Top tips for a Redhill Home Buyers Survey


Redhill town developed originally from a toll road which opened in 1818 and the more so when the railway arrived in 1844. There are some period properties in the area, but many were knocked down in the 1960s. The St John's area, however, has many period cottages and Crosslands Road has large Edwardian houses.

There are many modern developments, such as Water Colour, which has new flats and houses built in the New England style.

Properties built close to the Redhill Brook in Redhill, particularly around the Earlsbrook area, in streets such as Earlsbrook Road and St John's Road, are subject to flood alerts and warnings 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 Redhill 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 Shire Place, Redhill, RH1 6DN for example, flagged up that the property was built within 4km of an area licensed for onshore energy exploration and production.
According to the UK Government's Public Health England, some parts of Redhill, including streets such as Asylum Arch Road and Talfourd Way, are in a raised radon area, with properties built there having a higher probability than average of experiencing ground Radon emissions.

The raised Radon area has a maximum radon potential of 3 – 5% (the percentage is the chance of a property being built where Radon emissions might measure above the action level).

If you are concerned that a property you are buying is in an area of raised Radon, please click to visit Public Health England's UK Radon Map. Click also to find out more about Radon, Radon property searches and much more.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A RICS 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, incredibly important when you are considering buying a home in Redhill.

NB If you're a first time buyer, you might wish to click on What is a House Survey to find out more, including what happens during the inspection.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

When you get a mortgage for your property in Redhill your mortgage lender requires you to pay for a mortgage valuation survey of the property. The aim of this survey is to give the mortgage lender reassurance that the property is worth what you are paying. Although you pay for the mortgage valuation survey, it belongs to the mortgage lender and often you won't be allowed to see it.

It is paramount that when buying a property you get your own HomeBuyers Survey that reports on defects or potential issues with the property; either a HomeBuyers Report or a Building Survey. Buying without a survey could leave you exposed to any repair costs or defects that you didn't spot. Defects such as subsidence can cost thousands to repair and would affect your future sale price if not repaired.


A HomeBuyer Survey will give you reassurance to buy your new home without worrying about what is in the closet. If you aren't sure what you should do or which HomeBuyer Survey to get call us and we'll talk you through the options - this is what we do!
