Top tips for a Clacton on Sea Home Buyers Survey

Clacton-on-Sea was founded in 1871 as a seaside resort and housing developed there mostly in the 20th century after London Road was built to cope with increased numbers in the 1920s. St John's Church is its oldest building; its nave dates to 1050 and it has been altered at various times in various places since then.

Clacton's popularity as a resort hit its peak between the 1950s and 1980s. Predominantly housing is semi-detached and terraced, built in various times in the 20th century, and there has been considerable redevelopment as can be seen by the modern buildings in the high street.

There are also a fair few detached properties, from moderate sizes to considerably grander, and bungalows, both detached and semi-detached, such as can be seen in Nightingale Way. You also find park homes, for example as can be seen in Jaywick Lane.

Dwellings in some of the land to the immediate southwest of Clacton and to its north east, such as in roads like Fleetwood Avenue and Pickers Way, are subject to flood warnings and alerts from time to time. There are many water courses in these areas, their sources derived from brooks like the Tendring Brook and the Weeley Brook and there are also a number of creeks.

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).
Some properties in Clacton-on-Sea are located nearby to existing or proposed sites for wind farms or wind turbines.

A recent environmental search carried out for a property in Knox Road, Clacton-on-Sea CO15 3SL, for example, flagged up that the property was built within 4km of existing or proposed wind farms or turbines.

The location of wind farms or turbines can be contentious due to visual and auditory impact.
A recent Environmental Search for a property in Olivers Close, Clacton-on-Sea CO15 3QX noted that there was a moderate potential for natural ground instability in the area within 50m of the property.

This finding did not necessarily mean that there was a cause for concern in terms of the property's stability: active subsidence depends on local conditions such as the proximity of trees. A house buyers survey is advised to look for signs of property damage that may indicate poor natural ground conditions.

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 Clacton on Sea 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:
