Top tips for a Kidderminster Home Buyers Survey


Kidderminster is a large town in the Wyre Forest district of Worcestershire in the Midlands. It has a strong association with the carpet industry. The few period properties around generally tend to be found in out-of-town locations, such as the Georgian Goldness House in nearby Torton, although there are Victorian terraces in the area, such as in Wood Street.

There are many 1920s – 1950s standard construction semi-detached and terrace houses such as in Sutton Park Road and bungalows in Coningsby Drive and Greatfield Road. Larger detached properties can be found in Oldnall Road and modern detached properties in Hurcott Road.

New build developments include the townhouses in Park Lane and the detached houses in Stourport Road.

Properties in Kidderminster which are built in close proximity to the River Stour, in streets such as Mill Street and Crown Lane, 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).
Your RICS surveyor inspects drains during a survey of a property in Kidderminster, where the drain cover is accessible and on the site of the property.

If the drains are reported to be blocked you may need to employ a drainage company to inspect the drains with CCTV such as Draincure UK.
Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the Kidderminster area mainly centre around the main road – Park Butts Ringway A456, and of rail pollution where the railway line crosses Yew Tree Road.

WorcestershireWorcestershire is a county in the West Midlands and Worcester is its county town and is a cathedral city, containing the beautiful Worcester Cathedral. The county is mainly rural, containing the Malvern Hills, which border it to the west. The Malvern Hills have been classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). The Worcestershire Beacon, which at 425m is the highest point in the county, lies in this range.

Some parts of the county to its north east are in the industrial area of the West Midlands. Major settlements include Kidderminster, Bromsgrove and Redditch (all satellite towns of Birmingham). Adjoining counties include West Midlands, Warwickshire, Gloucestershire, Staffordshire and Shropshire.

Worcester is the largest populated urban area and contains the county's one university, the University of Worcester. It is also the main transport hub, offering direct railway services from Worcester Shrub Hill to London Paddington and many other major conurbations.

There are 3 motorways running through the county; the M5, the M42 and M50. Two major rivers flow through the county, the Severn and the Avon.

Arguably Kidderminster Harriers is the county's most famous football team – it is non-league and one of the oldest in the country – and Worcestershire County Cricket Club's (WCCC) home ground is at New Road in Worcester. WCCC last won the county championship in the late 80s in the era of Ian Botham, Graham Dilley and Graeme Hick.

The village of Broadheath, about 6 miles (10 km) North-West of the city of Worcester, is the birthplace of the composer Edward Elgar. Worcester’s Berrow’s Journal has a claim to be the oldest surviving newspaper in the world, publishing started in 1709.

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

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

When you get a mortgage your mortgage lender requires you to pay for a survey valuation of the property. The aim of this survey is to give the mortgage lender reassurance that the property is worth what you are paying. Although you pay for the mortgage valuation survey, it belongs to the mortgage lender and often you won't be allowed to see it.


It is paramount that when buying a property in Kidderminster, or you get your own HomeBuyers Survey that reports on defects or potential issues with the property; either a HomeBuyers Report or a Building Survey. Buying without a survey could leave you exposed to any repair costs or defects that you didn't spot. Defects such as subsidence can cost thousands to repair and would affect your future sale price if not repaired.

A HomeBuyer Survey will give you reassurance to buy your new home without worrying about what is in the closet. If you aren't sure what you should do or which HomeBuyer Survey to get call us on 0121 285 2938 and we'll talk you through the options - this is what we do!
