Top tips for a Kent Home Buyers Survey


Kent is an affluent county with a large coastline and has a series of ridges and valleys running east-west across the county. Areas where it adjoins London are part of the urban sprawl, such as Dartford; areas along the coast are dominated by several large coastal towns, such as Folkestone and Dover, and the mid-part of Kent has urban areas and a fair few rural ones.

Sevenoaks, Maidstone, Ashford, and Folkestone are built on greensand while Tonbridge and Tunbridge Wells are built on sandstone. Dartford, Gravesend, the Medway towns, Sittingbourne, Faversham, Canterbury, Deal, and Dover are built on chalk.

Canterbury Cathedral is the United Kingdom's metropolitan cathedral; it was founded in AD 598 and displays architecture from all periods. There are nine Anglo-Saxon churches in Kent. Rochester Cathedral is England's second oldest cathedral, the present building built in the Early English Style.

Kent has three unique vernacular architecture forms: the Oast house, the Wealden hall house, and Kentish peg-tiles.

Local Tip 1

Local Tip 3
Properties in Kent built in close proximity to the path of the River Rother and the River Medway, the Great Stour and other water courses have been 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 areas of Kent, including around Rochester and Chatham and particularly including a large area of land between Folkestone and Dover and extending northwards (including Aylesham for example and streets such as Spinney Lane in Aylesham), are in a raised radon area, 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.
Some properties in Kent may be built in areas where there are natural cavities nearby, which can affect ground stability.


A recent environmental search carried out for a property in Tubbenden Lane near Orpington indicated that there were natural cavities located within 250m of the property, creating a moderate potential for natural ground instability in the area within 50m of the property.

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