Top tips for a Sevenoaks Home Buyers Survey


Sevenoaks is a town in Kent which hosts Knole House, constructed in the 15th century and Sevenoaks School, founded in 1432. The railway arrived in the 1860s, which caused the town to expand.

You can find many Victorian properties in and around the area taking the form of large detached houses, semi-detached houses, terrace housing and cottages. 

There are many semi-detached houses built in the interwar period, as can be seen in Baden Powell Road, and estates such as The Stables, built in the 1920s, has excellent mews houses. Bluebell Farm in New Street is one example of a new development where the original properties were farm buildings.

Properties built close to the River Darent on the northern edges of Sevenoaks, in streets such as Robyns Way, are subject to flood alerts and warnings 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).
Some properties in Sevenoaks may be located in an area which is subject to a Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL).

A recent local authority search for a property in Bradbourne Park Road, Sevenoaks TN13 3LH revealed that it was within a CIL area.

The Community Infrastructure Levy is a planning charge, introduced by the Planning Act 2008 as a tool for local authorities in England and Wales to help deliver infrastructure to support the development of their area. It came into force on 6 April 2010 through the Community Infrastructure Levy Regulations 2010. Development may be liable for a charge under the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL), if your local planning authority has chosen to set a charge in its area.

Properties sometimes have issues with ground stability in certain locations in Sevenoaks.

In a recent environmental search, taken out for a property in Greenlands Road, Kemsing, Sevenoaks, TN15 6PQ, 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."

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 Sevenoaks 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

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