Home Buyer Survey - What does it cover?

Our RICS Surveyor, during a Home Buyers Survey in Oswestry, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, inspects both the inside and the outside of your property and searches in particular for subsidence, damp, infestations and any cracks or other damage to the property. The procedure is non-intrusive.

NB If you're a first time buyer, you might wish to click on What is a House Survey to find out more, including what happens during the inspection.

The Home Buyer Survey will report on issues found, however you need to make sure that you choose the right Home Buyer Survey for your property because some defects require further detail and this is best served by booking a Building Survey.

Home Buyer Survey tips for buying in Oswestry


Architecture in Oswestry is highly varied with examples from many eras and styles. Oswestry Castle, for example, which is mainly just remains, dates back to the 12th century whereas Llwyd Mansion, which is timber framed and has casement windows in the top floor, was built in the mid-to-late 15th century.

11 and 13 Albion Hill, which was a house and later became 2 shops, is timber framed and refronted in rendered brick with a modillion eaves cornice and a slate roof; it was built in the 17th century.

12 and 14 Lower Brook Street, a pair of brick houses with a slate roof with sash windows and 2 gabled dormers, was built in the mid-Georgian period (1741).

There are any number of Victorian-era buildings, such as the Kingswell Community Centre and the Willow Tree Inn.

There are numerous standard construction properties from the 20th century (terraced, semi-detached and detached) and some large modern houses, examples of which can be found in Bentley Drive.

Shropshire.pngShropshire is a county in England in the West Midlands region. Its county town is Shrewsbury, close to the county’s centre. Other major towns in the county include Telford, Wellington, Dawley, Madeley, Oswestry, Bridgnorth and Ludlow. It has many market towns and remains one of England’s most rural and sparsely populated counties.

Telford is Shropshire’s most populated town with around 138,000 people, which accounts for almost 1/3 of the county’s populace. Adjacent counties include Powys, Wrexham, Cheshire, Staffordshire, Worcestershire and Herefordshire. The Harper Adams University is Shropshire's one university; it offers agricultural courses. Also, the Universities of Chester and Wolverhampton have campuses in the county.

Major roads in the county include the M54 and the A5. Other trunk roads include the A53, A49 and A41. Telford, Shropshire and Wellington offer direct trains to London. The nearest international airports are in Birmingham and Manchester.

The Ironbridge Gorge area is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the county and has many particularly interesting exhibits linked to England’s Industrial Revolution period.

The Shropshire Hills is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and covers about a quarter of the county, mainly in the south.

You can also attend the yearly Sheep Grand National steeplechase at Hoo Farm or alternatively marvel at Ditherington Flax Mill, just outside of Shrewsbury, which, it is claimed is the world’s first skyscraper, built in 1797.

How do I arrange access?

On instruction, we take a few key details from you, one of which being the details of the estate agent managing the property. We then organise access with the estate agent and determine whether they hold keys to the property or if the property is accessed via the owner (vendor). We then let the estate agent know the surveyor's intended arrival time and finalise the survey date.

In the event that the property is accessed through the vendor, gaining access can be tricky. Often the vendor will have to find time away from work/private life in order to accommodate the survey which can lead to having to revise the date of survey. Often in worst case scenarios (i.e. the vendor being on holiday), the vendor can leave their keys with the estate agents or a neighbour who are then the port of call to arrange access.
