Top tips for a Tamworth Home Buyers Survey


Tamworth hosts several architectural survivals from hundreds of years ago, including a simple but elevated 12th century castle, a well-preserved medieval church (the Church of St Editha) and a Moat House.

There are a considerable number of properties still standing from the Victorian period, when the town's population greatly increased, including the split-level station.

The first council houses in Tamworth were built in 1900. More were built in the 1920s and 1930s and after 1945. The first public library in Tamworth was built in 1905. There has also been considerable development in the last few decades up to the present day.

A recent Environmental Search taken out for a property in Tamworth, in Barton Close, Amington B77 4EX, revealed several entries related to contaminated land in the vicinity, specifically concerning landfill and waste sites sited within 500 metres of the property and additionally filled ground (pit, quarry etc.) within 250 metres of the property which might cause potential contamination.

This information can be material both in your choice of whether to proceed with a purchase and in terms of the possible need to carry out further research to get a better idea about whether there are any real contamination risks.
Tamworth is in an area where previously there were extensive coal mining works. Sometimes these works, if located sufficiently near to properties, can cause problems regarding ground stability and even contamination.

This is why your lender will sometimes insist on you taking out a Coal Mining Report. One such report, taken out for a property in Layton Close, Dosthill, Tamworth B77 1DU, revealed that that it was not within an area which could be affected by past underground mining, however, the presence of coal near the surface, the report advised, should be considered prior to any future development activities. Additionally, the Coal Authority advised that there might be future underground coal mining works instituted.
A recent Local Authority search for a property in Eachelhurst Road, B76 1EP revealed that both planning permission and building control regulations had been correctly applied for, granted and signed off regarding a ground floor and first floor extension and loft conversion for the dwelling.

If you were looking at buying such a property and found that it had been extended, this particular search would tell you if there was an absence of planning permission and compliance with building control regulations sign-off rules. This can cause considerable complications and might even make you pull out of the purchase, which underlines the importance of this particular conveyancing search and why, if you're buying using a mortgage, lenders insist on you getting one.

Is a mortgage valuation a Building Survey?

People have been known to confuse a mortgage valuation with a HomeBuyers Survey. This confusion can prove costly and end up in a home buyer having to fork out for expensive repair costs which should have been shared with the vendor with this reflected in a reduction in the original sale price. If you're buying a property in Tamworth with a mortgage, your lender conducts its own mortgage valuation to calculate the value of the property and this is in no sense a report on structural defects.


A HomeBuyers Survey notes defects as well as including a full valuation of a property independently of the mortgage lender or anyone else. The information in it can be used to get quotes for the cost of fixing any issues and presents evidence for bargaining with the seller about sharing repair costs, if appropriate.
