HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Hayle and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Hayle property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Hayle property's condition in addition to advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the RICS Surveyor look for on a smooth stucco regency home in Hayle.

Stucco (aka pargetting) is in fact just a kind of smooth render. Normally it is layered over brick to form a smooth stone like surface. The coating is very appealing and is common on some Victorian and Regency buildings. It is almost exactly the same as any other render in its nature. Sometimes it can contain lime (which makes it set harder) in it in addition to a plastic under mesh to help stop cracks. Stucco is often prone to defect and Hayle Homebuyer Reports commonly focus on potentially expensive to remedy problems for example, when stucco is exposed to on-going weathering which gets saturated and prone to frost damage. Other issues might result from the difficulty is discovering damp underneath. Re-covering Stucco problems can be costly as the skills are getting harder to find.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We noticed cracks across the render on the outside walls, is this subsidence? What subsidence-related defects will my HomeBuyer Report investigate?

Subsidence is the movement of the foundations of a home which compromises its structural integrity. Most homes experience minor cracking which will not affect the building's structure. New buildings in Hayle and properties with new structural alterations will be particularly susceptible. Most homes in Hayle are built with a variety of materials, and these will have varying rates of shrinkage.

There are several frequently-occurring causes of subsidence. Collapsed drains, including mains drains, can cause subsidence by washing away or loosening subsoil. This is an example of groundwater subsidence. A sudden change in the weather can also impact a house susceptible to further settlement, either because the structural integrity is already compromised, or due to the use of cheaper materials.

The root cause of any subsidence must be found before repairs can commence. It has been estimated that around 70% subsidence cases are caused by tree roots drawing moisture from the soil. If the load-bearing parts of the property have been damaged, these may be repaired with steel rods, fixed into place with cement to restore the structural integrity of the building. Chartered surveyors should be able to identify a subsidence problem, while structural engineers may also be required.

House Prices

There is a detached property in TR27 in Hayle on with a local agent for £237, 552. What things does a RICS surveyor consider when estimating house prices in Hayle ?

There are a huge number of issues which could have a bearing on house prices like the likelihood of getting planning permission to extend or whether the property is overlooked. It may help to benchmark prices house values recorded in the same area for similar houses.

The means house prices recorded between Jul and Oct 2012 was £210, 852, which is £26, 700 less than the amount you are intending to pay. The house/flat average was £199, 713. 15, Fairglen, Hayle, Cornwall, Cornwall, TR27 4DL a detached property was sold in the last 3 months for £450, 000 .

An impartial way for home buyers to get an accurate and professional property valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation as a core component. Your RICS surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (mandatory since 2011).
