Top tips for a Scunthorpe Home Buyers Survey

Scunthorpe's housing development took off with the formation of iron works in the Victorian period from the 1850s and similarly with the arrival of the railway. The population massively increased during the period, from 1,245 in 1851 to 11,167 in 1901. Therefore there are very few properties which still exist from the pre-Victorian period.

St John's Church in Church Square was completed in 1891: JS Crowther designed the building which is in the perpendicular style and constructed it from Frodingham ironstone.

Scunthorpe's population – and industry – continued to expand in the 20th century which occasioned the construction of many houses, starting from the early part of the century, including for example the council estate which includes Manifold Road. You can find terraced houses in Wensleydale Road and 1930s standard construction semi-detached houses in Warley Road.
There are many modern developments also, such as townhouse homes in Ennerdale Lane.

LincolnshireLincolnshire Lincolnshire is a county in the east of England and its county town in Lincoln, which is where the county council is situated. Land use here is predominantly agricultural. It is the second largest of the English ceremonial counties.

It is notable for not having any major urban areas, although the coastal population can rapidly rise seasonally because of the coast’s popularity with tourists visiting places such as Skegness and Mablethorpe. The ambience is predominantly rural, with, for example, shops in most areas remaining closed on Sundays.

The county is particularly popular also with birdwatchers, who flock(!) to the fenland areas in the southeast of the county and the nature reserves at Gibraltar Point, Saltfleetby and Theddlethorpe.

Villages are generally self-contained. The county borders Norfolk, Cambridgeshire, Rutland, Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire, South Yorkshire and the East Riding of Yorkshire. Additionally, it has a border with Northamptonshire in the south: the shortest county boundary at a tiny 20 yards/18 metres.

Lincoln has two universities, the University of Lincoln and Bishop Grosseteste University.

Do I really need a survey?

Surveys are very useful.

They can help you avoid any expensive surprises that may pop out in the future, as well as giving you peace of mind that the property you are buying is structurally sound.

With the information from the survey you might reconsider whether to buy the property or try and renegotiate the price, if you find it needs lots of repairs, it is reasonable to ask for some money of the price.

Alternatively, you might ask the seller to fix the problems before you buy it.

The last resort is to pull out from buying the property altogether.
