem worse, so professional advice should be sought. Existing trees must be well managed, and new trees should be planted at a safe distance from the exterior walls of the property. Place pine, birch and cherry trees, for example, at least 10m away. Even with professional help, a definite diagnosis can take months.
