Top tips for a Farnham Home Buyers Survey


Farnham has a fair number of older buildings, including those which date back to the Georgian period and the ruins of Waverley Abbey, the first Cistercian abbey in England, date back to 1128.

The town rapidly expanded in the mid to late Victorian period, with the arrival of the railway and the expansion of the British Army barracks in nearby Aldershot: this is evidenced by the number of Victorian-era properties.

The town has a number of attractive houses from various periods and also has much modern standard construction building: the town's population has doubled from 20,000 in the immediate post-war period to recent times. New build schemes are also much in evidence, including for example the estate in Tongham, many flats of which are being sold under shared ownership terms.

Properties in Farnham which are built in close proximity to the River Wey, including in streets such as Firgrove Hill and Crosby Way, are in areas which 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, a considerable part of Farnham's north and an area to its south-west, including streets such Stoke Hills and Stephendale Road is in a raised radon area, with properties built there having a higher probability than average of experiencing ground Radon emissions.

If you are concerned that a property you are buying is in an area of raised Radon, please click to visit Public Health England's UK Radon Map. Click also to find out more about Radon, Radon property searches and much more.
Where roof tiles are laid to straight regular courses a Farnham based building surveyor will need to inspect if they appear to be in satisfactory condition where visible (the inner slopes of rear extension may not be visible from ground level). A closer inspection from a ladder may reveal the presence of cracked tiles.

In a recent inspection in Bridgefield, Farnham, Surrey, GU9 8AN, the mortar in which the ridge and hip tiles are bedded was not unduly weathered. In cases like this tiles may need to be rebedded in the future if severe weathering occurs. The valley between the inner rear slopes was lined in lead sheet. With a valley like this it is recommend that any debris that builds up is cleared away to allow water to run off properly and an inspection should be carried out by a roofing contractor every 2-3 years to check the valley.

SurreySurrey is located in the south east of England and is well known for its high property prices and leafy areas. 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?

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 Farnham.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

People, particularly first time buyers, have been known to confuse a mortgage valuation with a HomeBuyers Survey.

This confusion can prove costly and end up in a home buyer having to spend money on expensive repair costs which should have been divided up with the seller with this reflected in a reduction in the original sale price.

Your lender conducts its own mortgage valuation to calculate the value of the property you are trying to buy in Farnham and this is in no sense a report on structural defects.

A HomeBuyers Survey notes defects as well as including a full valuation of a property independently of the mortgage lender or anyone else.

The information in it can be used to get quotes for the cost of fixing any issues and presents evidence for bargaining with the seller about sharing repair costs, if appropriate, or even deciding not to go ahead with buying a property.
