Top tips for a Bath Home Buyers Survey


Bath has some of the finest architecture in England, from the Roman Baths, to Pulteney Bridge (based on an unused design for the Rialto Bridge) to Bath Abbey, founded in 1499 on the site of an 8th century church.

Georgian architecture, which is the predominant type in Bath (particularly Palladian revival style) can be seen in the Royal Cresent (1770) and The Circus (1760) and many of the city's buildings are constructed of golden coloured Bath Stone.

Bath was bombed during the 2nd world war leading to much development post-war: the villages of Combe Down, Tiverton and Weston were built in the 1950s and much of the construction was by the council, such as the Whiteway estate.

There are plenty of 1930s and later semi-detached houses, such as you find in, for example, Stirtingale Avenue and Penn Lea Road. 

There are a number of new developments in and around the city, including, for example, Bath Riverside in Victorian Bridge Road along the banks of the Avon – a modern, purpose built medium-rise block offering studios and larger sized flats up to 4 bedrooms.

Survey Tip 1

Survey Tip 3

Properties in Bath built very close to the River Avon, such as in St John's Road and Cork Street, are subject to flood warnings and alerts 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, some parts of Bath, including streets such as Lower Oldfield Park and Hayesfield Park, are 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 greater than 30% (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.
Properties in some areas of Bath may be affected by environmental constraints.

A recent environmental search carried out for a property in Stirtingale Avenue, Bath BA2 2NQ revealed that the property was within 250m of an area likely to be impacted by environmental constraints. These included the designated World Heritage Site of the City of Bath.

Areas which have been designated as having environmental or historical importance may impose constraints on property or land developments or alterations.

LondonMiddlesex is a county located in south east of England, however many parts of Middlesex are now commonly known as part of Greater London, with small sections in neighbouring counties.

Strictly speaking Middlesex as a concept is only kept in existence by many people continuing to name it as a county on postal addresses and other contributors such as Middlesex County Cricket Club, whose home ground is at Lord's in St John's Wood, just outside Central London. It is still loved despite it not having any form of administrative function etc.

People hearing about Middlesex assume it was/is a large county because of the amount of Greater London territory (West and North London and Westminster, with the Thames as its southern boundary) which lies within its borders. It is actually the second smallest county in the UK. Middlesex was established in the Anglo-Saxon system from the territory of the Middle Saxons. The largely low-lying county's soil is dominated by clay in its north and alluvium on gravel in its south.

Middlesex contains locations as diverse as Teddington (where the tidal Thames normally finishes), Enfield, Notting Hill, Ickenham, Ealing (where the famous film studios which produced so much early film comedy still exists), Hampstead and Southall.

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 is non-intrusive.

If you are thinking of buying a property in Bath, it is highly advisable to book one, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report,.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

Any number of people have been understandably confused between a mortgage valuation and a HomeBuyers Survey.

Your lender conducts its own valuation on the property in Bath you intend to buy to check that it is lending you the right sum of money in relation to the property's value. It is not intended to examine any defects the property may have.

When you book a HomeBuyers Survey from us, as well as receiving an independent valuation of the property you wish to buy, the primary focus is to establish whether the property has any defects which you should know about, for example rising damp or subsidence, which might, particularly as time passes, end up requiring even tens of thousands of pounds to put right.

This knowledge is naturally of great use to you, given how much you are intending to spend. You might, on the strength of the information, provided, negotiate with the seller to contribute towards the costs of repairing the defects or even pull out buying the property entirely.


Most importantly, any HomeBuyers Survey is squarely for your benefit and is independent of both your lender - if you are buying with a mortgage - and your vendor. Call 0333 344 3234 to get yours and to help your peace of mind.
