Home Buyer Survey - CoronaVirus

Top tips for a Brookwood Home Buyers Survey


Brookwood is a Surrey village in a semi-rural setting. Connaught Road is its main road and its housing consists of mixed Victorian terraces, Victorian/1930s/1950s/1970s semi-detacheds and larger detached houses.

Branching off from this main thoroughfare are a number of cul-de-sacs with more modern houses, some backing onto Basingstoke Canal.

Brookwood has expanded over the last century and a half largely because of its railway station and its huge cemetery (which had its own dedicated railway line) which was used as a burial ground in Victorian times for many Londoners because of the pressure on cemetery spaces nearer to the capital.

There are new build developments in the area, such as in Brookwood Heath – many apartments here have been sold under shared ownership.

Properties in Brookwood built in close proximity to the Basingstoke Canal, in streets such as Billesden Road, Dawney Hill and Bagshot Road, are in areas which are sometimes subject to flood 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).
A RICS surveyor will always inspect any outbuildings such as garages when conducting a RICS home buyers survey for a property in Brookwood.

A recent building survey conducted on a property in Connaught Crescent noted the following, about the garage inspection, in the report:

"Where visible, the floor is badly cracked and settled so that it is uneven. Two panels in the party wall have cracked and a tapering gap has developed as a result of the movement of the floor. I recommend that the necessary repair work is carried out although this may be quite extensive if further movement is to be prevented. You would also need to liaise with the owner of the adjoining garage regarding work to the panels in the party wall."

Properties in some areas of Brookwood may be affected by environmental constraints.

A recent environmental search carried out for a property in Brookwood Farm Drive revealed that the property was within 250m of an area likely to be impacted by environmental constraints. These included ancient woodland.

Areas which have been designated as having environmental or historical importance may impose constraints on property or land developments or alterations.

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 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 Brookwood, 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.

If your Home Buyers Survey highlights concerns relating to any of these defects your surveyor explains what the issue is in detail and provides a recommendation as to what you should do to further investigate. An example of this is if your surveyor spots signs of damp within the property. Over 5,000 properties a week in the UK have damp proofing laid to combat the issue of rising damp and home buyers fear seeing mould, peeling wall paper and sodden floors as these are all tell-tale signs of rising damp.

If your property is showing these signs and your surveyor notes using their damp monitor that there is damp internally they'll advise you to get a damp specialist to attend the property, confirm the issue advising whether it is rising damp and quote for the costs in repairing with damp proofing.

If you're looking at buying a home in Brookwood which is showing signs of damp, or any other defects then you MUST get a Home Buyers Survey. The costs for repairing the defects can run into thousands of pounds; however, If you can identify the problem before you purchase then you can get quotes for fixing it and either share the costs with the seller, or, in worst case examples, choose not to proceed.

How long does your survey take?

We book the earliest possible slot for your RICS surveyor to carry out their inspection for your RICS home buyers survey. Then, on the day, they visit the property and inspect all accessible areas, concentrating on signs and suspicions of defects and issues.

The actual time your surveyor takes over the inspection varies with each property – you can imagine that one for a small flat for a HomeBuyers Report will normally take less than one for a large mansion for a Building Survey. It is likely to be anything between 1 ½ hours to 3 hours.

SAM Conveyancing's RICS surveyors call you on the day of the inspection after carrying it out to go over any major concerns and findings and then they complete the report and return it to you within 5 working days.
