Top tips for a Worthing Home Buyers Survey


Worthing is a large seaside town in West Sussex located at the foot of the South Downs. It has Britain's greatest concentration of Stone Age flint mines. And the Iron Age hill fort of cissbury Ring is one of Britain's largest.

It was a small hamlet until the late 18th century when it became a Georgian seaside resort and it underwent dramatic population growth both in the early 19th century as the hamlet had newly become a town and again in the 1880s. The town experienced further growth in the 1930s, and again when new estates were built, using prisoner of war labour, to the west of the town from 1948.

The main driver of population growth in Worthing during the 1990s and first decade of the 21st century has been in-migration into Worthing; in particular Worthing is the most popular destination for people moving from the nearby city of Brighton and Hove, with significant numbers also moving to the borough from London.

Worthing has a fine mix of properties from large Georgian houses to Victorian and Edwardian terraces to early-20th century and interwar estates consisting of semi-detached and terrace houses and housing development has continued up to the present date.

New build developments include detached houses in Sea Lane in Goring on Sea, semi-detached homes in Yeoman Chase (where Help to Buy is available), bungalows in Coombe Rise, Findon Valley and apartments in Hurst Grange, Parkfield Road.

Properties in Worthing which are built in close proximity to the coast and the Ferring Rife in streets such as Langbury Lane and Marine Drive, are in areas where flood warnings and alerts are issued 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).
According to the UK Government's Public Health England, in some areas of Worthing, including streets such as Harting Close and Crossways Avenue, 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 1-3% (the percentage is the chance of a property being built where Radon emissions might measure above the action level).

Properties in some areas of Worthing may be affected by environmental constraints.

A recent environmental search carried out for a property in Harting Close revealed that the property was within 250m of an area likely to be impacted by environmental constraints. These included National Park - South Downs.

Areas which have been designated as having environmental or historical importance may impose constraints on property or land developments or alterations.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

Mortgage lenders in England and Wales require you to a valuation for the property you are buying so that they can gauge whether the amount you are paying is appropriate. This survey is called a Mortgage Valuation. The mortgage valuation is paid for by you however the results aren't always shared with you as the survey belongs to the mortgage lender. On top of which it doesn't include any survey into potential defects or structural issues that are too often found in properties.

There is also a degree of confusion because the mortgage valuation is referred to as a survey and so many buyers assume this is what is meant by 'have you done your survey?' It is important that when buying a property in Worthing that you arrange 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 at the mercy of undetected defects such as rising damp which can cost thousands to repair and would affect your future sale price if not repaired.
