Top tips for a Bagshot Home Buyers Survey


Bagshot is a pleasant village with many period properties and a number of listed buildings, such as Brook Place, a Grade II listed Georgian manor house building. Bagshot Park, the present home of the Earl and Countess of Wessex, was completed in 1879. St Anne's Church a Gothic Revival-style building, was constructed in 1884.

Growth of the village occurred during the first half of the 19th century, largely due to the coaching trade and agriculture, especially market gardening. The opening of the main line railway from London to Southampton and beyond in 1838 destroyed the coaching trade with a resultant depression, but the opening of the local railway line 20 years later promoted renewed growth, particularly with the nursery gardens being better able to supply London's Covent Garden market.

Significant growth has occurred in the size of the village since the 1950s, and especially since the late 1960s. The general area having been earmarked in the national and county strategic plans for growth. Most of the housing has been built as diverse estates, though no single estate is excessively large and the essential characteristics of a large village have not been destroyed.

There are a number of new build developments in the area, for example in Adlington Gate, Guildford Road where there are a number of pleasant semi-detached properties.

Survey Tip 1

Survey Tip 3

Some properties in Bagshot are built in areas where there are risks of both surface water and ground water flooding.

A recent Environmental Search Report carried out for a property in Hawkesworth Drive found that there was a potential risk of surface water flooding within 250m of the property. This kind of flooding can result from factors like high intensity rainfall events (typically greater than 30mm per hour) but can occur otherwise if the ground has low permeability.

The same report noted that the property was subject to a high risk of groundwater flooding within 250m of the property "with a chance greater than 1% annual probability of occurrence or more frequent".

If you are buying a property using a mortgage, your lender requires you to get an Environmental Search report (click to find out more), which examines matters like flooding. Depending on what the Environmental Search flags up, you may wish to book an additional Flood Risk report (click to find out more).
Some properties in the Bagshot area may be subject to environmental constraints. A recent Environmental Search carried out on a property in Southwick revealed that the dwelling was sited with 250m of the following: Lightwater Country Park, Colony Bog and Bagshot Heath (Sites of Special Scientific Interest) and Thames Basin Heaths (Special Protection Areas).

A property built in close proximity to these kinds of areas may well be subject to constraints on development and alteration.
Some properties in Bagshot may be subject to local byelaws occasioned by local authority development plans. A recent local authority search (click to find out more) for a property in Bagshot Green GU19 5JP revealed that the dwelling was sited within a settlement area, which has a development plan designation and borough-wide policies apply to it.

A local authority search shows up these details which may affect what alterations and development can be carried out on a property.

Surrey.pngSurrey is located in the south east of England and is well known for its high property prices and leafy areas. 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. HG Wells, writer of War of the Worlds, lived at Horsell Common in Woking in Surrey when he wrote the book and this is where, in the book, the Martians first land on Earth.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

Many people are not entirely sure about the difference between a mortgage valuation and a HomeBuyers Survey.

Your lender conducts its own valuation on the property in Bagshot you intend to buy to check that it is lending you the right sum of money in relation to the property's value. It is not intended to examine any defects which might affect the property.

When you book a HomeBuyers Survey from us, as well as receiving an independent valuation of the property you wish to buy, the primary focus is to establish whether the property has any issues which you should know about, for example rising damp or subsidence, which might, particularly as time passes, end up requiring even tens of thousands of pounds to put right.


This knowledge is naturally of great use to you, given how much you are intending to spend. You might, on the strength of the information, provided, negotiate with the seller to contribute towards the costs of repairing the defects or even pull out buying the property entirely.

Most importantly, any HomeBuyers Survey is entirely for YOUR benefit and is independent of both your lender - if you are buying with a mortgage - and your vendor. Call 01344 567 887 to get yours and to help your peace of mind.
