HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Church Stretton and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Church Stretton property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Church Stretton property's general condition as well as including an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we visited the period property we are hoping to purchase it looked like there could be corrosion of the wiring; does the Church Stretton surveyor advise on the electrical system condition?

When conducting a Church Stretton Building Survey the surveyor will comment on the electrics if it is clear that the electrics are in an unsafe condition. This should include an overview look-over of any revealed areas of the wiring, fusebox etc. in addition to areas e.g. confirming the condition of fitted electrical appliances such as storage heaters. Inspecting any documentation from the most recent PIR handled by a suitably qualified electrician

should usually form part of the Homebuyer report in Church Stretton. Looking at any evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical connections handled by an electrician on the property being surveyed will usually be part of the survey.

Roof defects identified during a survey

The next-door neighbour said that the had been a problem with mould. What aspects of the attic will be checked?

This often causes anxiety for Church Stretton home buyers with a roofing 'horror story' from a previous home. Many residential properties could unfortunately be experiencing roofing problems. From ceiling joists to slates, every part of the roof will be considered. Problems can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by holes or cracks in the waterproof layer.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. A roofing specialist with accreditation can provide a quote.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing an older property in Church Stretton. What effect will the home's thatched roof have on repairs?

Some purchasers would like to own a home with character, such as a Georgian terrace. A property's age, however, can often be problematic. Houses showcasing traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be a chore to maintain. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary. Construction materials, such as stone quarried in the Church Stretton area, may also need to be sourced. This can result in longer-term maintenance obligations. Constructed in the 16th century, All Stretton, Roseleigh in Church Stretton is a good example of a Medieval house.
