Top tips for a Stoke-on-Trent Home Buyers Survey

Stoke-on-Trent is a city in Staffordshire to the north of the Midlands area. It formed in the early 20th century from the amalgamation of the areas of Stoke-up-Trent, Hanley, Burslem, Tunstall, Longton and Fenton. It is the only example of a polycentric city in the UK. It is the home of England's pottery industry.

Only a few of the buildings along the main street of Stoke survive from the early development of the town in the years immediately before and after 1800. Most of the frontages have been rebuilt, several of them in the different ornate styles of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

Housing styles are quite varied; there are Victorian double-fronted houses in Uttoxeter Road, Blythe Bridge, there are Edwardian terraces in Tellwright Street, Burslem and many interwar period properties, typically semi-detached houses, such as the 2-bedroom properties of the 1930s in John Bright Street, Hanley. There are 1960s brutalist-style tower blocks in Bucknall Old Road in Hanley.

New build developments include the semi-detached houses in Russell Grove, Werrington, the detached houses in Dragons Court, Stone Road and the apartments in Poundlock Avenue, Hanley and Harold Hines Way, Trentham Manor.

Properties in Stoke-on-Trent which are built in close proximity to the River Trent, in streets such as Woodhouse Street and Butler Street, are 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).
Properties sometimes have issues with ground stability in certain locations in Stoke-on-Trent.

In a recent environmental search, taken out for a property in Wimborne Avenue, the report noted that there was a man-made ground instability within 250m of the property.

This should not be taken to mean that the property in question actually suffered/suffers from subsidence however as "active subsidence will be dependent on local conditions, such as the proximity of trees or areas where trees have been removed, which require an inspection of the site to identify the nature of the ground on which the property is built."

Properties in some areas of Stoke-on-Trent may be affected by overhead power lines or mobile phone masts.

A recent environmental search carried out for a property in Leek Road revealed that there were overhead power lines or mobile phone masts located within 250m of the dwelling.

Overhead power lines and phone masts can be contentious and additionally may have a visual impact on the surrounding area.

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.
