Sheffield is a city of over 550,000 people situated in the eastern foothills of the Pennines. It is famed for its greenery and with an estimated 2 million trees, Sheffield has highest ratio of trees to people of any city in Europe. This is due in part to there being over 250 parks, woodlands and gardens in the city which help to give Sheffield its unique feel. The 19 acre Sheffield Botanical Gardens, that have stood southwest of the city centre since 1836, are a particularly enjoyable place to explore and they house a Victorian era glasshouse complete with many exotic tropical plants. Alternatively, Sheffield houses the largest British theatre complex outside London which produces both West End and locally produced shows. Sheffield clearly has lots to offer and therefore it is unsurprising that reallymoving.com and our RICS regulated Chartered Surveyors have helped over 2000 people relocate to the city in 2016.
In 2007, Sheffield experienced a severe flood which inflicted millions of pounds worth of damage and virtually cut off the city from the rest of the country. Although the repairs have since been completed and flood defences improved, some properties with inattentive landlords may still be suffering flood damage. This is one reason reallymoving.com highly recommends the services of our expert Chartered Surveyors as they will provide you with a detailed Homebuyer Report that will advise you on property damage – including flood damage – and the steps that need to be taken to resolve it.
With reallymoving.com you can compare up to four local Chartered Surveyors which will help you get the best deal possible on Home Surveys. With their help, your move to Sheffield will be as straightforward and stress free as it can be.
