Top tips for a Effingham Home Buyers Survey


Effingham village is adjacent to the crest of the North Downs and has a medieval parish church. Effingham Golf Course's clubhouse is Georgian in style and was reconstructed from the original manor house in 1770.

The Red House, by Edwin Lutyens, is an astounding piece of architecture in the locale, built in 1893. It was converted into apartments in 2008.

Effingham is an affluent locale which has a lot of large detached houses, built in a variety of periods, including the Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian. There are also a number of bungalows, such as can be found in Mount Pleasant. There are semi-detached homes, particularly built in the interwar period, but there are very few flats, and these tend to be period conversions.

According to the UK Government's Public Health England, much of Effingham is in a raised Radon area, in streets such as Browns Lane and Church Street, with properties built there having a higher probability than average of experiencing ground Radon emissions.

Properties sometimes have issues with ground stability in certain locations in Effingham.

In a recent environmental search, taken out for a property in Forest Road, the report noted that there was a moderate potential for natural ground instability within 50m of the property.

This should not be taken to mean that the property in question actually suffered/suffers from subsidence however as "active subsidence will be dependent on local conditions, such as the proximity of trees or areas where trees have been removed, which require an inspection of the site to identify the nature of the ground on which the property is built."

Why do I need a survey if I have had a Mortgage Valuation?

A property survey is different from a mortgage valuation report. A valuation is a cursory look at a property to assess how much it is worth and whether it is suitable for a mortgage, this will include a note of any major works that might affect the value of the property however It is not a detailed inspection of the property’s condition.

Before buying a property, it’s a good idea to get a professional to carry out a thorough inspection. The Building survey and Homebuyers report will make you aware of problems with the property structure, repairs or alterations that need to be made and risk associated with the property.

Buying a new home is likely to be the most expensive purchase you ever make so it’s important to make sure you’re making a sound investment that won’t result in you losing money in the long run.
