Home Buyer Survey - CoronaVirus

Top tips for a Ewell Home Buyers Survey


Ewell is on the line which separates the chalk of the North Downs and London Clay. The rural area developed somewhat after 1847 when the railway arrived but larger influxes of people only occurred in the 20th century.

Most of the housing consists of 1930s and 1940s semi-detached houses but there are some surviving properties from the Edwardian, Victorian and earlier periods. There are a number of listed buildings, particularly from the Victorian period, including the St Mary the Virgin parish church, consecrated in 1848.

There are also many modern houses and flats and the locale is set to have various new developments, such as the Nescot College site, Ethel Bailey Gardens and Hollmoor Lane. All three of these will offer some affordable housing and properties which can bought under shared ownership.

According to the UK Government's Public Health England, much of Ewell is in a raised Radon area, in streets such as Dudley Grove and Woodcote Close, with properties built there having a higher probability than average of experiencing ground Radon emissions.

Rainwater pipes and gutters are reviewed within section E3 of the HomeBuyer Report. The Building Surveyor will make reference to the material used, most often upvc on newer properties in Ewell, and if there are any signs of leaking to the fascias below the guttering and if falls appear to be adequate.

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?

A Home Buyers Survey is completed by a qualified RICS surveyor and delivers a visual inspection of the property in Ewell and the surrounding garden. The aim of the survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is to identify potential risks or defects that you may not know are there such as cracks or damage to the structure of the property, subsidence, damp and infestations.

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.

The Home Buyer Survey will report on issues found, however you need to make sure that you choose the right Home Buyer Survey for your property because some defects require further detail and this is best served by booking a Building Survey.

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?

It is a common misconception that a mortgage valuation is a HomeBuyers Survey and this can leave HomeBuyers exposed to high repair costs that could have been negotiated with the seller. A mortgage valuation is conducted by the lender’s surveyor to assess the value of the property you are interested in buying in Ewell and they do not provide a detailed report on structural defects.

A HomeBuyers Survey details defects and includes a full appraisal of the property independently to anyone else including the mortgage lender. You can use the information to obtain quotes to fix any defects and gives you the evidence to potentially share the costs with the seller.

Most savvy buyers make sure they get a HomeBuyers survey from an independent surveyor to make sure the property they are buying is free from defects. Call us on 0207 112 5388 to get the best HomeBuyers survey for your property in Ewell.
