Top tips for a Milford Home Buyers Survey


Milford is a large, affluent village in Surrey with a railway station, has many detached houses, some dating back to the Georgian period. It is home to the fantastic Milford House, built in the first half of the 18th century. 

There are semi-detached houses from all periods of the 20th century there and some more modern properties, such as the terraces in Reris Grange Close and the modern purpose-built flats of Butlers Place and Manor Green (Lower Manor Road).

Properties built in close proximity to the River Wey and its tributaries and channels around Milford are sometimes subject to flood alerts and flood warnings are sometimes issued for properties around Eashing to its north for example in the Hollow and Lower Eashing.

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, 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 TapCo, 12 Thorkhill Road, Thames Ditton, SURREY, KT7 0UE.
Raised levels of noise pollution from railways in the Milford area mainly centre around where the railway crosses Station Lane, where Milford Station is located.

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 Milford.

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 Milford 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 defect survey?

Mortgage lenders in England and Wales require you to a valuation for the property 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 however the results aren't always shared with you as the survey belongs to the mortgage lender.

On top of which 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 so many buyers assume this is what is meant by 'have you done your survey?' It is important that when buying a property in Milford that you arrange your own Homebuyers Survey that reports on defects or potential issues with the property; either a HomeBuyers Report or a Building Survey.

Buying without a survey could leave you at the mercy of undetected defects such as rising damp which can cost thousands to repair and would affect your future sale price if not repaired.

Homebuyers surveys are different to Mortgage Valuations, see an example from SAM conveyancing
