HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Skegness and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is essentially the same.

If the Skegness property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension, you should you select a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, but it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Skegness property's state of repair as well as more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will bugs affect the purchase price of a home - Will the Home Buyers Survey investigate this?

Properties in Skegness are not usually impacted by serious cases of infestations, but buying without any professional advice on the issue is not recommended.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can seriously reduce the value of a property. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months. As an example, cluster, or swarming flies, are often found in lofts and can be a serious, seasonal annoyance if not treated. Remedies to pests can include removal or excision of affected timber.

Asbestos roof tiles

There may be a danger of asbestos boilers concealed in the home. What is asbestos, is it hazardous and will the survey look at this?

Homes erected prior to the mid eighties might include some asbestos based materials. Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous substance. Some types are found in the building materials for example toilet cistern. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has a range of useful characteristic heat resistance qualities and it may be found in textured coatings. It is mainly found in the US.

All forms are potentially fatal and may lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Contrary to breathing in a solitary fibre is not deadly.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered on no account to disturb asbestos and expert advice must be taken as soon as possible. Getting rid of it can be dear and must always be completed by trained experts.

Surveyors do not tell you whether there is asbestos on a Skegness survey. However they will mention potential asbestos and will advise accordingly.

Damage resulting from flooding

Are Skegness properties at risk, and does a RICS surveyor search for flooding damage?

Last year was the second wettest year on record (source: The Times), and home buyers and owners are understandably concerned. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable. Flood water can enter a Skegness house through several routes, including seepage through external walls.

Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. appropriate drainage, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.
