Top tips for a Nuneaton Home Buyers Survey


Nuneaton has a reasonably long history as a settlement – it was listed as containing 169 houses in 1543 – and there are therefore examples of buildings from various architectural periods surviving since the 16th century at least.

That said, the expansion in the number of properties was considerable when the railway arrived in 1847, in the mid-Victorian period and the growth in the brick and tile making industries in the area added further fuel to building in the late 19th century.

Some 380 houses were destroyed and more than 10,000 damaged during the Second World War and in the early postwar years the need arose for low cost housing, and in response to this around 2,500 council houses were built during the 1950s. The largest such development was at Camp Hill, where 1,400 new houses were built by 1956, while around 1,100 new council houses were built at new estates at Hill Top, Caldwell and Marston Lane by 1958. Following this, Nuneaton's expansion was largely driven by private developments at Weddington, St Nicolas Park, Whitestone and Stockingford.

During the 1960s much of the town centre was redeveloped, partly due to the bomb damage which had been sustained in the war. In recent decades, the town has continued to flourish and expand, meaning that there are a fair number of new build developments of relatively standard construction.

Some locations in the vicinity of Nuneaton are in areas where coal has been previously mined might be affected adversely by these activities in terms of, for example, subsidence and contamination. If a property you're looking to buy is regarded as being in one of these areas and you're buying with a mortgage, your lender might well require you to buy a Coal Mining Report conveyancing search as well as the more usual conveyancing property searches.

A recent such report was bought regarding a property in Buchan Close, Galley Common, Nuneaton CV10 9RR, and while it revealed that the dwelling was in a surface area that could be affected by mining in 4 seams of coal, it also stated reassuringly that any movement in the ground should have stopped, that no present underground mining was in the area, that there were no known mining entries within 20 metres of the property and that there were no future plans to mine coal or any known geological faults or weaknesses which might affect the property.
Parish church claims on parishioners for chancel repair, where these occur, can be fairly costly, with individual households possibly being legally required to pay £1,000s.

Buying a chancel repair indemnity insurance policy for a property you're looking to buy is an easy and efficient way of protecting yourself against this possible eventuality and among many others, one such policy was taken out for a property in New Road, Ash Green, CV7 9AS. This policy generally costs around £20 to buy and normally covers the policy holder for claims to the limit of £1 million.
When you're looking to buy a property, you'll want to know that the previous owners have correctly applied for any relevant planning permission and/or have received appropriate clearance from Building Control from the local authority for any works carried out on the property which require either or both of these.

The Local Authority Property Search lists these and is therefore invaluable to your conveyancing solicitor who can reconcile the material published in it against any other evidence. In the case of one such report, taken out for a property in Brownshill Green Road CV6 2DT, there were entries for a FENSA certificate (windows), the installation of a gas boiler, a cooker dwelling house ring and main/supplementary equipotential bonding for a new consumer unit (electrics).

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A Home Buyers Survey involves an examination of the structure of the inside and the outside of a property aimed at pinpointing issues such as subsidence, damp, cracks, infestation and damage. The survey, 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.

If they find any issues during the inspection of your property in Nuneaton, our surveyor will flag them up in the Home Buyers Survey and give you advice on what you should do to solve them. An example of this is where the surveyor finds evidence of woodworm infestation. 

If you are concerned about any other defects with the property you MUST get a Home Buyers Survey as the costs of repairing the defects can run into thousands of pounds.

Why can’t I have a Building Survey on a flat?

As a rule, flats/maisonettes/post 1950s standard construction properties are best suited to HomeBuyer Reports.

The surveyor has substantially less to check and remark upon when surveying these types of property, additionally more modern buildings benefit from better construction techniques in the main.

To carry out a full Building Survey on a property such as this would be overkill, whereas a Homebuyer Report is designed for and is more than adequate for completing the task and, most importantly, for reporting any signs or suspicions of defects.
