Top tips for a Hereford Home Buyers Survey


The population of Hereford greatly increased when the railway arrived in 1854; the large number of properties built to accommodate them were therefore built in the Victorian era. Some of these properties lie on Lyde Street and Canon From. These dwellings are detached in the main, but there are semi-detached and terrace properties on Stanhope Street and Burley Gate.

New developments in Hereford are such as that of The Orchards in Withington and Oaklands Holt in Weobley, both of which are just a stone's throw from Hereford.

Survey Tip 3

Properties in Hereford which are built in close proximity to the floodplain of the River Wye and its tributary Eign Brook, affecting streets such as Goodwin Way and Putson Avenue, are sometimes subject to flood warnings and alerts.

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).
Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the Hereford area mainly centre around the A49 and the A438, affecting streets nearby such as Shinwell Road and Friars Street. The railway causes noise pollution for roads such as Kingsway and College Road.

The railway line and the A49 track each other closely around the area which includes Burcott Street and this is where noise pollution is likely to peak.
According to the UK Government's Public Health England, Hereford, including streets such as Bath Street and Grandstand Road, 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 1-3% (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.

Hereford is the county town and is the largest settlement in the county. The county is one of the most rural and lowest populated counties in England.

Many rivers and brooks run through Herefordshire with the major ones being the River Wye, the River Teme and the River Lugg. There are mainly just dual carriageways in the county, with the exception of part of the M50 running along the south.

Why do I need a survey?

The conveyancing process operates on the principle of ‘ caveat emptor ’ which means ‘let the buyer beware’ and it can be broken down in the following way.

Your solicitors make sure the property is legally okay to buy, the mortgage lender makes sure the property is financially okay to buy and the surveyor you hire to carry out a homebuyer report/building survey makes sure the property is structurally okay to buy.

In light of this, the purpose of the survey is to make sure you are aware of any defects present in the property when you buy it.

If defects are found, then the survey gives you the opportunity to bargain with the seller, whether it be a reduction in price or an agreement that the seller makes good on the work necessary before purchase.
