Top tips for a Plymouth Home Buyers Survey

Plymouth is a city on the south coast of Devon and its history goes back at least to the Bronze Age. It is where the Pilgrim Fathers set off for North America. It grew as a shipping port during the Industrial Revolution and became a city in 1928. It was hit hard in the 'Plymouth Blitz' of the 2nd world war, which caused considerable rebuilding of the city centre.

Between 1951 and 1957 over 1000 homes were completed every year mostly using innovative prefabricated systems and by 1964, over 20,000 new homes had been built and mostly according to the Modernist zoned low-density garden city model around large thoroughfares like Armada Way.

the Saltram estate has a Jacobean and Georgian mansion and on the northern outskirts of the city, Crownhill Fort is a well restored example of a "Palmerston's Folly".

New build developments include detached houses in Plymbridge Road, and in Brixton and Brixton Village, terrace houses in Chapel Street (where Help to Buy can be available), sea view apartments in Hoe Road and semi-detached houses off Haye Road.

Properties in Plymouth which are built in close proximity to the north bank of the River Plym, in streets such as Lanhydrock Road and Mirador Place, are in an area 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).
When a RICS surveyor carries out either a building survey or homebuyer report in the Plymouth area, they will switch the lights on and off but not test the whole electrical system. If they suspect that there is an electrical problem, they will recommend that you consult a local electrical contractor.

A local electrician in the Plymouth area is Shave & Son Electrical, 13 Mayfair Cres, Plymouth PL6 5PA.
Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the Plymouth area are highest around where the A38 Devon Expressway and the A374/B3416 Plymouth Road interchange, and affects nearby streets such as Dunclair Park, Military Road and Longbridge Road.

The railway passes close by to this area as well, raising noise pollution to higher levels and particularly around where it runs alongside the A374 Plymouth Road, affecting streets such as Laura Avenue and Finch Close.

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