Top tips for a Esher Home Buyers Survey


Esher is on the old London to Portsmouth road and has a wonderful grand 18th century house called Claremont near its town centre (built 1768 and owned, but never lived in, by Clive of India).

Esher's housing mainly consists of 1920s and 1930s detached houses on private estates, as well as Victorian workmen's cottages. There are fine Arts & Crafts-inspired houses, built in the 1920s and 1930s, in Clive Road and Clare Hill, which have red brick, leaded windows and gable ends.

There are plenty of semi-detached and detached 1920s and 1930s houses around Esher Station and Hinchley Wood.

There are also newer developments, many of them large and very well-appointed. Hinchley Park in Hengest Avenue offers a fair spectrum of new builds, from one-bed maisonettes to 5-bedroom houses.

Dwellings in the area to the north and west of Esher station, including in streets such as Ember Lane and Lower Green Road, receive flood alerts and warnings, particularly the homes built around Thames Ditton and Esher Golf Club.

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).
Ridge tiles are often used on properties in Esher and should be checked by you, or your surveyor during the purchase of your property.

Ridge tiles may appear to be firmly bedded atpresent but the mortar tends to weather and eventually the tiles will needto be rebedded - this may take several years depending on the weather conditions.
Felt is often used underneath tiles on the roof and your Building Surveyor should check this.

In time, exposed felt may break up and if this occurs, remedial action will be required by a reputable roofing contractor such as Esher Roofing, 20 Dalmore Avenue, Claygate, Esher, Surrey, KT10 0HQ on 01372 815 938.

Guildford is the county town, however Surrey County Council can be found just up the A3 in the neighbouring town Kingston Upon Thames. It was in Dorking in Surrey at the White Horse where Charles Dickens wrote much of his Pickwick Papers and apparently based many of the characters on local people

The University of Surrey can be found in Guildford, however Surrey also hosts the Royal Holloway University of London (Egham), University of Law & Kingston University. HG Wells, writer of War of the Worlds, lived at Horsell Common in Woking in Surrey when he wrote the book and this is where, in the book, the Martians first land on Earth.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

Our RICS Surveyor, during a Home Buyers Survey in Esher, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, 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.

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.

Should any issues be flagged up in the Home Buyers Survey, our surveyor will tell you what you need to do to get more in-depth advice on the extent and seriousness of the issue affecting your property in Esher and what needs to be done to remedy it.

If you are worried about a crack or cracks or indeed any other defects that you think your property has, we strongly recommend you get a Home Buyers Survey as the cost of remedying the problem might snowball into many thousands of pounds further down the line.

Why do I need a survey?

The conveyancing process operates on the principle of ‘ caveat emptor ’ which means ‘let the buyer beware’ and it can be broken down in the following way.

Your solicitors make sure the property is legally okay to buy, the mortgage lender makes sure the property is financially okay to buy and the surveyor you hire to carry out a homebuyer report/building survey makes sure the property is structurally okay to buy.

In light of this, the purpose of the survey is to make sure you are aware of any defects present in the property when you buy it.

If defects are found, then the survey gives you the opportunity to bargain with the seller, whether it be a reduction in price or an agreement that the seller makes good on the work necessary before purchase.
