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 non-intrusively inspects both the external and internal structure of a property for matters which include; damp, subsidence, infestations, cracks and damage.

The goal of the Home Buyers Survey, whether the Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or the HomeBuyers Report, is to provide reassurance when buying a home and this is the case if you are considering buying a property in Ripley.

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 your Home Buyers Survey highlights concerns relating to any of these defects your surveyor explains what the issue is in detail and provides a recommendation as to what you should do to further investigate. An example of this is if your surveyor spots signs of damp within the property. Over 5,000 properties a week in the UK have damp proofing laid to combat the issue of rising damp and home buyers fear seeing mould, peeling wall paper and sodden floors as these are all tell-tale signs of rising damp.

If your property is showing these signs and your surveyor notes using their damp monitor that there is damp internally they'll advise you to get a damp specialist to attend the property, confirm the issue advising whether it is rising damp and quote for the costs in repairing with damp proofing.

If you're looking at buying a home in Ripley which is showing signs of damp, or any other defects then you MUST get a Home Buyers Survey. The costs for repairing the defects can run into thousands of pounds; however, If you can identify the problem 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.

Does the surveyor use Drones to assess the property?

The use of more advanced digital technology within assessing properties is on the rise but don’t always exceed the results obtained from more industry standard equipment or save any time.

RICS surveyors have a selection of measuring equipment, recording devices and equipment for assessing remote and concealed areas such as standard lifting equipment for inspection chamber covers, meter cupboard keys, hand mirrors, a ladder that gives safe access to spaces that are three metres above floor level, and binoculars or telescopes for parts of the property at high level which can be utilized to efficiently certify efects.
