Top tips for a Chessington Home Buyers Survey


Chessington is known for its World of Adventures and the mansion there, known as the Burnt Stub, was originally built in 1348 although it was razed to the ground during the English Civil War and eventually rebuilt in the 18th Century in a Neo-Gothic Victorian style.

Most properties in the area were built during the 20th Century and there are many semi-detached homes built between the 1930s and 1950s although there are some surviving properties from the Victorian and Georgian eras.

New developments include the large detached homes in Rushlight Mews and the purpose built flats in Brighton Road.

Properties in Chessington built in close proximity to the Hogsmill River and its tributaries and channels, in streets such as Sussex Gardens and Cheshire Gardens, are in areas which are subject to flood 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 Chessington are built in designated smoke control areas.

A recent local authority search done for a dwelling in Finlays Close, Chessington, KT9 1XG, noted that the property was in such a smoke control area.

Under the terms of Section 20 of the Clean Air Act 1993, smoke emissions from all buildings are prohibited unless an exemption has been made by the Secretary of State under Section 21 of the Act.
A recent Regulated Local Authority Search for a property in Bridge Road, Chessington, KT9 2EX noted that the property was in a local authority area that may be affected by the Crossrail route, in this case, specifically that the dwelling was within 200m of a proposed Crossrail station (Chessington North).

LondonGreater London is an area which contains London, the capital of the United Kingdom (which itself centres on the Cities of London and Westminster) and a number of surrounding boroughs which are administered as London boroughs and which are the overall executive responsibility of the Mayor of London. It contains a large number of constituencies, each represented by an MP and it should be noted that these are not the same as nor even always continguous with the borders of the boroughs.

Many parts of Greater London were originally administered by the counties which surround London and these counties are often called the home counties. Enfield, for example, used to be classed as being part of Middlesex, but is now near the northern border of Greater London. Greater London's borders often coincide with a zone of 'green belt': areas where it has been decided that open spaces, parks, forests and wildlife reserves should act as a buffer against urban sprawl. London has numerous landmarks, anything from Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament to Karl Marx's grave in Highgate Cemetery.

Greater London contains more than 9 million inhabitants, a number growing daily, and as this is approximately 1/7 of the population of the UK, it can be seen that Greater Londoners have a large influence on the rest of the country politically and this is enhanced by the concentration of skilled workers gravitating towards the capital.

What’s the difference between a HomeBuyer Report and a Building Survey?

When it comes to property surveys for home buyers there are two main choices.

The first is the RICS HomeBuyer Report; this survey is specifically designed for post-1950s flats/bungalows/maisonettes or houses of standard construction. The report uses a 'traffic light' format to indicate the opinion of the surveyor on the various aspects of the building under consideration. The HomeBuyer Report includes a current market valuation as standard which can be used to compare with your property's agreed asking price.

The second option is the RICS Building Survey; this survey is reserved for older and larger properties that may have had the original fabric of the property altered or have unique features (i.e. a thatched roof). It is the most detailed visual inspection that can be carried out.

While it doesn’t include the property valuation that comes as standard with a HomeBuyer Report, many surveyors will often include in it an estimate of the cost of works for maintenance or upgrades to help with repairs or renovation to the property.
