HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Wem and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Wem property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any major works on the property, you should you select a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Wem property's general condition as well as information on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

I have put in an offer on a Wem building with a loft conversion, and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. Which issues relating to the building's roof will be investigated when the survey is carried out?

Questions like this are often asked of surveyors by Wem home buyers who are aware that property can often hide issues with the roof. From the fascias to the ceiling joists, the status of the whole roof should be reviewed. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like a poor asphalt covering.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Wem, but it is a health and safety necessity. A Wem roofing contractor can provide an estimate.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what effect may rain have on our new Wem building?

Climate change is regularly in the news. However the impact heavy rain can have on a house is often overlooked by property buyers. If you have only been to the property in on a clear day, defects may not have been obvious. This can lead to hazardous mould.

These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to resolve, if maintenance is taken seriously. If untreated or poorly maintained, however, the damage will impact both the home's value, and the residents' enjoyment of the property.

Shocking Electrics

When I viewed a property I expect to lease I saw that there were damaged electrical sockets - will a Wem survey go into detail on the wiring and fusebox?

When conducting a Wem Homebuyer Report a surveyor should remark on the state of the electrics if it is suspected that the electrics are in a dangerous state. He or she will also provide detail on things like verifying the type of any electrical fittings in shower rooms or verifying the condition of any visible wiring a sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear. Inspecting the documents from the most recent PIR conducted by a suitably qualified electrician will usually be part of the survey.

The IEE suggest that a periodic test should be carried out every ten years (or every 5 if letting).
