Top tips for a Chatham Home Buyers Survey


Chatham is one of the Medway towns in North Kent in South East England and has a maritime history, having for 400 years (up to 1984) one of the largest naval dockyards.

It has excellent Georgian houses along Church Lane, New Road, Prospect Row and Mansion Row in and around the docks as well as in Brompton Village and large detached Victorian and Edwardian houses on Maidstone Road.

There are 2 and 3-bedroom Victorian terrace houses south of the High Street and plend of houses from the 1930s onwards including South Chatham's larged detached houses.

St Mary's Island is a new riverside village of modern houses, some of which have been designed with clapboard cladding in the New England style, and there are new flats overlooking the docks.

There are large modern detached houses in The Walderslade and Blue Bell Hill areas.

New build developments include detached bungalows in Cossington Road and detached houses in City Way.

Local Tip 1
Local Tip 2
Local Tip 3
Properties in Chatham built in close proximity to the River Medway, in streets such Medway Street and Dorset Way, 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, Chatham, some parts of Chatham, including streets such as Clover Street and Batchelor Street, 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 Environmental Report indicated that a property in Bentley Close, Chatham, ME5 8UH, was within 50m of an area with potential for 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.

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