Top tips for a Blackpool Home Buyers Survey


Blackpool's architectural history in the main only dates back to around the mid-18th century when the original hamlet expanded gradually into a fashionable seaside resort. St John's Church, for example, was consecrated in 1821, the North Pier was completed in 1863, the Central Pier was finished in 1868 and the South Pier in 1893. The Winter Gardens complex opened in 1878 and the Opera House in 1888. Blackpool Tower, opened in 1894.

The Grand Theatre was designed by Victorian theatre architect Frank Matcham and was opened in 1894. It was the first theatre of Matcham's to use an innovative 'cantilever' design to support the tiers, thereby reducing the need for the usual pillars and so allowing clear views of the stage from all parts of the auditorium.

Curiously documents suggest Hitler diverted heavy bombing away from Blackpool because he favoured it as a resort in the event that Germany successfully invaded the country. In recent years, there has been a reasonable amount of new building and regeneration and in the latter case, work was completed in July 2009 on Waterloo Road in South Shore that transformed the area into a modern shopping centre.

The Local Authority Property Conveyancing Search is key in identifying any land charges which might affect a property you're considering buying. A recent such report bought for a property in Queens Promenade, Bispham, Blackpool FY2 9LW revealed that while there were no planning entries lodged with the local council since August 1977, the dwelling was listed as being within an area that would be affected by the Blackpool Tramway Extension.

This finding might in the short term mean disruption due to construction works (noise, diversions etc.) however in the medium term these kind of developments can often encourage an uplift in local property prices. Your conveyancing solicitor once provided with information of this nature can make further enquiries to satisfy any concerns you might have.
Your Environmental Search Report is excellent for summarising whether a property you're considering buying might be affected by a variety of environmental issues including contaminated land, flooding, ground stability and radon among other matters.

A 'live' report bought for a property a client was considering buying in Marsden Road Blackpool FY4 3DT revealed, for example, that although there were no ground stability and radon issues known about which might affect the dwelling, there was a risk of coastal flooding within 25m and risk of surface water flooding within 25 – 250m. there were potentially contaminative activities listed as being within 250 – 500m of the property and additionally, the property was within 4km of an area that had been offered for licensing for the onshore exploration of oil and gas.

These kind of findings can, at the very least, have implications for your buildings insurance and your conveyancing solicitor can raise further enquiries about these matters to satisfy any further queries you might have.
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 Highgate Avenue, Fulwood, Preston PR2 8LL, in the same broad locale as Blackpool. 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 Blackpool 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 Blackpool's leasehold flats require only a RICS HomeBuyer Report but for any Victorian conversions, a Building Survey may well be required.
