Top tips for a Salisbury Home Buyers Survey


Salisbury is a cathedral city and the only city in Wiltshire. Stonehenge, constructed between 3000 and 2000 BC, is close by.

It has a wide variety of houses, including Georgian cottages in the High Street, Georgian country houses in Netheravon, Victorian terrace houses in Wyndham Terrace, 1920s semi-detached properties in Devizes Road and many properties built in the latter half of the 20th century.

New build developments include barn conversions in Bishopstone, semi-deatched houses in Longhedge (some offered under shared ownership) and apartments in Pearce Way.

Properties in Salisbury which are built in close proximity to the River Avon and the River Bourne, in streets such as Exeter Street and St Ann Street, 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).
Properties in some areas of Salisbury may be affected by environmental constraints.

A recent environmental search carried out for a property in Vicarage Gardens revealed that the property was within 250m of an area likely to be impacted by environmental constraints. These included environmentally sensitive areas, Avon Valley .

Areas which have been designated as having environmental or historical importance may impose constraints on property or land developments or alterations.
Properties in various parts of Salisbury, including streets such as Vicarage Gardens and Salisbury Road A345, may well be affected by the Crossrail schemes.

If you are buying a property in the area and this is of concern to you, you may well wish to consider purchasing an Energy & Infrastructure Report. or a report specific to either of the two rail schemes mentioned.

WiltshireWiltshire is a county in South West England and its county town is Trowbridge. It has high downland and wide valleys and is arguably most notable for the Stonehenge and Avebury ancient stone circles found on Salisbury Plain. It also contains a number of well known country houses including Longleat and Stourhead. The landlocked county borders Dorset, Hampshire, Oxfordshire, Somerset, Gloucestershire and Berkshire.

Originally Wiltshire's county town was Wilton but the county council is now based in Trowbridge. Salisbury is the county's only city although Swindon, which has five times as many people as Salisbury (around 210,000), is its most populated built-up area.

The M4 is the one motorway going through the county and the main transport hub is Swindon, which has regular direct trains to London Paddington and other major conurbations. The nearest major airport is Southampton.

There are three universities in Wiltshire, all located in Swindon. These are; Cranfield University, a postgraduate-only institution, which has strong links with industry and the business world; the University of the West of England and the University of Bath in Swindon.

Wiltshire has many attractions, some of which are very quirky, including Burlington, a huge nuclear bunker which can accommodate 4,000 people, Longleat Safari Park, the Kennet & Avon Canal Museum in Devizes, the Swindon and Cricklade Railway and Salisbury Cathedral.

Swindon also hosts the Magic Roundabout, which has been voted the UK's scariest road junction.

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.

If you are worried about any defects that you think your property in Salisbury has, we strongly recommend you get a Home Buyers Survey as the cost of remedying the problem might grow to many thousands of pounds as time progresses.

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 Salisbury 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
