HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Redruth and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Redruth property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make alterations, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, but it does provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Redruth property's state of repair in addition to advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

We are buying a loft-conversion in Redruth - What will our home surveyor check when the structure is surveyed?

This is frequently addressed by building surveyors. A large number of properties can often hide issues with the roof like. From roof battens to sheeting, every element of the roof must be reviewed. Flat roofs are also known for the trouble they can cause, often the result of being literally flat, as opposed to on a small incline so that water can drain correctly.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange. However, buyers should endeavour to compare a number of quotes to find the best deal.

Conservation area

Will there be any issues I would be advised to look out for if purchasing a house in Redruth inside a conservation area ?

There are thousands of designated conservation areas in England and Wales that are designated and monitored by local councils.

Home Buyers Surveys in Redruth must possess knowledge of local area issues and the connection may have on the property. Prices is usually significantly higher owing to them being largely unspoilt However a large number are falling into shoddy condition for example - out of keeping extensions

Surveyors are expected report if the planned purchase looks like it may be classified as such and Section I of a Homebuyer Report will suggest additional enquiries are carried out by your legal adviser.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Do all Redruth surveys include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as professional fees e.g legal fees) and how is it calculated?

Homebuyer Reports include a valuation and a reinstatement cost as an integral part of the report. To ascertain the valuation your chartered surveyor will take into account in depth understanding of the Redruth market as well as other factors relating to the property for instance: state of repair The valuer will also consider construction type and make certain key assumptions like there are no dangerous materials.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Additional local area assumptions, such as use of communal facilities or water and drainage connectivity, are made in addition to Redruth environmental concerns like mining activity, which are also considered as part of the valuation.
