Top tips for a Peterborough Home Buyers Survey


Peterborough is a city in Cambridgeshire with a cathedral mainly built between 1118 and 1237. It is in a flat area with some parts below sea level. When the railways arrived in the 1840s, its population – and housing – expanded significantly.

The city was associated with brick-making, particularly of Fletton Brick, which can be seen for example in the present HM Prison Peterborough.

You can find gorgeous Georgian detached properties in the Northborough area and Victorian terraces in Eastfield Road and Victorian townhouses in West Water Crescent. There are plenty of standard interwar semi-detached houses in the Princes Garden area (some of them with large rear extensions.

There has been considerable development of the town since the 1970s until the present day. This has resulted in new 'townships' being built including Bretton, Orton, Paston/Werrington and Hampton (which has most recently been built). Shared ownership is commonly available.

Survey Tip 3

Properties in Peterborough which are built close to the River Nene or in the fens to the east such as Flag Fen and Prior's, in roads such as Wistow Way and Bailey Way, 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).
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 for a property in Morris Street Peterborough PE1 5DX, stated that the dwelling was within 4km of existing or proposed wind farms or wind turbines.
A recent Environmental Search for a property in Morris Street Peterborough PE1 5DX, stated that the dwelling was within 50m of an area with potential for natural ground instability.

The British Geological Survey has assessed the area of search as having moderate potential for natural ground instability. This does not necessarily mean there is cause for concern in terms of the property's stability. Active subsidence will be dependent on local conditions, such as the proximity of trees or areas where trees have been removed, which require an inspection of the site to identify the nature of the ground on which the property is built. A house buyers survey is advised to look for signs of property damage that may indicate poor natural ground conditions.

EssexEssex is not only a coastal county (the North Sea is to its east) but a home county because it touches Greater London on its eastern borders. Its settlements vary from Colchester, which is very historical and used to be the capital of England as Camulodunum, to Southend, a seaside resort, to Basildon, which is a comparatively modern urban development. The western side of Essex hosts many London workers and there are fast rail links to, for example, Shenfield from London Liverpool Street which aid many city workers.

Essex's county town is Chelmsford (and is the county's only city), where Essex County Cricket Club are based. Essex hosts Stansted Airport and attractions such as the Lakeside Shopping Centre, near Thurrock and Epping Forest, a popular forest for camping and other activities. A large proportion of Essex's boundaries are water (the River Thames and the North Sea), the remainder includes Greater London, Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Suffolk. Kent is across the River Thames to the south.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A Home Buyers Survey is a visual inspection of the grounds and the internal/external structure of the property and identifies defects such as cracks or damage to the structure of the property, subsidence, damp and infestations.

Some of these defects you may not even see or know what to look for which makes getting a Home Buyers Survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, if you are considering buying a property in Peterborough, incredibly important.

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.

The Home Buyer Survey will report on issues found, however you need to make sure that you choose the right Home Buyer Survey for your property because some defects require further detail and this is best served by booking a Building Survey.

Does the RICS Level 3 Building Survey include advice on extension works?

The RICS Building Survey report is a detailed defect report based on a visual inspection carried out by a Chartered Surveyor. The report is detailed and often includes photographs and a list itemising any defects identified with comment on any recommendations for remedial works or further investigations by specialists if required.

Advice on future works does not form part of the report but most surveyors are happy to provide their expert opinion on whether proposed works are possible. They may look at the position of manhole covers, height of the roof in the loft space, the floor joists in the loft space, and other structural indicators which would impede any proposed plans. This falls outside of the written report and any communications are usually provided on site or on the phone post inspection.

We would always recommend that you notify the surveyor that you might want to discuss proposed works with him, prior to the survey so he can ensure he takes this into account when completing his inspection.
