Top tips for a Banstead Home Buyers Survey


Banstead is a small town in Surrey on the North Downs. Although being known for horse racing since the 17th century, population in the area was quite small until the late 19th century when roads were improved and the railway arrived. 

Low density social housing in pleasant semi-detached and terrace houses was built in the early 20th century and interwar periods and building continued after the 2nd world war, not least to replace housing stock destroyed by bombing raids.

Its parish church of All Saints was originally built in the 12th and 13th centuries and restored in 1861 and the old village well dates to the 18th century.

Most housing in Banstead is in the form of flats and apartments – these number slightly more than the semi-detached properties – although one area, Nork, has more detached properties than any other type.

There are many new build developments in the vicinity of the High Street, mainly consisting of detached and semi-detached properties.

Survey Tip 3

A section of Banstead to the north of the railway station, including streets such as Walnut Tree Close and Gilham's Avenue, is in an area which is subject to flood alerts 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 Banstead.

In a recent environmental search, taken out for a property in Shearwater Road the report noted that there was a moderate potential for natural ground instability within 50m 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."

According to the UK Government's Public Health England, Banstead, including streets such as Shearwater Road and Gander Green Lane, is in a raised radon area, with properties built there having a higher probability than average of experiencing ground Radon emissions.

The raised Radon area has a maximum radon potential of 1-3% (the percentage is the chance of a property being built where Radon emissions might measure above the action level).

If you are concerned that a property you are buying is in an area of raised Radon, please click to visit Public Health England's UK Radon Map. Click also to find out more about Radon, Radon property searches and much more.

Guildford is the county town, however Surrey County Council can be found just up the A3 in the neighbouring town Kingston Upon Thames. It was in Dorking in Surrey at the White Horse where Charles Dickens wrote much of his Pickwick Papers and apparently based many of the characters on local people

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

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.

Does the surveyor climb onto the roof of the property?

The surveyor carries with them a ladder that allows them access to areas above head height. Due to Health and Safety, a RICS surveyor is not allowed to go higher than 3 meters.

The surveyor will use powerful binoculars to inspect the roof of a property to see signs of damage to the roof, tiles, chimney, soffets and fascias.

Flat roofs can be inspected from opening a window in the property and looking out to view the same.

If there is a need for a closer inspection of the roof, then scaffolding will be required to be obtained to allow safe access to the roof. It is very rare for this type of survey to be completed during the purchase of a property.
