The River Frome runs through the town which means some properties may be within flood risk areas. These include houses such as those on Rodden Road, Hemley Way and Lover Innox.

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).
The east side of Frome is along the A361 which may cause raised levels of noise pollution for Wyville Road and Styles Hill. The A362/Portway may cause raised noise pollution for streets in the centre of the town such as Harcourt Mews, Wine Street and Park Road.

The main railway line causes increased nosie pollution for Stanier Close and Pensford Way.
According to the UK Government's Public Health England, majority of Frome is in a raised radon area, with properties built there having a higher probability than average of experiencing ground Radon emissions.

SomersetSomerset is a county in south-west England and is mainly rural with rolling hills. These include the Mendips, the Quantocks, Exmoor National Park and the Blackdown Hills, all of which are well worth a leisurely visit. Somerset is synonymous with cider and scrumpy, particularly in the Taunton area.

The county is made up from seven districts; South Somerset, Taunton Deane, West Somerset, Sedgemoor, Mendip, Bath and North East Somerset and North Somerset. The county town is Taunton and the county also contains the beautiful city of Bath (which is its own administrative authority), with its celebrated Roman remains and excellent architecture. Adjacent counties include Gloucestershire, Bristol, Wiltshire, Dorset and Devon.

There are 3 universities in the ceremonial county; these are the University of Bath, Bath Spa University and the University of the West of England. The nearest airport is in Bristol and the M5 is the one motorway going through the county.

Other excellent places to visit there include Cheddar Gorge (yes, Cheddar cheese does come from here, invented by accident around 800 years ago!), Wookey Hole Caves and Glastonbury Tor.

The Glastonbury Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts takes place most years in Pilton, near Shepton Mallet, attracting over 170,000 music and culture lovers from around the world to see world-famous entertainers.

Yeovil Town is in the Football League and Somerset County Cricket Club play at Taunton. The team used to include Ian Botham, Viv Richards and Joel Garner among other top stars of the cricket world.

Tarr Steps near Winsford in Somerset is thought to date from around 1000 BC and is the oldest bridge in Britain still in use – there is no concrete joining the stones which make up its fabric!

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 Frome 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.

NB If you're a first time buyer, you might wish to click on What is a House Survey to find out more, including what happens during the inspection.

If the Home Buyers Survey flags up any of these defects then our Surveyor explains what you need to do to get further advice on how to investigate them and get It resolved. 

If you are concerned about your property in Frome having any other defects then you MUST get a Home Buyers Survey as the costs for repairing the defects can run into thousands of pounds. 

If you can identify the defect before you purchase then you can get quotes for fixing it and either share the costs with the seller, or, in worst case examples, choose not to proceed.

Do I really need a survey?

Surveys are very useful.

They can help you avoid any expensive surprises that may pop out in the future, as well as giving you peace of mind that the property you are buying is structurally sound.

With the information from the survey you might reconsider whether to buy the property or try and renegotiate the price, if you find it needs lots of repairs, it is reasonable to ask for some money of the price.

Alternatively, you might ask the seller to fix the problems before you buy it.

The last resort is to pull out from buying the property altogether.
