Top tips for a Chertsey Home Buyers Survey


Chertsey's town centre has excellent large properties dating from its time as a market town from the late medieval period up to the early 19th century. The railway arrived in 1849 but most of the housing was built in the interwar period and post-war.

Houses built in the mid to late 19th century can be found around Grove Road and Alwyns Lane and these are mainly 2-storey with slated roof housing and brick and clay tiles.

There were many council houses built in the interwar period around the Bellbridge Road and Cowley Avenue areas and private houses built around Weir Road and Bridge Roard in the same period. These are mainly semi-detached properties.

Around Pyrcroft Road and areas nearby you find many standard construction mainly semi-detached houses built post-war and near Roakes Avenue and the north and south of Mead Lane, there are houses built from the 1970s. There are also new build developments here and there with some offering shared ownership.

Chertsey has been prone to floods, particularly in the areas in close proximity to the Bourne, the Abbey River and the River Thames and the many lakes affecting streets such as Blacksmiths Lane and Drill Hall Road.

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).
Vermin can enter properties at any time. If this occurs, you should consult a pest control firm for advice on how to treat the infestation and to prevent infestation in the future.
There are small radon gas readings in certain parts of Chertsey, including along the Staines Road, Thorpe Road and St Ann's Road.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

Our RICS Surveyor, during a Home Buyers Survey, inspects both the inside and the outside of your property and searches in particular for subsidence, damp, infestations and any cracks or other damage to the property.

The procedure is non-intrusive. It is highly recommended that you get one, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, if you are thinking of buying a property in Chertsey.

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 Home Buyers Survey flags up any of these defects in your property in Chertsey 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 any other defects then you MUST get a RICS Home Buyers 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's caught your eye in Chertsey 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 Chertsey 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. Get your HomeBuyers Survey - call 01344 567 887.
