Some properties in Wells are located nearby to areas to be explored for their energy potential by the oil & gas industry – they must be licensed by the Oil and Gas Authority – and such exploration includes areas subject to hydraulic fracturing ("fracking") investigation.

A recent environmental search carried out for a property in Windsor Crescent, BA11 2EA for example, flagged up that the property was built within 4km of an area that has been offered for licensing for onshore energy exploration and/or extraction.
Some properties in Wells are located nearby to existing or proposed sites for solar farms.

A recent environmental search carried out for a property in Waterworks Road, BA14 0AL for example, flagged up that the property was built within 2km of existing or proposed solar farms.

The location of wind farms or turbines can be contentious due to visual impact.

SomersetSomerset is a county in south-west England and is mainly rural with rolling hills. These include the Mendips, the Quantocks, Exmoor National Park and the Blackdown Hills, all of which are well worth a leisurely visit. Somerset is synonymous with cider and scrumpy, particularly in the Taunton area.

The county is made up from seven districts; South Somerset, Taunton Deane, West Somerset, Sedgemoor, Mendip, Bath and North East Somerset and North Somerset. The county town is Taunton and the county also contains the beautiful city of Bath (which is its own administrative authority), with its celebrated Roman remains and excellent architecture. Adjacent counties include Gloucestershire, Bristol, Wiltshire, Dorset and Devon.

There are 3 universities in the ceremonial county; these are the University of Bath, Bath Spa University and the University of the West of England. The nearest airport is in Bristol and the M5 is the one motorway going through the county.

Other excellent places to visit there include Cheddar Gorge (yes, Cheddar cheese does come from here, invented by accident around 800 years ago!), Wookey Hole Caves and Glastonbury Tor.

The Glastonbury Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts takes place most years in Pilton, near Shepton Mallet, attracting over 170,000 music and culture lovers from around the world to see world-famous entertainers.

Yeovil Town is in the Football League and Somerset County Cricket Club play at Taunton. The team used to include Ian Botham, Viv Richards and Joel Garner among other top stars of the cricket world.

Tarr Steps near Winsford in Somerset is thought to date from around 1000 BC and is the oldest bridge in Britain still in use – there is no concrete joining the stones which make up its fabric!

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 Wells.

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.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

Many mistakenly think that a mortgage valuation is the same as a HomeBuyers Survey and the consequence is that home buyers can subsequently have to shell out money for repairing faults and defects that could well have been part of the bargaining process with the seller on purchase. The surveyor appointed by the lender conducts a mortgage valuation to estimate the value of the property: this survey is not concerned with detailing structural defects.


A HomeBuyers Survey lists and reports on defects and includes a full appraisal and valuation of your property in Wells which is completely independent of the mortgage lender. This knowledge can be used to get quotes for the cost of fixing defects and, most importantly, gives you evidence which can be used to bargain with the seller about sharing any such cost.
