Need a Home Survey ? Which one should you opt for?

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Shrewsbury and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is effectively the same.

If the Shrewsbury property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any alterations, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Shrewsbury property's condition and it includes information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we viewed the unmodernised property we are intending to lease it appeared that there is an unsafe electrical system; will the surveyor go into detail on electrical system condition?

When performing a Shrewsbury Home Buyers Survey the RICS surveyor should usually mention the electrics if it is apparent that they are in a less than satisfactory condition. This should include a general view of the superficial parts of the wiring on top of areas e.g. ascertaining any external installations e.g. outbuildings or any water features. A check for the evidence of the most recent PIR handled by an electrician should usually form part of the survey.

Confirming the existence of any documents from the most recent PIR conducted by an electrician will usually form part of the survey in Shrewsbury .

Roof defects identified during a survey

Damp in the attic caused problems in the past, and we are wary of potential roofing issues. What advice would the RICS surveyor give in their report?

Houses in Shrewsbury in good condition can often hide roofing problems. From ceiling joists to clay tiles, all aspects of the roof will be considered. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in Shrewsbury, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the property surveyors will look for a range of signs, including being literally flat, as opposed to on a small incline so that water can drain correctly.

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 quote for the work could be sought from a reliable roofing specialist.

Building Surveys on maisonettes

Should I order a full structural survey prior to acquiring an abandoned, eighties garden maisonette in Shrewsbury?

Structural surveys are now known as Building Surveys. A HomeBuyer Report is appropriate for a mid century or later unmodified maisonette built out of standard building materials. You would be best advised to plump for a RICS Building Survey in relation to the property you are contemplating.

Bear in mind that some caveats exist with any residential survey - your local Shrewsbury surveyor will not be able to open up the fabric of the building or comment on efficiency of gas installations.
