If the Home Buyers Survey shows up any such problems, our appointed surveyor will explain to you what you should do to get more in-depth information about the type and scope of the matter and what is required to fix it. 

If you are worried about any defects that you think your property in Surbiton has, we strongly recommend you get a Home Buyers Survey as the cost of remedying the problem might grow to many thousands of pounds as time progresses.

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. 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.

What is the difference between the Building Survey and the HomeBuyers Report?

The RICS HomeBuyer Report is a standard traffic light format, and is different to a Building Survey in many ways. The HomeBuyers report is suitable for standard construction properties post 1950 such as bungalows and flats.

The Level 3: Building Survey is essential for larger or older properties that have had any extensions or alterations from their original build, or if you’re planning major works. The Building Survey comes in a more detailed report and included photos and explanations.
