Top tips for a Liverpool Home Buyers Survey


Liverpool is a city in North West Englandin the Merseyside area and has a rich history, particularly as a port.

Liverpool's history means that there are a considerable variety of architectural styles found within the city, ranging from 16th century Tudor buildings to modern-day contemporary architecture. The majority of buildings in the city date from the late-18th century onwards, the period during which the city grew into one of the foremost powers in the British Empire. Any visitor to Liverpool is likely to spot the many Victorian red-brick buildings, particularly in many residential areas near the town centre.

Liverpool grew hugely from the 18th century and its first commercial wet dock was built in 1715. In 1830, Liverpool and Manchester became the first cities to have an intercity rail link.

Its rapid development continued throughout the 19th century and many of the properties in the immediate hinterland of the town centre, such as along Mountpleasant and Parliament Street were built in this period, some of them very large mansions although many have been converted into flats. Similarly large houses can be found along Princes Avenue and Smithdown Road.

Large numbers of council houses and private houses were built in the 1920s and 1930s, in areas like Allerton, Knowsley, Anfield and Everton.

The Blitz hit Liverpool hard and there was much redevelopment and housing reconstruction postwar. However much of this has subsequently been redesigned, particularly in the 21st century – there are many new buildings in areas like the Commercial District, the King's Dock, Mann Island, the Lime Street Gateway, the Baltic Triangle, the RopeWalks, and the Edge Lane Gateway.

New build developments include the large detached houses around Victoria Road, Formby and Golf Road, Freshfield and the apartments in Rumford Place and Picton Road (Wavertree). 

In February 2019,  Homes England announced that £10 million would be given to build 1,500 family homes on Liverpool's Festival Gardens site near the heart of the city.

Properties in Liverpool which are built in close proximity to the River Mersey as well as East Float and West Float, in streets such as Duke Street and Tower Road, 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).
Some properties in Liverpool are located nearby to existing or proposed sites for wind farms or wind turbines.

A recent environmental search carried out for a property in Edmund Street for example, flagged up that the property was built within 4km of existing or proposed wind farms or turbines.

The location of wind farms or turbines can be contentious due to visual and auditory impact.
Properties in some areas of Liverpool may be affected by environmental constraints.

A recent environmental search carried out for a property in Edmund Street revealed that the property was within 250m of an area likely to be impacted by environmental constraints. These included World Heritage Sites - Liverpool - Maritime Mercantile City.

Areas which have been designated as having environmental or historical importance may impose constraints on property or land developments or alterations.

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 Liverpool.

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.

The costs for making good or repairing some of these defects can run into thousands of pounds; however, If identified within a survey you can get quotes for fixing it and either share the costs with the seller, or, in worst case examples, choose not to proceed.

How long does your survey take?

We book the earliest possible slot for your RICS surveyor to carry out their inspection for your RICS home buyers survey. Then, on the day, they visit the property and inspect all accessible areas, concentrating on signs and suspicions of defects and issues.

The actual time your surveyor takes over the inspection varies with each property – you can imagine that one for a small flat for a HomeBuyers Report will normally take less than one for a large mansion for a Building Survey. It is likely to be anything between 1 ½ hours to 3 hours.

SAM Conveyancing's RICS surveyors call you on the day of the inspection after carrying it out to go over any major concerns and findings and then they complete the report and return it to you within 5 working days.
