Top tips for a Addlestone Home Buyers Survey


Addlestone has many cottages and houses which were built in the mid-19th century, with an increase in development in the years after 1848 when the railway arrived. At this time, various larger Victorian houses were built as wealthy commuters moved to the area.

The next large expansion of houses, mainly semi-detached, occurred between 1914 and 1939 because of the Bleriot Aeroplane Factory, Lang's Propellor Factory and the Weyman's Coachworks.

Addlestone North has many socially rented properties. There are new build developments such as at Bleriot Gate and Addlestone One, which is in the process of completion. Some of these offer shared ownership.

In section I3 of the HomeBuyer Report, the surveyor advises you of other matters that your legal advisor will need further clarification on form the seller such as:

  • repairing obligations in respect of boundaries;
  • (for leaseholds) repairing obligations in respect of the buildingexterior and communal areas; and
  • (for leaseholds)confirm lease details, to include service charge, ground rent andunexpired lease terms
In section H2 of the HomeBuyer Report, the Building Surveyor should flag any signs of Japanese Knotweed identified on site.

In a HomeBuyers Report on Woodlands Avenue , West Byfleet , Surrey , KT14 6AW, our surveyor stated "Whilst no Japanese Knotweed was visible from our view over the boundary fence, the vegetation growing in this area was dense, and we are therefore unable to rule out the presence of such growth. The customer should be aware that Japanese Knotweed commonly grows on uncontrolled areas such as railway embankments."

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

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 Addlestone 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.

Can you attend the Survey with the surveyor?

Most surveyors do not allow the client on site whilst carrying out their inspection. They have a long list of defects that they need to check for and they cannot be distracted from the job in hand as they can be held to account for any missed defects.

The surveyors' professional indemnity insurance does not cover for bringing any third party on site with them while they are completing their inspection, therefore, in the event of any damage being sited by a vendor while the survey is taking place, the surveyor would be liable and uninsured.

On the day of the survey if you have any concerns you can make the surveyor aware of this so they can pay special attention to these areas during their inspection.
