Halifax is a minster town in West Yorkshire and was strongly associated with the wool trade from the 15th century onward. Parts of Halifax Minster date from the 12th century.

West Central Halifax has older stone terrace houses while North Halifax has many ex-council houses built in the 50s and 60's of varying standards; in recent years many houses in North Halifax have been redeveloped or demolished as was the case with the Jumples block of flats. Abbey Park, an award winning development in the 1960s was demolished in the late 1990s.

Wheatley, Bradshaw, Holmfield and Illingworth Moor. Savile Park, Skircoat Green have many higher-priced properties, many of which are period detached or modern detached mansions.

Properties in Halifax which are built in close proximity to the Hebble Brook, in streets like Dyer Lane and Hill Park Avenue, are subject to flood warnings and alerts 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).
According to the UK Government's Public Health England, some parts of Halifax, including streets such as Back Clarence Street and Bedford Street North, is in a raised radon area, with properties built there having a higher probability than average of experiencing ground Radon emissions.

The raised Radon area has a maximum radon potential of 3-5% (the percentage is the chance of a property being built where Radon emissions might measure above the action level).

If you are concerned that a property you are buying is in an area of raised Radon, please click to visit Public Health England's UK Radon Map. Click also to find out more about Radon, Radon property searches and much more.
Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the Halifax area mainly centre around the main road – Cow Green and Barum Top, impacting roads and streets such as Gibbet Street and Trinity Road.

Yorkshire-SeIcpI.pngYorkshire is the largest county in the United Kingdom and it is made up of large subdivisions; North Yorshire, South Yorkshire, West Yorkshire and East Riding of Yorkshire; which administer their own parts of it although the whole is still recognised as a cultural region and geographical territory.

The largest city is Leeds although there are several large-sized cities in the county, such as Sheffield, Huddersfield and Hull and it also contains York, a very beautiful walled city. It is bordered by the counties of Durham, Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Cheshire, Lancashire and Westmorland.

Yorkshire boasts some wonderful natural areas such as the North York Moors and the Dales National Parks. The Howardian Hills and Nidderdale have been designated as Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Yorkshire County Cricket Club plays at Headingley in Leeds and there are a number of prominent football clubs in the county such as Leeds United, Sheffield United, Sheffield Wednesday and Middlesbrough.

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 Halifax.

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.

Can I be present during my Building Survey?

As standard, surveyors do not allow clients on site with them for several reasons. Most importantly, surveyors have a third party liability insurance that covers them whilst they are on the property in the unlikely event of any damages, this does not extend to the client and as such the surveyor would be liable in the event of any damages to the property.

The other reason is that the surveyor is there to do a job and has a long list of defects to look out for which requires their full attention. The presence of the client will understandably cause distractions and may cause the surveyor to miss something, not only could this lead the client to seeking restitution, it would ultimately affect the quality of the survey the client had paid for.
