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 .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We want to put in an offer on a place in Wrexham. Is there any English Garden Wall bond maintenance tips we should be aware of??

Wrexham brick-walled structures can indicate both minor and serious issues. This could be anything from thermal movement to efflorescence. A defect requiring immediate attention is diagonal cracks which widen as they move upwards. These may result from ground movement, or where a timber element of the wall has rotted away. Howe R M at 3 North Cottage/Stockgrove Park, Stockgrove, Leighton Buzzard, LU7 0BB should give an estimate for any work. Call them on 01525 237508.

Brick-build property are used in properties built throughout the ages, leading to a selection of different courses and brick making techniques. The advice of a brickwork specialist should be sought before attempting repairs.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact can wet weather have on a property in Wrexham?

As a frequent surveyor of local property, I find it strange that the impact rainfall can have on a structure is not considered. If you have only seen the property you intend to purchase on a dry day, defects may not have been obvious. Signs that drainage systems are blocked include spalling on walls around drainage.

The good news is that this is usually easy to resolve for a reasonable cost.However, the damage caused, where poorly maintained, will be expense to remedy and resulting damp and mould could become a health risk.

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.
