Top tips for a Hertford Home Buyers Survey


Hertford is Hertfordshire's county town and has been so since Saxon times. Its town centre still has its medieval layout with many timber-framed buildings hidden under later frontages, particularly in St Andrew Street. The Victorian era saw much building in the town as transport links to London improved.

There are many different styles of property in the area; from the bungalows from various periods as can be found in for example Wentworth Road or Wilton Crescent, to the Georgian manor houses in Marden Hill, to the Victorian cottages in Duncombe Road.

New build developments include the townhouses in Rush Green, where Help to Buy is an option.

A RICS Home Buyers Survey involves an examination of the structure of the inside and the outside of a property aimed at pinpointing issues such as subsidence, damp, cracks, infestation and damage.

The survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is non-intrusive and is highly recommended if you are looking at buying a property in Hertford.

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 Hertford 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.

Do your surveyors operate with time limits?

Unfortunately some surveyors in the industry do put time limits on how long they will inspect the property regardless of whether they properly finish the inspection or not.

This isn’t a challenge we encounter as our surveyors operate by staying on site as long as the inspection requires before leaving or if it really cannot be completed in one day, revisiting the next to ensure a full inspection is completed prior to submitting a report to a client.
