Top tips for a Perry Barr Home Buyers Survey


The current Perry Barr railway station is on the site of the Grand Junction Railway opened in 1837. It is the oldest station on its original site and is one of the oldest continually-operated station sites in the world. It came the station it is today in the 1960s.

The population of the town increased with the arrival of the railway in the 1800s. This means there are many Victorian properties within the area such as the semi-detached houses on Somerset Road and the converted Victorian buildings (into apartments) on Hill Lane.

New properties in Perry Barr include that of the flats available on Walsall Road (Avix Apartments) and many other new developments in Birmingham such as St Martins Place.

The River Tame runs through Perry Barr which mean properties near the river may be subject to flood alerts from time to time. This includes Teddington Grove and Crantock Road. The Perry Hall Park is a flood storage area.

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).
The M6 causes raised levels of noise pollution for most of Perry Barr including Dewsbury Grove and Longstone Road. Dual carriageways also contribute to noise pollution for Sandringham Road, Earlsbury Gardens and Willmore Road. The railway line causes noise pollution for Village Road, Romulus Close and Wellhead Lane.
According to a recent environmental search for a property on Newall Street in Birmingham claimed the porperty was within 2km of the High Speed 2 Rail Link. Trains along this route will operate at speeds of 250mph and could have an impact on surrouding areas including Perry Barr.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

Our RICS Surveyor, during a Home Buyers Survey, inspects both the inside and the outside of your property and searches in particular for subsidence, damp, infestations and any cracks or other damage to the property.

The procedure is non-intrusive. It is highly recommended that you get one, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, if you are thinking of buying a property in Perry Barr.

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.

If the Home Buyers Survey flags up any of these defects in your property in Perry Barr 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 has any other defects then you MUST get a RICS 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.

You can find a local RICS surveyor by using the search at the bottom RHS of this page.

Is a mortgage valuation a Building Survey?

Mortgage lenders in England and Wales require you to get a valuation for the property in Perry Barr you are buying so that they can gauge whether the amount you are paying is appropriate. This survey is called a Mortgage Valuation. The mortgage valuation is paid for by you but the results aren't always shared with you as the survey actually belongs to the lender. Furthermore, it doesn't include any survey into potential defects or structural issues that are too often found in properties.

There is also a degree of confusion because the mortgage valuation is referred to as a survey and a large number of buyers assume this is what is meant by 'have you done your survey?' It is important that when buying a property in Perry Barr that you arrange your own HomeBuyers survey that reports on defects or potential issues a property has; either a HomeBuyers Report or a Building Survey. Buying without a survey could leave you having to pay out money for any repair costs or defects that you didn't spot. Defects such as rising damp can cost thousands to repair and would affect your future sale price if not corrected.


The average cost for HomeBuyers for fixing works to their property after purchase is just under £2,000, and when some defects affect the resale value of your home, getting an independent HomeBuyers Survey makes a lot of sense, financial and otherwise. Call us on 0121 285 2938 to get the best HomeBuyers Survey for your property in Perry Barr.
