Top tips for a Luton Home Buyers Survey


Luton developed rapidly after the arrival of the railway in 1860 and in the century before 1901, the population increased more than tenfold to 39,000. Various industries were located there from 1905 onwards and into the interwar period, such as Vauxhall: this led to lots of private and council housing being built there in the 1920s and 1930s.

Luton was extensively bombed in the 2nd world war which was the cause of large council housing estates being built at Farley Hill, Stopsley, Limbury, Marsh Farm and Leagrave. 

There are large numbers of semi-detached properties in and around Luton, built in the 20th century, but there are a few surviving properties from earlier periods such the semi-detached houses in London Road and the Victorian terraces in Preston Gardnens.

There are various modern developments such as can be seen in Cavalier Close – some of these are offered on shared ownership terms.

Buildings in Luton built close to the River Lea, for example along the New Bedford Road have been subject to flood alerts and warnings 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 Luton are located in close proximity to Luton Airport and its associated flight paths.

A recent HomeBuyer Report carried out on a home in Twyford Avenue was one such property.

Properties such as this are subject to pollution in the air and air traffic noise may be audible from time to time.
Properties in some areas of Luton may be affected by overhead power lines or mobile phone masts.

A recent environmental search carried out for a property in Cowper Street revealed that there were overhead power lines or mobile phone masts located within 250m of the dwelling.

Overhead power lines and phone masts can be contentious and additionally may have a visual impact on the surrounding area.

BedfordshireBedfordshire is often abbreviated to Beds and is a county located to the East of England. It is a ceremonial county and a historic county, covered by three unitary authorities: Bedford, Central Bedfordshire, and Luton. Bedfordshire is bordered by Cambridgeshire to the northeast, Northamptonshire to the north, Buckinghamshire to the west and Hertfordshire to the southeast.

Bedford itself is halfway between Oxford and Cambridge and a railway line nicknamed the Varsity or Brain Line used to connect the two universities. Bedfordshire contains the Chiltern Hills, an area of outstanding natural beauty, as well as Woburn Abbey and Safari Park. John Bunyan, author of the Pigrim's Progress, was from the county (born Elstow, just south of Bedford) and actually spent 12 years in Bedford Gaol for his nonconformist views regarding the restoration of the monarchy!

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A RICS Home Buyers Survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, non-intrusively inspects both the external and internal structure of a property for matters which include these, among others; damp, subsidence, infestations, cracks and damage.

If you are thinking of buying a property in Luton, it is vitally important to book a Home Buyers Survey for your peace of mind.

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 HomeBuyers Survey flags up any of these defects in your property in Luton then our surveyor explains what you need to do to get further advice on how to investigate them and get It resolved.

If you are concerned about your property has subsidence, or any other defects then you MUST get a HomeBuyers Survey as the costs for repairing the defects can run into thousands of pounds. If you can identify the defect before you purchase then you can get quotes for fixing it and either share the costs with the seller, or, in worst case examples, choose not to proceed.
