Top tips for a Shrewsbury Home Buyers Survey


Shrewsbury is a market town and the county town of Shropshire. It has a medieval street plan and several properties in the town centre have timber framing from the 15th and 16th centuries. Shrewsbury Castle, a red sandstone fortification, and Shrewsbury Abbey, a former Benedictine monastery, were founded in 1074 and 1083 respectively.

There are many properties from many eras in the town, from the medieval to the 20th century; many of its ancient buildings remain intact and there was little redevelopment in the 1960s and 1970s. Muncipal housing has been built on the fringes of the town centre, along with private building, primarily between the 1920s and 1950s of predominantly semi-detached and terrace housing.

You can find many terrace properties in Monkmoor, Sundorne, Battlefield and Heathgates and larger detached properties in the Copthorne area, some period conversions and some modern rebuilds.

New build developments include the detached homes of Mytton Oak Road and Sutton Grange, the terraced houses in Ellesmere Road amd the semi-detached houses in Bicton Heath, where Help to Buy is sometimes available.

Survey Tip 3

Properties in Shrewsbury which are built in close proximity to the River Severn, in streets such as Longner Street and Abbey Foregate, are in an area where flood warnings and alerts are issued from time to time.

If you are concerned that a property you are looking to buy is in a flood risk area, you should consider getting a flood risk report (click for more details).
According to the UK Government's Public Health England, Shrewsbury, including streets such as Wyle Cop and Beeches Lane, is in a raised radon area, with properties built there having a higher probability than average of experiencing ground Radon emissions.

The raised Radon area has a maximum radon potential of 1-3% (the percentage is the chance of a property being built where Radon emissions might measure above the action level).

If you are concerned that a property you are buying is in an area of raised Radon, please click to visit Public Health England's UK Radon Map. Click also to find out more about Radon, Radon property searches and much more.
Your RICS surveyor inspects drains during a survey of a property in Shrewsbury, where the drain cover is accessible and on the site of the property.

If the drains are reported to be blocked you may need to employ a drainage company to inspect the drains with CCTV such as Shropshire Drains.

ShropshireShropshire 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.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A Home Buyers Survey is a visual inspection of the grounds and the internal/external structure of the property and identifies defects such as cracks or damage to the structure of the property, subsidence, damp and infestations.

Some of these defects you may not even see or know what to look for which makes getting a Home Buyers Survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, if you are considering buying a property in Shrewsbury, incredibly important.

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.

Should any issues be flagged up in the Home Buyers Survey, our surveyor will tell you what you need to do to get more in-depth advice on the extent and seriousness of the issue and what needs to be done to remedy it. 

If you are worried about a crack or cracks or indeed any other defects that you think your property in Shrewsbury has, we strongly recommend you get a Home Buyers Survey as the cost of remedying the problem might snowball into many thousands of pounds further down the line. As an example of the costs, underpinning a property due to subsidence can be upwards of £10,000.

Do you need a RICS Building Survey for a new flat?

The RICS HomeBuyers Report is specifically designed to be an ideal home buyers survey for flats and bungalows and smaller, more modern properties in general.

Your RICS surveyor checks all areas that are accessible within the property for the report, notes any suspicions of property defects such as subsidence and damp and will give a general review of the construction and condition of the property.

The report also gives you a market valuation and reinstatement cost.

A RICS Building Survey is more suited to older properties, larger properties and/or those which have been extended and those made of non-standard construction materials.
