BristolBristol County is a county which predominantly consists of Bristol city and conurbation and is bordered by the counties of Somerset and Gloucestershire. It is part of a limestone area which runs from the Mendip Hills in the south to the Cotswolds in the northeast.

The main motorway passing through the county is the M5, however there are two 'spur' motorways additionally; the M32, which connects the town centre to the M4 and the M49 which connects the M5 and M4. Bristol has its own international airport.

Bristol has 2 universities, the University of Bristol, a member of the prestigious Russell Group of Universities, and the University of the West of England.

Bristol has strong associations with Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the great Victorian engineer, because not only did he design the Great Western Railway between Bristol and London Paddington but also built 2 oceangoing steamships there and not least designed the beautiful Clifton Suspension Bridge, which is well worth a visit.

The Bristol Old Vic is arguably the most famous theatre in the city and the largest music venue (Bristol is a hotbed of numerous types of music) is the Colston Hall. Bristol is also home to the Watershed Media Centre and the Arnolfini Gallery, both of which are in dockside warehouses. The city hosts two Football League teams, namely Bristol Rovers and Bristol City. It is also host to the Gloucestershire County Cricket Club, a first-class county, which plays the majority of its home games at the Bristol County Ground.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A RICS Home Buyers Survey is a visual inspection of the grounds and the internal/external structure of the property and identifies defects such as cracks or damage to the structure of the property, subsidence, damp and infestations.

Some of these defects you may not even see or know what to look for which makes getting a Home Buyers Survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, incredibly important when you are considering buying a home in Cotham.

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.

Should any issues be flagged up in the Home Buyers Survey, our surveyor will tell you what you need to do to get more in-depth advice on the extent and seriousness of the issue and what needs to be done to remedy it. 

If you are worried about a crack or cracks or indeed any other defects that you think your property in Cotham has, we strongly recommend you get a Home Buyers Survey as the cost of remedying the problem might snowball into many thousands of pounds further down the line. As an example of the costs, underpinning a property due to subsidence can be upwards of £10,000.

How long do I have to wait for my survey?

When you instruct Sam Conveyancing to complete a survey on a property you will receive an email from us stating all the information that you need to know about your survey.

Once our surveyor has completed the survey at the property they will call you when they are back in their office between 4pm-6pm on the same the day to inform you if they found any defects at the property.

The surveyor will then type up the report and email it directly to you 5 working days later. However, If following the survey the surveyor feels the report is going to take longer to produce than the normal time frame, due to the amount of detail required, then they’ll advise you of when the survey report will be made available to you.
