Top tips for a Nottingham Home Buyers Survey


Nottingham is a city in the East Midlands which predates Anglo-Saxon times. Nottingham Castle was originally constructed in 1068.

The area around Oxford and Regent Street has a number of Georgian buildings and St Barnabas' RC Church is a Gothic revival building built by Pugin. Some parts of its eastern centre were rebuilt in the 1970s and the Lace Market area south of Hockley has many 4 to 7-storey red brick warehouses from the Victorian period, many of which have been converted into apartments.

Nottingham has several large council and private estates built mainly between the 1920s and 1950s, including the St Ann's, Broxtowe, Strelley, Bilborough, Apsley and Clifton.

More council homes – nearly 15,000 – were built in Nottingham in the 1970s than in any other decade: old people's complexes, low-rise flats, semi-detached and terrace houses. Many of the houses have been bought independently under the Right to Buy scheme.

There are many new build developments such as in Cotgrove and Edwalton, with Help to Buy often available.

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).
A recent Environmental Search for a property on Southwold Drive, Nottingham, NG8 1PD, stated that the property is in an area which may be affected by Coal Mining activity. It is recommended that a Coal Mining report is obtained from the Coal Authority.
Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the Nottingham area mainly centre around the main road – A6005, Castle Blvd, impacting roads and streets such as Castle Wharlf and Peveril Drive.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A RICS Home Buyers Survey is a visual inspection of the grounds and the internal/external structure of the property and identifies defects such as cracks or damage to the structure of the property, subsidence, damp and infestations.

Some of these defects you may not even see or know what to look for which makes getting a Home Buyers Survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, incredibly important when you are considering buying a home in Nottingham.

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 you're buying a home in Nottingham which shows the signs of damp, or any other defects then you MUST get a Home Buyers Survey. 

The costs for making good or repairing some of these defects can run into thousands of pounds; however, If identified within a survey you can get quotes for fixing it and either share the costs with the seller, or, in worst case examples, choose not to proceed.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

Mortgage lenders in England and Wales require you to a valuation for the property you are buying so that they can gauge whether the amount you are paying is appropriate. This survey is called a Mortgage Valuation.

The mortgage valuation is paid for by you however the results aren't always shared with you as the survey belongs to the mortgage lender.

On top of which it doesn't include any survey into potential defects or structural issues that are too often found in properties.

There is also a degree of confusion because the mortgage valuation is referred to as a survey and so many buyers assume this is what is meant by 'have you done your survey?' It is important that when buying a property in Nottingham that you arrange your own Homebuyers Survey that reports on defects or potential issues with the property; either a HomeBuyers Report or a Building Survey.

Buying without a survey could leave you at the mercy of undetected defects such as rising damp which can cost thousands to repair and would affect your future sale price if not repaired.

Homebuyers surveys are different to Mortgage Valuations, see an example from SAM conveyancing
