Top tips for a Brentwood Home Buyers Survey


Brentwood has two historic institutions, the Catholic Cathedral, originally built in 1861 (developed into a cathedral from its original Victorian Gothic structure) and Brentwood School, founded in 1557 – both are on Inrgrave Road.

Additionally the ruins of a 12th century church can still be seen on the High Street and the Sugar Hut nightclub (as seen on TV), is the site of the medieval White Hart inn.

There are plenty of new homes in and around Brentwood as well as housing stock from all periods of the 20th century. Warley has semi-detached houses from the 1920s as well as more rural roads with bungalows. Shenfield has modern semi-detached homes and Hutton Mount has many modern detached houses.

Trueloves Grange in Trueloves Lane is a gated development offering new and very large detached homes and The Galleries has flats which were recently built in a conversion of the former Warley Hospital.

Survey Tip 1

Survey Tip 2

Survey Tip 3

Properties in Brentwood built in close proximity to the tributaries and channels of the River Wid, in streets such Middle Road in the Ingrave locale, 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 Henman Way, Brentwood, CM14 4EZ 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.
A recent Regulated Local Authority Search for a property in Nine Ashes Road, Stondon Massey, Brentwood, CM15 0EL, noted that the property was in an area that will be affected by the High Speed 2 (HS2) route.

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.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A Home Buyers Survey is completed by a qualified RICS surveyor and delivers a visual inspection of the property in Brentwood and the surrounding garden. The aim of the survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is to identify potential risks or defects that you may not know are there such as cracks or damage to the structure of the property, subsidence, damp and infestations.

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 Home Buyers Survey shows up any such problems, our appointed surveyor will explain to you what you should do to get more in-depth information about the type and scope of the matter and what is required to fix it.

If you are worried about any defects that you think your property in Brentwood has, we strongly recommend you get a Home Buyers Survey as the cost of remedying the problem might grow to many thousands of pounds as time progresses.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

When you buy a home with a mortgage your Mortgage Lender requires you to get a mortgage valuation to assess how much your property is actually worth. You have to pay for this survey and often you may think this is also a structural assessment to identify defects. Sadly the mortgage valuation is just for the mortgage lender which means you need to get your own independent survey of the property that's caught your eye in Brentwood to make sure there aren't any defects.

There is some confusion as the mortgage valuation is often referred to as a survey and so many buyers assume this is what is meant by 'have you done your survey?' It is important that when buying a property in Brentwood that you arrange your own HomeBuyers Survey that reports on defects or potential issues with the property. The two types of HomeBuyers survey to choose from are the HomeBuyers Report or the Building Survey. Buying without a survey could leave you exposed to any repair costs or defects that you didn't spot. The costs of underpinning a property due to subsidence run into the £10,000s so it is important to get a survey to check for this type of defect. Get your HomeBuyers Survey - call 0333 344 3234.
