Top tips for a Woking Home Buyers Survey


Woking has a good cross-section of housing stock from Victorian and earlier to modern developments. There are 16th century houses in Old Woking, the oldest part of the area but many new build flat developments in many places.

Kingfield has an ex-council housing estate which was built in the 1950s and Maybury has many Victorian houses, including the classic terraced houses of the period. Housing around Goldsworth Park was built in the 1960s.

Buildings in the Woking area located in the vicinity of Hoe Stream and the River Wey, including in streets such as White Rose Lane and Chestnut Grove, are subject to flood warnings and alerts. At least 20 homes on Walton Terrace in Woking were flooded in September 2016.

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).
Woking has a low incidence of clay soil and the risk of tree related subsidence/heave is low. However, direct damage to shallow footed structures may occur whatever the soil type.
Woking’s ambient average noise levels are generally below 70dB; these are only raised for properties built next to main thoroughfares such as Victoria Way, Chertsey Road and Guildford Road.

Guildford is the county town, however Surrey County Council can be found just up the A3 in the neighbouring town Kingston Upon Thames.

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 is a visual inspection of the grounds and the internal/external structure of the property and identifies defects such as cracks or damage to the structure of the property, subsidence, damp and infestations.

Some of these defects you may not even see or know what to look for which makes getting a Home Buyers Survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, if you're thinking of buying a property in Woking, incredibly important.

NB If you're a first time buyer, you might wish to click on What is a House Survey to find out more, including what happens during the inspection.

Should any issues be flagged up in the Home Buyers Survey, our surveyor will tell you what you need to do to get more in-depth advice on the extent and seriousness of the issue affecting your property in Woking and what needs to be done to remedy it.

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.

Can I negotiate the price with the seller’s solicitor?

Within the survey report there will be a section for your legal advisor. If there are any defects spotted at the property that require further attention it will be noted in this section of the report and your solicitor can flag these with in her enquiries.

Should there be any issues raised by your building surveyor that will be costly in the future, you can discuss options with the seller. It’s typical to negotiate one of two resolutions: either the seller agrees to accept a lower offer price for the property, or they agree to carry out the required repairs as a condition of the sale. In the latter case, this agreement would usually be confirmed in writing as part of the legal contract. Make sure that all correspondence regarding negotiations with the sellers is agreed by both solicitors.
