Top tips for a Gloucester Home Buyers Survey


Gloucester is a city in southwest England and is the county town of Gloucestershire. The Romans originally founded the settlement in AD 97.

A good number of medieval and Tudor period gabled and half timbered houses survive from earlier periods of Gloucester's history.

The sixteenth and seventeenth centuries saw the foundation of two of Gloucester's grammar schools: the Crypt School in 1539 and Sir Thomas Rich's School in 1666. Both still flourish as grammar schools today, along with Ribston Hall and the High School for Girls, Gloucester (Denmark Road).

There are many buildings surviving from the Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian periods, particularly Victorian terraces such as can be found in St Aldate Street and Northgate Street.

Much municipal and private houses, primarily consisting of semi-detached and terrace dwellings, were built in the interwar period and postwar in areas such as Abbeydale, Barton and Tredworth, Hempsted, Matson, Podsmead, Quedgeley, Wotton and Westgate.

New build developments include the townhouses in Brockworth and the detached houses in Brockworth.

Survey Tip 1

Survey Tip 3

Properties in Gloucester which are built close to the River Severn, the River Twyver and the docks, in streets such as for example in streets such as Severn Road and Llanthony Road, are in an area where flood alerts and warnings 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).
Your RICS surveyor inspects drains during a survey of a property in Gloucester, where the drain cover is accessible and on the site of the property.

If the drains are reported to be blocked you may need to employ a drainage company to inspect the drains with CCTV such as Drain Doctor Plumbing and Drainage Gloucester.
Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the Gloucester area mainly centre around the main road – Burton Way - A430, and of rail pollution where the railway line crosses Metz Way A4302.

GloucestershireGloucestershire is a county in south west England, whose county town is the city of Gloucester. It also contains major towns including Cheltenham, Cirencester, Tewkesbury and Stroud.

Cheltenham is perhaps chiefly known for 2 things, the famous racecourse which is the venue of the annual Gold Cup, and GCHQ, a huge building which houses the UK Government's communications heaquarters.

The Forest of Dean, part of the Cotswold Hills and some of the flat fertile valley of the River Severn all feature within the county. Neighbouring counties include Monmouthshire (in Wales), Herefordshire, Warwickshire, Worcestershire, Oxfordshire, Wiltshire, Somerset and Bristol.

Gloucestershire has 2 universities, the University of Gloucestershire and the Royal Agricultural University. The county has many notable religious buildings including the cathedral of Gloucester and the churches of Cirencester and Tewkesbury. Other notable buildings include Calcot Barn in Calcot, a relic of Kingswood Abbey, Thornbury Castle, a Tudor country house, Badminton House, seat of the Dukes of Beaufort, Sudeley Castle, burial place of Catherine Parr and the house of Edward Jenner, the originator of the first smallpox vaccine.

There are a number of royal residences in the county including Highgrove House, Gatcombe Park, and (formerly) Nether Lypiatt Manor.

The county has 2 motorways, the M5 (Exeter to Birmingham) and the M50, which is essentially a spur off the M5 at Eckington which connects with Ross-on-Wye.

Gloucestershire County Cricket Club's home ground is at Bristol, an anomaly which dates back to when the city was part of the county, which is no longer the case.

The county hosts an annual "cheese-rolling" event at Cooper's Hill, near Brockworth and also the Cotswold Games.

A RICS Home Buyers Survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, non-intrusively inspects both the external and internal structure of a property for matters which include these, among others; damp, subsidence, infestations, cracks and damage.

If you are thinking of buying a property in Gloucester, it is vitally important to book a Home Buyers Survey for your peace of mind.

If the HomeBuyers Survey flags up any of these defects in your property in Gloucester then our surveyor explains what you need to do to get further advice on how to investigate them and get It resolved.

If you are concerned about your property has subsidence, or any other defects then you MUST get a HomeBuyers Survey as the costs for repairing the defects can run into thousands of pounds. If you can identify the defect 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.

Does a surveyor report on signs of infestation?

A RICS surveyor will always highlight any signs or suspicions of infestations during their inspection of a property, whether this is the visible signs of droppings, jagged markings from insect tunnelling or burrowings.

The main culprits of infestation in property are rats and mice, woodworm and termites, dry/wet rot and Japanese Knotweed and surveyors will highlight signs of these to you over the phone or within their report and will always direct you to a specialist to ascertain the remedy for removal.
