HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Lincoln property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any works or an extension, you should you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it does provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Lincoln property's state of repair in addition to information on defects and maintenance options .

For more information you can get a Lincoln Home Survey Quote online or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.

English Heritage

I am intending to buy a property close to Barlings Priory , will this affect the property's value?

Barlings Priory is a scheduled monument considered to be of national importance. Monuments of local interest can certainly add to the desirability of an area. Other monuments of importance are Butter Cross, Tattershall, Car Dyke At Linwood Hall and Car Dyke In Nocton Wood.. A RICS surveyor will consider all local and regional criteria when carrying out the homebuyer report in Lincoln. Refer to the English Heritage website for more details on Barlings Priory.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We want to put in an offer on a place in Lincoln. Is there any brick repair advice we should be aware of??

Brick-constructed structures in Lincoln feature several advantages compared to other types of construction, but they can also be subject to a range of defects. Such defects will be discussed in the report, with repair advice also supplied. One defect surveyors commonly report on brick buildings is 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. Contact Bona-Fide Brickwork for a repairs estimate at 01895 674310 or 296 Victoria Rd, Ruislip, HA4 0DP.

For buyers interested in less common uses of brick, consider ornamental chimneys, particularly common in Tudor-period property. Contact a specialist for more information if this is of interest.

Stone block wall damage

We are buying a home with West Cornwall granite walls. Which defects should we consider?

External wall maintenance is essential to the health of buildings in Lincoln. Faults common to poorly maintained stone walls can include mould. Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to buildings in Lincoln, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used for the framing of windows or doors. Upkeep advice often given in a survey includes fast replacement of any stones which have become loose.

Purchasers renovating buildings in Lincoln should be aware that a stone matching service is operated by the British Geological Survey, as part of the Building Stone Assessment GeoReport. To source stone quarried in Lincoln, you can contact local suppliers.

For more details, get in touch with a local firm. Flames Of Lincoln Ltd of 134 High Street, Lincoln, LN5 7PJ, for example, could assist.
