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.

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.

Some of these defects you may not even see or know what to look for which makes getting a Home Buyers Survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, incredibly important when you are considering buying a home in Knaphill.

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 Knaphill 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 Knaphill 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 01483 802 485.
