Top tips for a Basildon Home Buyers Survey


Basildon is a large, new town created in 1948, its architecture is therefore nearly all modern. It has many tall structures – one of its first tall building was the Brooke House block of flats (built 1962, brutalist style, 14 storeys) in the town centre.

Of the few surviving buildings from earlier periods, St Nicholas Church of Laindon was built in the 13th century and Cromwell Manor near Pitsea railway station dates back to the 15th century.

Many redevelopments and plans to do so are afoot, with the estates of Craylands, Five Links and Felmores due to be refurbished and a proposal for creating a Dunton Garden Suburb, which may bring with it up to 6.000 new homes.

There are plenty of new build developments already in place, with large houses now built in streets like School Avenue, Dry Street and Ballards Walk. Some developments are shared ownership, such as Saffron Court in Saffron Drive.

In March 2019, Homes England announced that it would release £30 million to Basildon in housing funds to help fund 210 new homes in Laindon Place and more than 550 new homes in Beechwood Village (110 classed as affordable).

Under the terms of Section 20 of the Clean Air Act 1993, smoke emissions from all buildings are prohibited unless an exemption has been made by the Secretary of State under Section 21 of the Act.
Road noise pollution in Basildon is at its highest normally along the A127/Southend Arterial Road, affecting nearby streets such as Hovefields Drive and Harrow Road and particularly where the A127 intersects with the A130.

There are raised levels of railway noise pollution along the route of the line connecting Pitsea and Basildon Stations, affecting nearby streets such as Rayside and Ashdon Way.

Essex.pngEssex is not only a coastal county (the North Sea is to its east) but a home county because it touches Greater London on its eastern borders. Its settlements vary from Colchester, which is very historical and used to be the capital of England as Camulodunum, to Southend, a seaside resort, to Basildon, which is a comparatively modern urban development. The western side of Essex hosts many London workers and there are fast rail links to, for example, Shenfield from London Liverpool Street which aid many city workers.

Essex's county town is Chelmsford (and is the county's only city), where Essex County Cricket Club are based. Essex hosts Stansted Airport and attractions such as the Lakeside Shopping Centre, near Thurrock and Epping Forest, a popular forest for camping and other activities. A large proportion of Essex's boundaries are water (the River Thames and the North Sea), the remainder includes Greater London, Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Suffolk. Kent is across the River Thames to the south.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

People have been known to confuse a mortgage valuation with a HomeBuyers Survey. This confusion can prove costly and end up in a home buyer having to fork out for expensive repair costs which should have been shared with the vendor with this reflected in a reduction in the original sale price. Your lender conducts its own mortgage valuation to calculate the value of the property you are looking at buying in Basildon and this is in no sense a report on structural defects.


A HomeBuyers Survey notes defects as well as including a full valuation of a property independently of the mortgage lender or anyone else. The information in it can be used to get quotes for the cost of fixing any issues and presents evidence for bargaining with the seller about sharing repair costs, if appropriate.
