Top tips for a Huntingdon Home Buyers Survey


Huntingdon is a market town in Cambridgeshire, which became chartered in 1205; its history dates back to the Anglo-Saxon era. Its Old Bridge, an excellent medieval bridge, was constructed in 1332 and is still in use.

It has a very good mix of properties, from the thatched roof cottages in Park Road, Brampton, to the large period renovations in Cow Lane, Godmanchester, to the terraced Victorian cottages in Huntingdon Road, to the 1950s semi-detached houses in Thirlmere, Stukeley Meadows to the modern flats in Park Square, Brookside.

New build developments include the detached houses in Bearscroft Lane, London Road, Godmanchester; the chalets in Sapley Road, Hartford and the terraced hoses in Alconbury Weald, Alconbury.

Survey Tip 1

Survey Tip 2

Survey Tip 3

Certain properties in Huntingdon which are built in close proximity to the River Great Ouse, in streets such as Ambury Road and East Chadley Lane (Godmanchester) are in areas 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).
A property based in Huntingdon, PE28 4EE, is, according to a recent Environmental Search, potential for ground instability within 50m of the property.

The British Geological Survey has assessed the area of search as having moderate potential for natural ground instability. This does not necessarily mean there is cause for concern in terms of the property's stability. 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. A house buyers survey is advised to look for signs of property damage that may indicate poor natural ground conditions.
Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the Huntingdon area mainly centre around the main road – A14, affecting roads and streets such as Waters Meet, Mill Common and Castle Hill.

CambridgeshireCambridgeshire is a county in East Anglia and Cambridge is its county town. It has large areas of very low-lying land, known as fenland. Its economy is predominantly agricultural although a large area surrounding Cambridge is concerned with high technology (computing, electronics and biochemistry) and is known as Silicon Fen.

There are two universities in the county; the University of Cambridge, which is the second oldest university in the English-speaking world, and the Angela Ruskin University. Cambridge also hosts a regional centre of the Open University. Cambridge is very much the transport hub of the region; its railway station offers connections to many urban destinations and fast, direct services to London. The A10 runs through the city and the M11 runs nearby to it.

Ely Cathedral contains the only Gothic Dome in the world and Holme Fen to the south of Peterborough is the lowest point in Britain (2.75m below sea level). Catherine of Aragon is buried in Peterborough Cathedral.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

Our RICS Surveyor, during a Home Buyers Survey in Huntingdon, 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, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is non-intrusive.

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.

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 Huntingdon 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 I get aerial photos of my property as part of my survey?

Your surveyor will take photographs of your roof as part of your survey. These may form part of a Building Survey or may be referred to in a Homebuyer Report.

These photos are not aerial photos; they are normally taken from ground level and possibly from using a device which enables photos to be taken from an upper window.

The surveyor takes photos as part of their checking of the property for defects; they will inspect all accessible areas in order to do this, including the drains and the loft (if this is present and they can get to it).
