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 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 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 they find any issues during the inspection of your property in Cobham, our surveyor will flag them up in the Home Buyers Survey and give you advice on what you should do to solve them. An example of this is where the surveyor finds evidence of woodworm infestation. 

If you are concerned about any other defects with the property you MUST get a Home Buyers Survey as the costs of repairing the defects can run into thousands of pounds.

Is a mortgage valuation a Building Survey?

Many mistakenly think that a mortgage valuation is the same as a HomeBuyers Survey and the consequence is that home buyers can subsequently have to shell out money for repairing faults and defects that could well have been part of the bargaining process with the seller on purchase. The surveyor appointed by the lender conducts a mortgage valuation to estimate the value of the property: this survey is not concerned with detailing structural defects.


A HomeBuyers Survey lists and reports on defects and includes a full appraisal and valuation of your property in Cobham which is completely independent of the mortgage lender. This knowledge can be used to get quotes for the cost of fixing defects and, most importantly, gives you evidence which can be used to bargain with the seller about sharing any such cost.
