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 Home Buyers Survey is completed by a qualified RICS surveyor and delivers a visual inspection of the property in Southport and the surrounding garden. The aim of the survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is to identify potential risks or defects that you may not know are there such as cracks or damage to the structure of the property, subsidence, damp and infestations.

Level 2 HomeBuyer Report with a Valuation

A HomeBuyer Report, also known as a Home Buyers Survey, is generally suitable for:

  • Bungalows
  • Flats
  • Standard construction houses

The majority of Southport's leasehold flats require only a RICS HomeBuyer Report but for any Victorian conversions, a Building Survey may well be required.
