Top tips for a Hinckley Home Buyers Survey

Hinckley has some surviving buildings going back a few hundred years, such as the Great Meeting, a notable early example of nonconformist architecture with a galleried interior, completed in 1722, however its main expansion was in the late Industrial Revolution/Victorian period, when buildings such as the Cottage Hospital (1899) were constructed.

Municipal and private housing was built in the early decades of the 20th century of relatively standard construction and the area was subject to many new housing developments in the 1950s, 1960s and 1990s as suburbs such as West Hinckley, Forest View, Hollycroft, Middlefield, Saxon Paddock and Wykin Estate expanded.

Parish church claims on parishioners for chancel repair, where these occur, can be fairly costly, with individual households possibly being legally required to pay £1,000s.

Buying a chancel repair indemnity insurance policy for a property you're looking to buy is an easy and efficient way of protecting yourself against this possible eventuality and among many others, one such policy was taken out for a property in Troon Way, Burbage, Hinckley LE10 2GX. This policy generally costs around £20 to buy and normally covers the policy holder for claims to the limit of £1 million.
The Local Authority Search Report is insisted upon if you're buying a property with a mortgage. You'll have to purchase on in this situation, however it's invaluable to both yourself and your conveyancing solicitor.

The report lists any land charges which affect the property you're considering buying, such as any tree preservation orders, smoke control orders and much more. Additionally it lists any planning permissions which have been sought or granted for work on the property and any building control sign-offs. A recent such report bought for a property in Orchard Street, Hinckley LE10 1DZ revealed that there was a FENSA record for work completed on windows which not only shows that the work was carried out officially but also that a certificate exists even if the vendor does not produce one.
The Environmental Search Report can reveal many environmental factors, if they are present, which might affect your enjoyment of a property you're looking to buy. A recent such report, taken out for a property in Narborough Road, LE9 3AW, was sited within 4km of existing or proposed wind farms/wind turbines. These structures can cause visual and sonic pollution.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A RICS Home Buyers Survey involves an examination of the structure of the inside and the outside of a property aimed at pinpointing issues such as subsidence, damp, cracks, infestation and damage.

The survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is non-intrusive and is highly recommended if you are looking at buying a property in Hinckley.

NB If you're a first time buyer, you might wish to click on What is a House Survey to find out more, including what happens during the inspection.

Should any issues be flagged up in the Home Buyers Survey, our surveyor will tell you what you need to do to get more in-depth advice on the extent and seriousness of the issue and what needs to be done to remedy it. 

If you are worried about a crack or cracks or indeed any other defects that you think your property in Hinckley has, we strongly recommend you get a Home Buyers Survey as the cost of remedying the problem might snowball into many thousands of pounds further down the line.

As an example of the costs, underpinning a property due to subsidence can be upwards of £10,000.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

People have been known to confuse a mortgage valuation with a HomeBuyers Survey. This confusion can prove costly and end up in a home buyer having to fork out for expensive repair costs which should have been shared with the vendor with this reflected in a reduction in the original sale price. Your lender conducts its own mortgage valuation to calculate the value of the property you are looking at buying in Hinckley and this is in no sense a report on structural defects.

A HomeBuyers Survey notes defects as well as including a full valuation of a property independently of the mortgage lender or anyone else. The information in it can be used to get quotes for the cost of fixing any issues and presents evidence for bargaining with the seller about sharing repair costs, if appropriate.
