HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Wadebridge and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same.

If the Wadebridge property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations on the Wadebridge property, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Wadebridge property's state of repair along with more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What problems will the Surveyor consider on a smooth stucco coated regency house in Wadebridge.

Stucco is just a sort of flat finish render. Typically stucco render is layered over brick that sets to a smooth surface that is sometimes scored to resemble stone. Stucco is very attractive and is found on Victorian properties. It is similar to plaster and mortar. Sometimes it can contain lime (which makes it set harder) in it as well as a wire under mesh. to help prevent cracks. Stucco is often problematic and Surveyors in Wadebridge frequently discover potentially expensive to remedy problems for instance when it is exposed to on-going weathering which becomes saturated and prone to frost damage

Another example of problems associated with stucco could result from the difficulty is discovering damp underneath. Re-covering problems may be expensive as the skills are becoming harder to find.

Conservation area

Will there be any things I need to be conscious of when buying a building in Wadebridge near a conservation area ?

There are many thousands of designated conservation areas in England and Wales which are governed by the local authority.

A Building Surveyors must have sufficient knowledge of local area issues and the bearing they have on the home and its value. The value of homes will likely be enhanced as a result of them resisting change.

Surveyors are expected inform you whether the location looks like it may be classified as such and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Homebuyer Report will advise suitable questions are raised by your solicitor. Out of keeping extensions that do not have Local Authority approval will also be noted but these are really more a concern for your legal representative. Chisholms are a local firm situated at 58 Molesworth Street, Cornwall, Cornwall, PL27 7DR might be happy to give you some pointers. Tel: 1208812470

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are concerned about bugs. Do we need a residential surveyor?

Property purchasers in Wadebridge should be aware that there is no legal obligation for a seller to disclose a vermin problem. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. An affected property may not always be easy to identify.

For example, sliverfish (lepisma saccharina), are rarely visible during the day. They will digest paper and wallpaper paste, but are more a symptom of damp than a serious problem themselves. Remedies to pests can include use of poison. As awareness of less common problems grows, more surveys should identify these and advise on remedies.
