Top tips for a Bath Home Buyers Survey


Bath has some of the finest architecture in England, from the Roman Baths, to Pulteney Bridge (based on an unused design for the Rialto Bridge) to Bath Abbey, founded in 1499 on the site of an 8th century church.

Georgian architecture, which is the predominant type in Bath (particularly Palladian revival style) can be seen in the Royal Cresent (1770) and The Circus (1760) and many of the city's buildings are constructed of golden coloured Bath Stone.

Bath was bombed during the 2nd world war leading to much development post-war: the villages of Combe Down, Tiverton and Weston were built in the 1950s and much of the construction was by the council, such as the Whiteway estate.

There are plenty of 1930s and later semi-detached houses, such as you find in, for example, Stirtingale Avenue and Penn Lea Road. 

There are a number of new developments in and around the city, including, for example, Bath Riverside in Victorian Bridge Road along the banks of the Avon – a modern, purpose built medium-rise block offering studios and larger sized flats up to 4 bedrooms.

Properties in Bath built very close to the River Avon, such as in St John's Road and Cork Street, are subject to flood warnings and alerts 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).
According to the UK Government's Public Health England, some parts of Bath, including streets such as Lower Oldfield Park and Hayesfield Park, are in a raised radon area, with properties built there having a higher probability than average of experiencing ground Radon emissions.

The raised Radon area has a maximum radon potential of greater than 30% (the percentage is the chance of a property being built where Radon emissions might measure above the action level).

If you are concerned that a property you are buying is in an area of raised Radon, please click to visit Public Health England's UK Radon Map. Click also to find out more about Radon, Radon property searches and much more.
Properties in some areas of Bath may be affected by environmental constraints.

A recent environmental search carried out for a property in Stirtingale Avenue, Bath BA2 2NQ revealed that the property was within 250m of an area likely to be impacted by environmental constraints. These included the designated World Heritage Site of the City of Bath.

Areas which have been designated as having environmental or historical importance may impose constraints on property or land developments or alterations.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A Home Buyers Survey is completed by a qualified RICS surveyor and delivers a visual inspection of the property in Bath and the surrounding garden. The aim of the survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is to identify potential risks or defects that you may not know are there such as cracks or damage to the structure of the property, subsidence, damp and infestations.

Level 2 HomeBuyer Report with a Valuation

A HomeBuyer Report, also known as a Home Buyers Survey, is generally suitable for:

  • Bungalows
  • Flats
  • Standard construction houses

The majority of Bath's leasehold flats require only a RICS HomeBuyer Report but for any Victorian conversions, a Building Survey may well be required.
