HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Messingham and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same.

If the Messingham property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This option is less cheap however it will give a thorough analysis of the Messingham property's condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any considerations we should be aware of when planning to buy a period property in Messingham in the vicinity of conservation area ?

There are nearly 10, 000 of conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are governed by local councils.

Home Buyers Surveys in Messingham must possess knowledge of local issues and the connection they have with the building. House prices are usually greater because of them being in their original state. However many have been neglected and are in a poor state e.g. increasing amounts of scruffy green spaces

RICS surveyors will note if the house could be is designated and Section I of the Messingham Homebuyer Report will advise additional due diligence and enquiries are carried out by the solicitor or conveyancer. Unauthorised changes that do not have Local Authority approval will also be noted in the survey, however these should be concern

for your legal representative. Hetts Johnson Whiting are based in 11 Bigby Street, North Lincolnshire, Lincolnshire, DN20 8EP might be prepared to tell you what to look out for. Tel: 01652 655 101

Damaged Render

What sort of thing will the Surveyor look for on a stucco rendered Victorian home in Messingham.

Stucco (aka pargetting) is in fact a form of render. Normally stucco is layered over brick hardens to a flat surface, often then trowled to give the appearance of stone blocks. The finish is very aesthetic and is found on Victorian and Georgian properties. it can be problematic and Surveyors frequently report issues such as when it is faced with constant driving rain which gets saturated prone to damage from frost. Other issues might result from the supporting heavy loads such as cracking under the roof joists. Fixing Stucco problems may be difficult and costly as the skills are getting rarer.

Stone block wall damage

I am purchasing a cottage and the agent has told us that it has been built with Slate. What problems should we be aware of?

Stone walls often appear more robust than they are. Problems which impact stone-built Messingham houses can vary greatly, with issues like deteriorating mortar being quote common. Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to Messingham houses, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used for elements such as the junctions of external walls. Stone will also decay as a result of environmental conditions, for example, granite is more water resistant that most other stones.

Home Buyers Surveys will usually offer guidance on these matters. An example would be fast replacement of any stones which have become loose.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Kettleby Quarry, Brigg Road, Kettleby, Brigg, Lincolnshire, DN20 9HL, quarrying Sand & Gravel, for details. Call 01472 859000 for more information.
