Top tips for a Richmond Home Buyers Survey


Richmond has many fine period properties as well as Victorian detached and terrace houses, cottages (notably in the Alberts, south of Sheen Road), period conversions and, particularly in the Ham area, modern flats.

New developments are rare but London Square has been converting the Star and Garter home into 1 to 4 bedroom flats. Ham has period houses and cottages and some cheaper flats. 

Manor Grove in North Sheen was actually London's first council estate, built in the 1890s and, in keeping with houses built in the late Victorian period, these houses are substantial and were built to last.

There are also modern, shared ownership flats available such as in Burlington Road in New Malden.

Local Tip 1

Buildings close to the banks of the River Thames in Richmond have been subject to flood alerts from time to time and roads such as Petersham Road, Riverside, Friars Lane and Water Lane are areas where flood warnings have also been issued.

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).
Properties sometimes have issues with ground stability in certain locations in Richmond.


In a recent environmental search, taken out for a property in Upper Richmond Road, the report noted that there was a moderate potential for natural ground instability within 50m of the property.


This should not be taken to mean that the property in question actually suffered/suffers from subsidence however as "active subsidence will be dependent on local conditions, such as the proximity of trees or areas where trees have been removed, which require an inspection of the site to identify the nature of the ground on which the property is built."

Some properties in Richmond are built in designated smoke control areas.


Under the terms of Section 20 of the Clean Air Act 1993, smoke emissions from all buildings are prohibited unless an exemption has been made by the Secretary of State under Section 21 of the Act.

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