Top tips for a Crawley Home Buyers Survey


Crawley in West Sussex has been a market town for centuries but grew greatly firstly when the railway arrived in 1841 and then when Gatwick Airport opened nearby in the 1940s.

You can find period properties in the area - such as Georgian detached houses in Ifield Green – a large number of semi-detached and terrace houses built from the 1940s to the 1970s – such as can be found in New Street – and many very recent developments such as can be found all over Maidenbower.

Survey Tip 3

Properties built close to the Gatwick Stream in Crawley, in streets such as Bycroft Way, are subject to flood alerts and warnings 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).
Some properties in Crawley are located nearby to areas to be explored for their energy potential by the oil & gas industry – they must be licensed by the Oil and Gas Authority – and such exploration includes areas subject to hydraulic fracturing ("fracking") investigation.

A recent environmental search carried out for a property in Hillingdale, Crawley RH11 9PF for example, flagged up that the property was within 4km of a well used for energy exploration or extraction.
Properties in some areas of Crawley are built in designated smoke control areas.

A recent local authority search done for a dwelling in Honeysuckle Lane, Crawley, RH11 7TQ noted that the property was in such a smoke control area.

Under the terms of Section 20 of the Clean Air Act 1993, smoke emissions from all buildings are prohibited unless an exemption has been made by the Secretary of State under Section 21 of the Act.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A Home Buyers Survey identifies many different defects or potential risks that can be found within a property and is an essential part of any home buying process. The survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is completed by a Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) registered Surveyor so they are fully trained to provide you with the detail you need to give you the salient facts when you are looking to buy your home in Crawley.

Should any issues be flagged up in the Home Buyers Survey, our surveyor will tell you what you need to do to get more in-depth advice on the extent and seriousness of the issue affecting your property in Crawley and what needs to be done to remedy it.

If you are worried about a crack or cracks or indeed any other defects that you think your property has, we strongly recommend you get a Home Buyers Survey as the cost of remedying the problem might snowball into many thousands of pounds further down the line.

Can you attend the Survey with the surveyor?

Most surveyors do not allow the client on site whilst carrying out their inspection. They have a long list of defects that they need to check for and they cannot be distracted from the job in hand as they can be held to account for any missed defects.

The surveyors' professional indemnity insurance does not cover for bringing any third party on site with them while they are completing their inspection, therefore, in the event of any damage being sited by a vendor while the survey is taking place, the surveyor would be liable and uninsured.

On the day of the survey if you have any concerns you can make the surveyor aware of this so they can pay special attention to these areas during their inspection.
