HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Mousehole property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out major works on the property, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Mousehole property's general condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

A builder friend noted there is a risk of asbestos coatings spayed on beams at the property. What are the issues with asbestos, are there any health risks and does the HomeBuyer report cover this?

Asbestos is a harmful fibrous material. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) are often building materials including insulating board. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has good fire retarding qualities and it may be found in coatings spayed on beams. Technically all forms including white ( Chrysotile) are ultimately hazardous and may lead to lung cancer or scarring of the lung if inhaled over sustained periods. If discovered, one must be careful on no account to move it and expert advice should be sought immediately.

Surveyors will not test for asbestos on a Mousehole HomeBuyer report. However, surveyors will mention possible asbestos during the survey and will inform you of the options.

Traditionally built property

What do I need to look out for when purchasing a house built in around 1710? What consequences will the thatched roof have on maintenance?

Vernacular, or traditional, architecture can be problematic. Homes built using traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be expensive to repair. You should bear in mind that specialist knowledge may be needed. Especially for listed property, Traditional materials may be required. Mention this to your building surveyor for more information. Constructed in the 16th century, Keigwin Place in Mousehole is a good example of a Post Medieval manor house.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does the Mousehole home survey include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of professional fees e.g legal fees)

The Homebuyer Report contains a valuation in addition to a reinstatement cost as a standard part of the survey. To be able to determine the valuation your chartered surveyor will take into account area knowledge as well as other factors relating to the property for instance: state of repair Surveyors also examine style of architecture and use other assumptions like there would be no cause to alter the valuation revealed by inspecting parts not inspected.

A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

It will be assumed that there is an absence of any compromising legal issues like access to the property over estate roadways. These will be investigated by your conveyancing solicitor.

Additional local Mousehole area conjectures, for example problematic roads and access, are made in addition to any environmental concerns like the property being underneath a flight path, which are also considered as part of the valuation.
