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.

Is a mortgage valuation a Building Survey?

People have been known to confuse a mortgage valuation with a HomeBuyers Survey. This confusion can prove costly and end up in a home buyer having to fork out for expensive repair costs which should have been shared with the vendor with this reflected in a reduction in the original sale price. If you're buying a property in Hertford with a mortgage, your lender conducts its own mortgage valuation to calculate the value of the property and this is in no sense a report on structural defects.


A HomeBuyers Survey notes defects as well as including a full valuation of a property independently of the mortgage lender or anyone else. The information in it can be used to get quotes for the cost of fixing any issues and presents evidence for bargaining with the seller about sharing repair costs, if appropriate.
