Top tips for a Ely Home Buyers Survey


Ely is a cathedral city in Cambridgeshire and is rich in history. The cathedral dates back to 1083 but was restored in 1845 and 1870. Akeman Street, a Roman road, passes through the city. The railway arrived in 1845, providing a stimulus to population and housing growth.

There is housing from many different eras in and around the city, some medieval cottages, Georgian and Victorian grand houses and terraces and plenty of properties built in the 20th century, from the municipal building which occurred in the interwar period and post-2nd world war as well as private estates.

Additionally, the city has undergone rapid growth in recent years, with a significant amount of new housing development on its north-western edge, and on a range of other ‘infill’ sites.

New build developments include the modern apartment blocks in St Mary's Court and the detached, semi-detached and terrace houses in Mayfield Close, among others.

Properties built Ely which are in close proximity to the River Great Ouse or are in a large section of the fenland to Ely's west, in streets such as The Dock and West Fen Road, are in an area where flood warnings and alerts are issued 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).
Some properties in Ely are located nearby to existing or proposed sites for wind farms or wind turbines.

A recent environmental search carried out for a property in Prickwillow Road for example, flagged up that the property was built within 4km of existing or proposed wind farms or turbines.

The location of wind farms or turbines can be contentious due to visual and auditory impact.
Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the Ely area mainly centre around the main road – Bridge Road A142, and of rail pollution where the railway line crosses The Dock.

CambridgeshireCambridgeshire is a county in East Anglia and Cambridge is its county town. It has large areas of very low-lying land, known as fenland. Its economy is predominantly agricultural although a large area surrounding Cambridge is concerned with high technology (computing, electronics and biochemistry) and is known as Silicon Fen.

There are two universities in the county; the University of Cambridge, which is the second oldest university in the English-speaking world, and the Angela Ruskin University. Cambridge also hosts a regional centre of the Open University. Cambridge is very much the transport hub of the region; its railway station offers connections to many urban destinations and fast, direct services to London. The A10 runs through the city and the M11 runs nearby to it.

Ely Cathedral contains the only Gothic Dome in the world and Holme Fen to the south of Peterborough is the lowest point in Britain (2.75m below sea level). Catherine of Aragon is buried in Peterborough Cathedral.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A 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, if you are considering buying a property in Ely, incredibly important.

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.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

Many people are not entirely sure about the difference between a mortgage valuation and a HomeBuyers Survey.

Your lender conducts its own valuation on the property in Ely 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 which might affect the property.

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 issues 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 entirely for YOUR benefit and is independent of both your lender - if you are buying with a mortgage - and your vendor. Call 0333 344 3234 to get yours and to help your peace of mind.
