The survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is non-intrusive and is highly recommended if you are looking at buying a property in Addlestone.

Home Buyer Survey tips for buying in Addlestone


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 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."

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.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

Many mistakenly think that a mortgage valuation is the same as a HomeBuyers Survey and the consequence is that home buyers can subsequently have to shell out money for repairing faults and defects that could well have been part of the bargaining process with the seller on purchase. The surveyor appointed by the lender conducts a mortgage valuation to estimate the value of the property: this survey is not concerned with detailing structural defects.

A HomeBuyers Survey lists and reports on defects and includes a full appraisal and valuation of the property you are thinking of buying in Addlestone which is completely independent of the mortgage lender. This knowledge can be used to get quotes for the cost of fixing defects and, most importantly, gives you evidence which can be used to bargain with the seller about sharing any such cost. To get yours, call 01344 567 887.
