Top tips for a Dorking Home Buyers Survey


Dorking is mainly in a conservation area and you can find 1920s and later family detached houses in the Deepdene roads in the east of the town. 

There are large Victorian houses in the roads around Knoll Road and red brick 3 and 4-bedroom Victorian houses off Rothes Road. There are smaller Victorian cottages around West Street, South Street and Vincent Street.

Newer houses and new builds can be found in North Holmwood, Dorking's southern suburb. You can find period properties in the centre of town east of South Street.

Properties in the northwest boundaries of Dorking which are built in close proximity to the River Mole, in streets such as Pixham Lane, 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).
Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the Dorking area mainly centre around the main road South Street-A25 and of rail pollution where the railway line crosses London Road - A24.
Your RICS surveyor inspects drains during a survey of a property in Dorking, where the drain cover is accessible and on the site of the property.

If the drains are reported to be blocked you may need to employ a drainage company to inspect the drains with CCTV such as Clearmasters Ltd, Holmwood STW, Brookside, Dorking, RH5 4QH.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

Many people mistakenly think a mortgage valuation is a HomeBuyers Survey and this can leave home buyers exposed to high repair costs that could have been negotiated with the vendor. The lender's surveyor conducts a mortgage valuation to calculate the value of the property you are interested in buying in Dorking and they do not provide a detailed report on structural defects.

A HomeBuyers Survey itemises defects and includes a full appraisal of the property independently to anyone else including the mortgage lender. You can use the information to obtain quotes to fix any defects and it gives you the evidence potentially to share the costs with the seller.


Most savvy buyers make sure they get a HomeBuyers survey from an independent surveyor to make sure the property they are buying is free from defects. Call us on 0333 344 3234 to get the best HomeBuyers survey for your property in Dorking.
