Top tips for a Peterborough Home Buyers Survey


Peterborough is a city in Cambridgeshire with a cathedral mainly built between 1118 and 1237. It is in a flat area with some parts below sea level. When the railways arrived in the 1840s, its population – and housing – expanded significantly.

The city was associated with brick-making, particularly of Fletton Brick, which can be seen for example in the present HM Prison Peterborough.

You can find gorgeous Georgian detached properties in the Northborough area and Victorian terraces in Eastfield Road and Victorian townhouses in West Water Crescent. There are plenty of standard interwar semi-detached houses in the Princes Garden area (some of them with large rear extensions.

There has been considerable development of the town since the 1970s until the present day. This has resulted in new 'townships' being built including Bretton, Orton, Paston/Werrington and Hampton (which has most recently been built). Shared ownership is commonly available.

Local Tip 1

Local Tip 3
Properties in Peterborough which are built close to the River Nene or in the fens to the east such as Flag Fen and Prior's, in roads such as Wistow Way and Bailey Way, 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).
Wind energy is one of several alternative energy sources; however, location of wind farms or turbines can be contentious due to visual and auditory impact on the surrounding area.

A recent Environmental Search for a property in Morris Street Peterborough PE1 5DX, stated that the dwelling was within 4km of existing or proposed wind farms or wind turbines.
A recent Environmental Search for a property in Morris Street Peterborough PE1 5DX, stated that the dwelling was within 50m of an area with potential for natural ground instability.

The British Geological Survey has assessed the area of search as having moderate potential for natural ground instability. This does not necessarily mean there is cause for concern in terms of the property's stability. 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. 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 Peterborough 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 Peterborough's leasehold flats require only a RICS HomeBuyer Report but for any Victorian conversions, a Building Survey may well be required.
