Top tips for a West Byfleet Home Buyers Survey


West Byfleet developed around the new station, originally called Byfleet and Woodham, when the railway arrived in 1887 and eventually its boundaries touched those of the original medieval Byfleet village.

There are large houses dating from the Victorian and Edwardian periods in Byfleet whereas West Byfleet's housing dates predominantly from the beginning of the 20th century and onwards.

The Old Avenue area, now designated a conservation area, has large family homes with architecture of various styles. Birchwood Road's properties were built mainly between 1910 and 1920 and has semi-detached houses as well as blocks of 2-bedroom flats.

Throughout the area, detached houses are in the majority, outnumbering all other types put together. There are period flats as well as new build flats, the latter can be found in areas like Camp Hill Road and Lavender Park Road and, as new builds, Help to Buy is available for them.

Survey Tip 3

Buildings in areas to the south and west of West Byfleet, where they are in close proximity to the River Wey and its channels, have been subject to flood warnings and alerts, such as in Dartnell Park Road and Old Parvis Road.

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).
Properties in some areas of West Byfleet may be affected by overhead power lines or mobile phone masts.

A recent environmental search carried out for a property in Woodlands Avenue revealed that there were overhead power lines or mobile phone masts located within 250m of the dwelling.

Overhead power lines and phone masts can be contentious and additionally may have a visual impact on the surrounding area.
Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the West Byfleet area mainly centre around the M25, which runs to its west, affecting any streets nearby such as Woodham Lane and Loncin Mead Avenue.

/div>
Raised levels of noise from rail pollution accompany the railway line which runs on a southwest-northeast axis from West Byfleet station to Byfleet and New Haw station, affecting nearby streets such as Claremont Road and Camphill Road.

It therefore follows that noise levels are at their loudest generally around the point where the M25 crosses the railway line.

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

Does your surveyor check your electrics?

Your RICS surveyor will switch lights in a room on and off to see if the electrical supply is connected while carrying out their inspection for your RICS Home Buyers Survey.

However, they won't carry out any in-depth inspection of the electrical supply or check the wiring for example: this is beyond their scope of work. Their primary focus is on detecting signs and suspicions of major property defects such as subsidence and rising damp.

That said, invariably they can recommend a trusted local electrical tradesperson if you ask them to.
