Top tips for a Hersham Home Buyers Survey


Hersham is a village in Surrey whose housing is generally low-rise and diverse. It centres in Hersham Green, an open space. Hersham railway station was built in the mid-19th century and the village expanded a little after it arrived. Its Anglican Church of St Peter was built in 1887 but in a 13th century style.

Housing in the area is predominantly of the semi-detached variety, mainly built between the wars, although there are a larger proportion of detached properties in Hersham South.

Whiteley Village in the area is a private retirement village built in the early 20th century and has many listed buildings, and the properties were built in the Arts & Crafts style.

There are large, modern detached properties in Onslow Road and modern purpose-built flats in Queens Road. Shared ownership sales have been available in Mayfield Road.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A RICS 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 buy your home.

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 Hersham 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.
