Top tips for a Horsham Home Buyers Survey


Horsham is a market town on the fringe of the Weald in Sussex. The Causeway, south of the shopping centre, has a mix of medieval, Georgian and later Victorian houses.

The town centre offers affordable Victorian cottages and newly developed flats. The rest of the town has a mix of large detached and semi-detached Victorian houses as well as newer homes, ranging from estates of 1950s and 1960s properties to places such as Rookwood Park, where large modern executive houses were built in the late 1990s. 

You can find 5-bedroom detached Victorian homes in Richmond Road and Wimblehurst Road and large detached 1920s houses in Kerves Lane.

There are period village properties in the nearby villages, the most desirable of which are Slinfold, Warnham, Wisborough Green, Loxwood, Mannings Heath, Rudgwick and Slaugham.

New build developments include Northbrook Court in Hurst Road which is a new block of 2-bedroom flats.

Properties in Horsham which are built very close to the River Arun, in streets such as Tanbridge Park and Fordingbridge Close, are in an area where flood warnings and alerts are issued 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).
Some properties in Horsham are located nearby to areas to be explored for their energy potential by the oil & gas industry – they must be licensed by the Oil and Gas Authority – and such exploration includes areas subject to hydraulic fracturing ("fracking") investigation.

A recent environmental search carried out for a property in York Close for example, flagged up that the property was:

  • built within 4km of an area licensed for onshore energy exploration and production;
  • built within 4km of an area that has been offered for licensing for the onshore exploration of oil and gas by the Oil and Gas Authority; and
  • built within 4km of a well used for energy exploration or extraction.
Your RICS surveyor inspects drains during a survey of a property in Horsham, 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 Drainline Southern Ltd.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A Home Buyers Survey is a visual inspection of the grounds and the internal/external structure of the property and identifies defects such as cracks or damage to the structure of the property, subsidence, damp and infestations.

Some of these defects you may not even see or know what to look for which makes getting a Home Buyers Survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, if you are considering buying a property in Horsham, incredibly important.

How long does a RICS Building Survey take?

RICS Surveyors often only have one or two inspections a day to ensure they allocate adequate time to assess a property for its defects and issues.

On average our surveyors will spend two to three hours on a standard sized home to complete the full Level 3 RICS Building Survey, however, this can vary for a number of reasons.

It may be that there has been major works done to the property or a major defect is discovered and requires further investigation or access to all areas of the property is not immediately available. This is why our surveyors do not operate with time constraints – they stay on site as long as they need to complete the full inspection.
