According to the UK Government's Public Health England, Bridgend is in a raised Radon area with properties built there having a higher chance than average of experiencing ground radon emission.

Streets including Walter Street and Walters Road have a maximum radon potential of 5-10%. The percentage is the chance of a property being built where Radon emissions might measure above the action level.
Properties in some areas of Bridgend have a potential risk of being affected by river and surface flooding. According to information from an environmental search, properties in and near to streets such as Brewery Lane and Wyndham Street in close proximity to Ogmore River revealed that there is a potential risk of both surface and river flooding occurring.

Sometimes you will be advised to take out a Flood Risk Report examining these possibilities more deeply. Click to view a Flood Risk Report
Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the Bridgend area mainly stem from traffic from the A473, affecting nearby streets such as Angel Street and Nolton Street.

Rail traffic running through Bridgend also generates higher levels of noise pollution for nearby streets such as Court Road.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

Any number of people have been understandably confused between a mortgage valuation and a HomeBuyers Survey.

Your lender conducts its own valuation on the property in Bridgend you intend to buy to check that it is lending you the right sum of money in relation to the property's value. It is not intended to examine any defects the property may have.

When you book a HomeBuyers Survey from us, as well as receiving an independent valuation of the property you wish to buy, the primary focus is to establish whether the property has any defects which you should know about, for example rising damp or subsidence, which might, particularly as time passes, end up requiring even tens of thousands of pounds to put right.

This knowledge is naturally of great use to you, given how much you are intending to spend. You might, on the strength of the information, provided, negotiate with the seller to contribute towards the costs of repairing the defects or even pull out buying the property entirely.


Most importantly, any HomeBuyers Survey is squarely for your benefit and is independent of both your lender - if you are buying with a mortgage - and your vendor. Call 0333 344 3234 to get yours and to help your peace of mind.
