HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is basically the same the same.

If the Looe property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out significant alterations, you should you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Looe property's condition as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

I am buying an older renovated farmhouse in Looe. Will the house's age be a concern?

Vernacular architecture can concern buyers. Looe property built using traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be costly to repair. You should bear in mind that expert knowledge may be needed. Especially for Looe listed buildings, .

Construction materials, such as period brick or roof tiles, may be required.

Asbestos roof tiles

The vendor has mentioned there are asbestos flooring materials being found in property. What are the issues with asbestos, are there any health risks, what are the remedial options and Should I be worried?

Asbestos is a harmful fibrous material of several naturally occurring materials. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White may be in building materials for example patching compounds.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has excellent fire retarding properties, it may be found in vinyl flooring. Technically all forms including white ( Chrysotile) are deadly and might lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure.

If found, care should be taken not to break it and expert advice must be taken immediately. You should not try to remove it yourself. Surveyors cannot tell you whether there is asbestos on a survey. They will note potential asbestos risks and should offer advice.

Conservation area

Will there be any things I should consider if purchasing a flat in Looe near a conservation area ?

There are around ten thousand of designated conservation areas throughout the country that are designated and monitored by the local council. Your surveyor need to possess sufficient knowledge of relevant local considerations and the relation they have with the building and its value. Prices is usually significantly higher as a result of them retaining original features.

Surveyors are trained to note if the house might be classified as such and Section I of a Looe Homebuyer Report will advise additional due diligence and enquiries are raised during the conveyancing process. Unconsented adjustments that do not have Local Authority approval may be advised but these are really more a investigated by your legal representative. Mark Grassam Solicitors are based in Fore Street, Cornwall, Cornwall, PL13 1DN will be happy to tell you what to look out for. Tel: 01503 262 119
