Top tips for a Leatherhead Home Buyers Survey


Leatherhead is a town in Surrey. It runs near to the path of Stane Street, an old Roman road, and its parish church was restored in the Victorian era. The Running Horse pub dates back to 1403.

The town expanded considerably in the mid-19th century when 2 railways arrived at the town. The private St John's School was built in the 1870s.

There are some Georgian properties and more Victorian properties in the locale, although much of the housing was built in the early 20th century and then much more recently. 

The centre of the town was redeveloped from the 1970s and early 1980s and there are a fair number of new developments, such as in Kingston Road.

Properties in Leatherhead which are located in close proximity to the River Mole and its tributaries, channels and feeders, in streets such as Cannon Grove, Cannon Way, Cobham Road and Mill Lane, are in areas which 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).
Properties in some areas of Leatherhead may be affected by environmental constraints.

A recent environmental search carried out for a property in Guildford Road, KT22 9DS revealed that the property was within 250m of an area likely to be impacted by environmental constraints. These included Ancient Woodland and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty - Surrey Hills.

Areas which have been designated as having environmental or historical importance may impose constraints on property or land developments or alterations.
Properties sometimes have issues with ground stability in certain locations in Leatherhead.

In a recent environmental search, taken out for a property in Guildford Road, KT22 9DS, the report noted that there was a moderate potential for natural ground instability within 250m of the property.

This should not be taken to mean that the property in question actually suffered/suffers from subsidence however as "active subsidence will be dependent on local conditions, such as the proximity of trees or areas where trees have been removed, which require an inspection of the site to identify the nature of the ground on which the property is built."

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

It is a common misconception that 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 seller. A mortgage valuation is conducted by the lender’s surveyor to assess the value of the property and they do not provide a detailed report on structural defects.

A HomeBuyers Survey details 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 gives you the evidence to potentially 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 01483 802 485 to get the best HomeBuyers survey for your property in Leatherhead.
