Top tips for a Albury Home Buyers Survey


Albury is a small village in Guildford borough in Surrey which has a pub, the William IV, which dates back to the 16th century. Albury Estate has a Saxon church within it.

Properties in Albury which are built very close to the Tilling Bourne, such as in Mill Lane, 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 Albury, including streets such as Guildford Lane and Water Lane, 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.
Noise levels from road traffic in the Albury area are highest along the Shere Road/A25, affecting nearby streets such as Combe Lane and Upper Street.

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?

Our RICS Surveyor, during a Home Buyers Survey in Albury, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, inspects both the inside and the outside of your property and searches in particular for subsidence, damp, infestations and any cracks or other damage to the property. The procedure is non-intrusive.

Does your surveyor check your electrics?

Your RICS surveyor will switch lights in a room on and off to see if the electrical supply is connected while carrying out their inspection for your RICS Home Buyers Survey.

However, they won't carry out any in-depth inspection of the electrical supply or check the wiring for example: this is beyond their scope of work. Their primary focus is on detecting signs and suspicions of major property defects such as subsidence and rising damp.

That said, invariably they can recommend a trusted local electrical tradesperson if you ask them to.
