Top tips for a Englefield Green Home Buyers Survey


Englefield Green is a Surrey village which hosts the wonderful Jacobite-fronted Royal Holloway College of the University of London and is next to Windsor Great Park and borders Egham.

It developed from a hamlet in the 19th century and had some impetus for growth when the railway arrived at Egham station, around 1 mile away, in the mid-19th century.

There are many Victorian semi-detached and terrace houses such as in Northcross Road, Bond Street and Alexandra Road and large detached houses from various periods in Wick Road, Wick Lane and Bishopsgate Road. Some are period, some have been redesigned or have been built recently.

Some of the modern properties in Wick Road have been sold as shared ownership apartments.

Some areas around the Royal Holloway University side of Englefield Green, such as parts of Prune Hill and Clarence Street, which are in close proximity to tributaries, channels and feeders of the River Thames, are 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).
Your RICS surveyor inspects drains during a survey of a property in Englefiled Green, where the drain cover is accessible and on the site of the property.

If the drains are reported to be blocked you may need to employ a drainage company to inspect the drains with CCTV such as Drain Doctor Plumbing, Twickenham, TW20 0QU.
Properties sometimes have issues with ground stability in certain locations in Englefield Green.

In a recent environmental search, taken out for a property in Quincy Road, the report noted that there was a moderate potential for natural ground instability within 50m of the property.

This should not be taken to mean that the property in question actually suffered/suffers from subsidence however as "active subsidence will be dependent on local conditions, such as the proximity of trees or areas where trees have been removed, which require an inspection of the site to identify the nature of the ground on which the property is built."

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A Home Buyers Survey identifies many different defects or potential risks that can be found within a property and is an essential part of any home buying process.

The survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is completed by a Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) registered Surveyor so they are fully trained to provide you with the detail you need to give you the salient facts when you are looking to buy your home in Englefield Green.

If the Home Buyers Survey shows up any such problems, our appointed surveyor will explain to you what you should do to get more in-depth information about the type and scope of the matter and what is required to fix it. 

If you are worried about any defects that you think your property in Englefield Green has, we strongly recommend you get a Home Buyers Survey as the cost of remedying the problem might grow to many thousands of pounds as time progresses.

Is a mortgage valuation a Building Survey?

Mortgage lenders in England and Wales require you to get a valuation for the property in Englefield Green you are buying so that they can gauge whether the amount you are paying is appropriate. This survey is called a Mortgage Valuation. The mortgage valuation is paid for by you but the results aren't always shared with you as the survey actually belongs to the lender. Furthermore, it doesn't include any survey into potential defects or structural issues that are too often found in properties.

There is also a degree of confusion because the mortgage valuation is referred to as a survey and a large number of buyers assume this is what is meant by 'have you done your survey?' It is important that when buying a property in Englefield Green that you arrange your own HomeBuyers survey that reports on defects or potential issues a property has; either a HomeBuyers Report or a Building Survey. Buying without a survey could leave you having to pay out money for any repair costs or defects that you didn't spot. Defects such as rising damp can cost thousands to repair and would affect your future sale price if not corrected.


The average cost for HomeBuyers for fixing works to their property after purchase is just under £2,000, and when some defects affect the resale value of your home, getting an independent HomeBuyers Survey makes a lot of sense, financial and otherwise. Call us on 01344 567 887 to get the best HomeBuyers Survey for your property in Englefield Green.
