Top tips for a Derby Home Buyers Survey

Derby is a city in Derbyshire County in the Midlands region of England and dates back to Roman times. It developed rapidly from being a market town in the Industrial Revolution.

There is a great variety of housing in and around the city, with more period survivals, for example Victorian terrace housing, to be found closer to the city centre.

Slum clearance in the 1920s and 1930s saw the central area of Derby become less heavily populated as families were rehoused on new council estates in the suburbs, where houses for private sale were also constructed.

Rehousing, council house building and private housing developments continued on a large scale for some 30 years after the end of World War II in 1945. Housing development has continued right up to the present time.

New build developments include detached houses in Darraway Gardens, Chellaston and Kedleston Road, Allestree and Station Road, Mickleover; semi-detached houses and terraces in Rykneld Road, Littleover and flats and apartments in Trinity Walk and Friar Gate.

Local Tip 1
Local Tip 2
Local Tip 3
Properties in Derby which are built in close proximity to the River Derwent, in streets such as Downing Road and Highfield Lane, are in areas where flood warnings and alerts are issued 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).
According to the UK Government's Public Health England, some areas of Derby, including streets such as Wilson Street and Babington Lane, are in a raised radon area, with properties built there having a higher probability than average of experiencing ground Radon emissions.

The raised Radon area has a maximum radon potential of 1-3% (the percentage is the chance of a property being built where Radon emissions might measure above the action level).

If you are concerned that a property you are buying is in an area of raised Radon, please click to visit Public Health England's UK Radon Map. Click also to find out more about Radon, Radon property searches and much more.
Noise pollution from roads in the Derby area is at its highest along the main ring road/A601/Ford Street/Lara Croft Way/Holmes Bridge/Eastgate and particularly around the interchange (Darwin Place/Exeter Place/The Underpass/Eastgate).

Noise pollution from railways accompanies the main railway line passing North – South and affecting nearby streets such as Dunton Close and Clarke Street. Therefore the highest noise levels are around where the railway crosses the road (Eastgate and The Underpass).

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