Top tips for a Blackburn Home Buyers Survey


Blackburn's architecture is predominantly from the modern as well as the Victorian era – it was during the latter period, particularly with the arrival of the railway, that the population and number of houses grew – there are odd survivals from earlier periods but the town has also been considerably developed in many places at many times.

The Victorian residential properties are most commonly terraced houses and cottages and properties from the 20th century consist of mainly standard construction terraced houses, semi-detached and detached properties, with council as well as private estates.

Notable edifices include Blackburn Cathedral, reconsecrated in 1826 on the site of a previous church which stood for hundreds of years; Ewood Park, which opened in 1882; the town hall, built in Italian Renaissance style in 1856; the Technical School, completed in 1894 (Northern Renaissance style); Thwaites Brewery, built in 1870 and the Grade II listed art deco Waterloo Pavilions. There are many new build developments.

Some properties in Blackburn may be sited in close proximity to current or previous mining works, which can present ground stability and other issues. A recent Environmental Search taken out for a property in Garnett Street, Darwen, Blackburn BB3 3DT recently, revealed that the property was located within 25m of a coal mining affected area. The report recommended taking out a Coal Minin Report, an additional search, which can provide more comprehensive information.
A recent Local Authority Search taken out for a property in Duke Street, Colne, Blackburn BB8 0SU revealed that the property was within a Development Framework Boundary, a Settlement Boundary and a Smoke Control Zone. Knowing these facts is material concerning your specific requirements from a property to buy and for your property lawyer.
Parish church claims on parishioners for chancel repair, where these occur, can be fairly costly, with individual households possibly being legally required to pay £1,000s.

Buying a chancel repair indemnity insurance policy for a property you're looking to buy is an easy and efficient way of protecting yourself against this possible eventuality and among many others, one such policy was taken out for a property in Waterloo Road, Ashton-under-Ribble, Preston PR2 1BH. This policy generally costs around £20 to buy and normally covers the policy holder for claims to the limit of £1 million.

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