HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Torpoint and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

If the Torpoint property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make major works, you should you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Torpoint property's state of repair and it includes more detailed advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour stated there may be a risk of brown asbestos boiler cupboard being found in property. What is asbestos and will the survey look at this?

Asbestos is a deleterious fibrous material. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) may be in building materials for example boards around windows. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good tensile strength properties, it may be found in boards around radiators. Technically all forms including white ( Chrysotile) are potentially deadly and may lead to lung cancer or asbestosis following prolonged exposure.

If discovered, one must be careful however, on no account to move it and professional advice must be taken immediately. You should never endeavour to get rid of it yourself. Torpoint Surveyors do not tell you whether there is asbestos on a Torpoint survey. Your Torpoint surveyor should note possible asbestos during the survey and will suggest further investigation.

Stone block wall damage

Can Hopton Wood stone-built houses be difficult to repair. Are there any matters that need to be investigated?

Ranging from Mountcharles Sandstone to Purbeck Royal Bed Limestone, the stone used in a home's structure will impact maintenance. Issues including spalling brick affect many stone-walled Torpoint houses.

Regular stone walls are built with prepared or cut stone, called ashlar, and are often easier to maintain than walls of irregular construction. This is a generalisation however, as limestone or sandstone-built and regularly-coursed walls can decay rapidly when exposed to more extreme environmental conditions or pollution. Property surveys should give some repair guidance, like repointing of loose or crumbling mortar.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The stretcher bond walls on this Georgian property appears to have several cracks - what should we do?

Torpoint brick-walled flats can be affected by considerable issues. For example, wall tie failure. This occurs when ties supporting old cavity walls rust, leading to horizontal cracks and separation of the internal and eternal leaves of the wall and may require immediate attention.

To arrange a quote for repairs, contact a local specialist, e.g. 29 at Osprey Dr, Walney, Barrow-In-Furness, LA14 3JS on 01229 470270.

For home purchasers in Torpoint seeking a rare example of brick architecture, look for unusual course styles like English garden wall bond is often a mix of Flemish and Monk bonds.

If the Torpoint surveyor does raise concerns about a brick wall defect or structural issue, it may be wise to speak to a builder before completion to assess the extent and cost of the work.
