Top tips for a Dartford Home Buyers Survey


Dartford's town centre has been redeveloped extensively in recent times, although the town's history is a long one, so it has architecture from many different periods.

New Town developed in the latter part of the 19th century, when many Victorian terraces and cottage were built, then a number of private housing estates were built in the Edwardian period, such as The Swaisland Estate (off Dartford Road), The Downs, Fulwich and Priory Park. The White Hill Estate and housing around Havelock Road occurred after the outbreak of the first world war.

Many private houses were built in the 1920s and 30s, particularly around Devonshire Avenue and Windsor Drive. The council's Heath Lane Estate was built in 1934 and the much larger Temple Hill Estate was built in 1947. 

You can still find a number of properties inspired by the Arts & Crafts movement but a large majority of housing in the town consists of semi-detached properties of relatively standard construction, even if made to look slightly different from the outside. You can also find a number of bungalows.

There are a number of new developments in the area, such as Langley Square in The Knight aand Langley Square in Central Road (purpose-built flats), Temple Hill and Joyce Green Lane (terrace houses) and The Bridge (semi-detached houses).

Dwellings built close by to the River Darent in Dartford, such as in Mill Road and Shirehall Road, 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 Dartford, including streets such as Lavinia Road and Waldeck Road 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 road traffic are at their highest along the paths of the M25 and the A2 and particularly where these intersect. This pollution also affects nearby roads such as Gothic Close and Curates Walk.

Raised levels of noise pollution from rail traffic occur along the route of the railway which passes through Dartford Station, affecting nearby streets such as Fulwich Road and Knights Manor Way.

LondonGreater London is an area which contains London, the capital of the United Kingdom (which itself centres on the Cities of London and Westminster) and a number of surrounding boroughs which are administered as London boroughs and which are the overall executive responsibility of the Mayor of London. It contains a large number of constituencies, each represented by an MP and it should be noted that these are not the same as nor even always continguous with the borders of the boroughs.

Many parts of Greater London were originally administered by the counties which surround London and these counties are often called the home counties. Enfield, for example, used to be classed as being part of Middlesex, but is now near the northern border of Greater London. Greater London's borders often coincide with a zone of 'green belt': areas where it has been decided that open spaces, parks, forests and wildlife reserves should act as a buffer against urban sprawl. London has numerous landmarks, anything from Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament to Karl Marx's grave in Highgate Cemetery.

Greater London contains more than 9 million inhabitants, a number growing daily, and as this is approximately 1/7 of the population of the UK, it can be seen that Greater Londoners have a large influence on the rest of the country politically and this is enhanced by the concentration of skilled workers gravitating towards the capital.

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 Dartford 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.

NB If you're a first time buyer, you might wish to click on What is a House Survey to find out more, including what happens during the inspection.

Should any issues be flagged up in the Home Buyers Survey, our surveyor will tell you what you need to do to get more in-depth advice on the extent and seriousness of the issue and what needs to be done to remedy it. 

If you are worried about a crack or cracks or indeed any other defects that you think your property in Dartford has, we strongly recommend you get a Home Buyers Survey as the cost of remedying the problem might snowball into many thousands of pounds further down the line.

Why does the surveyor need to be local

It is important to get a surveyor to attend the property who is local to your area.

A local surveyor will have extensive local knowledge of the area and will know if there are any issues that occur on properties locally.

A local surveyor will also be aware of the market conditions in the area and it is more than likely that they have surveyed properties of a similar condition before.

It is also more efficient to work with a surveyor who is local to Dartford or who is used to completing surveys in Greater London as driving for several hours to complete a survey can delay the report turnaround.
