Top tips for a Norbiton Home Buyers Survey


Norbiton has been a host to the Anglo-Saxon English heritage and the evidence of these is the vast quantity of Victorian and Edwardian family properties. 

Some examples of these can be witnessed in Kingston Old Town which has been established since the 12th century. These Victorian properties can also be spotted walking down Thames Street and Eden Street. 

Given the average age of the properties and the build-up of potential defects with the property, we would always recommend a level 3 Building Survey to identify any of these defects that could have arisen over the years. There was rapid expansion during the 19th century in and around the Norbiton area, especially with the introduction of new roads and improved rail communications. 

From the Apple Market to Church Street, it is clear to see the remains of the old market place. This can be noticed from the later origins of these buildings and the smaller plots these have been built on.

Norbiton is located relatively close to the Thames water, thus the Norbiton area would be at risk of flooding and has a flood warning in force. It would be advisable to get a flood risk report (click for more details).
Due to being located comparatively near the Thames barrier there is the risk of flooding in Norbiton. Areas where sewer flooding is known to occur should not necessarily be seen as areas to avoid development as new sewerage capacity may be able to be provided to alleviate the problem. 

A HomeBuyer report can alleviate your stress with this as it will search the entire premise for damp as well as check the drainage.
A recent Environmental property search carried out for a property in Porchester Road, Kingston Upon Thames, KT1 3PS revealed there has been some recent cases of contaminative activities in the surrounding area. The activities could range from pollution to air, land or water; storage or disposal of radioactive substances; or storage of hazardous or explosive materials.

Guildford is the county town, however Surrey County Council can be found just up the A3 in the neighbouring town Kingston Upon Thames. It was in Dorking in Surrey at the White Horse where Charles Dickens wrote much of his Pickwick Papers and apparently based many of the characters on local people

The University of Surrey can be found in Guildford, however Surrey also hosts the Royal Holloway University of London (Egham), University of Law & Kingston University.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A RICS Home Buyers Survey non-intrusively inspects both the external and internal structure of a property for matters which include these, among others; damp, subsidence, infestations, cracks and damage.

Whichever you opt for out of a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, they are both excellent for peace of mind if you are considering buying a property in Norbiton.

If the Home Buyers Survey flags up any of these defects in your property in Norbiton then our surveyor explains what you need to do to get further advice on how to investigate them and get It resolved. 

If you are concerned about your property has any other defects then you MUST get a RICS Home Buyers Survey as the costs for repairing the defects can run into thousands of pounds.

If you can identify the defect before you purchase then you can get quotes for fixing it and either share the costs with the seller, or, in worst case examples, choose not to proceed.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

It is a common misconception that a mortgage valuation is a HomeBuyers Survey and this can leave HomeBuyers exposed to high repair costs that could have been negotiated with the seller.

A mortgage valuation is conducted by the lender’s surveyor to assess the value of the property you are considering buying in Norbiton and they do not provide a detailed report on structural defects. 

A HomeBuyers Survey details defects and includes a full appraisal of the property independently to anyone else including the mortgage lender.

You can use the information to obtain quotes to fix any defects and gives you the evidence to potentially share the costs with the seller.


Most savvy buyers make sure they get a HomeBuyers survey from an independent surveyor to make sure the property they are buying is free from defects. Call us on 0207 112 5388 to get the best HomeBuyers survey for your property in Norbiton.
