Top tips for a Virginia Water Home Buyers Survey


Virginia Water has examples of many different types of property. There is council and ex-council housing, built from the 1930s and onward, such as Imperial House and there are huge Georgian villas and mansions as well. The Wentworth Estate, largely built in the 1920s, has some huge houses.

Some 4,000 new houses are planned for the areas around Longcross Road and Lynne Lane (East and West), many of which will be sold under shared ownership terms.

An area to the south east of Virginia Water, around The Bourne, including streets such as Sandhills Lane/Green Road and Lyne Lane, is subject to flood warnings.

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).
Rainwater is often collected in PVCu gutters fixed to the fascia boards with brackets. The gutters discharge to PVCu downpipes.

The rainwater pipes will need to be inspected to confirm they are in a satisfactory condition. The gutters should also be cleared of dirt and debris to ensure that water is discharged to the outlets without impediment.
Chimneys can often be costly to repair and the majority of freehold properties in Virginia Water have chimneys.

In a recent survey on Trumpsgreen Road, Virginia Water, Surrey, GU25 4HX, there were two chimney stacks which served the fireplaces in the living room and the dining room. The main stack was on the right hand wall and the other stack penetrates the rear slope. The stacks were built of brickwork and were fitted with lead flashings at the junction with the tiling.

The mortar joints were badly weathered to both stacks and it was suspected that the bricks may be loose at the top of the main stack.

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 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, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is non-intrusive.

If they find any issues during the inspection of your property in Virginia Water, our surveyor will flag them up in the Home Buyers Survey and give you advice on what you should do to solve them. An example of this is where the surveyor finds evidence of woodworm infestation. 

If you are concerned about any other defects with the property you MUST get a Home Buyers Survey as the costs of repairing the defects can run into thousands of pounds.

My property is a period flat, do I need a building survey?

This is a commonly asked question and it depends on the property to be inspected.

For a homebuyers report the surveyor is inspecting the property itself and common parts. If the property is a first floor flat with a garden flat below and a top floor flat above, there really is very little merit in instructing a full building survey as the surveyor has limits to what he can comment on.

If however the property to be purchased is the garden flat, then the surveyor is likely to have access to the front and rear of the property so is able to complete a more thorough inspection and therefore able to provide a more detailed report. So a building survey would be possible.

Always provide the postcode so that you can get guidance on what survey best suit your property.
