About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Messingham

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 .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We need Monk bond advice, can you help? What impact do Messingham environmental conditions have?

Brick-built structures do benefit from many advantages, but they will also experience a range of defects, including erosion and sulphate expansion. An issue of particular concern is thermal movement, particularly on longer walls.

Styles of brickwork can range from the relatively common, like English bond, featuring alternating rows of long and short faces of bricks, to the rare, such basket weave bonds, with alternating groups of vertically and horizontally arranged bricks.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We're purchasing a home in Messingham - What aspects of the roofing will be investigated when the survey is carried out?

Messingham houses in good condition can be hiding serious difficulties with the roof, for example, missing tiles. From dormer windows to wind braces, every element of the roof should be investigated. Your property surveyors may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

The expense of insulating the attic, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. A quote for the work could be sought from a reliable contractor.

Landfill site near home

What should I be aware of when buying a maisonette proximate to a rubbish dump

Sites used for landfill take many forms for example: domestic waste disposal. Of course nobody wants to live near one (most people do live near one). Concerns include tars and other hazardous materials. Health concerns like congenital birth defects have been linked to landfill sites .

Surveyors will notice structural issues resulting from the site. Your conveyancing solicitor will carry out environmental searches of the Environmental Agency database as well as North Lincolnshire Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .
