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.

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.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A RICS Home Buyers Survey involves an examination of the structure of the inside and the outside of a property aimed at pinpointing issues such as subsidence, damp, cracks, infestation and damage.

The survey is non-intrusive. If you are thinking of buying a property in Bagshot, it is highly advisable to book one, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report,.

NB If you're a first time buyer, you might wish to click on What is a House Survey to find out more, including what happens during the inspection.

Should any issues be flagged up in the Home Buyers Survey, our surveyor will tell you what you need to do to get more in-depth advice on the extent and seriousness of the issue and what needs to be done to remedy it. 

If you are worried about a crack or cracks or indeed any other defects that you think your property in Bagshot has, we strongly recommend you get a Home Buyers Survey as the cost of remedying the problem might snowball into many thousands of pounds further down the line.

What happens if your surveyor finds signs of damp?

If your RICS surveyor flags issues with damp during your defect survey then your next course of action is to contact a damp specialist. The damp surveyor will inspect internal and external walls and floorboards for visible signs of moisture using something called a moisture meter. Finally the surveyor will take a sample of the porous material by drilling into the wall, to see how damp it is.

If you are carrying out the damp survey as part of your due diligence before you buy the property, it is reasonable to ask the seller to cover the costs in your negotiations as the damp will have been worsening during the current owner's tenancy.
