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 .

Conservation area

Are there any things I would need to look into if buying a property in Wem inside a conservation area ?

There are over 9, 000 of conservation areas in the UK that are designated and monitored by local authorities. Surveyors in Wem must have sufficient knowledge of relevant local area factors and any connection they have with the home and its value. Values is, more often than not, higher owing to the areas being in their original state.

Surveyors are expected note if the home is possibly is so classified and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Homebuyer Report will suggest suitable questions are raised by the conveyancing solicitor. Unauthorised adjustments to the building will also be advised in your survey, however these should be investigated by your legal representative.

Damage resulting from flooding

We think this property is located near a stream. Is there a major flood risk? Would our chartered surveyor investigate flooding?

The lives of many homeowners in Wem and across the UK have been affected by flooding damage. If you are planning to buy in a flood-affected area, a Home Buyers Survey will inform your decision. It is strongly recommended that the property is protected, before flood damage occurs.

Flood water can enter a house in Wem through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls.

Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. the use of lime-based plaster on walls. The surveyor may ask the vendor or agent if the house in Wem has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.

The Environment Agency have updated the status for the Riverside locations and roads between Sticklepath and Taw Bridge, including Taw Green, Newland Cross, Bondleigh, Taw Bridge, vulnerable parts of North Tawton and the A3072 at Newland Mill, near Wem, to 'No warnings' at 06:24 on 06 Dec 2008.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

I have been told that subsidence in Wem is worth checking. What can be done to resolve subsidence if subsidence is found during the house survey?

Subsidence is defined as movement of the foundations of a structure, but some degree of movement will always occur. Newer homes, for example, will need to settle under the weight of the building. Often, homes in Wem are built with a variety of materials, each with a different shrinkage rate.

Soil on sloping ground is not as stable as that sitting flat and can sometimes become unstable and begin to slide downward. Inside the property, keep an eye out for doors and windows that are more difficult to open.

Restoration work cannot begin until the original source of the movement is found. The removal of trees may make the problem worse, however, so professional advice should be sought. Existing trees must be well managed, and new trees should be planted at a safe distance from the exterior walls of the property. Beech and sycamore trees, for example, should be planted at least 15m from a property. Damaged but non-structural elements should be filled and re-weatherproofed. Chartered surveyors should be able to identify a subsidence problem, while structural engineers may also be required.
