Properties in some areas of Wisbech may be affected by surface water flooding. A recent Environmental Search taken out for a property in Roman Bank, Leverington, Wisbech PE13 5A revealed that there was a potential risk of surface water flooding within 250m of the property.


Surface water flooding results from rainfall running over ground before entering a watercourse or river and is particularly prevalent in fenland areas such as where Wisbech is situated. If you are buying a property with a mortgage, when your main property searches are returned, they may advise that you get an additional Flood Risk Report (click to find out more).
Some properties in the Wisbech area may be subject to Development Plans. A recent Local Authority Search for a property in Roman Bank, Leverington, Wisbech PE13 5AR revealed that it was built in close proximity to a planning designation for two flood zones.

Noise pollution from roads in the Wisbech area is at its highest around the A47 and A1101 main roads affecting nearby streets such as Basin Road and Lynn Road.

CambridgeshireCambridgeshire is a county in East Anglia and Cambridge is its county town. It has large areas of very low-lying land, known as fenland. Its economy is predominantly agricultural although a large area surrounding Cambridge is concerned with high technology (computing, electronics and biochemistry) and is known as Silicon Fen.

There are two universities in the county; the University of Cambridge, which is the second oldest university in the English-speaking world, and the Angela Ruskin University. Cambridge also hosts a regional centre of the Open University. Cambridge is very much the transport hub of the region; its railway station offers connections to many urban destinations and fast, direct services to London. The A10 runs through the city and the M11 runs nearby to it.

Ely Cathedral contains the only Gothic Dome in the world and Holme Fen to the south of Peterborough is the lowest point in Britain (2.75m below sea level). Catherine of Aragon is buried in Peterborough Cathedral.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

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

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 Wisbech 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.

My estate agent told me I don’t need a survey

Fortunately we only come across this on occasion. As we know, English Law puts the emphasis on the buyer in a conveyancing transaction to complete all reasonable checks on the property prior to exchange.

This is explained by the legal term caveat emptor  which is the principle that the buyer alone is responsible for checking the quality and suitability of goods before a purchase is made.

Although the estate agent’s intentions may be pure in advising against a survey, in the event of a buyer moving into a property and finding that there are defects that would have been identified in the simplest of RICS surveyor checks, there is no recourse to the estate agent after the fact.

If the surveyor does not identify any significant defects, then the buyer can complete the purchase with peace of mind, however if defects are identified then an informed decision can be made on whether to proceed with the purchase prior to being contractually tied in.

A survey does also on occasion provide an opportunity to renegotiate on price based on newly identified problems not spotted on first inspection.

An estate agent is paid on completion as is the vendor therefore their drivers for additional property checks are very different to those of the buyers’.
