Top tips for a Albury Home Buyers Survey


Albury is a small village in Guildford borough in Surrey which has a pub, the William IV, which dates back to the 16th century. Albury Estate has a Saxon church within it.

Most houses are detached, some of which are very large, such as can be found in Guildford Lane, and were built in various eras, from the Elizabethan period to very modern. You can also find some park homes and bungalows in Huntwood Lane in the Farley Green area.

Properties in Albury which are built very close to the Tilling Bourne, such as in Mill Lane, are subject to flood warnings and 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).
According to the UK Government's Public Health England, some parts of Albury, including streets such as Guildford Lane and Water Lane, are in a raised radon area, with properties built there having a higher probability than average of experiencing ground Radon emissions.

The raised Radon area has a maximum radon potential of 1 – 3% (the percentage is the chance of a property being built where Radon emissions might measure above the action level).

When should you order a survey?

The right time to book a survey is specific to each client’s situation.

Generally speaking, it is recommended to book your survey for around a week after your mortgage valuation takes place.

This way, if your lender is happy to proceed you are then on track and don’t have the stress of searching for a surveyor to attend your property at the last minute.

Inversely, if your mortgage lender comes back and declines your application after the valuation, you then have breathing space to cancel the survey without fear of incurring cancellation charges.

If it is the case that you have concerns in regards to the condition of the property (be it subsidence or damp etc.) and feel that it will impact on what you are prepared to offer or whether you are even willing to proceed with the purchase, you may decide to book it in before your mortgage valuation in order to minimise costs in an already expensive process.
