New build developments in the county include terraced houses in Church Street, Northrepps; detached houses in Burnham Market and Holme-next-the-Sea; park homes in Brick Kiln Road, Hevingham, Norwich and modern apartments in Prince of Wales Road, Norwich and Bacton Road, North Walsham.

Properties in Norfolk which are built in close proximity to its larger rivers such as the River Bure, the River Nar, the River Wensum, the River Yare, the River Glaven, the River Wissey and the River Babingley and some which are on the coastline, may be in areas 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).
According to the UK Government's Public Health England, some parts of Norfolk, including West Newton and Dersingham, are 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 which is 3-5% (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.
Areas can be designated as having environmental or historical importance; as such there may be constraints on property or land developments or alterations.

A recent Environmental Search stated that a property in Beech Close, Swaffham, Norfolk, PE37 7TU, is within 250m of an area likely to be impacted by environmental constraints.

NorfolkNorfolk is a county in the East Anglia region of England and its coastline is on the North Sea, including the Wash. Its county town is Norwich and it is largely rural, although 40% of the population live in just four urban centres, namely Norwich (which is Norfolk's only city), Great Yarmouth, King's Lynn and Thetford.

One of its major tourist attractions is the Norfolk Broads, a network of rivers and lakes, which is a National Park. Adjacent counties include Lincolnshire, Cambridgeshire and Suffolk.

There are no motorways in the county - the principal trunk roads there are the A10 and A11 - although Norwich does have an international airport. There are two universities, namely the University of East Anglia located on the outskirts of Norwich, and Norwich University of the Arts, located in St George's Street in Norwich city centre.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A 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.

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.

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 Norfolk.
