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.

A RICS 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 and is highly recommended if you are looking at buying a property in Telford.

If you are concerned about your property has subsidence, or any other defects then you MUST get a HomeBuyers Survey as the costs for repairing the defects can run into thousands of pounds. If you can identify the defect before you purchase then you can get quotes for fixing it and either share the costs with the seller, or, in worst case examples, choose not to proceed.

What is the difference between the Building Survey and the HomeBuyers Report?

There are two types of survey, the HomeBuyer Report and the Building Survey. The Building survey is essential for larger or older properties that have had any structural alterations from their original build whereas the HomeBuyers Report is suitable for properties of standard construction and properties that are under 70 years old.

Both Surveys cover the same aspects they are just go into different depths within their report. The Building Survey is the highest visual assessment you can get and goes into a through structural investigation into the construction and fabric of the property, this is a very detailed report and comes with explanations and photos (if the surveyor provides photos in their reports - some don't) and the HomeBuyers report gives a good general review of the property to help identify any defect however this is formatted in a traffic light format, red highlighting any major issues, amber less so and green everything is fine.
