Top tips for a Cambridgeshire Home Buyers Survey


Cambridgeshire is a county in the East Anglia region of the UK and was formed in 1974 from two other pre-existing counties.

Peterborough and Cambridge contain the majority of the population of the county by far. The county hosts the site of Flag Fen in Fengate, which is one of the earliest-known Neolithic permanent settlements. Ely Cathedral dates back to 1083.

Housing in the larger urban areas is very mixed, with period properties as well as substantial housing from the 20th century, particularly semi-detached and terrace properties built from the 1930s onwards. In the more rural areas, there are more survivors from earlier periods.

Properties in Cambridgeshire which are built near to large water courses such as the River Cam and the River Great Ouse, or which are in the fen areas to the north of the county such as around Ramsey and Chatteris, 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).
In section G2 of the HomeBuyer Report, the surveyor makes comment about the Gas (if applicable).

The surveyor is not qualified to test the gas which is why the report states "Safety warning: All gas and oil appliances and equipment should regularly be inspected, tested, maintained and serviced by a registered ‘competent person’ and in line with the manufacturer’s instructions. This is important to make sure that the equipment is working correctly, to limit the risk of fire and carbon monoxide poisoning and to prevent carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases from leaking into the air. For more advice contact the Gas Safe Register for gas installations, and OFTEC for oil installations".
The construction principles consider the way in which a property supports vertical and lateral loads through its fabric. It therefore assesses whether the structural parts of the building i.e. walls, floors and roof, will provide adequate strength and rigidity at all times.

Although dwellings can be built in a number of different shapes and sizes, all must satisfy constructional principles which will ensure that the building does not fail when built or when reasonable loads are placed upon it.

When surveying a house it is not possible to check the foundations as the survey is non-intrusive and the seller is highly unlikely to allow several holes to be dug around their property to review the foundations; without cause to do so. The best that a Building surveyor can do is to note whether there are any signs of walls cracking or roof distortion etc. Foundation work can follow a variety of possible approaches ranging from simple concrete strip foundations to complex piling schemes with reinforced ground beams.

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