Top tips for a Nottingham Home Buyers Survey


Nottingham is a city in the East Midlands which predates Anglo-Saxon times. Nottingham Castle was originally constructed in 1068.

The area around Oxford and Regent Street has a number of Georgian buildings and St Barnabas' RC Church is a Gothic revival building built by Pugin. Some parts of its eastern centre were rebuilt in the 1970s and the Lace Market area south of Hockley has many 4 to 7-storey red brick warehouses from the Victorian period, many of which have been converted into apartments.

Nottingham has several large council and private estates built mainly between the 1920s and 1950s, including the St Ann's, Broxtowe, Strelley, Bilborough, Apsley and Clifton.

More council homes – nearly 15,000 – were built in Nottingham in the 1970s than in any other decade: old people's complexes, low-rise flats, semi-detached and terrace houses. Many of the houses have been bought independently under the Right to Buy scheme.

There are many new build developments such as in Cotgrove and Edwalton, with Help to Buy often available.


In May 2019, Homes England announced the completion of a deal to provide 3,000 new homes and 100,000 square metres of employment space in Ruschcliffe in the Fairham site. Click on 3,000 new homes for Nottinghamshire to find out more.

Survey Tip 3

Properties in Nottingham which are built in close proximity to the River Trent, the River Leen and the Nottingham Canal, in streets like Midland Avenue and Gregory Street, are subject to flood warnings and alerts 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 for a property on Southwold Drive, Nottingham, NG8 1PD, stated that the property is in an area which may be affected by Coal Mining activity. It is recommended that a Coal Mining report is obtained from the Coal Authority.
Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the Nottingham area mainly centre around the main road – A6005, Castle Blvd, impacting roads and streets such as Castle Wharlf and Peveril Drive.

NottinghamshireThe county of Nottinghamshire is based in the East Midlands and its principal town is Nottingham. The county's districts include Ashfield, Broxtowe, Bassetlaw, Mansfield, Newark, Gedling and Sherwood.

The county has two universities; the University of Nottingham and Nottingham Trent University. The former has been around since 1881 and is the largest university in Nottinghamshire and is one of the top 4 universities in the UK for the sum of research funds it receives.

There are a number of prominent football clubs in and around the county, including Nottingham Forest and Notts County, the latter of which is recognised as the oldest association football team in the world now playing at a professional level. 

Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club's home ground is Trent Bridge, also a Test Cricket ground. Notable alumni include Harold Larwood (England's principal strike bowler during the Bodyline series), Sir Gary Sobers and Sir Richard Hadlee.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A RICS Home Buyers Survey identifies many different defects or potential risks that can be found within a property and is an essential part of any home buying process.

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 buy your home.

If you are worried about any defects that you think your property in Nottingham has, we strongly recommend you get a Home Buyers Survey as the cost of remedying the problem might grow to many thousands of pounds as time progresses.

Does a surveyor report on signs of infestation?

A RICS surveyor will always highlight any signs or suspicions of infestations during their inspection of a property, whether this is the visible signs of droppings, jagged markings from insect tunnelling or burrowings.

The main culprits of infestation in property are rats and mice, woodworm and termites, dry/wet rot and Japanese Knotweed and surveyors will highlight signs of these to you over the phone or within their report and will always direct you to a specialist to ascertain the remedy for removal.
