Top tips for a Cobham Home Buyers Survey


Cobham village's St Andrew's Church dates back to the 12th century, however the arrival of the railway in the 1880s saw an increase in its population and development, which continued in the 20th century.

A 1960s improvement scheme resulted in a widening of the High Street which resulted in a few historic buildings being demolished, with the shops replacing them often having glass fronts.

Soils are slowly permeable, seasonally wet, slightly acid but base-rich loamy and clayey. Most properties, barring the odd period surviving homes from the Victorian and Edwardian era, are comparatively modern and there are many semi-detached houses.

There are new build developments, such as the low-rise flats in Portsmouth Road and larger modern family homes around, particularly in Fairbourne.

Cobham also has many retirement homes, such as Churchfield House, Cobham Grange, Cobham Park and Winstanley Close/Walk (in Lushington Drive).

Cobham's south west is in the snaking flood plain of the River Mole and properties built in roads in close proximity to the river, such as Downside Bridge Road and Anvil Lane, have been subject to flood warnings and 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).
Some properties in Cobham may be located in an area which is subject to a Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL).

The Community Infrastructure Levy is a planning charge, introduced by the Planning Act 2008 as a tool for local authorities in England and Wales to help deliver infrastructure to support the development of their area. It came into force on 6 April 2010 through the Community Infrastructure Levy Regulations 2010. Development may be liable for a charge under the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL), if your local planning authority has chosen to set a charge in its area.

Raised levels of noise pollution from roads are particularly notable around the intersection of the M25 and the A3 in the Cobham area.

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 non-intrusively inspects both the external and internal structure of a property for matters which include these, among others; damp, subsidence, infestations, cracks and damage.

Whichever you opt for out of a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, they are both excellent for peace of mind if you are considering buying a property in Cobham.

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 Cobham 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.

You can find a local RICS surveyor by using the search at the bottom RHS of this page.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

Mortgage lenders in England and Wales require you to get a valuation for the property in Cobham you are buying so that they can gauge whether the amount you are paying is appropriate. This survey is called a Mortgage Valuation. The mortgage valuation is paid for by you but the results aren't always shared with you as the survey actually belongs to the lender. Furthermore, it doesn't include any survey into potential defects or structural issues that are too often found in properties.

There is also a degree of confusion because the mortgage valuation is referred to as a survey and a large number of buyers assume this is what is meant by 'have you done your survey?' It is important that when buying a property in Cobham that you arrange your own HomeBuyers survey that reports on defects or potential issues a property has; either a HomeBuyers Report or a Building Survey. Buying without a survey could leave you having to pay out money for any repair costs or defects that you didn't spot. Defects such as rising damp can cost thousands to repair and would affect your future sale price if not corrected.


The average cost for HomeBuyers for fixing works to their property after purchase is just under £2,000, and when some defects affect the resale value of your home, getting an independent HomeBuyers Survey makes a lot of sense, financial and otherwise. Call us on 01483 802 485 to get the best HomeBuyers Survey for your property in Cobham.
