Top tips for a Addlestone Home Buyers Survey


Addlestone has many cottages and houses which were built in the mid-19th century, with an increase in development in the years after 1848 when the railway arrived. At this time, various larger Victorian houses were built as wealthy commuters moved to the area.

The next large expansion of houses, mainly semi-detached, occurred between 1914 and 1939 because of the Bleriot Aeroplane Factory, Lang's Propellor Factory and the Weyman's Coachworks.

Addlestone North has many socially rented properties. There are new build developments such as at Bleriot Gate and Addlestone One, which is in the process of completion. Some of these offer shared ownership.

In section I3 of the HomeBuyer Report, the surveyor advises you of other matters that your legal advisor will need further clarification on form the seller such as:

  • repairing obligations in respect of boundaries;
  • (for leaseholds) repairing obligations in respect of the buildingexterior and communal areas; and
  • (for leaseholds)confirm lease details, to include service charge, ground rent andunexpired lease terms
In section H2 of the HomeBuyer Report, the Building Surveyor should flag any signs of Japanese Knotweed identified on site.

In a HomeBuyers Report on Woodlands Avenue , West Byfleet , Surrey , KT14 6AW, our surveyor stated "Whilst no Japanese Knotweed was visible from our view over the boundary fence, the vegetation growing in this area was dense, and we are therefore unable to rule out the presence of such growth. The customer should be aware that Japanese Knotweed commonly grows on uncontrolled areas such as railway embankments."

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 Addlestone 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.

Is a mortgage valuation a Building Survey?

When you purchase a home in Addlestone using a mortgage your Mortgage Lender will require you to get a mortgage valuation to assess how much your property is actually worth. You have to pay for this survey and often you may assume this is also a structural assessment to identify defects. Unfortunately the mortgage valuation is just for the mortgage lender which means you need to get your own independent survey of the property to make sure there aren't any defects.

There is some confusion as the mortgage valuation is often referred to as a survey and so many buyers assume this is what is meant by 'have you done your survey?' It is important that when buying a property in Addlestone you arrange your own HomeBuyers Survey that reports on defects or potential issues with the property. The two types of HomeBuyers Survey to choose from are the HomeBuyers Report or the Building Survey. Buying without a survey could leave you exposed to any repair costs or defects that you didn't spot. The costs of underpinning a property due to subsidence run into the £10,000s so it is important to get a survey to check for this type of defect particularly.
