Top tips for a Billericay Home Buyers Survey


Billericay has links back to the Bronze age and is located in the London Basin in Essex. Near the High Street, there is a change in soil type from sandy to clay a consequence of this is the local underground springs.

It has properties from many eras. The Burghstead Lodge in the High Street is a fine example of a building from the Georgian period. The railway arrived in 1889 and was an impetus to further development of the town.

Much of Billericay's current property was built from the early 20th century and onwards. You are more likely to find semi-detached housing and flats nearer the town centre, in the outlying areas and smaller villages, such as Burstead and Ramsden Bellhouse, there are a fair few larger detached properties, some of them original or period restorations; others are very modern and built on the site of the previous property which was knocked down.

There are a fair amount of new build developments such as Garland Court (Sun Street) and the houses you can see in Grange Road.

Properties in Billericay built in close proximity to the River Wid, in streets such as Rosebay Avenue and The Warren, are in areas which are sometimes subject to flood 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).
A recent Environmental Search for a property in Kennel Lane, Billericay, CM11 2ST, noted that there was a potential risk of surface water flooding within 250m of the property.

Surface water flooding results from rainfall running over ground before entering a watercourse or sewer.
A recent Environmental Search for a property in Margeth Road, Billericay, CM12 9UT noted that there was a moderate potential for natural ground instability in the area within 50m of the property.

This finding did not necessarily mean that there was a cause for concern in terms of the property's stability: active subsidence depends on local conditions such as the proximity of trees. A house buyers survey is advised to look for signs of property damage that may indicate poor natural ground conditions.

EssexEssex 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. If you're buying a property in Billericay with a mortgage, your lender conducts its own mortgage valuation to calculate the value of the property 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.
