Top tips for a Dudley Home Buyers Survey


With the Industrial Revolution came great development within Dudley both with housing and the town itself. The population grew and houses were built and many of those Georgian and later, Edwardian properties are still available. Grand Georgian detached properties can be found on Sandyfields Road and smaller Edwardian houses can be found on Gate Street and Tipton Street.

There is a large off-plan property that is being converted from the Dudley Guest Hospital to apartments that will be designed for contemporary living. It will be known as Bourne Hall once conversion is complete. The nearest new development to Dudley is Himley View in Kingswinford which offers two bedroom apartments, some of quick are available to be purchased through the Help to Buy scheme.

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 Dudley 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 0121 285 2938 to get yours and to help your peace of mind.
