Top tips for a Cranleigh Home Buyers Survey


Cranleigh is a large village in Surrey, a little southeast of Guildford. Its Anglican parish church of St Nicolas was first built around 1170. Some housing development and population growth occurred as a result of the opening of the Wey and Arun Canal in 1816 and the railways arriving in 1865 (although Beeching's Axe saw the closure of Cranleigh Station in 1965.

Alongside 20th century properties from many eras, there are many surviving Victorian dwellings in the village in roads such as New Park Road, Mead Road, Mount Road, Bridge Road and Avenue Road. There are almost twice as many detached houses and semi-detached houses in the area.

New build developments include the detached houses in The Common and the retirement flats in Essex Drive, Elmbridge Village.

Properties in Cranleigh built in close proximity to the River Wey, the Wey and Arun Junction Canal, Little Brook and other related tributaries and channels, in streets such as Mead Road, Alford Road and Horsham Road, are in an area where flood warnings and alerts are issued 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).
According to the UK Government's Public Health England, some parts of Cranleigh, including streets such as Ewhurst Road B2127 and Woodland Avenue, are in a raised radon area, with properties built there having a higher probability than average of experiencing ground Radon emissions.

The raised Radon area has a maximum radon potential of 3-5% (the percentage is the chance of a property being built where Radon emissions might measure above the action level).

If you are concerned that a property you are buying is in an area of raised Radon, please click to visit Public Health England's UK Radon Map. Click also to find out more about Radon, Radon property searches and much more.
A recent Environmental Search for a property in Clappers Meadow, Alfold, Cranleigh, GU6 8HJ, stated that the dwelling was within 4km of a well used for energy exploration or extraction.

Any areas to be explored for their energy potential by the oil & gas industry must be licensed by the Department for Energy and Climate Change. Such exploration includes areas subject to hydraulic fracturing ("fracking") investigation.

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.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

Our RICS Surveyor, during a Home Buyers Survey in Cranleigh, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, 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.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect 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 the property you are thinking of buying in Cranleigh 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. To get yours, call 01483 802 485.
