Top tips for a Harpenden Home Buyers Survey


Harpenden is a prosperous town in Hertfordshire which was essentially a village until the railway arrived in 1860. You can find large Victorian houses and Victorian terraces from the late 19th century. Rothamsted Manor was a substantial manor house by 1525 although it was redesigned in the Dutch style in the 17th century.

Many of the town's properties were built in the 20th century in various eras and there are large detached houses as well as many semi-detached properties, some built comparatively recently.

You can find large detached new builds in Green Lane Close and Help to Buy is available in the new flat developments in Lower Luton Road.

Properties in Harpenden which are built near the River Lea, such as in Lower Luton 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).
When a RICS surveyor inspects a property they do not test the electrics, however they will turn on and off the lights and confirm where the fuse box is in the property. Electrical issues can occur in properties that date older than 1970 as the electrical methods used in properties has evolved over time. This is why a surveyor will recommend that you consult a local electrical contractor if they feel it necessary.

A local electrician in Harpenden is Andrews Electrical Contractors, Old Batford Mill, Lower Luton Rd, Harpenden AL5 5BZ.
Checking the gas boiler is something a RICS surveyor can do by turning on the hot water and the heating, however they are not gas engineers so cannot test the boiler. 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 G A plumbing & heating, 26 Woollam Cres, St Albans AL3 6EH.
