Top tips for a Lincoln Home Buyers Survey


Lincoln is a cathedral city and is the county town of Lincolnshire in the East Midlands; it developed from the Roman Lindum Colonia, which itself dated back to an Iron Age settlement. It hosts Lincoln Cathedral, whose construction of its modern form, i.e. its English Gothic architecture, was completed in 1311.

The uphill area comprises the northern part of the city, on top of the Lincoln Cliff (to the north of the gap). This area includes the historical quarter, including Lincoln Cathedral, Lincoln Castle and the Medieval Bishop's Palace, known locally as The Bail (although described in tourist promotional literature as the Cathedral Quarter).

It also includes residential suburbs to the north and north-east. The downhill area comprises the city centre (located in the gap) and the suburbs to the south and south-west. The aptly named Steep Hill is a narrow, pedestrian street connecting the two.

New build developments include the detached houses in Thorpe Lane, the terrace houses in The Colosseum, Newport and the flats in Wordsworth Street, among others.

Properties in Lincoln which are built in close proximity to the River Witham and Fossdyke Navigation, in streets such as Derwent Street and Foss Bank, are in areas where flood warnings and alerts are issued from time to time.

If you are concerned that a property you are looking to buy is in a flood risk area, you should consider getting a flood risk report (click for more details).
Some properties in Lincoln are located nearby to areas to be explored for their energy potential by the oil & gas industry – they must be licensed by the Oil and Gas Authority – and such exploration includes areas subject to hydraulic fracturing ("fracking") investigation.

A recent environmental search carried out for a property in Vanwall Drive, for example, flagged up that the property was built within 4km of an area licensed for onshore energy exploration and production.
According to the UK Government's Public Health England, some areas of Lincoln, including streets such as Vanwall Drive and Grantham Raod A607, are in a raised radon area, with properties built there having a higher probability than average of experiencing ground Radon emissions.

The raised Radon area has a maximum radon potential of 10-30% (the percentage is the chance of a property being built where Radon emissions might measure above the action level).

If you are concerned that a property you are buying is in an area of raised Radon, please click to visit Public Health England's UK Radon Map. Click also to find out more about Radon, Radon property searches and much more.

LincolnshireLincolnshire 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, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, non-intrusively inspects both the external and internal structure of a property for matters which include these, among others; damp, subsidence, infestations, cracks and damage.

If you are thinking of buying a property in Lincoln, it is vitally important to book a Home Buyers Survey for your peace of mind.

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.

If the Home Buyers Survey shows up any such problems, our appointed surveyor will explain to you what you should do to get more in-depth information about the type and scope of the matter and what is required to fix it. 

If you are worried about any defects that you think your property in Lincoln has, we strongly recommend you get a Home Buyers Survey as the cost of remedying the problem might grow to many thousands of pounds as time progresses.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

Mortgage lenders in England and Wales require you to a valuation for the property you are buying so that they can gauge whether the amount you are paying is appropriate. This survey is called a Mortgage Valuation. The mortgage valuation is paid for by you however the results aren't always shared with you as the survey belongs to the mortgage lender. On top of which it doesn't include any survey into potential defects or structural issues that are too often found in properties.

There is also a degree of confusion because the mortgage valuation is referred to as a survey and so many buyers assume this is what is meant by 'have you done your survey?' It is important that when buying a property in Lincoln that you arrange your own Homebuyers Survey that reports on defects or potential issues with the property; either a HomeBuyers Report or a Building Survey. Buying without a survey could leave you at the mercy of undetected defects such as rising damp which can cost thousands to repair and would affect your future sale price if not repaired.
