Top tips for a Worksop Home Buyers Survey

These include: the Grade I listed Rutford Abbey, originally a Cistercian Abbey, constructed of rubble, brick, dressed stone and ashlar with ashlar dressings and plain tile roofs, converted to a country park; Worksop Manor, a Grade I listed 18th-century country house with 2 and 3 storeys of ashlar with hipped slate roofs; Welbeck Abbey house, a palatial Grade I listed building which has been considerably replaced and refurbished over 100s of years; Thoresby Hall, a grade I listed 19th-century country house with a hall constructed of rock-faced ashlar with ashlar dressings and built in four storeys with a square floor plan surrounding a central courtyard, nine bays wide and eight bays deep; Clumber Park Chapel, Grade I listed and built in Gothic Revival style and Nottingham Castle art gallery and museum, which was originally built in the Middle Ages but most of which has been demolished or burnt down, but which has been considerably renovated to give an impression of its considerable layout.

Survey Tip 1

Survey Tip 3

if a property you're looking to buy is in an area where there's known to be either current or historic mine works, it's worth considering getting an additional Coal and Brine Mining 
Search and if you're buying with a mortgage, your lender might well insist on it.

These reports, as their name implies state findings which might affect the property - or indeed they might state that there isn't any of these – and a recent such report, bought for a property in Finsbury Close, Dinnington, Sheffield S25 3RZ flagged up that past underground coal mining activity had occurred – although this should not currently be causing ground movement – and future coal mining activity was possible because coal reserves are known to exist in that area.

So this report can provide reassurance to a buyer and their conveyancing solicitor, but it might also prompt further enquiries and even encourage a buyer not to continue with the purchase.
As a parishioner you can actually face a claim from your local parish church for chancel repair, which is where the local church, due to ancient statutes, can claim on parishioners to share the costs of making repairs or refurbishments to the church chancel/church roof and where these occur, they 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 White Park Place, Retford DN22 7ZB, in the locale of Worksop. This policy generally costs around £20 to buy and normally covers the policy holder for claims to the limit of £1 million. One other approach is to get a Chancel Search, which reveals if the property you're looking to buy is in a parish where your local church can make such a legitimate claim on you.
The Environmental Search is excellent for reporting on environmental issues which might either affect your enjoyment of a property you're thinking of buying or even threaten it and additionally might affect whether you can get insurance or the level of premium you might be expected to pay. A recent such search bought for a property in Nelson Street, Retford, DN22 6LP revealed that there was not only a risk of flooding within 50m of the property but also that the dwelling was within 4km of a well used for energy exploration or extraction and further, an area licensed for onshore energy exploration and production and finally that the home was within 4km of existing or proposed wind farms or wind turbines.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A Home Buyers Survey identifies many different defects or potential risks that can be found within a property and is an essential part of any home buying process. The survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is completed by a Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) registered Surveyor so they are fully trained to provide you with the detail you need to give you the salient facts when you are looking to buy your home in Worksop.

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 your Home Buyers Survey highlights concerns relating to any of these defects your surveyor explains what the issue is in detail and provides a recommendation as to what you should do to further investigate. An example of this is if your surveyor spots signs of damp within the property. Over 5,000 properties a week in the UK have damp proofing laid to combat the issue of rising damp and home buyers fear seeing mould, peeling wall paper and sodden floors as these are all tell-tale signs of rising damp.

If your property is showing these signs and your surveyor notes using their damp monitor that there is damp internally they'll advise you to get a damp specialist to attend the property, confirm the issue advising whether it is rising damp and quote for the costs in repairing with damp proofing.

If you're looking at buying a home in Worksop which is showing signs of damp, or any other defects then you MUST get a Home Buyers Survey. The costs for repairing the defects can run into thousands of pounds; however, If you can identify the problem before you purchase then you can get quotes for fixing it and either share the costs with the seller, or, in worst case examples, choose not to proceed.

Does the survey include photos?

This depends on the surveyor completing the survey in Worksop as some do not include photos. HomeBuyer Reports will rarely come with photos. The surveyor may take photos and store them for his pwn personal records.

You should always ask at the outset if the surveyor includes photos. Examples provided that include photos may not be reflective the the work undertaken by your specific surveyor.
