Top tips for a Hebden Bridge Home Buyers Survey

Hebden Bridge has an excellent variety of architectural styles with much of the housing made from locally-sourced stone and it's particularly known for hosting large numbers of flying freeholds (also known as 'upstairs-downstairs houses' and 'over and under dwellings') , so-called because these consist of a ground floor freehold and an upper floor, in a building built into the slope of a hill – the area is particularly hilly.

Although housing in the area is mostly from the Victorian era and onwards, there are some survivals from earlier times, including Lacy House, a Grade II listed residence situated adjacent to the Pennine Way at Charlestown which dates to 1793. The Stubbing Wharfe, an 18th century inn, is another example.

Among the more prominent Victorian buildings is the Hebden Bridge Town Hall and adjoining fire station, which is a Grade II listed building constructed in 1897. You can find Victorian large semi-detached houses in Cragg Road and detached houses in New Road, Mytholmroyd.

There are 1930s standard construction terraced and semi-detached houses in Elphin and council houses in Elphin Court (bungalows and flats). Mytholmroyd also has many properties of standard construction (mainly terraced and semi-detached houses.

There are also more modern developments and some new build properties available.

The Local Authority Search is the most important property conveyancing search and can reveal to a prospective buyer of a property whether there are any planning issues, land charges and other related matters which might affect the enjoyment of the property and it's particularly useful for a conveyancing solicitor for providing essential information which will be considered in the eventual report on title.

A recent such search bought for a property in Lee Mill Road, Hebden Bridge HX7 7AB revealed that there were a number of development plan designations which the property was located within including a Wildlife Corridor, a Primary Housing Area, the Leeds Bradford Airport Consultation Zone and the Hameldon Hill Consultation Zone.
According to the UK Government's Public Health England, Hebden Bridge (including streets such as Bankfoot and Mayroyd Lane), is 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.
A Flood Report property conveyancing search is an additional search (i.e. not compulsory if you're buying with a mortgage) which your lender might require you to purchase if the area a property you're looking to buy is known to be at risk of flooding.

A recent such report, bought for a property in Hawksclough, Hebden Bridge HX7 8NL, revealed that the property was at a high risk of river flooding; a moderate to high risk of surface water and other flooding; and a moderate risk of ground water flooding, altogether meaning that there was a significant risk of flooding overall. The report additionally stated that despite the risk, insurance would remain available, providing the property in question was eligible for the Flood Re scheme.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A RICS Home Buyers Survey non-intrusively inspects both the external and internal structure of a property for matters which include these, among others; damp, subsidence, infestations, cracks and damage.

Whichever you opt for out of a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, they are both excellent for peace of mind if you are considering buying a property in Hebden Bridge.

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 they find any issues during the inspection of your property in Hebden Bridge, our surveyor will flag them up in the Home Buyers Survey and give you advice on what you should do to solve them. An example of this is where the surveyor finds evidence of woodworm infestation. 

If you are concerned about any other defects with the property you MUST get a Home Buyers Survey as the costs of repairing the defects can run into thousands of pounds.

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.
