Surbiton has the Thames on its western and northern shoulder and the Hogsmill River to its north and east: dwellings in the immediate vicinity of these, for example in roads such as Denmark Road and Portsmouth Road, have been issued with flood warnings and alerts, occasionally.

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).
Drains are inspected during a survey, where the drain cover is accessible and on the site of the property.

If the drains are reported to be blocked you may need to employ a drainage company to inspect the drains with CCTV such as Sharps Drain Logic Ltd, 28 Red Lion Rd, Surbiton KT6 7QD.
The weather on the day of the survey will make a difference to what the surveyor can report. For example, if there weather is dry and sunny, the surveyor will be unable to comment on the guttering, other than to visually inspect them.

The surveyor will make reference to the weather conditions within his report such as: "It was not raining at the time of our inspection and it is not possible to state that gutterjoints, roof junctions and flashings are totally watertight".

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.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A RICS 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 is non-intrusive. If you are thinking of buying a property in Surbiton, it is highly advisable to book one, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report,.

If you are worried about a crack or cracks or indeed any other defects that you think your property has, we strongly recommend you get a Home Buyers Survey as the cost of remedying the problem might snowball into many thousands of pounds further down the line.

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 Surbiton 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.
