Home Buyer Survey tips for buying in Billesdon


Billesdon is a comparatively small village which only really expanded in any way from the Victorian period. It has buildings from many periods in its vicinity however, including a building originally built in 1846 as a new workhouse, but which has served duty as for example a military hospital in its time, with an entrance from Coplow Loane. The National School and master's house were built in 1875.

Its parish church in many ways sums up this state of affairs: it was originally built in 1162 and the base of its tower and north wall were built probably both built before 1250 although the upper stages of the tower and spaire were from the later 13th century. The chancel was rebuilt in the 15th century. The south aisle was built in 1864 and various restorations have been made since then.

You can find relatively modern properties also in the area of relatively standard construction and some new build developments.

A local authority search – the chief property conveyancing search – can be a goldmine for revealing local planning charges granted which might affect the enjoyment of a property; such a search bought for a property in Shepherds Reach, Scraptoft LE7 9XQ, revealed among other matters that there was an adjacent public right of way not maintained at public expense, approval for the siting and building of 178 properties with associated infrastructure and advertising and matters related to water and drainage.

A recent Environmental Search for a property in Hawcliffe Road, Mountsorrel, Loughborough LE12 7AH revealed that there were a number of entries related to potentially contaminated land including a landfill or waste site identified within 500m of the property and other potentially contaminative activities identified within 500m of the property. Additionally a known contamination incident had been identified with 500m of the property and there were other potential sources of contamination identified within 250m of the property. The search report specifies as much as possible more information about these matters and gives information which can be vital for further research. It shows the use of buying this kind of survey when considering buying a property.

Parish church claims on parishioners for chancel repair, where these occur, can be fairly costly, with individual households possibly being legally required to pay £1,000s.

Buying a chancel repair indemnity insurance policy for a property you're looking to buy is an easy and efficient way of protecting yourself against this possible eventuality and among many others, one such policy was taken out for a property in Shepherds Reach, Scraptoft LE7 9XQ. This policy generally costs around £20 to buy and normally covers the policy holder for claims to the limit of £1 million.
Leicestershire Leicestershireis in the East Midlands and Leicester is its traditional administrative centre, even though the City of Leicester itself is a unitary authority and administered separately. The county is bordered by Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire, Rutland, Northamptonshire, Warwickshire, Staffordshire and Derbyshire.

Leicestershire has 2 motorways running through it - the M1 and the M69. The county has 3 universities; the University of Leicester, Loughborough University and De Montfort University.

The county hosts the East Midlands Airport a hub airport for domestic, EU and international flights, which is located at Castle Donington. Castle Donington is also the location of Donington Park, which has many uses, ranging from motor racing to hosting large music concerts and festivals.

Other than Leicester, other large towns in the county include Loughborough, Ashby-de-la-Zouch, Coalville, Hinckley, Market Harborough and Melton Mowbray.

Food associated with the county includes Red Leicester, Long Clawson and Stilton cheeses and pork pies, particularly Melton Mowbray Pork Pies.

For random facts, the original Hansom Cab - i.e. with a mechanical meter - was invented in Hinckley in the county (by Joseph Hansom) in 1834 and Thomas Cook organised the world's first package tour from Leicester in 1841.

Worth a paragraph on its own, the phrase 'painting the town red' originates from revelry which accompanied some loutish aristocratic hunters celebrating a good day's hunting in 1837 in Melton Mowbray: they daubed red paint on houses, pub signs and a toll-bar and apparently, some of the paint still remains on some of the older houses in the High Street.

How long does the survey take?

The time necessary to carry out a survey is relative to each property. Naturally a 6 bed, old Victorian property will take longer to survey than a newly built 1 bed flat as there’s more ground to cover and more defects to look out for. A conservative estimate of around 2 hours can be used as a rough guideline, however the surveyor will spend as much time in the property as necessary in order to make sure all present defects are commented on.

The building surveyor must spend an appropriate amount of time at the property so that they can provide the complete scope of work set out by the RICS for the HomeBuyer Report and the Building Survey.

You can read the scope of work in a HomeBuyer Report here.
