Top tips for a Byfleet Home Buyers Survey


Byfleet is an inland island and a village which has medieval origins. It expanded particularly when Brooklands motor circuit opened in 1907 and this caused a large housing estate to be developed between Chertsey Road and Oyster Lane during World War 1. The estate was sold off but the houses have survived.

St Mary's Church dates to the 14th century and Byfleet Manor was built in 1686.

There are many modern housing developments in the area, such as Barnes Wallis Court, built in 2009, at the junction of Oyster Lane and Parvis road, however the old village has 12 listed buildings.

Much of Byfleet is in a flood plain formed by the River Thames and the River Wey and therefore many dwellings, such as in Church Road and Brewery 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).
Properties in some areas of Byfleet may be affected by environmental constraints.

A recent environmental search carried out for a property in Woodlands Avenue, West Byfleet KT14 6AT revealed that the property was within 250m of an area likely to be impacted by environmental constraints. These included the Basingstoke Canal, designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest.

Areas which have been designated as having environmental or historical importance may impose constraints on property or land developments or alterations.
Properties in some areas of Byfleet may be affected by overhead power lines or mobile phone masts.

A recent environmental search carried out for a property in Pyrford Road, West Byfleet KT14 6RJ revealed that there were overhead power lines or mobile phone masts located within 250m of the dwelling.

Overhead power lines and phone masts can be contentious and additionally may have a visual impact on the surrounding area.
