Top tips for a Hull Home Buyers Survey


Hull has a huge breadth of architectural styles. It has no cathedral; but since 13 May 2017, it has a Minster, Hull Minster. This was formerly known as Holy Trinity Church, and dates to about 1300.

The town prospered during the 16th and early 17th centuries, and Hull's affluence at this time is preserved in the form of several well-maintained buildings from the period, including Wilberforce House, now a museum documenting the life of William Wilberforce.

The University of Hull was founded in 1927 and many of the suburban areas on the western side of Hull were built in the 1930s, particularly Willerby Road and Anlaby Park, as well as most of Willerby itself. This was part of the biggest British housing boom of the 20th century. However during the Second World War; much of the city centre was destroyed and some 95% of the houses were damaged or destroyed.

In the early 21st century spending boom before the late 2000s recession the city saw large amounts of new retail, commercial, housing and public service construction spending. For example the 50-stall indoor Edwardian Trinity Market, a grade II listed building, and Hepworth's Arcade were modernised and renovated in the late 2000s. The city centre railway station, and adjacent bus terminal were also redeveloped, and were official opened in 2009, as the Hull Paragon Interchange.

You're expected to get a Regulated Drainage & Water Search as standard when you're looking to buy a property using a mortgage. However a brief look at the contents of such a report, such as one bought by a client for a property in Fletton Avenue, Hull HU3 5ED in the Blackburn area, shows how important the findings in the report are.

For example, the report revealed that, should any building which is or forms part of the property be at risk of internal flooding due to overloaded public sewers, then insurance is in place to cover any damages and provide compensation. Additionally, the report revealed that should the property suffer from low water pressure or flow, insurance was also in place. People underestimate how important having decent pressure in the water supply to a home can be – but you'd want to know that insurance is in place for this eventuality because the displeasure caused by low water pressure in terms of how taps and particularly baths function is considerable, to say the very least!
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 Honeysuckle Close, DN4 7DJ in the hinterland of Hull. This policy generally costs around £20 to buy and normally covers the policy holder for claims to the limit of £1 million.
Hull's noise traffic levels are most raised along the path of the A63/Hessle Road and affect residential properties in and around the area, such as in streets like Edgar Street and Walker Street.

YorkshireYorkshire is the largest county in the United Kingdom and it is made up of large subdivisions; North Yorshire, South Yorkshire, West Yorkshire and East Riding of Yorkshire; which administer their own parts of it although the whole is still recognised as a cultural region and geographical territory.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A RICS Home Buyers Survey is a visual inspection of the grounds and the internal/external structure of the property and identifies defects such as cracks or damage to the structure of the property, subsidence, damp and infestations.

Some of these defects you may not even see or know what to look for which makes getting a homebuyers survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, if you are thinking of buying a property in Hull incredibly important.

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 HomeBuyers 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 affecting your property in Hull 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 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.

How long does your survey take?

We book the earliest possible slot for your RICS surveyor to carry out their inspection for your RICS home buyers survey. Then, on the day, they visit the property and inspect all accessible areas, concentrating on signs and suspicions of defects and issues.

The actual time your surveyor takes over the inspection varies with each property – you can imagine that one for a small flat for a HomeBuyers Report will normally take less than one for a large mansion for a Building Survey. It is likely to be anything between 1 ½ hours to 3 hours.

SAM Conveyancing's RICS surveyors call you on the day of the inspection after carrying it out to go over any major concerns and findings and then they complete the report and return it to you within 5 working days.
