Top tips for a Broxbourne Home Buyers Survey


Broxbourne is a commuter town in Hertfordshire on the northern borders of the Greater London area. It has a number of period houses and inns dating from the 16th to the 19th centuries along its High Street and its parish church of St Augustine was entirely rebuilt in the 15th century, although a 12th-century Purbeck marble font survives.

The railway arrived in 1840 which provided a boost to the town's population and housing. Dwellings today are highly varied. You can find the ubiquitous semi-detached properties built in the 1920s to the 1950s in roads like St Michael's Road and Bushby Avenue, however more modern detached properties can be found in places like Caldecot Way, Bassingbourne Close and Baas Hill and very modern town houses can be found in places like Robinia Road.

New build developments are available in several locations such as Rags Lane and being planned for Wormley.

Properties in Broxbourne which are built in close proximity to the New River and the River Lea (or Lee), in streets like St Catharine's Road and Ivybridge, are subject to flood warnings and 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).
According to the UK Government's Public Health England, some parts of Broxbourne, including streets such as Churchfields Lane and Mc Kenzie Road, are 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.
A recent Environmental Search for a property on Clyfton Close, Broxbourne, Hertfordshire, EN10 6NY, stated that the dwelling was within 50m of an area with potential for natural ground instability.

The British Geological Survey has assessed the area of search as having moderate potential for natural ground instability. This does not necessarily mean there is cause for concern in terms of the property's stability. Active subsidence will be dependent on local conditions, such as the proximity of trees or areas where trees have been removed, which require an inspection of the site to identify the nature of the ground on which the property is built. A house buyers survey is advised to look for signs of property damage that may indicate poor natural ground conditions.

HertfordshireHertfordshire is commonly abbreviated to the name Herts and is a county located in the south of England. it is bordered by Bedfordshire to the north, Cambridgeshire to the north-east, Essex to the east, Buckinghamshire to the west and Greater London to the south (it is classed as a 'Home County' for this reason). The county town of Hertfordshire is Hertford.

Hertfordshire has 3 motorways running through it - the M1, the M25 and the A1(M). It is particularly associated with new towns as it contains 5 in total: Stevenage, Welwyn Garden City, Hemel Hempstead, Hatfield and Letchworth. There are two airports just outside Hertfordshire's borders; Luton and Stansted. It also has a university, the University of Hertfordshire, which is in Hatfield. There are a number of independent schools in the area, including, for example, Haileybury (Turnford), St George's Harpenden, Haberdasher's Aske's (Elstree) and Berkhamsted.

For random facts; St Alban, who gave his name to the city in the county, was the earliest British saint - he was reputed to have been beheaded where the cathedral now stands; also Sele Mill near Hertford was the site of the first paper mill in Britain, established about 1488.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A RICS Home Buyers Survey non-intrusively inspects both the external and internal structure of a property for matters which include these, among others; damp, subsidence, infestations, cracks and damage.

Whichever you opt for out of a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, they are both excellent for peace of mind if you are considering buying a property in Broxbourne.

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.

The Home Buyer Survey will report on issues found, however you need to make sure that you choose the right Home Buyer Survey for your property because some defects require further detail and this is best served by booking a Building Survey.

You can find a local RICS surveyor by using the search at the bottom RHS of this page.

Why should I have a RICS Survey?

The survey should assist the buyer by flagging any concerns identified with the property which may allow them to make a reasoned and informed decision on whether to proceed with their purchase.

The report will detail any repairs or replacements identified and will also advise where further specialist advice may be necessary.

The property is inspected both internally and externally however the surveyor is only able to inspect areas where access has been provided and visibility has not been impeded.

If a buyer has any specific concerns they have identified, these should be flagged with the surveyor prior to inspection so that they can confirm that these can form part of the report and comment on them accordingly.
