Top tips for a Stevenage Home Buyers Survey


Stevenage is a new town in Hertfordshire where the large modern development dates back to the late 1940s, however it was a village, along with others near it, in its own right prior to that but there are few period survivors in property terms, and those tend to be in the older surrounding villages and the old town, such as the detached Victorian properties in Hitchin Road and Southwold, Symonds Green and in Tatlers Lane.

Properties in the new town have therefore nearly all been built in the latter half of the 20th century. There are 1960s brutalist-style high-rise blocks such as Southgate House but much of the housing in the new estates is low-rise apartments or terrace housing, such as you find in Mendip Way or around Great Ashby or Longfields.

New build developments include the detached houses in Marlborough Road and off Broad Oak Way and flats, for example George House in Primett Road.

Survey Tip 3

Properties in Stevenage which are built in close proximity to the River Beane, in streets such as Benington Road and Ford Lane, are in an area 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).
When a surveyor carries out a RICS home buyers survey, they may report suspicions of infestation. They may advise that a qualified pest control company comes to the property to sort out the problem.

A local pest control company operating within the Stevenage area is E.R.D Pest Control Services, 8 Unwin Rd, Stevenage SG2 9SX.
Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the Stevenage area mainly centre around the main road – A1, also affecting nearby streets and roads such as Gunnels Wood Road and Knebworth Park.

HertfordshireHertfordshire is commonly abbreviated to the name Herts and is a county located in the south of England. it is bordered by Bedfordshire to the north, Cambridgeshire to the north-east, Essex to the east, Buckinghamshire to the west and Greater London to the south (it is classed as a 'Home County' for this reason). The county town of Hertfordshire is Hertford.

Hertfordshire has 3 motorways running through it - the M1, the M25 and the A1(M). It is particularly associated with new towns as it contains 5 in total: Stevenage, Welwyn Garden City, Hemel Hempstead, Hatfield and Letchworth. There are two airports just outside Hertfordshire's borders; Luton and Stansted. It also has a university, the University of Hertfordshire, which is in Hatfield. There are a number of independent schools in the area, including, for example, Haileybury (Turnford), St George's Harpenden, Haberdasher's Aske's (Elstree) and Berkhamsted.

For random facts; St Alban, who gave his name to the city in the county, was the earliest British saint - he was reputed to have been beheaded where the cathedral now stands; also Sele Mill near Hertford was the site of the first paper mill in Britain, established about 1488.

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 Stevenage.

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 shows up any such problems, our appointed surveyor will explain to you what you should do to get more in-depth information about the type and scope of the matter and what is required to fix it. 

If you are worried about any defects that you think your property in Stevenage 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.

How long does a RICS Building Survey take?

RICS Surveyors often only have one or two inspections a day to ensure they allocate adequate time to assess a property for its defects and issues.

On average our surveyors will spend two to three hours on a standard sized home to complete the full Level 3 RICS Building Survey, however, this can vary for a number of reasons.

It may be that there has been major works done to the property or a major defect is discovered and requires further investigation or access to all areas of the property is not immediately available. This is why our surveyors do not operate with time constraints – they stay on site as long as they need to complete the full inspection.
