About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Mablethorpe

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.

Building Surveys on houses

When purchasing a defective period semi detached home, should I upgrade to a full structural survey?

The Full Structural Survey has a new title and is now called a Building Survey. You should choose the Building Survey for the house you are thinking of buying. A HomeBuyer Report is enough if investigating a 60 year old or less Mablethorpe house made out of typical building materials i.e. brick and tile. Be aware that some limitations are integral with the survey as a qualified surveyor is not authorised open up the structure of the building for example, or advise whether drainage meets appropriate regulations.

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a flood risk in Mablethorpe, and will the chartered surveyor inquire into signs of flooding damage?

It is estimated that over two million homes are at risk of flooding, and property purchasers cannot know that insurance against flooding will continue to be available.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure.

Flood water can enter a property through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls. The GroundSure Flood Report is one of several risk screening reports designed to provide an overview of whether a property lies within an area of potential or previous flood risk. The Environment Agency also publish details of previous flood warnings.

Stone block wall damage

I am buying a stone-walled home in Mablethorpe. What problems must we watch out for?

Buyers of listed property should consider that 'sympathetic' maintenance may be required, which the local authority may police. The problems which can plague poorly maintained stone vary considerably.

Regular stone walls are built with prepared or cut stone, called ashlar, and are often easier to maintain than walls of irregular construction. This is a generalisation however, as limestone or sandstone-built and regularly-coursed walls can decay rapidly when exposed to more extreme environmental conditions or pollution. Both regular or irregular stone can be mortared with lime-based mortar, though the use of this declined with the introduction of cement. Maintenance tips include.
