Top tips for a Norfolk Home Buyers Survey


Norfolk is a county in the East Anglia region of England and is largely rural, with around 40% living in the more major urban areas of Norwich, Great Yarmouth, King's Lynn and Thetford.

Norfolk's county town and only city is Norwich, one of the largest settlements in England during the Norman era.

There are many seaside resorts, including some of the finest British beaches, such as those at Great Yarmouth, Cromer and Holkham.

New build developments in the county include terraced houses in Church Street, Northrepps; detached houses in Burnham Market and Holme-next-the-Sea; park homes in Brick Kiln Road, Hevingham, Norwich and modern apartments in Prince of Wales Road, Norwich and Bacton Road, North Walsham.

Properties in Norfolk which are built in close proximity to its larger rivers such as the River Bure, the River Nar, the River Wensum, the River Yare, the River Glaven, the River Wissey and the River Babingley and some which are on the coastline, may be in areas 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).
According to the UK Government's Public Health England, some parts of Norfolk, including West Newton and Dersingham, are 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 which is 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.
Areas can be designated as having environmental or historical importance; as such there may be constraints on property or land developments or alterations.

A recent Environmental Search stated that a property in Beech Close, Swaffham, Norfolk, PE37 7TU, is within 250m of an area likely to be impacted by environmental constraints.

NorfolkNorfolk is a county in the East Anglia region of England and its coastline is on the North Sea, including the Wash. Its county town is Norwich and it is largely rural, although 40% of the population live in just four urban centres, namely Norwich (which is Norfolk's only city), Great Yarmouth, King's Lynn and Thetford.

One of its major tourist attractions is the Norfolk Broads, a network of rivers and lakes, which is a National Park. Adjacent counties include Lincolnshire, Cambridgeshire and Suffolk.

There are no motorways in the county - the principal trunk roads there are the A10 and A11 - although Norwich does have an international airport. There are two universities, namely the University of East Anglia located on the outskirts of Norwich, and Norwich University of the Arts, located in St George's Street in Norwich city centre.

Norfolk has a number of amusement parks, zoos, stately homes and nature reserves, including Thrigby Hall near Great Yarmouth (tiger enclosure, primates and reptiles), Holkham Hall (beautiful 18th century stately home with a deer park, Banham Zoo and Pensthorpe Nature Reserve near Fakenham (lapwing, Eurasian crane, Marabou stork).

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

Our RICS Surveyor, during a Home Buyers Survey in Norfolk, inspects both the inside and the outside of your property and searches in particular for subsidence, damp, infestations and any cracks or other damage to the property.

The procedure, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is non-intrusive.

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.

The Home Buyer Survey will report on issues found, however you need to make sure that you choose the right Home Buyer Survey for your property because some defects require further detail and this is best served by booking a Building Survey.

You can find a local RICS surveyor by using the search at the bottom RHS of this page.

How long does my survey inspection take?

The only definitive answer that can be given is ‘as long as the surveyor needs to complete a thorough inspection of all relevant areas of the property'.

Naturally, each property varies in scope and will have its own individual features that need to be commented upon – you wouldn’t expect a modern 2 bed flat to take the same amount of time as a 7 bed, Victorian manor house!

Many surveyors might, for example, take 2 hours or so doing an inspection but you cannot specifically predict this for any particular property.
