Top tips for a Ottershaw Home Buyers Survey


Ottershaw is a village in the Runnymede district of Surrey. Christ Church was consecrated in 1864. A boarding school for boys was founded in 1948 in Ottershaw Park but closed in 1980 and its buildings converted to modern flats.

Housing in the area is a great variety of detached, semi-detached and terrace houses and flats. The Mansion in Ottershaw Park was built at the start of the 20th century and now houses 24 families in apartments. 

You can find modern terrace houses in Ottershaw Park as well and many detached houses from the Victorian period through the 20th century (particularly from the interwar period) and very modern large detached homes.

Properties to the south of Ottershaw which are located in close proximity to the The Bourne and its tributaries, channels and feeders, particularly where the Chertsey Road/Guildford Road cross the river, are in areas which are subject to flood 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).
Properties sometimes have issues with ground stability in certain locations in Ottershaw.

In a recent environmental search, taken out for a property in Hazelbank Road, KT16 8BB, the report noted that there was a moderate potential for natural ground instability within 50m of the property.

This should not be taken to mean that the property in question actually suffered/suffers from subsidence however as "active subsidence will be dependent on local conditions, such as the proximity of trees or areas where trees have been removed, which require an inspection of the site to identify the nature of the ground on which the property is built."

Road noise pollution in Ottershaw is highest around the Guildford Road and affects nearby streets such as Coach Road and Chaworth Road.

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 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 homebuyers survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, if you are thinking of buying a property in Ottershaw 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 asbestos testing included in my survey? Is the removal cost also quoted?

No, what the surveyor will do is let you know within the report that there are signs of asbestos based on their visual inspection and of the property's general style and age. If there are suspicions of asbestos you would be advised to get an asbestos specialist to test the grade of the asbestos within the property.

We have asbestos surveyors covering Ottershaw and they are all qualified to British Occupational Hygiene Society P402 and some to S301 Standards. All samples are analysed in a UKAS accredited laboratory. At the end of the process you will know what level of asbestos is present and what it will cost for you or the vendor to remove it.
