Top tips for a Letchworth Home Buyers Survey


Letchworth, or Letchworth Garden City, is a Hertfordshire town and one of the world's first new towns and the first garden city. Its parish church of St Mary the Virgin was built in the 12th or 13th Century and it was a very small parish right up to the beginning of the 20th century.

A railway station opened in 1903 in the vicinity and housing in the town increased. The dwellings built from 1903 up to the 1930s were generally designed in Arts & Crafts style and consisted of well-built detached, semi-detached and terrace properties.

To the north of the town The Grange began construction in 1947 and to the south east Jackmans was built from 1961. These were council / municipal housing estates with many residents originally coming from the London overspill. Two more prosperous (and private) estates – Lordship and Manor Park – were built from in 1971 to the south west.

Smaller areas of in-fill housing also appeared in the 1990s, particularly on land adjacent to Jackmans Estate on the sites of a former creamery and the Willian Secondary School.

There has been a number of new developments of late, including Madden Gardens in Blackhorse Road and Fairfield Gardens (houses and apartments).

Properties in Letchworth which are built close to the Pix Brook, in roads such as Norton Way North and Icknfield Way, are subject to flood 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).
Some properties in Letchworth are located nearby to existing or proposed sites for wind farms or wind turbines.

A recent environmental search carried out for a property in Common View 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.
Your RICS surveyor inspects drains during a survey of a property in Letchworth, where the drain cover is accessible and on the site of the property.

If the drains are reported to be blocked you may need to employ a drainage company to inspect the drains with CCTV such as Drain 365.

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