Our unique data revealed that the RICS Level 2 Survey was the most popular survey type in Tunbridge Wells, organised primarily for detached and terraced homes. The RICS Level 3 Survey, although a much more thorough survey, were used far less in the area. For flats, just 4% of our users opted for a RICS Level 3 Survey.
Whilst over 40% of users arranged a RICS Level 2 Survey for either a detached home or terraced property, just 17% organised a RICS Level 3 Survey for the same property types. For semi-detached properties, 19% of our users opted for a RICS Level 2 Survey, in comparison to 10% who arranged a RICS Level 3 Survey.
When it comes to arranging a survey for your property purchase, the right one for you will depend on the home you are looking to buy. More modern homes will suit a RICS Level 2 Survey, whilst older homes or those in poor condition would benefit from a full RICS Level 3 Survey.
Tunbridge Wells has a vast range of architecture and property types on offer, from historic 15th century homes, period townhouses from the Victorian and Edwardians eras, equestrian properties and barn conversions and Arts & Craft style family homes. For those looking for something more modern, there are developments of new builds available in the area.
Tunbridge Wells has 25 conservation areas and somewhere in the region of a staggering 3,000 separate buildings listed as being of special architectural or historical interest, according to Tunbridge Wells Borough Council.

Subsidence is a term dreaded by homeowners and can cause a whole host of problems. Subsidence is what happens when a property “sinks” into the ground below, often caused by ground stability issues. This can decrease the value of the home and in severe cases, cause the home to be condemned.
Thankfully, a subsidence map created by Geobear, which identifies the subsidence hotspots throughout the UK, shows that the area of Tunbridge Wells has notably low levels of subsidence. Although it is present, it is significantly lower than other parts of the country where it may be more of a concern.
That said, it is vital that you are aware of any subsidence issues in and around the property before completing the purchase. Don’t forget, Compare My Move can connect you with an experienced building surveyor in Tunbridge Wells who can conduct a survey and provide a report with details of any stability or subsidence concerns.
Japanese Knotweed is an invasive and harmful plant found throughout the United Kingdom. Initially introduced to British botanical gardens as an ornamental plant, and later sold commercially, its destructive nature and impact on property has since been realised.
Japanese Knotweed can grow up to 10cm per day during certain months of the year and has the ability to force its way through concrete and property foundations. As a result, it has the potential to cause considerable damage to homes and can be very expensive to remove.
It can also cause properties to drop in value and there have even been cases where lenders have not approved mortgages for properties plagued with a severe infestation.
A heatmap detailing the impact of Japanese Knotweed across the UK revealed that there are 40 reported occurrences of Japanese Knotweed within 4km on the centre of Tunbridge Wells. Although this is far less than the infestations found in areas such as South London, where it is rife, you will need to be aware of any growing on or near your property prior to purchase.
A surveyor will be able to identify if Japanese Knotweed is present on the grounds of the property you are looking to buy or in neighbouring land. And provide advice on how to proceed if it is found.
