Top tips for a Cheshunt Home Buyers Survey


Cheshunt is on the north edges of Greater London and was a settlement on Ermine Street, the main Roman road leading north from London. St Mary the Virgin parish church was built between 1418 and 1448 (a rebuild from 300 years or so before that).

There are properties from various eras in the town, including the Georgian and Victorian, but most of the homes were built in the 20th century and there was considerable development in the late 1960s and after, when estates such as Rosedale were created. Rosedale has many terrace houses.

You can find bungalows in Longfield Lane (detached and semi-detached) and large modern detached houses in Rags Lane. Sovereign Gate in Andrew's Lane is one example of where shared ownership has been offered on 2 and 3-bedroom modern family homes.

Properties in Cheshunt which are built near to the River Lea, the New River and Nags Brook, such as in Brookfield Lane West and Whitefields Road, 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).
A RICS surveyor doesn't test the boiler, however they do check to see if the boiler is on by using the hot water and by turning on the shower. You should always obtain the boiler installation certificate and the maintenance details from the seller during the conveyancing process.

If you need the gas checking, a local gas engineer in Harpenden is R & P Gibbs Ltd, 231 Turners Hill, Cheshunt, Waltham Cross EN8 9DG.
An Environmental Report will flag the potential for Contaminative Activities - this is something a surveyor will not report to you on.

In a recent search of Cranleigh Close, Cheshunt, Waltham Cross, Hertfordshire, EN7 6HH it stated that Thames Water Utilities Ltd completed surface water discharge within 275m of the property.

HertfordshireHertfordshire is commonly abbreviated to the name Herts and is a county located in the south of England. it is bordered by Bedfordshire to the north, Cambridgeshire to the north-east, Essex to the east, Buckinghamshire to the west and Greater London to the south (it is classed as a 'Home County' for this reason). The county town of Hertfordshire is Hertford.

Hertfordshire has 3 motorways running through it - the M1, the M25 and the A1(M). It is particularly associated with new towns as it contains 5 in total: Stevenage, Welwyn Garden City, Hemel Hempstead, Hatfield and Letchworth. There are two airports just outside Hertfordshire's borders; Luton and Stansted. It also has a university, the University of Hertfordshire, which is in Hatfield. There are a number of independent schools in the area, including, for example, Haileybury (Turnford), St George's Harpenden, Haberdasher's Aske's (Elstree) and Berkhamsted.

For random facts; St Alban, who gave his name to the city in the county, was the earliest British saint - he was reputed to have been beheaded where the cathedral now stands; also Sele Mill near Hertford was the site of the first paper mill in Britain, established about 1488.

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 Cheshunt 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.

NB If you're a first time buyer, you might wish to click on What is a House Survey to find out more, including what happens during the inspection.

If the HomeBuyers Survey flags up any of these defects in your property in Cheshunt then our surveyor explains what you need to do to get further advice on how to investigate them and get It resolved.

If you are concerned about your property has subsidence, or any other defects then you MUST get a HomeBuyers Survey as the costs for repairing the defects can run into thousands of pounds.

If you can identify the defect before you purchase then you can get quotes for fixing it and either share the costs with the seller, or, in worst case examples, choose not to proceed.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

Any number of people have been understandably confused between a mortgage valuation and a HomeBuyers Survey.

Your lender conducts its own valuation on the property in Cheshunt you intend to buy to check that it is lending you the right sum of money in relation to the property's value. It is not intended to examine any defects the property may have.

When you book a HomeBuyers Survey from us, as well as receiving an independent valuation of the property you wish to buy, the primary focus is to establish whether the property has any defects which you should know about, for example rising damp or subsidence, which might, particularly as time passes, end up requiring even tens of thousands of pounds to put right.

This knowledge is naturally of great use to you, given how much you are intending to spend.

You might, on the strength of the information, provided, negotiate with the seller to contribute towards the costs of repairing the defects or even pull out buying the property entirely.


Most importantly, any HomeBuyers Survey is squarely for your benefit and is independent of both your lender - if you are buying with a mortgage - and your vendor. Call 0333 344 3234 to get yours and to help your peace of mind.
