Top tips for a Telford Home Buyers Survey


Telford new town's first new houses came into being in 1967 and most of the dwellings which accompanied the expansion of the new town were built in the three decades up to the early 1990s. The new development spans all styles of housing from apartments to bungalows to terraced, semi-detached and large detached homes.

There are the odd survivals from before the Victorian period, however these are few and far between, for example the 4-bedroom Georgian detached house off Offoxey Road. Blists Hill Victorian Town in Legges Way, Ironbridge, makes use of a number of Victorian survivals as part of a museum to bring back the feel of a Victorian industrial town.

In the main, where there are properties which pre-date the 1900s, these have been carefully preserved or developed for historical and museum/recreation purposes.

If you're considering buying a property in Telford's locale in London, getting an Environmental Search Report, one of the main property conveyancing searches, is an important way to find out if there are environmental issues which might affect your enjoyment of the dwelling.

A recent such report, bought for a property in Ever Ready Crescent, Dawley, Telford TF4 3GL, revealed that the property was in a smoke control area and listed a number of planning permissions which had been granted, which included, for example, a factory extension and a first floor office extension close by to the property.
An Environmental Conveyancing Property Search can reveal nearby hazards which might affect a property. A recent such search for a property in Buxus Road, Hadley, Telford TF1 5TN revealed the property was sited within 25 metres of a coal mining affected area, which can exacerbate issues such as subsidence, among other things.
A Building Survey can do much to put your mind at rest regarding suspicions of major property defects afflicting a dwelling you're thinking of buying. A recent such Building Survey, bought for a property in Caldera Road, Hadley, Telford TF1 5LT revealed a number of matters worth further consideration. These included the surveyor's recommendation that the prospective purchaser should buy an additional Mining Report property conveyancing search due to the surveyor's prior knowledge of extensive mining in the area. The surveyor also recommended that an NICEIC-registered electrical contractor might usefully inspect the wiring, which was original to the build and, most pertinently, the surveyor expressed their opinion that the property was excessively priced and that there might be room for manoeuvre in further negotiations with the vendor for a reduction in price.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A RICS 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, incredibly important when you are considering buying a home in Telford.

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 Telford 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.

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.
