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.

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.

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 homebuyers survey, 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 incredibly important.

Does your surveyor check the chimney?

If you're buying a period property which features a chimney you will want to ensure there are no defects or issues with pointing that may cause you issues in the future.

Your RICS surveyor will assess the exterior of a chimney usually from ground level or a nearby vantage point/accessible flat roof to note any issues visible and advise accordingly.

Internally your surveyor will visually check for any signs of structural movement and that the flue is clear, however, this is only possible if accessible.

You should note, however, that surveyors are not structural engineers and so they may advise a further inspection is carried out by such a suitable specialist if suspicions of defects are noted.
