Top tips for a Northampton Home Buyers Survey


Northampton is the county town of Northamptonshire in the East Midlands region of England. Signs of settlement there date back at least to the Bronze Age. Northampton Castle was built in 1084.

The town grew when the Grand Union Canal was created and more so when the railway arrived in the 19th century and there are period properties still standing from these times. Much council housing was built in the 1920s and 1930s largely to the east, north and south of the town, including Abington, Far Cotton, Kingsley, Kingsthorpe and Dallington.

More housing was built in the 1970s and 1980s in Lumbertubs, Moulton Park and Round Spinney to the east, followed by Briar Hill, Camp Hill and East and West Hunsbury in the south of the town. Housing has increase further since the turn of the Millennium.

New build developments can be found in Hardingstone, Wooton, Moulton and Buckton Fields, of various types of dwelling, particularly detached houses.

Properties built in Northampton which are in close proximity to the River Nene, in streets such as Greenwood Road and Stanley 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).
According to the UK Government's Public Health England, some parts of Northampton, including streets such as Thirlestane Road and Delapre Street, 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 of greater than 30% (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.
Wind energy is one of several alternative energy sources; however, location of wind farms or turbines can be contentious due to visual and auditory impact on the surrounding area.

A recent Environmental Search indicated that a property on Syers Green Close, Long Buckby, Northampton, NN6 7QW, was found to be within 4km of existing or proposed wind farms or wind turbines.

The survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is completed by a Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) registered Surveyor so they are fully trained to provide you with the detail you need to give you the salient facts when you are looking to buy your home in Northampton.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

Confusion can arise regarding mortgage valuations and HomeBuyers Surveys. The unfortunate result is that property buyers can sometimes find themselves having to spend a great deal of money repairing faults and defects which might well have - and ideally would have - formed part of the bargaining process with the vendor when negotiations were taking place.

Lenders appoint surveyors to carry out valuations to estimate market values of properties but the survey has no concern with investigating structural defects.

A HomeBuyers Survey notes and reports on defects and has a full appraisal and valuation of a property, which, most importantly, is completely independent of the mortgage lender. You can use this information to get quotes for how much it would cost to fix any defects detected in your property in Northampton. More importantly, the survey can provide evidence which you can use to bargain with the seller about sharing repair costs. Book your HomeBuyers Survey for your property in Northampton by calling 0333 344 3234 and get yourself some well-earned peace of mind.
