Top tips for a Knaphill Home Buyers Survey


Knaphill's urban village saw periods of housing growth when the Basingstoke Canal was built near there in 1794 and when the railway arrived in 1838.

You can find housing from most periods there, including, for example, bungalows, but there are many large modern detached properties, such as can be found in Bagshot Road.

Brookwood Farm Drive in Brookwood Heath has many new build properties sold under the shared ownership scheme.

Noise pollution from road and rail traffic in Knaphill is at its highest in the vicinity of where Connaught Road crosses Bagshot Road, with the railway running nearby.
Properties in some areas of Knaphill may be affected by overhead power lines or mobile phone masts.

A recent environmental search carried out for a property in Highclere Road revealed that there were overhead power lines or mobile phone masts located within 250m of the dwelling.

Overhead power lines and phone masts can be contentious and additionally may have a visual impact on the surrounding area.
Some properties in Knaphill may be located in an area which is subject to a Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL).

A recent local authority search for a property in Englefield Road revealed that it was within a CIL area.

The Community Infrastructure Levy is a planning charge, introduced by the Planning Act 2008 as a tool for local authorities in England and Wales to help deliver infrastructure to support the development of their area. It came into force on 6 April 2010 through the Community Infrastructure Levy Regulations 2010. Development may be liable for a charge under the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL), if your local planning authority has chosen to set a charge in its area.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

Our RICS Surveyor, during a Home Buyers Survey in Knaphill, 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.

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 Knaphill 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?

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 Knaphill 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 01483 802 485 to get the best HomeBuyers survey for your property in Knaphill.
