Top tips for a Wiltshire Home Buyers Survey


Wiltshire has always been known for its historical buildings and large family homes. Nowadays though There are a number of new developments being built on Calne Road, Lyneham and Devizes Road, Hilperton. Whilst these new properties are coming to market, the average house price is still high which means first time buyers may struggle buying to get their foot on the ladder unless they move away from the major towns and cities.

Wiltshire properties are built on chalk, a kind of soft, white, porous limestone that is resistant to erosion. This reduces the chances of the property subsiding like seen with clay soil. You can learn more about movement and subsidence here What is subsidence.
Surface water flooding can be found in Corsham and Westbury. Whilst this may not cause you concern it is advisable to get a flood report to check if your property is insurable and at what cost. Read more on surface water flooding.

WiltshireWiltshire is a county in South West England and its county town is Trowbridge. It has high downland and wide valleys and is arguably most notable for the Stonehenge and Avebury ancient stone circles found on Salisbury Plain. It also contains a number of well known country houses including Longleat and Stourhead. The landlocked county borders Dorset, Hampshire, Oxfordshire, Somerset, Gloucestershire and Berkshire.

Originally Wiltshire's county town was Wilton but the county council is now based in Trowbridge. Salisbury is the county's only city although Swindon, which has five times as many people as Salisbury (around 210,000), is its most populated built-up area.

The M4 is the one motorway going through the county and the main transport hub is Swindon, which has regular direct trains to London Paddington and other major conurbations. The nearest major airport is Southampton.

There are three universities in Wiltshire, all located in Swindon. These are; Cranfield University, a postgraduate-only institution, which has strong links with industry and the business world; the University of the West of England and the University of Bath in Swindon.

Wiltshire has many attractions, some of which are very quirky, including Burlington, a huge nuclear bunker which can accommodate 4,000 people, Longleat Safari Park, the Kennet & Avon Canal Museum in Devizes, the Swindon and Cricklade Railway and Salisbury Cathedral.

Swindon also hosts the Magic Roundabout, which has been voted the UK's scariest road junction.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

When you get a mortgage for your property in Wiltshire your mortgage lender requires you to pay for a mortgage valuation survey of the property. The aim of this survey is to give the mortgage lender reassurance that the property is worth what you are paying. Although you pay for the mortgage valuation survey, it belongs to the mortgage lender and often you won't be allowed to see it.

It is paramount that when buying a property you get your own HomeBuyers Survey that reports on defects or potential issues with the property; either a HomeBuyers Report or a Building Survey. Buying without a survey could leave you exposed to any repair costs or defects that you didn't spot. Defects such as subsidence can cost thousands to repair and would affect your future sale price if not repaired.


A HomeBuyer Survey will give you reassurance to buy your new home without worrying about what is in the closet. If you aren't sure what you should do or which HomeBuyer Survey to get call us and we'll talk you through the options - this is what we do!
