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.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A RICS Home Buyers Survey involves an examination of the structure of the inside and the outside of a property aimed at pinpointing issues such as subsidence, damp, cracks, infestation and damage.

The survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is non-intrusive and is highly recommended if you are looking at buying a property in Horley.

If you are concerned about your property in Horley having any other defects then you MUST get a Home Buyers Survey as the costs for repairing the defects can run into thousands of pounds. 

If you can identify the defect before you purchase then you can get quotes for fixing it and either share the costs with the seller, or, in worst case examples, choose not to proceed.

Can you attend the Survey with the surveyor?

Most surveyors do not allow the client on site whilst carrying out their inspection. They have a long list of defects that they need to check for and they cannot be distracted from the job in hand as they can be held to account for any missed defects.

The surveyors' professional indemnity insurance does not cover for bringing any third party on site with them while they are completing their inspection, therefore, in the event of any damage being sited by a vendor while the survey is taking place, the surveyor would be liable and uninsured.

On the day of the survey if you have any concerns you can make the surveyor aware of this so they can pay special attention to these areas during their inspection.
