Top tips for a Rugby Home Buyers Survey


Rugby's town centre is mostly Victorian and early 20th century, however a few much older buildings survive, along with some more modern developments. Rugby was described by Nikolaus Pevsner as 'Butterfieldtown' due to the number of buildings designed by William Butterfield in the 19th century, including much of Rugby School and the extension of St Andrew's Church.

The main shopping area in Rugby is in the streets around the Clock Tower, two of which – High Street and Sheep Street – were pedestrianised in the 1980s. Until the 19th century, Rugby's urban area consisted of only Market Place, High Street, Sheep Street, Church Street, North Street and what is now Lawrence Sheriff Street. These centred on what is now the Clock Tower, which was built in 1887 on the site of an ancient cross. These streets still form the core of the town centre. In the Victorian and Edwardian eras several more shopping streets were added in order to cater for the growing town, including Albert Street and Regent Street, the latter of which was built in 1905, and was intended to be Rugby's main shopping street, although it never achieved this goal.

The Enquiries of the Local Authority Conveyancing Property Search, which is mandatory if you're buying with a mortgage, provides your property lawyer with invaluable information concerning Building Regulations compliance regarding a property you're looking to buy.

A recent such report for a dwelling in Oxford Street, Rugby CV21 3LZ revealed that valid FENSA and GASAFE certificates had been lodged variously for installation of windows and maintenance of a gas boiler. Your solicitor can reconcile records such as these against other information for the home in question and use it to form the basis of further enquiries for example, to ensure that you have as accurate information as possible before you choose to exchange contracts.
The Environmental Search, one of the conveyancing property searches which you normally must buy if you're purchasing a home using a mortgage, can provide invaluable information about the land the dwelling is built on, which can affect whether you ultimately choose to go ahead with the purchase or not.

A recent such report for a dwelling in Little Pennington Street, Rugby CV21 2AY revealed that the property was located 'on or within 25 metres of a former landfill site'. The report counselled the report buyer to take further investigative steps as this fact could mean that the land has been contaminated with potential risk therefore to individuals in the vicinity. Subsequent investigations should help resolve whether there is indeed a significant danger or not and therefore whether to press on with the purchase or not.
Parish church claims on parishioners for chancel repair, where these occur, can be fairly costly, with individual households possibly being legally required to pay £1,000s.

Buying a chancel repair indemnity insurance policy for a property you're looking to buy is an easy and efficient way of protecting yourself against this possible eventuality and among many others, one such policy was taken out for a property in Moat Farm Drive, Hillmorton, Rugby CV21 4HQ. This policy generally costs around £20 to buy and normally covers the policy holder for claims to the limit of £1 million.

What equipment does a surveyor use?

RICS Surveyors are equipped with a core set of devices and tools to assist in their inspections of properties that are geared towards uncovering defects which may affect the property’s value or the buyers decision.

The equipment can be split into categories such as; equipment for recording information, measuring equipment, equipment for assessing remote and concealed areas and Health and Safety equipment.

Additional tools can include large screwdrivers, hammers, small crowbars, bolsters, mirrors on extendable poles, borescopes (or boroscopes - tools which allow remote visual inspection of entities such as drains and pipes) and metal detectors to help provide in-depth reports to clients prior to them exchanging contracts.
