Top tips for a Epsom Home Buyers Survey


Epsom has plenty of excellent Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian houses (and also Victorian cottages) in the locale as well as detached and semi-detached properties from the 1920s and 1930s. The town centre also has modern flats.

Large Victorian and Edwardian houses can be found around Burgh Heath Road. You can also find large detached 1920s houses there and around the Ewell Downs Road. St Martin's Avenue has larger modern houses.

The streets around Ashley Road have very attractive Victorian cottages and you find Arts & Crafts houses from the 1920s and 1930s around the Wilmerhatch Lane area.

Five new estates have been built in the last 12 years, namely Manor Park, Livingstone Park, Clarendon Park, Elements and Noble Park, with a total of more than 1,800 homes. Some of these have been sold under shared ownership terms.

According to the UK Government's Public Health England, much of Epsom is in a raised Radon area, in streets such as Dudley Grove and Woodcote Close, with properties built there having a higher probability than average of experiencing ground Radon emissions.

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.
Hair line cracks in rendering do not always mean you have subsidence. The surveyor should review them and make comments to confirm whether they feel you require a subsidence survey by a structural engineer or if these are typical of rendered elevations, that are caused by thermal movement (otherwise known as 'shrinkage') and are not considered a significant concern.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

Our RICS Surveyor, during a Home Buyers Survey in Epsom, 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.

NB If you're a first time buyer, you might wish to click on What is a House Survey to find out more, including what happens during the inspection.

If the Home Buyers Survey flags up any of these defects then our surveyor explains what you need to do to get further advice on how to investigate them and get It resolved. 

If you are concerned about your property in Epsom has subsidence, or any other defects then you MUST get a Home Buyers Survey as the costs for repairing the defects can run into thousands of pounds.

If you can identify the defect before you purchase then you can get quotes for fixing it and either share the costs with the seller, or, in worst case examples, choose not to proceed.

Does a surveyor use a ladder during a survey?

Surveyors come equipped with an array of tools and devices in order for them to diagnose and report on any defects internally and externally affecting the property that the client is looking to purchase.

Usually when clients ask whether a surveyor comes equipped with a ladder there is normally concern with a roof or a noted issue with the roofing.

If you do have a concern then make sure you highlight this to the surveyor prior to their inspection to ensure it’s specifically reported on.

Your surveyor can come with a three meter ladder to access flat roofs or gain access to advantage points to assess harder to reach areas in conjunction with utilising telescopic camera mounts to document areas which are defective.
