Top tips for a Suffolk Home Buyers Survey


Architecture in Suffolk, which has no quarries or brickworks is a highly varied hotch-potch of various styles and materials. You can see flinty-grey churches as well as brightly-coloured cottages with materials such as marshland rushes and clay and timber used for building.

Grand houses include Elveden Hall, Framlingham Castle and Ickworth House. Long Melford's village street has perhaps 5 centuries' worth of highly indigenous housing with some plastered, some timbered and some with Tudor-original tall chimney stacks. In Lavenham, the beautiful timber-frame Guildhall of the Wool Guild of Corpus Christi still stands in the market place. You can also find moated houses in the Kentwell area.

The larger towns such as Ipswich also have much more modern developments, particularly the standard terraced, semi-detached and detached houses built from the 1930s onwards. In fact Ipswich, where there are many housing projects planned or en route to completion has much relatively modern housing such as can be seen in the Bader Close development.

Properties in Suffolk which are built in close proximity to the coast and to the Rivers Blyth and Walpole and the watercourses of Chediston, Bramfield and Wrentham, in streets such as Saxons Way, Mill Down, Mill Road and Chediston Street, are in an area where flood warnings and flood 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 parts of Suffolk, particularly to its east, around the coast, including streets such as Colneis Road, Foxgrove Land and Maybush Lane (around the town of Felixstowe), 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 3 - 5% (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.
Some local authorities in Suffolk have adopted a Community Infrastructure Levy. A recent local authority search taken out for a property in IXworth Road, Norton, Bury St Edmuncs, IP31 3LF revealed that Mid Suffolk District Council adopted this levy on 21st January 2016.

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