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.

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.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

When you get a mortgage your mortgage lender requires you to pay for a survey valuation of the property. The aim of this survey is to give the mortgage lender reassurance that the property is worth what you are paying. Although you pay for the mortgage valuation survey, it belongs to the mortgage lender and often you won't be allowed to see it.


It is paramount that when buying a property in Crawley, or you get your own HomeBuyers Survey that reports on defects or potential issues with the property; either a HomeBuyers Report or a Building Survey. Buying without a survey could leave you exposed to any repair costs or defects that you didn't spot. Defects such as subsidence can cost thousands to repair and would affect your future sale price if not repaired.

A HomeBuyer Survey will give you reassurance to buy your new home without worrying about what is in the closet. If you aren't sure what you should do or which HomeBuyer Survey to get call us on 0333 344 3234 and we'll talk you through the options - this is what we do!
