A tributary of the River Blythe runs through Solihull which means some properties may be subject to flood alerts from time to time. This includes streets such as Ladbrook Road, Alderwood Place and Blytheway.

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 M42 causes a raised level of noise pollution for a large part of Solihull including Widney Lane, Smiths Lane and Frankholmes Drive. The two dual carriageways sandwiching the town, the A41 and the A34 (Stratford Road) also have an impact on Thornton Road, Highlands street and Hampton Lane.

A property on Widney Road in Solihull was reported to have a potenial risk of subsidence. This means it could be a risk for other properties in Solihull as subsidence is to do with ground stability and can affect movement of a property's foundation.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

Our RICS Surveyor, during a Home Buyers Survey in Solihull, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, 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.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

When you purchase a home in Solihull using a mortgage your Mortgage Lender will require you to get a mortgage valuation to assess how much your property is actually worth. You have to pay for this survey and often you may assume this is also a structural assessment to identify defects. Unfortunately the mortgage valuation is just for the mortgage lender which means you need to get your own independent survey of the property to make sure there aren't any defects.

There is some confusion as the mortgage valuation is often referred to as a survey and so many buyers assume this is what is meant by 'have you done your survey?' It is important that when buying a property in Solihull you arrange your own HomeBuyers Survey that reports on defects or potential issues with the property. The two types of HomeBuyers Survey to choose from are the HomeBuyers Report or the Building Survey. Buying without a survey could leave you exposed to any repair costs or defects that you didn't spot. The costs of underpinning a property due to subsidence run into the £10,000s so it is important to get a survey to check for this type of defect particularly.
