Top tips for a Loughborough Home Buyers Survey

Although Loughborough's main growth spurt in terms of population and with it housing occurred in the mid-to-late 19th century, most of its visible buildings were constructed in the 20th century, when it began to acquire new suburbs.

Thorpe Acre in the town's west originally began as a hamlet and several houses or cottages survive from this period, although Thorpe Acre with Dishley was originally built in 1845 and extended in 1968.

After the second world war, 100 dwellings were built to house employees of Brush Engineering Works which were built of no-fines concrete. .

Stonebow, at the upper end of Maxwell Drive, was built in the 1980s. Further development started in 2004, to link Maxwell Drive to Mitchell Drive, where Stonebow Primary School is located. The original Dishley, off Derby Road, was heavily developed, with Thorpe Acre, in the 1970s. Dishley Church is now a ruin in Derby Road. The agriculturalist Robert Bakewell (1726–1795) is buried there. Shelthorpe and surrounding area are new suburbs in the south of Loughborough. Work on the original Shelthorpe started in 1929, but was halted by World War II and resumed in 1946.

There are various new build developments in the area, additionally.

A local authority search is brilliant at listing planning issues which might affect the enjoyment of a property that you're looking to buy such as one bought for a home in Banbury Drive, Shepshed, Loughbourough LE12 9PL, which listed that planning had been sought tor the erections of dwellings and garages in the close vicinity and tree preservation orders (i.e. which prohibit trees being cut down).
Some areas around Loughborough's vicinity may be affected by higher than usual levels of radon, an inert gas which arises from the ground, and which can cause lung cancer. The areas in questions are particularly prevalent to Loughborough's north, north-west and most of all to its south west – in Nanpantan – for example in streets such as Foden Close and Shells Brook Lane – where the Maximum radon potential is 10-30 %.

You find out about radon from various sources, such as the Environmental Search, the Local Authority Search and even a specialist radon search report. Depending on the levels registered, you may be advised to take further measures to protect yourself when buying a property in the area.
A Local Authority Search taken out for a property you're looking to buy can reveal matters like whether you have rights of way or roads on your land and whether these are maintainable at public expense - or your own. A recent such report bought for a property in Milton Court, Loughborough LE11 5JL revealed that there was a footpath and a service road which were not maintainable at public expense and that there were also limits to development and washland.

Leicestershire Leicestershireis in the East Midlands and Leicester is its traditional administrative centre, even though the City of Leicester itself is a unitary authority and administered separately. The county is bordered by Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire, Rutland, Northamptonshire, Warwickshire, Staffordshire and Derbyshire.

Leicestershire has 2 motorways running through it - the M1 and the M69. The county has 3 universities; the University of Leicester, Loughborough University and De Montfort University.

The county hosts the East Midlands Airport a hub airport for domestic, EU and international flights, which is located at Castle Donington. Castle Donington is also the location of Donington Park, which has many uses, ranging from motor racing to hosting large music concerts and festivals.

Other than Leicester, other large towns in the county include Loughborough, Ashby-de-la-Zouch, Coalville, Hinckley, Market Harborough and Melton Mowbray.

Food associated with the county includes Red Leicester, Long Clawson and Stilton cheeses and pork pies, particularly Melton Mowbray Pork Pies.

For random facts, the original Hansom Cab - i.e. with a mechanical meter - was invented in Hinckley in the county (by Joseph Hansom) in 1834 and Thomas Cook organised the world's first package tour from Leicester in 1841.

Worth a paragraph on its own, the phrase 'painting the town red' originates from revelry which accompanied some loutish aristocratic hunters celebrating a good day's hunting in 1837 in Melton Mowbray: they daubed red paint on houses, pub signs and a toll-bar and apparently, some of the paint still remains on some of the older houses in the High Street.

What is included in a Building Survey?

The Royal institute of Chartered Surveyors provides guidance on what you can expect to have included in your survey report.

The main areas included in the inspection are assessments for signs of subsidence, testing for damp, a review of drains and a loft and roof space inspection.

Checks are also made to identify any signs of asbestos or infestation which may require further specialist checks.

Utilities are assessed and any recommendations made if any concerns about age and condition are identified.

Testing of equipment cannot be carried out as tests can only be carried out by qualified specialists such as plumbers or electricians based locally in Loughborough.

The surveyor provides recommendations in the legal section of the report which should be passed to the legal adviser carrying out the conveyancing to ensure any necessary enquiries are raised with the vendor’s solicitor.
