Top tips for a Southport Home Buyers Survey


Southport only came into existence from 1792 so architecture consists of the odd survival from the Georgian period, many examples from the Victorian period and newer developments from throughout the 20th Century up to the present day. There are many tree-lined streets including along Lord Street, where William Sutton founded the town's original house (a bath house) and which has many examples of Victorian architecture. Southport Pier was opened in August 1860.

Marine Gate Mansions, which consists of luxury apartments is a Grade II-listed Victorian building which was previously a hospital. Smedley Hydro was originally a Victorian hydropathic spa.

Most of the properties from more recent times are of mainly standard construction and consist of terraced houses, semi-detached houses, detached houses and some bungalows.

Some properties in Southport may be built within 4km of an area licensed for onshore energy exploration and production, as an Environmental Search taken out for a property in Albany Road, Southport, Merseyside, PR9 0JD recently revealed. These kind of developments can cause disturbance to the enjoyment of an area.
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 Westrare House, 47 Alexandra Road, Southport PR9 9HD. This policy generally costs around £20 to buy and normally covers the policy holder for claims to the limit of £1 million.
A recent Local Authority search for a property in School Lane, Downholland, L39 7JG revealed that building control regulations had been correctly applied for and signed off regarding a loft conversion.

If you were looking at buying such a property and found that it had been extended, this particular search would tell you if there was an absence of planning permission and compliance with building control regulations sign-off rules. This can cause considerable complications and might even make you pull out of the purchase, which underlines the importance of this particular conveyancing search and why, if you're buying using a mortgage, lenders insist on you getting one.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A RICS Home Buyers Survey 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.

Whichever you opt for out of a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, they are both excellent for peace of mind if you are considering buying a property in Southport.

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 affecting your property in Southport 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.

Is asbestos testing included in my survey? Is the removal cost also quoted?

No, what the surveyor will do is let you know within the report that there are signs of asbestos based on their visual inspection and of the property's general style and age. If there are suspicions of asbestos you would be advised to get an asbestos specialist to test the grade of the asbestos within the property.

We have asbestos surveyors covering Southport and they are all qualified to British Occupational Hygiene Society P402 and some to S301 Standards. All samples are analysed in a UKAS accredited laboratory. At the end of the process you will know what level of asbestos is present and what it will cost for you or the vendor to remove it.
