Top tips for a Horley Home Buyers Survey


Horley is a town in Surrey and hosts Thunderfield Castle, a 12th century ring and bailey castle. It developed steadily when the railway arrived in 1841 up until 1950 but since 1950, its population has doubled as it has become popular with London commuters.

It has a considerable proportion of detached properties (although not as many as semi-detached) and some of these are period, such as the Georgian houses in Vicarage Lane, although many are modern redevelopments of older properties such as can be found in Smallfield.

There are Victorian semi-detached properties in Lumley Road and Albert Road and interwar period semi-detached and terrace houses around Reigate Road in Hookwood. There are large numbers of semi-detached properties from the 1970s and later, such as can be found in Meath Green and Landen Park.

What happens if the conveyancing falls through before the survey takes place will I get a full refund?

If you need to cancel the survey for any reason at all you need to ensure that you have given the surveyor 48 hours’ notice before the survey takes place. If the surveyor has 48 or more hours’ notice then you will be provided with a full refund.

If however you only give the surveyor 24 hours’ notice then there will be a penalty of £50 due to the fact that the surveyor will not be able to fill that slot in time.

If you cancel on the same day as the Survey Date, or any time after the surveyor has attended the property then no refund is due however the report will be delivered in accordance with the terms agreed with the surveyor.
