Top tips for a Mansfield Home Buyers Survey


There are remains of the 12th-century King John's Palace, in Clipstone, between Mansfield and Edwinstowe, in an area that was a retreat for royal families and dignitaries in the 14th and 15th centuries, for its location in Sherwood Forest and famed fresh air and exclusiveness. 

Mansfield has over 240 listed buildings which represent an important part of the district's architectural heritage. Most of its buildings date from the 14th and 15th centuries. A total of 10 per cent of the areas listed structures were found to be ‘at risk’ while two per cent of the area’s listed buildings were found to be in severe risk of rapid deterioration. 

 A beautiful Methodist church, a former doctor’s surgery and historic shops in the town centre. have been subsequently demolished and redeveloped. 

 Many standard construction semi-detached and terrace homes were built in the 1930’s. Houses were cheap because the supply of land for housing was very elastic. Many homes are now sold under the Help to Buy and Shared Ownership scheme.

There is only one River in Mansfield which is called the river Maun. 

Properties built very close to the river Maun are subject to flood warnings and alerts from time to time. The normal level of the River Maun at Field Mill in average weather conditions is between 0.59m and 0.70m. It has been between these levels for at least 150 days in the past year. 

The usual range of the River Maun at Field Mill in more extreme weather conditions is between 0.60m and 1.40m. 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).
There are a few properties in north Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire areas that have been affected by Subsidence. If you are concerned that a property you are looking to buy has been affected by Subsidence, you should consider getting a ground stability report.
Testing has shown that a considerable number of southern and central parts of Newark and Sherwood District Council's area are Radon affected. 

These include parts of Farnsfield, Edingley, Kirklington, Southwell, Thurgarton, Bleasby, Gonalston, Epperstone, Lowdham, Hoveringham, Caythorpe, Bulcote, Gunthorpe, Alverton, Kilvington, Staunton in the Vale, Cotham, Hawton, Balderton and Barnby in the Willows. 

In these areas there are only a small percentage of homes at or above the Government's Action Level of 200 Bq/m3. If you are concerned that a property you are buying is in an area of raised Radon, you should consider ordering a radon risk report.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A Home Buyers Survey is completed by a qualified RICS surveyor and delivers a visual inspection of the property in Mansfield and the surrounding garden. The aim of the survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is to identify potential risks or defects that you may not know are there such as cracks or damage to the structure of the property, subsidence, damp and infestations.

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 Mansfield 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.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

It is a common misconception that a mortgage valuation is a HomeBuyers Survey and this can leave home buyers exposed to high repair costs that could have been negotiated with the seller. A mortgage valuation is conducted by the lender’s surveyor to assess the value of the property and they do not provide a detailed report on structural defects.

A HomeBuyers Survey details defects and includes a full appraisal of the property independently to anyone else including the mortgage lender. You can use the information to obtain quotes to fix any defects and gives you the evidence to potentially share the costs with the seller.


Most savvy buyers make sure they get a HomeBuyers survey from an independent surveyor to make sure the property they are buying is free from defects. Call us on 0333 344 3234 to get the best HomeBuyers survey for your property in Mansfield.
