Home Buyer Survey - CoronaVirus

Top tips for a Ripley Home Buyers Survey


Ripley's village has existed since Norman times and St Mary Magdalen's church chancel was constructed around 1160. The Talbot Hotel was built in 1453.

Despite being the post town for Woking and the wider area up to 1865, the arrival of the railway at Woking in 1838 resulted in Ripley's importance decreasing and its development slowing.

Most properties in the area are detached, from various architectural periods including the very modern, although there are also cottages and bungalows and many semi-detached and terraced properties. There are few flats apart from period conversions.

The River Wey runs very close to the north and west of Ripley, along with many tributaries and channels, and buildings constructed in close proximity to these water courses, such as in Newark Lane, have been subject to flood warnings and 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).
Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the Ripley area mainly centre around the A3, which passes to the south, and affect nearby roads such Rose Lane and Portsmouth Road.
Ripley's soils are freely draining and slightly acidic loamy. They are not particularly associated with high levels of subsidence.

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 Ripley 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.

If the Home Buyers Survey flags up any of these defects then our surveyor explains what you need to do to get further advice on how to investigate them and get It resolved. 

If you are concerned about your property in Ripley has subsidence, or any other defects then you MUST get a Home Buyers Survey as the costs for repairing the defects can run into thousands of pounds. If you can identify the defect before you purchase then you can get quotes for fixing it and either share the costs with the seller, or, in worst case examples, choose not to proceed.

When should you order a survey?

The right time to book a survey is specific to each client’s situation. Generally speaking, it is recommended to book your survey for around a week after your mortgage valuation takes place. This way, if your lender is happy to proceed you are then on track and don’t have the stress of searching for a surveyor to attend your property at the last minute. Inversely, if your mortgage lender comes back and declines your application after the valuation, you then have breathing space to cancel the survey without fear of incurring cancellation charges.

If it is the case that you have concerns in regards to the condition of the property (be it subsidence or damp etc.) and feel that it will impact on what you are prepared to offer or whether you are even willing to proceed with the purchase, you may decide to book it in before your mortgage valuation in order to minimise costs in an already expensive process.
