Top tips for a Hertfordshire Home Buyers Survey


Hertfordshire is a home county to the north of London in southern England. Its major settlements are Hemel Hempstead, Stevenage, Watford and St Albans, although Hertford remains its county town.

The county's landmarks span many centuries, ranging from the Six Hills in the new town of Stevenage built by local inhabitants during the Roman period, to Leavesden Film Studios.

The volume of intact medieval and Tudor buildings surpasses London, in places in well-preserved conservation areas, especially in St Albans.

There is a large variety of housing stock and the rural areas often have surviving medieval properties.

New build developments include large detached houses in Woodland Way, Welwyn and in Newlands Avenue, Radlett; shared ownership studio flats in Bessemer Road, Welwyn Garden City and modern apartments in Waterhouse Street, Hemel Hempstead and Park Place, Stevenage among many others.

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 Hertfordshire.

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.
