Top tips for a Englefield Green Home Buyers Survey


Englefield Green is a Surrey village which hosts the wonderful Jacobite-fronted Royal Holloway College of the University of London and is next to Windsor Great Park and borders Egham.

It developed from a hamlet in the 19th century and had some impetus for growth when the railway arrived at Egham station, around 1 mile away, in the mid-19th century.

There are many Victorian semi-detached and terrace houses such as in Northcross Road, Bond Street and Alexandra Road and large detached houses from various periods in Wick Road, Wick Lane and Bishopsgate Road. Some are period, some have been redesigned or have been built recently.

Some of the modern properties in Wick Road have been sold as shared ownership apartments.

Some areas around the Royal Holloway University side of Englefield Green, such as parts of Prune Hill and Clarence Street, which are in close proximity to tributaries, channels and feeders of the River Thames, 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).
Your RICS surveyor inspects drains during a survey of a property in Englefiled Green, where the drain cover is accessible and on the site of the property.

If the drains are reported to be blocked you may need to employ a drainage company to inspect the drains with CCTV such as Drain Doctor Plumbing, Twickenham, TW20 0QU.
Properties sometimes have issues with ground stability in certain locations in Englefield Green.

In a recent environmental search, taken out for a property in Quincy 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."

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A RICS Home Buyers Survey involves an examination of the structure of the inside and the outside of a property aimed at pinpointing issues such as subsidence, damp, cracks, infestation and damage.

The survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is non-intrusive and is highly recommended if you are looking at buying a property in Englefield Green.

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.

Should any issues be flagged up in the Home Buyers Survey, our surveyor will tell you what you need to do to get more in-depth advice on the extent and seriousness of the issue and what needs to be done to remedy it. 

If you are worried about a crack or cracks or indeed any other defects that you think your property in Englefield Green has, we strongly recommend you get a Home Buyers Survey as the cost of remedying the problem might snowball into many thousands of pounds further down the line. As an example of the costs, underpinning a property due to subsidence can be upwards of £10,000.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

When you buy a home with a mortgage your Mortgage Lender requires you to get a mortgage valuation to assess how much your property is actually worth. You have to pay for this survey and often you may think this is also a structural assessment to identify defects.

Sadly the mortgage valuation is just for the mortgage lender which means you need to get your own independent survey of the property that you'd like to buy in Englefield Green to make sure there aren't any defects.

There is some confusion as the mortgage valuation is often referred to as a survey and so many buyers assume this is what is meant by 'have you done your survey?' It is important that when buying a property in Englefield Green that you arrange your own HomeBuyers Survey that reports on defects or potential issues with the property.

The two types of HomeBuyers Survey to choose from are the HomeBuyers Report or the Building Survey. Buying without a survey could leave you exposed to any repair costs or defects that you didn't spot. The costs of underpinning a property due to subsidence run into the £10,000s so it is important to get a survey to check for this type of defect. Buy your HomeBuyers Survey - call 01344 567 887.
