Top tips for a Farnham Home Buyers Survey


Farnham has a fair number of older buildings, including those which date back to the Georgian period and the ruins of Waverley Abbey, the first Cistercian abbey in England, date back to 1128.

The town rapidly expanded in the mid to late Victorian period, with the arrival of the railway and the expansion of the British Army barracks in nearby Aldershot: this is evidenced by the number of Victorian-era properties.

The town has a number of attractive houses from various periods and also has much modern standard construction building: the town's population has doubled from 20,000 in the immediate post-war period to recent times. New build schemes are also much in evidence, including for example the estate in Tongham, many flats of which are being sold under shared ownership terms.

Properties in Farnham which are built in close proximity to the River Wey, including in streets such as Firgrove Hill and Crosby Way, are in areas which are 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).
According to the UK Government's Public Health England, a considerable part of Farnham's north and an area to its south-west, including streets such Stoke Hills and Stephendale Road is in a raised radon area, with properties built there having a higher probability than average of experiencing ground Radon emissions.

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.
Where roof tiles are laid to straight regular courses a Farnham based building surveyor will need to inspect if they appear to be in satisfactory condition where visible (the inner slopes of rear extension may not be visible from ground level). A closer inspection from a ladder may reveal the presence of cracked tiles.

In a recent inspection in Bridgefield, Farnham, Surrey, GU9 8AN, the mortar in which the ridge and hip tiles are bedded was not unduly weathered. In cases like this tiles may need to be rebedded in the future if severe weathering occurs. The valley between the inner rear slopes was lined in lead sheet. With a valley like this it is recommend that any debris that builds up is cleared away to allow water to run off properly and an inspection should be carried out by a roofing contractor every 2-3 years to check the valley.

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 Home Buyers Survey is completed by a qualified RICS surveyor and delivers a visual inspection of the property in Farnham 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.

Does a surveyor use a ladder during a survey?

Surveyors come equipped with an array of tools and devices in order for them to diagnose and report on any defects internally and externally affecting the property that the client is looking to purchase.

Usually when clients ask whether a surveyor comes equipped with a ladder there is normally concern with a roof or a noted issue with the roofing. If you do have a concern then make sure you highlight this to the surveyor prior to their inspection to ensure it’s specifically reported on.

Your surveyor can come with a three meter ladder to access flat roofs or gain access to advantage points to assess harder to reach areas in conjunction with utilising telescopic camera mounts to document areas which are defective.
