Top tips for a Camberley Home Buyers Survey


Camberley developed mainly in the 19th century with the building of the Royal Military College in 1812, which an area of housing grew around. The arrival of the railway station in 1878 encouraged more extensive development and many of the older Victorian properties, whether classic terraces, cottages or larger houses, in the area date from just after this time.

The Old Dean housing estate was built in the 1950s as a council estate but many of the properties have been bought under the Right to Buy scheme. Newer developments include The Atrium, west of Park Street, built in 2006. The residential blocks consist of mid-rise apartments split into courtyards in the Barcelona style. 

Some of the newer developments offer shared ownership, such as in Acorn Avenue and Mardale..

An area to the south west of Camberley on the borders of Blackwater, around the Blackwater River, including York Town, Trafalgar Way and Stanhope Road, is subject to flood warnings.

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).
As general advice, a damp proof course is a membrane of impervious material located in the walls just above ground level to prevent water rising through capillary action commonly known as rising damp. The recommended minimum clear distance between the damp proof course and the ground is 150mm.

In a recent survey on Park Road, Camberley, Surrey, GU15 2SN, the surveyor spotted that the walls have a slate d.p.c. and this is largely obscured by a thickened mortar joint. The patio is only one course below the d.p.c. This could result in splashing of the wall above the d.p.c and it is recommended that a channel is made between the wall and the patio or the patio reduced in level if ever the patio is relaid.
To ventilate the void under the ground floor structure, cast iron or terra cotta airbricks are provided at the base of the external walls.

SurreySurrey 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.

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 Camberley, 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 Camberley 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 my survey inspection take?

The only definitive answer that can be given is ‘as long as the surveyor needs to complete a thorough inspection of all relevant areas of the property'.

Naturally, each property varies in scope and will have its own individual features that need to be commented upon – you wouldn’t expect a modern 2 bed flat to take the same amount of time as a 7 bed, Victorian manor house!

Many surveyors might, for example, take 2 hours or so doing an inspection but you cannot specifically predict this for any particular property.
