Properties on the far West side of Biggleswade are subject to flood alerts from time to time. This includes streets such as Ivel Gardens and Osprey Road as River Ivel runs parallel to these roads.

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).
Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in Biggleswade mainly centre around London road (A6001) running through it and the A1 round the outskirts impacting Windemere Drive and Holme Court Avenue.

The railway line also causes noise pollution for Roads such as Eldon Way and Sycamore Close.
Some properties in Biggleswade are located nearby to existing or proposed sites for wind turbines.

A recent environmental search carried out for a property on Shortmead Street, for example, flagged up that the property was built within 4km of existing or proposed wind turbines
The location of wind farms or turbines can be contentious due to visual impact.

Bedfordshire.pngBedfordshire 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 involves an examination of the structure of the inside and the outside of a property.

Choosing the right survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, to get is important however both a HomeBuyers Report and a Building Survey will identify any suspicions of the main defects discussed below.

Can you attend the Survey with the surveyor?

Most surveyors do not allow the client on site whilst carrying out their inspection. They have a long list of defects that they need to check for and they cannot be distracted from the job in hand as they can be held to account for any missed defects.

The surveyors' professional indemnity insurance does not cover for bringing any third party on site with them while they are completing their inspection, therefore, in the event of any damage being sited by a vendor while the survey is taking place, the surveyor would be liable and uninsured.

On the day of the survey if you have any concerns you can make the surveyor aware of this so they can pay special attention to these areas during their inspection.
