HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Truro and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Truro property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any major works, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it will give a thorough analysis of the Truro property's condition in addition to information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a surveyor check for flooding, or if neighbour's houses have been affected?

Flooding has become a major issue, not least because last year was the second wettest on record, and the value of a Truro house in an at-risk area may be impacted. It is strongly recommended that proper precautions are taken, before flooding occurs. Flood water can enter a property in Truro through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls.

Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. correctly installed window and door frames. The building surveyor will usually recommend that the purchasers seek legal advice on any related information mentioned in the report.

House Prices

I want to purchase a property in TR1. The vendor is asking £244, 311. What different issues will your Truro chartered surveyor consider when conducting a home buyers survey ?

There is a vast array of things which could affect house prices ranging from whether alterations have planning permission to the over all desirability of the street. As an indicator, one can try to analyse prices achieved in the nearby area for comparable properties.

The average house price completed between Jul and Oct 2012 was £262, 411, which is £18, 100 more than the amount you are paying (£247, 787 was the blended house/flat average). The Smithy, Ladock, Truro, Carrick, Cornwall, TR2 4PQ a detached property was sold in the last 3 months for £35, 000 .

An impartial way for you to get an accurate and professional property valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) by default.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Another resident of the building mentioned that the had been issues with dry rot, and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. What advice would the Truro house surveyor give in their report?

Property in Truro with no other major issues can be hiding serious damage to the roof, including. From the fascias to the collar beams, the status of the whole roof should be reviewed, and where the matter is serious, it should be rectified promptly.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Truro, but it is a health and safety necessity. 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.
