Top tips for a Caterham Home Buyers Survey


Caterham is an affluent London commuter town in Surrey. Its church of St Lawrence is of Norman construction (established around 1095). The town expanded in 1856 with the arrival of the railway. The Church of St Mary the Virgin was built in 1866.

Housing is from various eras, although there are more period properties in Caterham on the Hill than in Caterham Valley, the latter of which has a few early Victorian outlying homes. Caterham Valley has more detached homes than semi-detached and many of these are relatively large.

There are new build developments in the area, such as in Whyteleafe Road and The Alders, a development of detached houses in this road, offers Help to Buy.

All properties in Caterham, including those in streets such as Harestone Valley Road and Tupwood Lane, are in an area which is 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 Caterham 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 Markville Gardens, Caterham, Surrey, CR3 6RG for example, flagged up that the property was built within 4km of a well used for energy exploration or extraction.
According to the UK Government's Public Health England, some parts of Caterham, including streets such as St Mary's Mount and Harestone Valley 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.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A Home Buyers Survey is completed by a qualified RICS surveyor and delivers a visual inspection of the property in Caterham and the surrounding garden. The aim of the survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is to identify potential risks or defects that you may not know are there such as cracks or damage to the structure of the property, subsidence, damp and infestations.

Level 2 HomeBuyer Report with a Valuation

A HomeBuyer Report, also known as a Home Buyers Survey, is generally suitable for:

  • Bungalows
  • Flats
  • Standard construction houses

The majority of Caterham's leasehold flats require only a RICS HomeBuyer Report but for any Victorian conversions, a Building Survey may well be required.
