Top tips for a Lewes Home Buyers Survey


Lewes is East Sussex's county town and it used to be for the whole of Sussex. It is an historic county town situated in a gap in the South Downs and hosts Lewes Castle, built in 1069. It developed particularly in the 17th and 18th centuries and saw a further spur to this when it first hosted a railway junction in 1846.

The ancient town's main thoroughfare is The High Street, connecting Eastgate to West-Out and The St John's or Pells area, north of the town's original wall boundary, has several 19th century streets. 
More modern housing estates can be found in the areas of South Malling, Wallands, Cranedown on the Kingston Road and Lansdown. Keere Street hosts a timber-framed bookshop which dates back to the 15th century.

Lewes' centre, according to most experts, has a very high standard of regional vernacular architecture and choice of era-specific construction materials and techniques.

New build developments include terrace houses and townhouses in Chandlers Wharf, particularly around the South Street area and the semi-detached and terrace houses around the High Street in the Lewes Vaults area.

Local Tip 3
Properties in Lewes built in the close vicinity of the River Ouse and the Pellbrook Cut, in streets such as Landport Road and Pellbrook Road, 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, some parts of Lewes, East Sussex, including streets such as Western Road A277 and Priory 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.
Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the Lewes area mainly centre around the main road – A27, and also affect nearby roads and streets such as Cranedown, Cluny Street and Morley Close. Rail noise pollution accompanies the railway line which passes through Lewes and the railway passes very close to the A27 around Kingston Road making this the area where noise pollution is normally highest on average..

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