Top tips for a Bradford Home Buyers Survey


Bradford is a city in West Yorkshire and has a rich history, particularly in connection with textile manufacture in the 19th century during the latter phase of the Industrial Revolution.

Bradford Cathedral has a long history; it has been rebuilt or repaired various times over the period 1400 – 1965 but it has been a site for Christian worship since the 8th century.

During the period 1820 – 1850, waves of various immigrants increased the city's population, particularly in the Broomfields and Manningham areas. Latterly, the wards of Bradford Moor, City, Little Horton, Manningham and Toller have seen much Asian immigration which has been a spur to house building.

The city has some excellent period survivals in terms of its buildings, particularly from the Victorian period, although developers in the 1960s and 1970s destroyed much older housing stock. Much private and municipal housing was built in the 20th century and construction has occurred steadily up to recent times.

New build developments in Bradford include the terraced houses in Baildon (Berry Close, Berry Drive) and the detached houses in Cross Lane, Birkenshaw. Help to Buy has frequently been used by people to buy new builds in the area.

Properties in Bradford built close to water courses such as Bradford Beck, Middle Brook, Clayton Beck, Bull Greave Beck and Pitty Beck among others, are in an area where flood alerts are issued 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, in some areas of Bradford, including streets such as Hall ings and Nelson Street, is 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.
Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the Bradford area mainly centre around the main road – Manchaster Road - A641, and of rail pollution where the railway line crosses Mill Lane.

YorkshireYorkshire is the largest county in the United Kingdom and it is made up of large subdivisions; North Yorshire, South Yorkshire, West Yorkshire and East Riding of Yorkshire; which administer their own parts of it although the whole is still recognised as a cultural region and geographical territory.

When should you book your survey?

A survey from booking to getting your report should normally take around 2 to 3 weeks depending on the time of year (busy periods are July, August and December).

The best advice is to instruct your surveyor at the same time as you instruct your solicitor. The reason being is that your solicitor tells you of any legal reason to not buy the property and the surveyor will look to tell you if their is any visual reason to stop buying or to renegotiate the selling price.
