HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Saxilby and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Saxilby property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any significant alterations on the property, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Saxilby property's state of repair in addition to more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

We are planning to buy a home and the agent has confirmed that it has been partially constructed with Slate. Which related issues should we consider?

Locally quarried stone may be more susceptible to specific issues. Faults common to poorly maintained stone walls can include penetrating damp. The two main forms of mortared stone wall construction found in Saxilby are regular and irregular.

Dry stone construction is used in garden walls and field boundaries, but is rarely employed for inhabited structures. Both regular or irregular stone can be mortared with lime-based mortar, though the advent of Portland cement made lime mortar. Property surveys should give some repair guidance, like cleaning loose fragments and dirt before repointing or applying any treatment or fixative, to slow decay.

The sheer breadth of varying stone materials can make it difficult for purchasers to correctly identify the particular stone used in the building of a home. Quarries in Saxilby should be able to supply local stone.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Roc Oil (UK) Ltd, High Street, Saxilby, Lincoln, Lincolnshire, LN1 2JQ, which quarries Oil, for details. Call 01522 704580 for more information.

Damage resulting from flooding

We are buying a residence in Saxilby, does the Saxilby surveyor investigate any water damage, or if other houses on the street have been affected?

Flooding has become a major issue, not least because last year was the second wettest on record, and it is not clear that reasonably-priced flooding insurance will be available in years to come. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable. In addition, the house survey may make recommendations for repair work or improved flood protection.Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the house or on adjacent sites. Also included on Environment Agency's flood alert are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.
