Top tips for a Brookwood Home Buyers Survey


Brookwood is a Surrey village in a semi-rural setting. Connaught Road is its main road and its housing consists of mixed Victorian terraces, Victorian/1930s/1950s/1970s semi-detacheds and larger detached houses.

Branching off from this main thoroughfare are a number of cul-de-sacs with more modern houses, some backing onto Basingstoke Canal.

Brookwood has expanded over the last century and a half largely because of its railway station and its huge cemetery (which had its own dedicated railway line) which was used as a burial ground in Victorian times for many Londoners because of the pressure on cemetery spaces nearer to the capital.

There are new build developments in the area, such as in Brookwood Heath – many apartments here have been sold under shared ownership.

Properties in Brookwood built in close proximity to the Basingstoke Canal, in streets such as Billesden Road, Dawney Hill and Bagshot Road, are in areas which are sometimes subject to flood alerts from time to time.

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).
A RICS surveyor will always inspect any outbuildings such as garages when conducting a RICS home buyers survey for a property in Brookwood.

A recent building survey conducted on a property in Connaught Crescent noted the following, about the garage inspection, in the report:

"Where visible, the floor is badly cracked and settled so that it is uneven. Two panels in the party wall have cracked and a tapering gap has developed as a result of the movement of the floor. I recommend that the necessary repair work is carried out although this may be quite extensive if further movement is to be prevented. You would also need to liaise with the owner of the adjoining garage regarding work to the panels in the party wall."

Properties in some areas of Brookwood may be affected by environmental constraints.

A recent environmental search carried out for a property in Brookwood Farm Drive revealed that the property was within 250m of an area likely to be impacted by environmental constraints. These included ancient woodland.

Areas which have been designated as having environmental or historical importance may impose constraints on property or land developments or alterations.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

Our RICS Surveyor, during a Home Buyers Survey, inspects both the inside and the outside of your property and searches in particular for subsidence, damp, infestations and any cracks or other damage to the property.

The procedure is non-intrusive. It is highly recommended that you get one, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, if you are thinking of buying a property in Brookwood.

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.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

It is a common misconception that a mortgage valuation is a HomeBuyers Survey and this can leave HomeBuyers exposed to high repair costs that could have been negotiated with the seller.

A mortgage valuation is conducted by the lender’s surveyor to assess the value of the property you are considering buying in Brookwood and they do not provide a detailed report on structural defects. 

A HomeBuyers Survey details defects and includes a full appraisal of the property independently to anyone else including the mortgage lender.

You can use the information to obtain quotes to fix any defects and gives you the evidence to potentially share the costs with the seller.


Most savvy buyers make sure they get a HomeBuyers survey from an independent surveyor to make sure the property they are buying is free from defects. Call us on 01483 802 485 to get the best HomeBuyers survey for your property in Brookwood.
