Top tips for a Reigate Home Buyers Survey


Reigate was given to a Norman baron after the Battle of Hastings, after which a castle was built there and canons of the Order of St Augustine established a priory there in the 13th century.

You can find properties from many periods in the town – there are large 1920s houses, for example, in the Wray Common area and there is a mix of Victorian, Edwardian and later houses with some new blocks of flats built along Reigate Hill.

You can find period houses and cottages in the villages scattered along the A25, such as Betchworth, Nutfield and Bletchingley.

New build developments can be seen in Alma Road and Furzefield Road and Help to Buy is available for some town house developments in Albert Road North.

Properties in Reigate which are located in close proximity to the River Mole and its tributaries and feeders, in streets such as Roebuck Close and Bancroft Court, are in areas which are subject to flood 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).
Some properties in Reigate may be located in an area which is subject to a Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL).

A recent local authority search for a property in Hornbeam Road, Reigate, RH2 7NN revealed that it was within a CIL area.

The Community Infrastructure Levy is a planning charge, introduced by the Planning Act 2008 as a tool for local authorities in England and Wales to help deliver infrastructure to support the development of their area. It came into force on 6 April 2010 through the Community Infrastructure Levy Regulations 2010. Development may be liable for a charge under the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL), if your local planning authority has chosen to set a charge in its area.

When a RICS surveyor carries out either a building survey or homebuyer report on a property in the Reigate area, they will switch the lights on and off but not test the whole electrical system. If they suspect that there is an electrical problem, they will recommend that you consult a local electrical contractor.

A local electrician near the Reigate area is DJP Electrical, 6 Castle Drive, Reigate, Surrey, RH2 8DQ.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A Home Buyers Survey identifies many different defects or potential risks that can be found within a property and is an essential part of any home buying process. The survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is completed by a Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) registered Surveyor so they are fully trained to provide you with the detail you need to give you the salient facts when you are looking to buy your home in Reigate.

Should any issues be flagged up in the Home Buyers Survey, our surveyor will tell you what you need to do to get more in-depth advice on the extent and seriousness of the issue affecting your property in Reigate and what needs to be done to remedy it.

If you are worried about a crack or cracks or indeed any other defects that you think your property has, we strongly recommend you get a Home Buyers Survey as the cost of remedying the problem might snowball into many thousands of pounds further down the line.

Can a RICS surveyor comment on the removal of a load bearing wall?

If the seller has removed a wall, or you are planning to remove a wall in the property then a RICS surveyor cannot definitively confirm if the wall is or is not load bearing because their inspection is only visual. The surveyor may give their opinion, however it will come with a caveat that you should obtain an intrusive assessment to confirm.

Before the removal of a load bearing wall, you should always instruct a local structural engineer in Reigate to provide their definitive opinion on if the wall is or is not a load bearing wall.
