The Bedford Property Landscape

Bedford is the county town of Bedfordshire, in the East of England. The urban area includes Kempston, Elstow and Biddenham. Searches for Conveyancing in Bedford are carried out through Bedford Borough Council at Borough Hall, Cauldwell Street, Bedford, MK42 9AP.

There are a number of properties within Bedford (including those formerly owned by the council or built on land that was owned) affected by covenants attached to their freehold title that restrict both the land-use, and certain types of development that their owners may carry out. The Solicitor handling your Conveyancing in Bedford will make enquiries to the council on your behalf to find out whether the said covenants can be removed.

There is wide selection of terraced housing and ex-council properties in Bedford town centre, including both apartment blocks and also a number of modern developments, particularly near the two stations, Bedford rail station in the town centre, and St John. Given the ready access to the capital via First Capital Connect, Bedford is ideal for commuters and purchasers looking for buy-to-let opportunities.

Kempston is a district located to the south-west of Bedford, South of the River Great Ouse and West of the railway. Properties in this area include:

  • 30s-built properties, primarily semi-detached
  • Terraces from various dates including Victorian
  • Flat conversions and purpose-built flats

New-builds such as the recent townhouses on King William Road and Ryswick Road's modern terraces, and the fairly recent Hillgrounds.

Flood Risk Assessment

Assessing the chance a building will flood may or may not be performed as part of standard searches. Making your own judgement of whether a building is likely to flood is rarely sufficient, so asking your property lawyer to perform a thorough search at your request is the safest course.
