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".

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.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

People, particularly first time buyers, have been known to confuse a mortgage valuation with a HomeBuyers Survey. This confusion can prove costly and end up in a home buyer having to spend money on expensive repair costs which should have been divided up with the seller with this reflected in a reduction in the original sale price. Your lender conducts its own mortgage valuation to calculate the value of the property you are trying to buy in Surbiton and this is in no sense a report on structural defects.

A HomeBuyers Survey notes defects as well as including a full valuation of a property independently of the mortgage lender or anyone else. The information in it can be used to get quotes for the cost of fixing any issues and presents evidence for bargaining with the seller about sharing repair costs, if appropriate, or even deciding not to go ahead with buying a property. Call 0207 112 5388 and speak to our experts to book your HomeBuyers Survey.
