HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Tintagel and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Tintagel property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any alterations, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it does give you comprehensive details of the Tintagel property's condition in addition to advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is rain an issue in Tintagel? Where there are issues, what should we do?

The impact of climate change is widely reported, yet rainfall and the effect it can have on Tintagel property are usually overlooked by purchasers. Signs that gutters are under performing include damp stains around drainage, and may lead to rising damp. The good news is that these defects are quite easy to resolve, if caught early. If poorly maintained, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and will get increasingly difficult to successfully resolve.

Asbestos roof tiles

The mortgage valuation surveyor informed me there may be a risk of asbestos pipe insulation in the building. Why would there be asbestos, is it dangerous, can it be remedied and What should I do?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly fibrous mineral. Some types may be in building materials such as cooker insulation.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has good heat resistance qualities and it may be found in stove insulation.

All forms including white are ultimately carcinogenic and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Finding asbestos does not necessarily pose a risk to health.

If discovered, one must be careful not to displace asbestos. Professional advice should be sought as soon as possible. Never attempt to get rid of it yourself. Surveyors will not confirm the existence asbestos on a survey. They will mention possible asbestos during the survey and should recommend relevant tests.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Can I get an independent and professional valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of reconstructing permanent outbuildings) and how is it worked out

A Homebuyer Report on a Tintagel property will include an impartial valuation and a cost of reinstatement as part of the survey. In order to determine the market value your surveyor will call upon awareness of the Tintagel property market as well as other factors about the property for instance: number of bedrooms The surveyor will also consider style of architecture and make certain other assumptions such as the property is connected to mains services such as water. 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. The surveyor relies on standard assumptions that there aren't any impossible to rectify legal problems for example Rights of access and egress over all communal areas. These will be investigated by your solicitor during the legal process.

Additional local area assumptions, like problematic roads and access, are made as well as any significant environmental problems like flood plains, which are also considered as part of the valuation.
