Top tips for a Flitwick Home Buyers Survey


Flitwick is a small town in Bedfordshire, known as hamlet since at least 1381. It hosts Flitwick Manor, built in 1632. Its population has expanded rapidly in recnet years and has been a spur to house building.

Property styles are varied, from the occasional large Victorian house, such as you find in Brookes Road, to the many semi-detached houses built in various periods, such as the bay-fronted Victorian ones in Kings Road to the classic 1950s style ones in Station Road and, for example, town houses in Beaumont Mews, among others.

New build developments include the detached houses and bungalows in the High Street and the detached houses in Steppingley Road

BedfordshireBedfordshire is often abbreviated to Beds and is a county located to the East of England. It is a ceremonial county and a historic county, covered by three unitary authorities: Bedford, Central Bedfordshire, and Luton. Bedfordshire is bordered by Cambridgeshire to the northeast, Northamptonshire to the north, Buckinghamshire to the west and Hertfordshire to the southeast.

Bedford itself is halfway between Oxford and Cambridge and a railway line nicknamed the Varsity or Brain Line used to connect the two universities. Bedfordshire contains the Chiltern Hills, an area of outstanding natural beauty, as well as Woburn Abbey and Safari Park. John Bunyan, author of the Pigrim's Progress, was from the county (born Elstow, just south of Bedford) and actually spent 12 years in Bedford Gaol for his nonconformist views regarding the restoration of the monarchy!

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A Home Buyers Survey is completed by a qualified RICS surveyor and delivers a visual inspection of the property in Flitwick and the surrounding garden. The aim of the survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is to identify potential risks or defects that you may not know are there such as cracks or damage to the structure of the property, subsidence, damp and infestations.

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 the Home Buyers Survey shows up any such problems, our appointed surveyor will explain to you what you should do to get more in-depth information about the type and scope of the matter and what is required to fix it. 

If you are worried about any defects that you think your property in Flitwick has, we strongly recommend you get a Home Buyers Survey as the cost of remedying the problem might grow to many thousands of pounds as time progresses.

Can I negotiate the price with the seller’s solicitor?

Within the survey report there will be a section for your legal advisor. If there are any defects spotted at the property that require further attention it will be noted in this section of the report and your solicitor can flag these with in her enquiries.

Should there be any issues raised by your building surveyor that will be costly in the future, you can discuss options with the seller. It’s typical to negotiate one of two resolutions: either the seller agrees to accept a lower offer price for the property, or they agree to carry out the required repairs as a condition of the sale. In the latter case, this agreement would usually be confirmed in writing as part of the legal contract. Make sure that all correspondence regarding negotiations with the sellers is agreed by both solicitors.
