HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Ruabon and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Ruabon property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, but it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Ruabon property's state of repair as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

For more details you can get a Ruabon House Survey Quote on our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing in Ruabon. What will we need to bear in mind when purchasing a building constructed in 1750? What should be budgeted for maintenance?

Some buyers in Ruabon have considered buying a unique or characterful property. The age of a structure, however, can often be problematic, and Houses built with traditional methods can be difficult to maintain. You should consider that specialist knowledge may be needed. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of Grade I listed property. This may mean expensive ongoing repairs.

Landfill site near home

What should we be fearful of when buying a flat proximate to a rubbish dump

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste for example: commercial waste disposal. No one really wants to live near one (most people do live near one). Worries might include heavy metals .

Ruabon surveyors will notice structural problems resulting from the landfill. Your conveyancer will carry out environmental searches of the Environmental Agency database in addition to Wrexham Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .

Shocking Electrics

When we visited the unmodernised property we want to move into we saw that there was no RCD on the fuse board ; does Ruabon survey report on the wiring and electrical system?

During a Ruabon Home Survey the home surveyor will usually comment on the electrical system if it is apparent that they are in an unsafe condition. A Home surveyor should also potential areas for concern such as confirming the state of repair of any fitted appliances, e.g. storage radiators or checking the condition of any visible wiring a representative sample of switch gear. Ascertaining the whereabouts of any documents from the most recent PIR carried out by a suitably qualified electrician will form part of the survey in Ruabon.

The Institute of Electrical Engineers advise that a Periodic Inspection Report should be carried out at least every 10 years (5 if renting out).
