Top tips for a Leamington Spa Home Buyers Survey


Leamington Spa has plenty of Regency architecture (classical buildings built during the Regency Era). The best roads for this type of architecture are The Parade, Clarendon Square and Lansdowne Circus where tall, white classical buildings stand proud.

In 1830, Queen Victoria visited the town, as a princess, and gave it its ‘Royal Prefix’. It can now be known as ‘Royal Leamington Spa’. As a result of this, the town’s popularity grew and more properties were built. Victorian houses can be found on Lillington Road and Tachbrook Road.

New developments in Leamington Spa include Meadowsweet Farm off Harbury Lane that offers one ot five bedroom homes designed for contemporary living. Some properties within this development can be bought via the Help to Buy Scheme. Similar developments include The Redwoods and Avonbridge Walk.

How long does a RICS Building Survey take?

RICS Surveyors often only have one or two inspections a day to ensure they allocate adequate time to assess a property for its defects and issues.

On average our surveyors will spend two to three hours on a standard sized home to complete the full Level 3 RICS Building Survey, however, this can vary for a number of reasons.

It may be that there has been major works done to the property or a major defect is discovered and requires further investigation or access to all areas of the property is not immediately available. This is why our surveyors do not operate with time constraints – they stay on site as long as they need to complete the full inspection.
