Top tips for a King's Lynn Home Buyers Survey


King's Lynn is a seaport and market town in Norfolk amd dates bacl at least as far as Norman times, when it was a modest village. Its St George's Guidhall was built in 1406 and the Hanseatic Warehouse was built in 1475.

Housing is highly mixed in the area, with some period survivals such as the Victorian terraces in Tennyson Avenue and St John's Terrace, and plenty of housing stock built in the 20th century, particularly in the interwar period, such as the semi-detached and terrace houses in Bishop's Road and Park Avenue. More modern terrace3s can be found in Chapel Street. The estates of Woottons and Gaywood were built in the 1960s.

New build developments include the maisonettes in Wisbech Road and the semi-detached and terrace houses in Nar Valley Park, 25 Minnow Avenue.

A large number of properties in King's Lynn, particularly those in close proximity to the banks of the River Great Ouse, in streets such as Regent Way and Albion Street, 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).
According to the UK Government's Public Health England, some parts of King's Lynn, including streets such as Henry Bell Close and King John Avenue, are in a raised radon area, with properties built there having a higher probability than average of experiencing ground Radon emissions.

The raised Radon area has a maximum radon potential of 1-3% (the percentage is the chance of a property being built where Radon emissions might measure above the action level).

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.

Choosing the right survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, to get is important however both a HomeBuyers Report and a Building Survey will identify any suspicions of the main defects discussed below.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

Mortgage lenders in England and Wales require you to a valuation for the property you are buying so that they can gauge whether the amount you are paying is appropriate. This survey is called a Mortgage Valuation. The mortgage valuation is paid for by you however the results aren't always shared with you as the survey belongs to the mortgage lender. On top of which it doesn't include any survey into potential defects or structural issues that are too often found in properties.

There is also a degree of confusion because the mortgage valuation is referred to as a survey and so many buyers assume this is what is meant by 'have you done your survey?' It is important that when buying a property in King's Lynn that you arrange 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 at the mercy of undetected defects such as rising damp which can cost thousands to repair and would affect your future sale price if not repaired.
