Top tips for a Cheshunt Home Buyers Survey


Cheshunt is on the north edges of Greater London and was a settlement on Ermine Street, the main Roman road leading north from London. St Mary the Virgin parish church was built between 1418 and 1448 (a rebuild from 300 years or so before that).

There are properties from various eras in the town, including the Georgian and Victorian, but most of the homes were built in the 20th century and there was considerable development in the late 1960s and after, when estates such as Rosedale were created. Rosedale has many terrace houses.

You can find bungalows in Longfield Lane (detached and semi-detached) and large modern detached houses in Rags Lane. Sovereign Gate in Andrew's Lane is one example of where shared ownership has been offered on 2 and 3-bedroom modern family homes.

Properties in Cheshunt which are built near to the River Lea, the New River and Nags Brook, such as in Brookfield Lane West and Whitefields Road, 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).
A RICS surveyor doesn't test the boiler, however they do check to see if the boiler is on by using the hot water and by turning on the shower. You should always obtain the boiler installation certificate and the maintenance details from the seller during the conveyancing process.

If you need the gas checking, a local gas engineer in Harpenden is R & P Gibbs Ltd, 231 Turners Hill, Cheshunt, Waltham Cross EN8 9DG.
An Environmental Report will flag the potential for Contaminative Activities - this is something a surveyor will not report to you on.

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.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A RICS Home Buyers Survey involves an examination of the structure of the inside and the outside of a property aimed at pinpointing issues such as subsidence, damp, cracks, infestation and damage. The survey is non-intrusive.

If you are thinking of buying a property in Cheshunt, it is highly advisable to book one, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report,.

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 your Home Buyers Survey highlights concerns relating to any of these defects your surveyor explains what the issue is in detail and provides a recommendation as to what you should do to further investigate. An example of this is if your surveyor spots signs of damp within the property. Over 5,000 properties a week in the UK have damp proofing laid to combat the issue of rising damp and home buyers fear seeing mould, peeling wall paper and sodden floors as these are all tell-tale signs of rising damp.

If your property is showing these signs and your surveyor notes using their damp monitor that there is damp internally they'll advise you to get a damp specialist to attend the property, confirm the issue advising whether it is rising damp and quote for the costs in repairing with damp proofing.

If you're looking at buying a home in Cheshunt which is showing signs of damp, or any other defects then you MUST get a Home Buyers Survey. The costs for repairing the defects can run into thousands of pounds; however, If you can identify the problem before you purchase then you can get quotes for fixing it and either share the costs with the seller, or, in worst case examples, choose not to proceed.

Does the RICS Level 3 Building Survey include advice on extension works?

The RICS Building Survey report is a detailed defect report based on a visual inspection carried out by a Chartered Surveyor. The report is detailed and often includes photographs and a list itemising any defects identified with comment on any recommendations for remedial works or further investigations by specialists if required.

Advice on future works does not form part of the report but most surveyors are happy to provide their expert opinion on whether proposed works are possible. They may look at the position of manhole covers, height of the roof in the loft space, the floor joists in the loft space, and other structural indicators which would impede any proposed plans. This falls outside of the written report and any communications are usually provided on site or on the phone post inspection.

We would always recommend that you notify the surveyor that you might want to discuss proposed works with him, prior to the survey so he can ensure he takes this into account when completing his inspection.
