Top tips for a Kidderminster Home Buyers Survey


Kidderminster is a large town in the Wyre Forest district of Worcestershire in the Midlands. It has a strong association with the carpet industry. The few period properties around generally tend to be found in out-of-town locations, such as the Georgian Goldness House in nearby Torton, although there are Victorian terraces in the area, such as in Wood Street.

There are many 1920s – 1950s standard construction semi-detached and terrace houses such as in Sutton Park Road and bungalows in Coningsby Drive and Greatfield Road. Larger detached properties can be found in Oldnall Road and modern detached properties in Hurcott Road.

New build developments include the townhouses in Park Lane and the detached houses in Stourport Road.

Properties in Kidderminster which are built in close proximity to the River Stour, in streets such as Mill Street and Crown Lane, 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).
Your RICS surveyor inspects drains during a survey of a property in Kidderminster, where the drain cover is accessible and on the site of the property.

If the drains are reported to be blocked you may need to employ a drainage company to inspect the drains with CCTV such as Draincure UK.
Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the Kidderminster area mainly centre around the main road – Park Butts Ringway A456, and of rail pollution where the railway line crosses Yew Tree Road.

WorcestershireWorcestershire is a county in the West Midlands and Worcester is its county town and is a cathedral city, containing the beautiful Worcester Cathedral. The county is mainly rural, containing the Malvern Hills, which border it to the west. The Malvern Hills have been classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). The Worcestershire Beacon, which at 425m is the highest point in the county, lies in this range.

Some parts of the county to its north east are in the industrial area of the West Midlands. Major settlements include Kidderminster, Bromsgrove and Redditch (all satellite towns of Birmingham). Adjoining counties include West Midlands, Warwickshire, Gloucestershire, Staffordshire and Shropshire.

Worcester is the largest populated urban area and contains the county's one university, the University of Worcester. It is also the main transport hub, offering direct railway services from Worcester Shrub Hill to London Paddington and many other major conurbations.

There are 3 motorways running through the county; the M5, the M42 and M50. Two major rivers flow through the county, the Severn and the Avon.

Arguably Kidderminster Harriers is the county's most famous football team – it is non-league and one of the oldest in the country – and Worcestershire County Cricket Club's (WCCC) home ground is at New Road in Worcester. WCCC last won the county championship in the late 80s in the era of Ian Botham, Graham Dilley and Graeme Hick.

The village of Broadheath, about 6 miles (10 km) North-West of the city of Worcester, is the birthplace of the composer Edward Elgar. Worcester’s Berrow’s Journal has a claim to be the oldest surviving newspaper in the world, publishing started in 1709.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A RICS Home Buyers Survey identifies many different defects or potential risks that can be found within a property and is an essential part of any home buying process.

The survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is completed by a Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) registered surveyor so they are fully trained to provide you with the detail you need to buy your home.

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 your Home Buyers Survey highlights concerns relating to any of these defects your surveyor explains what the issue is in detail and provides a recommendation as to what you should do to further investigate. An example of this is if your surveyor spots signs of damp within the property.

Over 5,000 properties a week in the UK have damp proofing laid to combat the issue of rising damp
and home buyers fear seeing mould, peeling wall paper and sodden floors as these are all tell-tale signs of rising damp.

If your property is showing these signs and your surveyor notes using their damp monitor that there is damp internally they'll advise you to get a damp specialist to attend the property, confirm the issue advising whether it is rising damp and quote for the costs in repairing with damp proofing.

If you're looking at buying a home in Kidderminster which is showing signs of damp, or any other defects then you MUST get a Home Buyers Survey.

The costs for repairing the defects can run into thousands of pounds; however, If you can identify the problem 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.

What happens if you choose the wrong survey for the type of property?

If once the Building Surveyor turns up to complete the survey, they feel the property does not suit the type of survey purchase, the surveyor will inform the client and the survey will not take place.

The scope of work of a HomeBuyer Report is different from that of a Building Survey. You an read the scope of work in a HomeBuyer Report here.

In most cases, the surveyor will agree to complete the appropriate inspection and then the client can pay the additional fee for the more appropriate survey.
