Top tips for a Harrogate Home Buyers Survey


Harrogate is a highly-regarded spa town in North Yorkshire, in Yorkshire's West Riding. It grew out of two smaller settlements, in the 17th century. Its spa water was discovered in the 16th century, which led to its increasing popularity in the Georgian era, when it developed considerably. Grove House, formerly the World's End Inn, originated as an inn which catered for visitors to the spa town and dates back at least as far as 1728.

The southern end of central Harrogate consists largely of detached houses that have been converted to offices, although Harrogate Magistrates' Court and Harrogate Central Library can be found on Victoria Avenue.

Harrogate has many parts, some of them are: The Duchy estate, an affluent area close to central Harrogate where most houses are large detached homes or large detached homes converted into flats; High Harrogate, an inner section to the east of the town centre, focused on Westmoreland Street and the A59 Skipton Road, which has many terraced houses; Harlow Hill, which has a number of new developments; New Park, which has many terraced houses and Hornbeam Park, a very recently-developed area.

New build developments include the large detached and semi-detached houses in Sussex Avenue and Connaught Court; the town houses in Bartle Mews and the apartments off Waterloo Street.

I’m buying a new build property, what survey do I need?

If you are purchasing a new build property in Harrogate you will need to have a snagging survey carried out by a RICS surveyor. This is an independent inspection looking specifically for faults in new build properties such as sealant in showers, cracked tiles and many other areas.

A snagging survey is designed to find out if there are any immediate problems with your new-build home. The surveyor will provide a report to the buyer with a listing of the areas within the new property whereby sub-standard workmanship exists and good practice has not been used and poor finishing’s are evident.

The snagging report can be provided to the developer and you can negotiate to get the works completed prior or after you complete your purchase - who is going to repair the snags should however be agreed prior to completion.
