Top tips for a Norwich Home Buyers Survey


Norwich is a city – the only city in Norfolk County – on the River Wasum in East Anglia and was the largest city in England other than London in the 11th century.

Norwich Castle was founded soon after the Norman Conquest and Norwich Cathedral was completed in 1145 with the Norman tower you can still see today.

Norwich suffered extensive bomb damage during World War II, affecting large parts of the old city centre and Victorian terrace housing around the centre.

Norwich has suburban areas on the western, northern and eastern sides, including Costessey, Taverham, Hellesdon, Bowthorpe, Old Catton, Sprowston and Thorpe St Andrew.

The 19th century saw an explosion in Norwich's size and much of its housing stock, as well as commercial building in the city centre, dates from this period. The local architect of the Victorian and Edwardian periods who has continued to command most critical respect was George Skipper.

The city continued to grow through the 20th century, and much housing, particularly in areas further out from the city centre, dates from that century.

Much of the replacement postwar stock was designed by the local authority architect, David Percival.

New build developments include detached houses in Blue Boar Lane, Sprowston and Colney Lane, Cringleford; flats in Thorpe Road, apartments in Wherry Road and semi-detached houses in Wroxham Road.

Survey Tip 1

Properties in Norwich which are built in close proximity to the River Yare and the River Wensum, in streets such as Oak Street and Rosemary Lane, are 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).
A recent Environmental Search has stated that a property in Meadow Rise Road, Norwich, NR2 3QE, is within 250m of an area where there is the potential for ground instability relating to non-coal mining.

The British Geological Survey has assessed that hazards because of underground non-coal mine workings in this area are highly likely. This area is known or suspected to contain underground mining for minerals and/or other materials where workings are likely to be extensive. This is not necessarily cause for concern; a house buyer's survey should be considered to test for signs of property damage which may relate to non-coal mining. Additionally, it should be noted that there is always the possibility of excavations that are outside of the scope of this dataset which could affect ground stability.
When a RICS surveyor is carrying out either a building survey or a homebuyer report they will switch the lights on and off. If they feel that there is a problem with the electricity that needs to be investigated they will advise you to consult an electrician.

A local electricion within the Norwich area is C.G Electrical Services, 21 Hughenden Road, Norwich, Norfolk, NR1 2PX.

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.

Norfolk has a number of amusement parks, zoos, stately homes and nature reserves, including Thrigby Hall near Great Yarmouth (tiger enclosure, primates and reptiles), Holkham Hall (beautiful 18th century stately home with a deer park, Banham Zoo and Pensthorpe Nature Reserve near Fakenham (lapwing, Eurasian crane, Marabou stork).

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 Norwich, it is vitally important to book a Home Buyers Survey for your peace of mind.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

It is a common misconception that a mortgage valuation is a HomeBuyers Survey and this can leave HomeBuyers 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 you are interested in buying in Norwich 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 Norwich.
