Top tips for a Huddersfield Home Buyers Survey


Huddersfield is a large market town in West Yorkshire and has a rich history related to the Industrial Revolution and has many examples of fine Victorian architecture, including its railway station, described by John Betjeman, who was a poet laureate in his time, as 'the most splendid station façade in England'.

The arrival of the railway in 1846 aided the town's exponential growth causing a new town to be created to the west of the original core around the parish church and the Beast Market at the junction of Northgate, Southgate and Westgate. A grid of streets was laid out north of Westgate leading up to a new square in front of the railway station and many Victorian properties in this area have survived.

The local council bought the Ramsden Estate in 1920 and constructed much municipal housing from this period, predominantly semi-detached and terrace houses. 

The areas of Springwood, Highfield, Thornton Lodge and Dalton Fold above the town centre have some modern detached properties and many period survivals and Edgerton in particular has some excellent Georgian and Victorian detached properties and villas, many with Gothic style frontages, particularly around Queen’s Road, Murray Road, Bryan Road and Binham Road.

Between 2011 and 2013, the Moldgreen area, which had been known for its deprived housing, was redeveloped with stone-built 1 and 2-bedroom apartments, as can be seen in roads like Poplar Street and Gelder Terrace.

New build developments include the detached houses in Lindley, Farnley Tyas and Lepton (Whitley Willows) and the semi-detached homes and townhouses in Lindley Park.

Survey Tip 1

Survey Tip 2

Survey Tip 3

Properties in Huddersfield which are built in close proximity to the River Colne, the River Holme and the Huddersfield Broad Canal, in streets such as Day Street and Firth Street, are in an area where flood warnings and alerts are issued 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).
Properties sometimes have issues with ground stability in certain locations in Huddersfiled.

In a recent environmental search, taken out for a property in Corby Street, the report noted that there was a man made ground instability within 25m of the property.

This should not be taken to mean that the property in question actually suffered/suffers from subsidence however as "active subsidence will be dependent on local conditions, such as the proximity of trees or areas where trees have been removed, which require an inspection of the site to identify the nature of the ground on which the property is built."

Properties in some areas of Huddersfield are built in designated smoke control areas.

A recent local authority search done for a dwelling in Croft Gardens noted that the property was in such a smoke control area.

Under the terms of Section 20 of the Clean Air Act 1993, smoke emissions from all buildings are prohibited unless an exemption has been made by the Secretary of State under Section 21 of the Act.

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?

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 Huddersfield.

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.

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.
