HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Wrexham and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is effectively the same.

If the Wrexham property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any works or an extension, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it will give you a thorough analysis of the Wrexham property's state of repair along with an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Gas flame

Will a chartered surveyor look at the condition of the gas flues?

The local surveyor will locate and visually examine any easily accessible parts of the gas system. This will include the routing of any gas pipes at the building, as well as gas connected fixtures like fixed external ventilation hearths. However, the Wrexham qualified surveyor will not remove external fittings and won't run any tests of any kind on the functionality of the gas system. Most people are aware that gas is potentially hazardous and if there are any concerns relating to gas installations, call a gas safe engineer.

Wrexham based gas engineers include Michael Jones of 54 Dee Park, Holt, Wrexham Tel. 07813092830 and Vulcana Training Ltd of Marchwiel Day Centre, Bryn Lane, Wrexham Industrial Estate, Wrexham, Clwyd Tel. 01978660300.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Mould caused problems in a house we used to own. What advice would the home surveyor give in their report?

Wrexham property in good condition can be blighted by roofing problems. From rafters to parapet walls, all aspects of the roof should be reported on. Difficulties can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by literally being flat. An incline of at least '1 to 80' is recommended.

Upkeep need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A building survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will be facing. A Wrexham roofing contractor can provide an estimate. Call Peters D B of 11 Sussex Gardens, Wrexham, LL11 2YB on 01978 357024 for a quote.

Chimney stacks

In a Wrexham HomeBuyer Report, what will 'E1 - Chimney stacks' refer to?

The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly. As buyers in Wrexham are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. The surveyor uses a scale between 1 and 3 to show the severity of defects uncovered during the survey.

Section E elements are visually inspected from the ground if the roof is hard to access. No drip edge on the chimney cap is an example of this.
