Which Building Survey should you choose?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Mablethorpe and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is effectively the same.

If the Mablethorpe property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make an extension, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it will give comprehensive details of the Mablethorpe property's general condition as well as an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Do all Mablethorpe surveys include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of professional fees e.g legal fees) and how is it calculated?

A Homebuyer Report will contain a professional valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as an integral part of the report. To properly appraise the property's value your independent surveyor will call upon experience of property in Mablethorpe and other factors relating to the property for instance: number of bedrooms Surveyors also evaluate materials used and use key assumptions such as the ground is not land filled.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Additional local area conjectures like connection to sewers, are made in addition to Mablethorpe environmental issues like busy roads, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

Conservation area

Are there any factors I would need to look out for if buying a period property in Mablethorpe inside a conservation area ?

There are around ten thousand official conservation areas in England and Wales which are designated by the local authority. Mablethorpe surveyors must have knowledge of relevant local considerations and the bearing they have on the property. House prices will be significantly higher owing to them being in their original state.

Surveyors will note if the property is possibly is so classified and Section I of a Homebuyer Report will recommend additional enquiries are raised during the legal process. Out of keeping modifications to the building may also be advised in your survey, however these should be concern for your legal adviser. Bridge Mcfarland are a local firm situated at 16 Victoria Road, East Lindsey, Lincolnshire, LN12 2AQ will be happy to tell you what to look out for. Tel: 01507 478285

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are planning to buy a property in Mablethorpe and found that the living room floor was uneven. How could this affect the property, and what can be done to resolve subsidence if subsidence is found during the Building Survey?

Movement of a home on a structural level is called subsidence. In addition, some homes in Mablethorpe are built with a variety of materials, each with a different shrinkage rate.

This issue can occur in areas with soil with a high gravel or sand concentration, as this soil is more easily washed away by leaks. A sudden change in the weather can also impact a house susceptible to further settlement, either because the structural integrity is already compromised, or due to the use of cheaper materials.

Finding the cause of any subsidence is key.Repairing leaking drains, water mains or broken downpipes, which are the cause of the subsidence, should be all that is needed to stabilise the home. Chartered surveyors should be able to identify a subsidence problem, while structural engineers may also be required.
