Some parts of Ampthill might be affected by existing or proposed wind farms or wind turbines. A recent Environmental Search Report taken out for a property in Sollars Way, MK45 3GA noted that it was built within 4km of existing or proposed wind farms or wind turbines. The location of wind farms can have an impact on the surrounding area due to the size of the turbines and the inconvenience of where the turbines are placed.

BedfordshireBedfordshire is often abbreviated to Beds and is a county located to the East of England. It is a ceremonial county and a historic county, covered by three unitary authorities: Bedford, Central Bedfordshire, and Luton. Bedfordshire is bordered by Cambridgeshire to the northeast, Northamptonshire to the north, Buckinghamshire to the west and Hertfordshire to the southeast.

Bedford itself is halfway between Oxford and Cambridge and a railway line nicknamed the Varsity or Brain Line used to connect the two universities. Bedfordshire contains the Chiltern Hills, an area of outstanding natural beauty, as well as Woburn Abbey and Safari Park. John Bunyan, author of the Pigrim's Progress, was from the county (born Elstow, just south of Bedford) and actually spent 12 years in Bedford Gaol for his nonconformist views regarding the restoration of the monarchy!

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

It is a common misconception that a mortgage valuation is a HomeBuyers Survey and this can leave HomeBuyers exposed to high repair costs that could have been negotiated with the seller. A mortgage valuation is conducted by the lender’s surveyor to assess the value of the property you are considering buying in Ampthill and they do not provide a detailed report on structural defects. 

A HomeBuyers Survey details defects and includes a full appraisal of the property independently to anyone else including the mortgage lender. You can use the information to obtain quotes to fix any defects and gives you the evidence to potentially share the costs with the seller.


Most savvy buyers make sure they get a HomeBuyers survey from an independent surveyor to make sure the property they are buying is free from defects. Call us on 0333 344 3234 to get the best HomeBuyers survey for your property in Ampthill.
