Top tips for a Dartford Home Buyers Survey


Dartford's town centre has been redeveloped extensively in recent times, although the town's history is a long one, so it has architecture from many different periods.

New Town developed in the latter part of the 19th century, when many Victorian terraces and cottage were built, then a number of private housing estates were built in the Edwardian period, such as The Swaisland Estate (off Dartford Road), The Downs, Fulwich and Priory Park. The White Hill Estate and housing around Havelock Road occurred after the outbreak of the first world war.

Many private houses were built in the 1920s and 30s, particularly around Devonshire Avenue and Windsor Drive. The council's Heath Lane Estate was built in 1934 and the much larger Temple Hill Estate was built in 1947. 

You can still find a number of properties inspired by the Arts & Crafts movement but a large majority of housing in the town consists of semi-detached properties of relatively standard construction, even if made to look slightly different from the outside. You can also find a number of bungalows.

There are a number of new developments in the area, such as Langley Square in The Knight aand Langley Square in Central Road (purpose-built flats), Temple Hill and Joyce Green Lane (terrace houses) and The Bridge (semi-detached houses).

Dwellings built close by to the River Darent in Dartford, such as in Mill Road and Shirehall Road, are subject to flood warnings and 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).
According to the UK Government's Public Health England, some parts of Dartford, including streets such as Lavinia Road and Waldeck 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.
Raised levels of noise pollution from road traffic are at their highest along the paths of the M25 and the A2 and particularly where these intersect. This pollution also affects nearby roads such as Gothic Close and Curates Walk.

Raised levels of noise pollution from rail traffic occur along the route of the railway which passes through Dartford Station, affecting nearby streets such as Fulwich Road and Knights Manor Way.

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 Dartford 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:
