Top tips for a Lightwater Home Buyers Survey


Lightwater has mainly grown as a town in the 20th century since it developed as a place where Londoners used to take vacations in holiday chalets there. 

Housing has developed considerably since the 1960s and there are now many estates in the area north of Red Road and the military ranges around Greyspot.

There are many 3-bedroom terrace houses and some larger properties, many built in period style.

Properties built in close proximity to the Windle Brook and its tributaries and channels around Lightwater are sometimes subject to flood alerts and flood warnings for example in Oldhouse Lane, South Farm Lane and Broadway Road.

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).
When you get a RICS home buyers survey for a property in Lightwater, you will be informed about any major areas of concern or suspicions of defects in the survey report.

In a recent building survey conducted on a property in The Close, Lightwater, the surveyor made the following observations in conclusion, among others:

  • Moss on the roof slopes.
  • Felt under the tiles on main roof may be decayed where exposed to the weather.
  • Remove the tree behind the store before it becomes too big.
  • Insulation over the bathroom should be increased to 350mm to meet current standards.
Properties in some areas of Lightwater may be affected by environmental constraints.

A recent environmental search carried out for a property in Miles Place revealed that the property was within 250m of an area likely to be impacted by environmental constraints. These included:

  • Sites of Special Scientific Interest;
  • Special Areas of Conservation; and
  • Special Protection Areas.

Areas which have been designated as having environmental or historical importance may impose constraints on property or land developments or alterations.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A RICS Home Buyers Survey is a visual inspection of the grounds and the internal/external structure of the property and identifies defects such as cracks or damage to the structure of the property, subsidence, damp and infestations.

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, if you're thinking of buying a property in Lightwater, incredibly important.

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.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

Confusion can arise regarding mortgage valuations and HomeBuyers Surveys. The unfortunate result is that property buyers can sometimes find themselves having to spend a great deal of money repairing faults and defects which might well have - and ideally would have - formed part of the bargaining process with the vendor when negotiations were taking place.

Lenders appoint surveyors to carry out valuations to estimate market values of properties but the survey has no concern with investigating structural defects.

A HomeBuyers Survey notes and reports on defects and has a full appraisal and valuation of a property, which, most importantly, is completely independent of the mortgage lender. You can use this information to get quotes for how much it would cost to fix any defects detected in your property in Lightwater. More importantly, the survey can provide evidence which you can use to bargain with the seller about sharing repair costs. Book your HomeBuyers Survey for your property in Lightwater by calling 01344 567 887 and get yourself some well-earned peace of mind.
