Top tips for a Epsom Home Buyers Survey


Epsom has plenty of excellent Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian houses (and also Victorian cottages) in the locale as well as detached and semi-detached properties from the 1920s and 1930s. The town centre also has modern flats.

Large Victorian and Edwardian houses can be found around Burgh Heath Road. You can also find large detached 1920s houses there and around the Ewell Downs Road. St Martin's Avenue has larger modern houses.

The streets around Ashley Road have very attractive Victorian cottages and you find Arts & Crafts houses from the 1920s and 1930s around the Wilmerhatch Lane area.

Five new estates have been built in the last 12 years, namely Manor Park, Livingstone Park, Clarendon Park, Elements and Noble Park, with a total of more than 1,800 homes. Some of these have been sold under shared ownership terms.

According to the UK Government's Public Health England, much of Epsom is in a raised Radon area, in streets such as Dudley Grove and Woodcote Close, with properties built there having a higher probability than average of experiencing ground Radon emissions.

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.
Hair line cracks in rendering do not always mean you have subsidence. The surveyor should review them and make comments to confirm whether they feel you require a subsidence survey by a structural engineer or if these are typical of rendered elevations, that are caused by thermal movement (otherwise known as 'shrinkage') and are not considered a significant concern.

The following are roads where there are small signs of radon gas which you may wish to get further checked via a radon search through your solicitor:

SurreySurrey is located in the south east of England and is well known for its high property prices and leafy areas. Guildford is the county town, however Surrey County Council can be found just up the A3 in the neighbouring town Kingston Upon Thames. It was in Dorking in Surrey at the White Horse where Charles Dickens wrote much of his Pickwick Papers and apparently based many of the characters on local people

The University of Surrey can be found in Guildford, however Surrey also hosts the Royal Holloway University of London (Egham), University of Law & Kingston University. HG Wells, writer of War of the Worlds, lived at Horsell Common in Woking in Surrey when he wrote the book and this is where, in the book, the Martians first land on Earth.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A Home Buyers Survey is completed by a qualified RICS surveyor and delivers a visual inspection of the property in Epsom and the surrounding garden. The aim of the survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is to identify potential risks or defects that you may not know are there such as cracks or damage to the structure of the property, subsidence, damp and infestations.

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 Epsom 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.

Why should I have a RICS Survey?

The survey should assist the buyer by flagging any concerns identified with the property which may allow them to make a reasoned and informed decision on whether to proceed with their purchase.

The report will detail any repairs or replacements identified and will also advise where further specialist advice may be necessary.

The property is inspected both internally and externally however the surveyor is only able to inspect areas where access has been provided and visibility has not been impeded.

If a buyer has any specific concerns they have identified, these should be flagged with the surveyor prior to inspection so that they can confirm that these can form part of the report and comment on them accordingly.
