Top tips for a Godalming Home Buyers Survey


Godalming has a Parish Church with an early Saxon chancel and a Norman tower. There are many period properties in the area, going back at least as far as the Georgian period, when Godalming was already a successful and growing market town. It grew further when the railway arrived in 1849.

There are 82 listed buildings in the town centre. There are Tudor timber framed buildings and 17th century brickwork buildings in the town centre. The former town hall, distinctive and octagonal and built in the 19th century, is often referred to as 'The Pepperpot'.

There are almost as many detached houses in the locale as semi-detached properties, many of these being very large, and there are plenty of examples of rows of Victorian terrace housing, such as can be seen in Brook Road and the Witley area.

Besides period flats, there are various modern developments, such as the College Green scheme near Godalming College, which offers shared ownership.

Local Tip 1

Properties built in close proximity to Hell Ditch and the River Wey water courses have sometimes been subject to flood warnings and alerts, such as in Meadrow, Chalk Road and Peperharow Road.

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 building survey considers the external joinery, including windows, in depth, and with suggestions about future courses of action, particularly useful if you're buying a property in Godalming.

A recent RICS building survey conducted on a property in Ormonde Road, noted the following: "The window to the side of the rear reception room comprises a single glazed timber picture unit. This door is weathered and, in order to prevent the onset of wet rot attack, requires rubbing down, prior to redecoration. The extent of the weathering is such that this window is at imminent risk from wet rot attack".
Some properties in Godalming are located nearby to areas to be explored for their energy potential by the oil & gas industry – they must be licensed by the Oil and Gas Authority – and such exploration includes areas subject to hydraulic fracturing ("fracking") investigation.

A recent environmental search carried out for a property in Bridge Street for example, flagged up that the property was:

  • built within 4km of an area licensed for onshore energy exploration and production; and
  • built within 4km of a well used for energy exploration or extraction.

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 Godalming 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.
