Top tips for a Bognor Regis Home Buyers Survey


Bognor Regis is a seaside town on the south coast in West Sussex. It developed greatly when the railway arrived in 1864, which led to many large Victorian houses being built by wealthy people of the time, many of which are still standing.

The town developed steadily in the 20th century, with both private and municipal housing being built and then patchily after World War 2: in the 1960s a high-rise block of flats was built on land just north-west of the High Street. 

In the three decades between 1950 and 1980 much residential development took place to the west and north of the town, since then mostly in-fill development has taken place, predominantly redeveloping land on brownfield sites that had formerly been used for commercial business.

New developments include terrace houses in North Bersted amd detached and semi-detached houses in Middleton-on-Sea.

Properties in Bognor Regis which are built very close to the various water courses of the Aldingbourne Rife, in streets such as Ivycroft Crescent and Highcroft Crescent, are in an area where flood warnings and alerts are issued 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).
According to the UK Government's Public Health England, some parts of Bognor Regis, including streets such as Gainsbord Road and Ockley Road, are 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.
A recent envirosearch stated that a property in Westloats Gardens, Bognor Regis, West Sussex, PO21 5LG, was within 50m of an area with potential for natural ground instability.

The British Geological Survey has assessed the area of search as having moderate potential for natural ground instability. This does not necessarily mean there is cause for concern in terms of the property's stability. 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. A house buyers survey is advised to look for signs of property damage that may indicate poor natural ground conditions.

West SussexWest Sussex along with East Sussex used to make up the larger ceremonial county of Sussex. Land in West Sussex is varied and is part coastal, part downland and part wealden.

Among the many excellent places to visit in West Sussex are Arundel Castle (classic, fairtytale-like castle built during the reign of William the Conqueror), the Vandalian Tower and Wings Museum. Counties adjacent to West Sussex include Surrey, Hampshire, East Sussex and Brighton and Hove.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A RICS Home Buyers Survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, non-intrusively inspects both the external and internal structure of a property for matters which include these, among others; damp, subsidence, infestations, cracks and damage.

If you are thinking of buying a property in Bognor Regis, it is vitally important to book a Home Buyers Survey for your peace of mind.

How long does your survey take?

We book the earliest possible slot for your RICS surveyor to carry out their inspection for your RICS home buyers survey. Then, on the day, they visit the property and inspect all accessible areas, concentrating on signs and suspicions of defects and issues.

The actual time your surveyor takes over the inspection varies with each property – you can imagine that one for a small flat for a HomeBuyers Report will normally take less than one for a large mansion for a Building Survey. It is likely to be anything between 1 ½ hours to 3 hours.

SAM Conveyancing's RICS surveyors call you on the day of the inspection after carrying it out to go over any major concerns and findings and then they complete the report and return it to you within 5 working days.
