Top tips for a Skegness Home Buyers Survey

Most of the architecture in Skegness looks back only as far as the later Victorian period, after the town had started to become a resort and the railway had arrived.

Most of the land in the modern centre of Skegness formed part of the estate of Aldred Lumley, 10th Earl of Scarbrough. Realising that that the extensive sandy beach could be made attractive to holidaymakers from the industrial towns of the Midlands, he planned the town as a resort and from 1878 worked with the Lincoln architect James Whitton on its purposed design and layout. As a result, you can still see a fair number of Victorian terraced houses.

Skegness expanded rapidly in the 20th century, and this was accompanied by the building of many standard construction properties both under private and municipal auspices, until the advent of cheaper package holidays in Europe, which particularly became more popular in the 1970s, and provided an alternative to visiting the colder North Sea seaside resorts in Great Britain. That said, the first Butlin's seaside resort, which opened in 1936 in Ingoldmells, is still popular.

At the end of Lumley Road is the Diamond Jubilee Clock Tower, built in 1898-99 and St Matthew's Church of Early English Gothic style is on Lumley Avenue, built by the Earl of Scarbrough in 1879.

There has also been house building in more recent times up to the present date.

Some properties Skegness' locale may be more prone to flooding, whether from coastal waters or from river water, particularly from the River Steeping.

Properties in roads such as Spilsby Road and Primrose Farm in particular have been known to have received flood warnings regarding the River Steeping flooding for example.

One way of receiving more detailed information is to buy an Environmental Search conveyancing search report for the property you're looking to buy; you'll be expected to get one of these if you're buying with a mortgage. The report lists important information on potential flooding risks and a variety of other possible environmental threats which will not only be of interest to you as a buyer but also to your conveyancing solicitor, who can then make further enquiries if necessary.
Local Authority conveyancing property searches can flag up a number of particularly important matters in the locale of a property you're looking to buy in Skegness which might affect it, however they also list any entries regarding planning permissions and building control for that property lodged with the local council.

A recent such conveyancing property search taken out for a property in Thornton-le-fen, LN4 4YJ  revealed that there were entries for both planning permission and building control related to single storey extensions and alterations to existing dwellings. If you were thinking of buying the property, your conveyancer would benefit from knowing that any single storey extensions the dwelling had, had been granted the appropriate sign-offs from East Lindsey District Council.
It's easy to underestimate the value of the Regulated Drainage and Water Search conveyancing property search, however it provides essential information which confirms – or not – the basic habitability of a property in terms of water and sanitation and that is why lenders insist on mortgage buyers taking one out for a property they're looking to buy.

A recent such search taken out for a property in New Bolingbroke PE22 7JU, in the neighbourhood of Skegness, revealed, for example, that there was a public sewer within 30.48 metres (100 feet) of the property, an essential for modern housing. Additionally, although there isn't always an entry, the report can reveal whether there is a problem with low water pressure affecting a property.

Lincolnshire 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.

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.

Choosing the right survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, to get is important however both a HomeBuyers Report and a Building Survey will identify any suspicions of the main defects discussed below.

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 Skegness 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.
