Surveyor stumped by flawless house in Leigh-on-Sea

A Chartered Surveyor has been stumped during a Home Buyers Survey in Leigh-on-Sea. In a rare event, the Surveyor could find nothing, absolutely nothing, to raise concerns about. The home was in excellent condition.

Home Buyers Survey in Leigh-on-Sea provides insurance for newer home

Our client, Mr B, would have been gratified to discover that the seven-year-old property was in outstanding condition.

The detached bungalow was built in 2005 this meant it was only three years from the end of its Buildmark Cover – the insurance that protects new-build homes against defective building practices.  

For properties of this age it is essential for homebuyers to order a Home Buyers Survey. A HomeBuyer Report is an insurance policy in itself. However, unlike Buildmark, Home Buyers Surveys cover more than just dodgy builders.

Home Buyers Survey in silver medal town

Leigh-on-Sea is a popular holiday town at the mouth of the River Thames in Essex. In 2007 The Evening Standard named Leigh-on-Sea the second-best place to live on the British coast. Christchurch in Dorset narrowly pipped the Essex town for first.

This is partly due to an attractive, seaside pace of life. Leigh-on-Sea also boasts a picturesque and historic old town – known as Old Leigh. Old Leigh boasts several historic buildings and streets.

The subject of this Home Buyers Survey in Leigh-on-Sea not far from the old part of the town. It was also located close to:

  • Two large municipal parks
  • The Southend Golf Club
  • Two high schools and a primary school

Hopefully Mr B was a lover of seafood. Leigh-on-Sea’s fishing fleet are renowned for their shellfish and whitebait hauls.

There is no better way to enjoy the seaside than with a mouthful of Leigh-on-Sea scallops and a rhapsodic Home Buyers Survey – congratulations Mr B.
