Home Buyers Survey in Skegness

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 .

Stone block wall damage

I am buying a stone-walled cottage. Are there any major defects that we should be aware of, and what does the survey cover?

External wall maintenance is essential to the health of property. The problems which can plague poorly maintained stone vary considerably. Stone quarried in the area is common to local property, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county. Ashlar courses are often used to finish more irregular stone walls. These are employed as a decorative front, with brick or irregular walls. This can give rise to maintenance issues if either element of the wall has been treated with a non-breathable material. A survey will include a range of suggestions or requirements for maintenance, such as careful removal of nearby trees and plants. Be careful not to pull these up by the roots, as they could already be intertwined with the wall's foundations, which will cause more damage.

Ask your surveyor for clarification if you are in doubt as to likely maintenance, particularly if the house in question is listed or located in a conservation area.
