Top tips for a Devon Home Buyers Survey


Devon is a county in the southwest of England and Exeter is its county town. The north and south coasts of Devon each have both cliffs and sandy shores, and the county's bays contain seaside resorts, fishing towns, and ports.

Devon's coast is lined with tourist resorts, many of which grew rapidly with the arrival of the railways in the 19th century. Examples include Dawlish, Exmouth and Sidmouth on the south coast, and Ilfracombe and Lynmouth on the north.

New build developments include detached houses in Ottery St Mary, and in Devon Road and main road in Salcombe, terraced houses in Cliff Road, Salcombe and in Newton Ferrers in Plymouth and modern apartments in College Way, Dartmouth.

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, large parts of Devon, including all of Dartmoor National Park, are in a raised radon area, with properties built there having a higher probability than average of experiencing ground Radon emissions.

Does the surveyor use Drones to assess the property?

The use of more advanced digital technology within assessing properties is on the rise but don’t always exceed the results obtained from more industry standard equipment or save any time.

RICS surveyors have a selection of measuring equipment, recording devices and equipment for assessing remote and concealed areas such as standard lifting equipment for inspection chamber covers, meter cupboard keys, hand mirrors, a ladder that gives safe access to spaces that are three metres above floor level, and binoculars or telescopes for parts of the property at high level which can be utilized to efficiently certify efects.
