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 .

For more detailed advice why not obtain an instant Tintagel Survey Quote on our site or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Damage resulting from flooding

We believe this house is located on a flood plain. Is there a major flood risk? Would our HomeBuyer Report investigate possible flooding damage?

Burst dams, poor drainage and tidal activity can cause water damage caused by flooding, and the value of a Tintagel property in an at-risk area may be impacted.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst. The GroundSure Flood Report is one of several risk screening reports designed to provide an overview of whether a property lies within an area of potential or previous flood risk. The Environment Agency also publish details of previous flood warnings.

Landfill site near home

What should I be aware of if buying a building close to a rubbish tip

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes for example: commercial refuse disposal. Understandably, no one really wants to live near one (80% of people live near one). Risks might include complex organic chemicals. Health issues for example downs syndrome have been associated to landfill sites .

Surveyors in Tintagel will find structural problems connected with the site. Your conveyancer will conduct environmental searches of the Environmental Agency database in addition to Cornwall Local Authority and give you the results of the search .

Conservation area

Are there any potential pitfalls we would be advised to check on if planning to buy a home in Tintagel near a conservation area?

There are nearly 10, 000 of designated conservation areas in England and Wales which are designated by local councils. Surveyors in Tintagel are required by RICS to possess sufficient knowledge of local considerations and any connection may have with the home and its value. Property Prices is, more often than not, more than prices outside the area due to them being largely unspoilt However a large number are falling into a poor state for example - increasing amounts of scruffy green spaces

Surveyors are expected tell you if the house looks to be so designated and Section I of a Homebuyer Report will suggest further investigations are conducted by your solicitor. Unapproved changes that do not have Local Authority approval should be noted but these are really more a concern for your lawyer.
