Properties built close to the River Colne in Colchester, in streets such as Colne Bank Avenue and St Paul's Road, are subject to flood alerts and warnings 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).
Properties in some areas of Colchester may be affected by overhead power lines or mobile phone masts.

A recent environmental search carried out for a property in London Road, Colchester CO6 1BJ revealed that there were overhead power lines or mobile phone masts located within 250m of the dwelling.

Overhead power lines and phone masts can be contentious and additionally may have a visual impact on the surrounding area.
Properties sometimes have issues with ground stability in certain locations in Colchester.

In a recent environmental search, taken out for a property in Shatters Road, Layer Breton, Colchester C02 0PY, the report noted that there was a moderate potential for natural ground instability within 50m of the property.

This should not be taken to mean that the property in question actually suffered/suffers from subsidence however as "active subsidence will be dependent on local conditions, such as the proximity of trees or areas where trees have been removed, which require an inspection of the site to identify the nature of the ground on which the property is built."

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