Top tips for a Oswestry Home Buyers Survey


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.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A Home Buyers Survey involves an examination of the structure of the inside and the outside of a property aimed at pinpointing issues such as subsidence, damp, cracks, infestation and damage. The survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, 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.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

Mortgage lenders in England and Wales require you to a valuation for the property you are buying so that they can gauge whether the amount you are paying is appropriate. This survey is called a Mortgage Valuation. The mortgage valuation is paid for by you however the results aren't always shared with you as the survey belongs to the mortgage lender. On top of which it doesn't include any survey into potential defects or structural issues that are too often found in properties.

There is also a degree of confusion because the mortgage valuation is referred to as a survey and so many buyers assume this is what is meant by 'have you done your survey?' It is important that when buying a property in Oswestry that you arrange your own Homebuyers Survey that reports on defects or potential issues with the property; either a HomeBuyers Report or a Building Survey. Buying without a survey could leave you at the mercy of undetected defects such as rising damp which can cost thousands to repair and would affect your future sale price if not repaired.
