Top tips for a Gravesend Home Buyers Survey


Gravesend is in north Kent on the banks of the Thames and has strong historical associations and a maritime history. In the 19th century the town developed more as major cement and paper manufacturers moved into the area and the railway arrived.

There are surviving Victorian properties in the town centre and some Georgian properties. Gravesend was bombed heavily in the 2nd World War so much of the housing was built in the post-war period and later, and semi-detached and terrace houses are the most commonly-seen properties..

The Riverview Park estate was built in 1956, although King's Farm was mostly built in the 1920s. Christianfields was completely rebuilt between 2007 and 2013. New build developments include Dalefield in Dalefield Road, which consists mainly of 2, 3 and 4 bedroom houses, and Culvers court in Fenners Marsh, a low-rise flat block offering shared ownership terms.

Properties to the north of Gravesend adjoining the River Thames, such as those in West Street, 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 Gravesend, including streets such as Milroy Avenue and Beatrice Gardens, 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 Search for a property in Highview, Vigo, Gravesend, DA13 0UY noted that the property was within 250m of an area likely to be impacted by environmental constraints (ancient and semi-natural woodland). Areas which have been designated as having environmental or historical importance may impose constraints on property or land developments or alterations.

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