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.

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.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A Home Buyers Survey is completed by a qualified RICS surveyor and delivers a visual inspection of the property in Woking and the surrounding garden. The aim of the survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is to identify potential risks or defects that you may not know are there such as cracks or damage to the structure of the property, subsidence, damp and infestations.

If the Home Buyers Survey flags up any of these defects in your property in Woking then our surveyor explains what you need to do to get further advice on how to investigate them and get It resolved. 

If you are concerned about your property has any other defects then you MUST get a RICS Home Buyers Survey as the costs for repairing the defects can run into thousands of pounds. If you can identify the defect before you purchase then you can get quotes for fixing it and either share the costs with the seller, or, in worst case examples, choose not to proceed.

Why do I need a survey?

The conveyancing process operates on the principle of ‘caveat emptor’ which means ‘let the buyer beware’ and it can be broken down in the following way.

Your solicitors make sure the property is legally okay to buy, the mortgage lender makes sure the property is financially okay to buy and the surveyor you hire to carry out a homebuyer report/building survey makes sure the property is structurally okay to buy.

In light of this, the purpose of the survey is to make sure you are aware of any defects present in the property when you buy it. If defects are found, then the survey gives you the opportunity to bargain with the seller, whether it be a reduction in price or an agreement that the seller makes good on the work necessary before purchase.
