Top tips for a Cromer Home Buyers Survey


Cromer became a desirable destination in the 19th with the arrival of the facilities to the resort, such as the Pier. Many bankers from the town of Norwich made Cromer their summer home that they would visit with their families. Because of this, many Victorian houses can be found over looking the sea on streets such as the Promenade. There are also grand Georgian houses on Esplanade and dotted around the town.

There are modern houses in the development Park View that offers modern homes influenced by Cromer’s Victorian and Edwardian style. These vary from one-bedroom apartment through to large four-bedroom family homes.

A recent environmental search carried out for a property in Cromer, on the High Street, showed there was a potenial risk of coastal flooding within 250m of the property.

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).
Raised levels of noise pollution are caused by Norwich Road/A149. This affects St. Margaret's Lane, The Loke and Furze Hill. Cambridge is situated between two dual carriage ways so may be especially affected.
Some properties in Cromer may be affected by Coal Mining activity. The Coal Authority map shows there is a coal mining affected area within 4km of the town.

NorfolkNorfolk is a county in the East Anglia region of England and its coastline is on the North Sea, including the Wash. Its county town is Norwich and it is largely rural, although 40% of the population live in just four urban centres, namely Norwich (which is Norfolk's only city), Great Yarmouth, King's Lynn and Thetford.

One of its major tourist attractions is the Norfolk Broads, a network of rivers and lakes, which is a National Park. Adjacent counties include Lincolnshire, Cambridgeshire and Suffolk.

There are no motorways in the county - the principal trunk roads there are the A10 and A11 - although Norwich does have an international airport. There are two universities, namely the University of East Anglia located on the outskirts of Norwich, and Norwich University of the Arts, located in St George's Street in Norwich city centre.

Norfolk has a number of amusement parks, zoos, stately homes and nature reserves, including Thrigby Hall near Great Yarmouth (tiger enclosure, primates and reptiles), Holkham Hall (beautiful 18th century stately home with a deer park, Banham Zoo and Pensthorpe Nature Reserve near Fakenham (lapwing, Eurasian crane, Marabou stork).

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

Our RICS Surveyor, during a Home Buyers Survey, inspects both the inside and the outside of your property and searches in particular for subsidence, damp, infestations and any cracks or other damage to the property.

The procedure is non-intrusive. It is highly recommended that you get one, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, if you are thinking of buying a property in Cromer.

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 Cromer 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.

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

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

Many mistakenly think that a mortgage valuation is the same as a HomeBuyers Survey and the consequence is that home buyers can subsequently have to shell out money for repairing faults and defects that could well have been part of the bargaining process with the seller on purchase. The surveyor appointed by the lender conducts a mortgage valuation to estimate the value of the property you are looking to buy in Cromer: this survey is not concerned with detailing structural defects.

A HomeBuyers Survey lists and reports on defects and includes a full appraisal and valuation of the property which is completely independent of the mortgage lender. This knowledge can be used to get quotes for the cost of fixing defects and, most importantly, gives you evidence which can be used to bargain with the seller about sharing any such cost.
