HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in St Agnes and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same survey.

If the St Agnes property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it will offer an in-depth analysis of the St Agnes property's state of repair as well as advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What sort of issues will my RICS Surveyor look out for on a spar dash rendered (stucco) regency house in St Agnes.

Stucco is in fact a sort of flat finish render. Typically it is applied to red brick to form a smooth stone like surface. The effect is very attractive and is was often applied to Regency houses. It is almost exactly the same as plaster in its constituency. It can contain lime (which makes it set harder) in it in addition to a wire under mesh. to stop cracks. it can be prone to defect and Surveyors in St Agnes can focus on issues e.g. when stucco is exposed to driving rain which becomes saturated prone to damage from frost. Other issues could result from the difficulty is discovering damp underneath. Re-applying Stucco problems may be surprisingly expensive as skilled tradesmen are getting more difficult to find.

House Prices

I would like to purchase a house in St Agnes. What different issues will your surveyor take into account when conducting a Home Survey ?

There are a huge number of issues that can add to or subtract from house prices ranging from whether correct consents are in place to the quality of the bathroom and fittings. .

In order to get a formal home valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation as part of the service. A qualified RICS surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme (established register of valuers).

Conservation area

Will there be any concerns we need to check out when intending to buy an extended house in St Agnes in the vicinity of a conservation area?

There are 9, 300 of conservation areas throughout England and Wales that are designated and monitored by local councils. Your surveyor must have knowledge of local issues and any connection may have on the building. Values will likely be more than prices outside the area which is down to conservation areas being preserved. However a growing number are falling into a state for example - unauthorised alterations to the fronts, roofs and chimneys of buildings

RICS surveyors are trained to report if the home might be classified as such and Section I of your St Agnes Homebuyer Report will advise additional enquiries are raised by your legal representation. Unconsented modifications that do not have Local Authority approval may also be commented on, however these should be concern for the solicitor. Davies Partnership are based in 6 Vicarage Road, Cornwall, Cornwall, TR5 0TJ might be happy to help. Tel: 01872 553 131
