HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Penryn and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is effectively the same survey.

If the Penryn property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, you should you commission a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give you a thorough analysis of the Penryn property's state of repair along with advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

For further advice why not obtain a Penryn House Survey Quote on our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The property we plan to buy is built on clay soil. Can your HomeBuyer Report consider this?

If not monitored appropriately, the make up of the soil surrounding a house's foundations can create difficulties. Subsidence is one obvious concern, but there are others, including sub-soil shrinkage. In Penryn's relatively mild climate, the variations in volume which clay soil experiences will be barely noticeable, but extended dry or wet spells may well impact the soil's stability and affecting the property itself. For example, separation of the skirting board from the floor may be benign, or a clue prompting a more thorough investigation.

Taking precautions, such as checking that the downpipe drains correctly, can make long term maintenance easier, and keep repair costs

manageable. In some more extreme cases, the building foundations may need extra support, but this can be costly.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We're purchasing a house in Penryn. What does a chartered surveyor pay attention to during the survey?

This is a common concern for purchasers with a roofing 'horror story' from a previous home. Homes throughout Penryn can be blighted by damage to the roof, including. Any part of the roof or loft, such as ridge flashing, ought to be checked. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in Penryn, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the surveyors in Penryn will look for a range of signs, including badly installed felting.

Replacement of tiles and other roof repairs need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully.
