A Home Buyer Survey - What does it cover?

A Home Buyers Survey involves an examination of the structure of the inside and the outside of a property aimed at pinpointing issues such as subsidence, damp, cracks, infestation and damage. The survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is non-intrusive.

If you are worried about any defects that you think your property in Old Woking has, we strongly recommend you get a Home Buyers Survey as the cost of remedying the problem might grow to many thousands of pounds as time progresses.

Home Buyer Survey tips for buying in Old Woking


Old Woking is a village in Surrey with some very old buildings, including St Peter's Church, which dates to the 12th century and Woking Palace originally dates from 1272.

There are a number of Georgian and Victorian properties and the vast majority of housing in the area is semi-detached, much from the 1920s to the 1950s, including some interwar council housing in the Elm Bridge Estate.

Shared ownership resales can be found sometimes, such as in Baynton Road, where some of the 1950s terrace houses there have been sold in this fashion.

A recent local authority search for a property in Rosebery Crescent, GU22 9BL 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.

When should you book your survey?

A survey from booking to getting your report should normally take around 2 to 3 weeks depending on the time of year (busy periods are July, August and December).

The best advice is to instruct your surveyor at the same time as you instruct your solicitor. The reason being is that your solicitor tells you of any legal reason to not buy the property and the surveyor will look to tell you if their is any visual reason to stop buying or to renegotiate the selling price.
