Top tips for a Newmarket Home Buyers Survey


Newmarket is a market town in Suffolk in the East Anglia region of England and is particularly synonymous with thoroughbred horse racing. It hosts Palace House, originally built in 1610 by James I.

Newmarket has a great choice of properties from many periods, including the Georgian terraces in Newmarket Road, the large detached Victorian conversions in Snailwell Road and the 1950s 3-storey terrace properties off New Cheveley Road.

New build developments include the apartments in the Maltings; the semi-detached properties in Cricket Field Road, Mays Gardens and the flats in Sovereign Court, among others.

Properties in Newmarket which are built in close proximity to water courses, such as in streets like New Cut and Church Lane, are in areas where flood 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, Newmarket, including streets such as Old School Lane and Upware Road, is 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 5-10% (the percentage is the chance of a property being built where Radon emissions might measure above the action level).

If you are concerned that a property you are buying is in an area of raised Radon, please click to visit Public Health England's UK Radon Map. Click also to find out more about Radon, Radon property searches and much more.
Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the Newmarket area mainly centre around the main road – A14, Newmarket Bypass, affecting roads and streets such as Brickfield Avenue, Hyperion Way and Royal Palace Close.

A RICS Home Buyers Survey involves an examination of the structure of the inside and the outside of a property.

If the Home Buyers Survey flags up any of these defects 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 in Newmarket has subsidence, or any other defects then you MUST get a Home Buyers 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.

What’s the difference between a HomeBuyer Report and a Building Survey?

When it comes to property surveys for home buyers there are two main choices.

The first is the RICS HomeBuyer Report; this survey is specifically designed for post-1950s flats/bungalows/maisonettes or houses of standard construction. The report uses a 'traffic light' format to indicate the opinion of the surveyor on the various aspects of the building under consideration. The HomeBuyer Report includes a current market valuation as standard which can be used to compare with your property's agreed asking price.

The second option is the RICS Building Survey; this survey is reserved for older and larger properties that may have had the original fabric of the property altered or have unique features (i.e. a thatched roof). It is the most detailed visual inspection that can be carried out.

While it doesn’t include the property valuation that comes as standard with a HomeBuyer Report, many surveyors will often include in it an estimate of the cost of works for maintenance or upgrades to help with repairs or renovation to the property.
