Home Buyer Survey tips for buying in Midhurst


Midhurst is in West Sussex and is a market town. It hosts St Ann's Castle – or a least its foundations – which dates back to Norman times, from about 1120.

Some of the buildings in the Old Town are Tudor in origin and the Spread Eagle Hotel dates back to the 15th century. North Street has many Tudor buildings which have had Georgian and classical facades added during the 17th and 18th centuries.

There are many Victorian and Edwardian terraces around the main routes out of the town and the mid to late 20th century saw considerable house building to the town's south, around the areas of Fairway, Holmbush and Little Midhurst.

New build developments include large detached houses, duplexes and apartments in Kings Drive and houses of various sizes in Lamberts Lane.

Which walls does the surveyor report on?

RICS surveyors assess the accessible areas of a property of which the roof structure, ceilings, walls and partitions are included. These areas are normally divided up into internal and external sections within the final report.

Often a surveyor will comment on the building materials of the walls or partitions, noting any structural movement or signs of subsidence and on any signs of damp/rising damp.

Also, if requested before the inspection, a surveyor can often provide their professional opinion on works you may have planned for the property.
