Top tips for a Chelmsford Home Buyers Survey


Chelmsford was built near the site of the old Roman road from London to Colchester (now the A12) and its city centre has mainly Victorian and Edwardian homes of varying sizes. Moulsham has many examples of smaller Victorian terrace houses.

The city has been growing larger since the 1970s and this has brought about new settlements in the locale such as Chancellor Park, Beaulieu Park and Chelmer Village. Beaulieu Park has some very large modern detached houses.

There are many period houses in the surrounding villages of Little Baddow, Danbury, Writtle and Galleywood.

There are 3,600 new homes planned to be built around Beaulieu Park and shared ownership is available in Mary Munnion Quarter, for example.

Properties in Chelmsford which are built near to the Rivers Chelmer and Can, such as in Seventh Avenue and Beachs Drive, 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).
Section I3 of the HomeBuyer Report reports on Other Matters to be answered by the client's solicitor. These can vary from information relating to the lease term to information about service charges.

In a HomeBuyer Report in Wickham crescent ,Chelmsford, CM1 4WD it stated "Your legal adviser should confirm that the property is leasehold. We understand that the remaining term on the lease is approximately 800 years. Your legal adviser should confirm if there are any current or future repairs which are planned explain your liability as a lessee for the repair and maintenance of the communal areas. Your legal adviser should also confirm that the maintenance/service charge is £575 payable biannually, that the ground rent is £25pa as well as your rights and liabilities in respect of the allocated parking".
Section J3 of the HomeBuyer Report sets out any Risks to People in the property.

An example of the type of risk stated here is "Due to the age of the property it is highly unlikely that there will be asbestos present in the textured ceiling finishes due to it being phased out by the time of construction. However, due to the small chance that ‘old stock’ may have been used it would be prudent to have a sample laboratory tested prior to sanding, cutting or drilling the textured finishes".

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 Chelmsford 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
