Home Buyer Survey tips for buying in Worthing


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.

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.
