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.

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 is a visual inspection of the grounds and the internal/external structure of the property and identifies defects such as cracks or damage to the structure of the property, subsidence, damp and infestations.

Some of these defects you may not even see or know what to look for which makes getting a Home Buyers Survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, incredibly important when you are considering buying a home in Camberley.

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 the HomeBuyers Survey flags up any of these defects in your property in Camberley then our surveyor explains what you need to do to get further advice on how to investigate them and get It resolved.

If you are concerned about your property has subsidence, or any other defects then you MUST get a HomeBuyers Survey as the costs for repairing the defects can run into thousands of pounds. If you can identify the defect 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.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

When you buy a home with a mortgage your Mortgage Lender requires you to get a mortgage valuation to assess how much your property is actually worth. You have to pay for this survey and often you may think this is also a structural assessment to identify defects.

Sadly the mortgage valuation is just for the mortgage lender which means you need to get your own independent survey of the property that you'd like to buy in Camberley to make sure there aren't any defects.

There is some confusion as the mortgage valuation is often referred to as a survey and so many buyers assume this is what is meant by 'have you done your survey?' It is important that when buying a property in Camberley that you arrange your own HomeBuyers Survey that reports on defects or potential issues with the property.

The two types of HomeBuyers Survey to choose from are the HomeBuyers Report or the Building Survey. Buying without a survey could leave you exposed to any repair costs or defects that you didn't spot. The costs of underpinning a property due to subsidence run into the £10,000s so it is important to get a survey to check for this type of defect. Buy your HomeBuyers Survey - call 01344 567 887.
