Home Buyer Survey - CoronaVirus

Top tips for a Norbiton Home Buyers Survey


Norbiton has been a host to the Anglo-Saxon English heritage and the evidence of these is the vast quantity of Victorian and Edwardian family properties. 

Some examples of these can be witnessed in Kingston Old Town which has been established since the 12th century. These Victorian properties can also be spotted walking down Thames Street and Eden Street. 

Given the average age of the properties and the build-up of potential defects with the property, we would always recommend a level 3 Building Survey to identify any of these defects that could have arisen over the years. There was rapid expansion during the 19th century in and around the Norbiton area, especially with the introduction of new roads and improved rail communications. 

From the Apple Market to Church Street, it is clear to see the remains of the old market place. This can be noticed from the later origins of these buildings and the smaller plots these have been built on.

Norbiton is located relatively close to the Thames water, thus the Norbiton area would be at risk of flooding and has a flood warning in force. It would be advisable to get a flood risk report (click for more details).
Due to being located comparatively near the Thames barrier there is the risk of flooding in Norbiton. Areas where sewer flooding is known to occur should not necessarily be seen as areas to avoid development as new sewerage capacity may be able to be provided to alleviate the problem. 

A HomeBuyer report can alleviate your stress with this as it will search the entire premise for damp as well as check the drainage.
A recent Environmental property search carried out for a property in Porchester Road, Kingston Upon Thames, KT1 3PS revealed there has been some recent cases of contaminative activities in the surrounding area. The activities could range from pollution to air, land or water; storage or disposal of radioactive substances; or storage of hazardous or explosive materials.

SurreySurrey is located in the south east of England and is well known for its high property prices and leafy areas. Guildford is the county town, however Surrey County Council can be found just up the A3 in the neighbouring town Kingston Upon Thames. It was in Dorking in Surrey at the White Horse where Charles Dickens wrote much of his Pickwick Papers and apparently based many of the characters on local people

The University of Surrey can be found in Guildford, however Surrey also hosts the Royal Holloway University of London (Egham), University of Law & Kingston University. HG Wells, writer of War of the Worlds, lived at Horsell Common in Woking in Surrey when he wrote the book and this is where, in the book, the Martians first land on Earth.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

Our RICS Surveyor, during a Home Buyers Survey in Norbiton, inspects both the inside and the outside of your property and searches in particular for subsidence, damp, infestations and any cracks or other damage to the property.

The procedure, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is non-intrusive.

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

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.
