Top tips for a Bedfordshire Home Buyers Survey


Bedfordshire in the east of England is partly on a chalk ridge (the Chiltern Hills) and also part of the River Great Ouse's drainage basin. The rocks there are clays, sandstone and some limestone.

Towns in the county include Luton, Biggleswade, Flitwick, Sandy, Dunstable, Shefford, Kempston and Ampthill among others. The larger towns, particularly Luton, have much housing stock, particularly semi-detached houses, built in the 1930s and onwards, with a mix of council-built and private-built.

The county hosts Woburn Abbey and Bedford Castle. Most often, examples of much older properties are found in more rural areas where there has been less or no redevelopment and much less likelihood of events like bombing during the second world war having occurred.

There are many modern developments, particularly in areas such as Biddenham (take, for example, Great Denham Park (detached, semi-detached and terraced housing) and Greenkeepers Mews (some purpose-built low-rise flats).

Dwellings in Bedfordshire which are built in close proximity to water courses such as the River Great Ouse and the River Lee (or Lea) 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 Bedfordshire, including places such as Bromham, Biddenham and Oakley, 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 1 – 3% (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.
The highest levels of noise pollution in the Bedfordshire area generally centre on the M1 as it passes near places such as Eversholt, Ridgmont and Brogborough. Noise pollution from railways in Bedfordshire is most marked along the path of the main north-south line passing through Bedford Station.

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!

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A RICS Home Buyers Survey identifies many different defects or potential risks that can be found within a property and is an essential part of any home buying process.

The survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is completed by a Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) registered surveyor so they are fully trained to provide you with the detail you need to buy your home.

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.

If the HomeBuyers Survey flags up any of these defects in your property in Bedfordshire then our surveyor explains what you need to do to get further advice on how to investigate them and get It resolved.

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.

I’m buying a new build property, what survey do I need?

If you are purchasing a new build property in Bedfordshire you will need to have a snagging survey carried out by a RICS surveyor. This is an independent inspection looking specifically for faults in new build properties such as sealant in showers, cracked tiles and many other areas.

A snagging survey is designed to find out if there are any immediate problems with your new-build home. The surveyor will provide a report to the buyer with a listing of the areas within the new property whereby sub-standard workmanship exists and good practice has not been used and poor finishing’s are evident.

The snagging report can be provided to the developer and you can negotiate to get the works completed prior or after you complete your purchase - who is going to repair the snags should however be agreed prior to completion.
