Top tips for a Braintree Home Buyers Survey


Braintree has many Victorian properties which were built when people moved into the area in large numbers on the back of the success of its silk manufacturing in the 19th century in which the town developed largely into the town we see today. Victorian town houses and other terrace houses can be found on Mary Ruck Way and Church Street. Larger properties from this era are situated on Sunnyside and Harold Road. There are also large Edwardian terrace properties on Grenville Road and New London Road.

New developments in and around the town include those in Notley Grange which has two to five bedroom houses. There are other new builds dotted around the town including those in Panfield and on Coggeshall Road in Ushers Meadow.

There are two rivers running through Braintree - the River Brain and the River Blackwater. Because of this, properties in Braintree may be subject to flood alerts every so often. Properties such as these include those on St. Johns Avenue and Mill Park Drive, both by the River Brain, as well as River Mead and Blackwater Way, both by the River Blackwater.

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).
Braintree is in an area of raised noise pollution because of th dual carriageways within the town. Streets near these larger roads such as Goldingham Drive, Meadow Park and Bridport Way may be affected.
A recent environmental search carried out for a property in Witham, which is a nearby town, showed there was a moderate potential for ground instability within 50m of the property. The survey claimed subsidence will be dependent on local conditions, so this could also be and issue for Braintree.

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