Top tips for a Egham Home Buyers Survey


Probably the most striking site in Egham architecturally is the Jacobean-fronted Royal Holloway College (University of London building). Egham's residential areas have predominantly semi-detached housing as well as Victorian terraces, older cottages and much larger houses here and there.

There are council houses in the area, such as around Spring Avenue and late Victorian/Edwardian detached houses such as can be found in the Queens Road area.

Englefield Green has some excellent new developments – the area is particularly popular with students for its proximity to Royal Holloway College. 

Virginia Gate offers some stunning new build properties including, for example, a 5 bedroom end of terrace villa. The King's Meadow development offers one and two bedroom apartments along the River Thames, some of which are sold under shared ownership terms.

There are areas to the north and west of Egham, particularly in the area between the High Street and the By-Pass, centring on Crown Street, which receive flood alerts.

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).
Inspection of the roof forms a material part of the RICS Surveyors inspection.

In a Building Survey on Egham Hill, Egham, Surrey, TW20 0BD, our surveyor spotted the slopes had not been recovered as bitumen felt was not present under the slates. The visible slating appeared to be in generally satisfactory condition but with no obvious slipped slates visible from ground level. There was at least one slipped slate at the base of the front slope as a chink of daylight is visible in the roof space. In the short term, the slating should be overhauled to ensure that any defective slates are replaced with sound matching slates. Occasional maintenance will be required in the future if slates slip from their positions.
Painting airbricks is a cosmetic mistake many home owners make as it affects the properties ventilation.

It is recommend that painted over airbricks are replaced with terra cotta airbricks and additional airbricks inserted to maximise airflow through the cellar as this will help to reduce humidity and the risk of fungal attack to the ground floor timbers.

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 Egham 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.

Level 2 HomeBuyer Report with a Valuation

A HomeBuyer Report, also known as a Home Buyers Survey, is generally suitable for:

  • Bungalows
  • Flats
  • Standard construction houses

The majority of Egham's leasehold flats require only a RICS HomeBuyer Report but for any Victorian conversions, a Building Survey may well be required.
