Top tips for a Brighton Home Buyers Survey


Brighton is concentrated along and back from the seafront with a mixture of grand squares where most of the buildings have been divided into spacious flats, and smaller terrace houses.

Hove has a blend of Regency (as found in Tongdean Avenue, Withdean Road, Clifton Terrace and Montpelier Villas) and Victorian houses. The rest of Brighton is dominated by streets of simple Victorian terraces, although in the Tongdean and Withdean areas there are large detached Twenties houses.

The Government’s Help to Buy scheme is available at Oldbury Row in Dudley Road in the Hollingdean area of Brighton and the Super B development in New England Square offers shared ownership apartments.

Properties in Brighton in Brighton Marina Village, in streets such as in streets like The Strand and The Waterfront, are subject to flood warnings and 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).
According to the UK Government's Public Health England, Brighton, including streets such as Ewhurst Road and Redvers Road, 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 3-5% (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 Environmental Search stated that a property on Denmark Terrace, Brighton, The City of Brighton and Hove, BN1 3AN, 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.

East SussexEast Sussex is a county in southern England. Coupled with West Sussex, it used to make up the larger ceremonial county of Sussex. It consists of chalk uplands, river gaps, marshlands, both sand and clay soils, sandstone cliffs and forest, such as Ashdown Forest.

The county town is Lewes and other major populated settlements include Eastbourne, Hastings, Bexhill, Seaford, Rottingdean, Crowborough and Hailsham.

It also contains the large city/conurbation of Brighton and Hove, although this latter is its own unitary authority. Brighton has a whole host of attractions including the Royal Pavilion.

The county contains no motorways. Adjacent counties include Surrey, West Sussex and Kent. There are two universities based in the county; the University of Sussex and the University of Brighton.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

Our RICS Surveyor, during a Home Buyers Survey in Brighton, inspects both the inside and the outside of your property and searches in particular for subsidence, damp, infestations and any cracks or other damage to the property.

The procedure, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is non-intrusive.

NB If you're a first time buyer, you might wish to click on What is a House Survey to find out more, including what happens during the inspection.

If the Home Buyers Survey shows up any such problems, our appointed surveyor will explain to you what you should do to get more in-depth information about the type and scope of the matter and what is required to fix it.

If you are worried about any defects that you think your property in Brighton has, we strongly recommend you get a Home Buyers Survey as the cost of remedying the problem might grow to many thousands of pounds as time progresses.

What’s the difference between a HomeBuyer Report and a Building Survey?

When it comes to property surveys for home buyers there are two main choices.

The first is the RICS HomeBuyer Report; this survey is specifically designed for post-1950s flats/bungalows/maisonettes or houses of standard construction. The report uses a 'traffic light' format to indicate the opinion of the surveyor on the various aspects of the building under consideration. The HomeBuyer Report includes a current market valuation as standard which can be used to compare with your property's agreed asking price.

The second option is the RICS Building Survey; this survey is reserved for older and larger properties that may have had the original fabric of the property altered or have unique features (i.e. a thatched roof). It is the most detailed visual inspection that can be carried out.

While it doesn’t include the property valuation that comes as standard with a HomeBuyer Report, many surveyors will often include in it an estimate of the cost of works for maintenance or upgrades to help with repairs or renovation to the property.
