Top tips for a Bognor Regis Home Buyers Survey


Bognor Regis is a seaside town on the south coast in West Sussex. It developed greatly when the railway arrived in 1864, which led to many large Victorian houses being built by wealthy people of the time, many of which are still standing.

The town developed steadily in the 20th century, with both private and municipal housing being built and then patchily after World War 2: in the 1960s a high-rise block of flats was built on land just north-west of the High Street. 

In the three decades between 1950 and 1980 much residential development took place to the west and north of the town, since then mostly in-fill development has taken place, predominantly redeveloping land on brownfield sites that had formerly been used for commercial business.

New developments include terrace houses in North Bersted amd detached and semi-detached houses in Middleton-on-Sea.

Properties in Bognor Regis which are built very close to the various water courses of the Aldingbourne Rife, in streets such as Ivycroft Crescent and Highcroft Crescent, are in an area 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, some parts of Bognor Regis, including streets such as Gainsbord Road and Ockley Road, 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).

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.
A recent envirosearch stated that a property in Westloats Gardens, Bognor Regis, West Sussex, PO21 5LG, was within 50m of an area with potential for natural ground instability.

The British Geological Survey has assessed the area of search as having moderate potential for natural ground instability. This does not necessarily mean there is cause for concern in terms of the property's stability. Active subsidence will be dependent on local conditions, such as the proximity of trees or areas where trees have been removed, which require an inspection of the site to identify the nature of the ground on which the property is built. A house buyers survey is advised to look for signs of property damage that may indicate poor natural ground conditions.

West SussexWest Sussex along with East Sussex used to make up the larger ceremonial county of Sussex. Land in West Sussex is varied and is part coastal, part downland and part wealden.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

    Our RICS Surveyor, during a Home Buyers Survey in Bognor Regis, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, 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 is non-intrusive.

How do I arrange access?

On instruction, we take a few key details from you, one of which being the details of the estate agent managing the property.

We then organise access with the estate agent and determine whether they hold keys to the property or if the property is accessed via the owner (vendor).

We then let the estate agent know the surveyor's intended arrival time and finalise the survey date.

In the event that the property is accessed through the vendor, gaining access can be tricky.

Often the vendor will have to find time away from work/private life in order to accommodate the survey which can lead to having to revise the date of survey.

Often in worst case scenarios (i.e. the vendor being on holiday), the vendor can leave their keys with the estate agents or a neighbour who are then the port of call to arrange access.
