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 .

Conservation area

Will there be any factors I need to look into if buying an extended house in Lincoln in Cathedral and City Centre conservation area, particularly with regards to house prices?

Cathedral and City Centre is in a conservation area and has been classified as at risk by English Heritage, with unknown vulnerability and deteriorating. For further information visit their website or call the administrator - Arthur Ward on 01522 873479. There are around ten thousand of designated conservation areas throughout England and Wales that are designated and monitored by local authorities. Cathedral and City Centre is designated by Lincolnshire County Council at County Offices, Newland, Lincoln, Lincolnshire, LN1 1YL - Call 01522 552 222. Your surveyor must possess local knowledge of local area factors and the relation they have on the property and its value. The price of property is generally greater owing to conservation areas being unspoilt.

Surveyors will report if the planned purchase might be is designated and Section I of your Homebuyer Report will advise additional enquiries are conducted by the solicitor or conveyancer. Unconsented adjustments to the property will also be advised in your survey but these are really more a concern for the solicitor.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We're purchasing a home in Lincoln , and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. What should we do about roof repairs?

Local property in otherwise fine condition can often hide issues with the roof. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from wind braces to sheathing. The Lincoln surveyors could suggest that some of the faults must be dealt with immediately.

The prospect of large bills for roofing jobs (such as thatching) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases, this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a roofing specialist for the job itself. Contact Proline Roofing of 1 Ebony Gr, Lincoln, LN6 0PW on 01522 885005 to request a quote.
