Top tips for a Bishop's Stortford Home Buyers Survey


Bishop's Stortford is an ancient market town in Hertfordshire and dates back to Saxon times and beyond.

Its architecture reflects its history with period cottages, Victorian and Edwardian terraces, such as can be found around Maple Avenue, Chantry Road, Avenue Road and Dane O’Coys Road, and more modern houses, such as the detached houses which can be seen in the Bishop's Park and St Michael's Mead developments.

More than 3,000 new homes are scheduled to be built in the coming years, with many in the Bishop's Stortford North development. Birchwood Mews in Parsonage Lane, Hockerill, has been converted from a Tudor-style Edwardian mansion into 12 flats, plus five executive houses and five townhouses.

Properties in Bishop's Stortford which are built in the vicinity of the River Stort, in roads such as Dell Lane and Braziers Quay, 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).
Properties in some areas of Bishop's Stortford may be affected by environmental constraints.

A recent environmental search carried out for a property in Stansted Road revealed that the property was within 250m of an area likely to be impacted by environmental constraints. These included Ancient Woodland - Alsa Wood.

Areas which have been designated as having environmental or historical importance may impose constraints on property or land developments or alterations.
Properties sometimes have issues with ground stability in certain locations in Bishop's Stortford.

In a recent environmental search, taken out for a property in Shortcroft, the report noted that there was a moderate potential for natural ground instability within 50m of the property.

This should not be taken to mean that the property in question actually suffered/suffers from subsidence however as "active subsidence will be dependent on local conditions, such as the proximity of trees or areas where trees have been removed, which require an inspection of the site to identify the nature of the ground on which the property is built."
