Top tips for a Old Woking Home Buyers Survey


Old Woking is a village in Surrey with some very old buildings, including St Peter's Church, which dates to the 12th century and Woking Palace originally dates from 1272.

There are a number of Georgian and Victorian properties and the vast majority of housing in the area is semi-detached, much from the 1920s to the 1950s, including some interwar council housing in the Elm Bridge Estate.

Shared ownership resales can be found sometimes, such as in Baynton Road, where some of the 1950s terrace houses there have been sold in this fashion.

Properties in Old Woking which are built in close proximity to the Hoe Stream or the River Wey, in streets such as Riverside Way, Queen Elizabeth Way and Gresham Park Road, are subject to flood warnings and alerts from time to time.

Some properties in Old Woking may be located in an area which is subject to a Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL).

A recent local authority search for a property in Rosebery Crescent, GU22 9BL revealed that it was within a CIL area.

The Community Infrastructure Levy is a planning charge, introduced by the Planning Act 2008 as a tool for local authorities in England and Wales to help deliver infrastructure to support the development of their area. It came into force on 6 April 2010 through the Community Infrastructure Levy Regulations 2010. Development may be liable for a charge under the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL), if your local planning authority has chosen to set a charge in its area.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A RICS Home Buyers Survey involves an examination of the structure of the inside and the outside of a property.

Choosing the right survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, to get is important however both a HomeBuyers Report and a Building Survey will identify any suspicions of the main defects discussed below.

When should you order a survey?

The right time to book a survey is specific to each client’s situation.

Generally speaking, it is recommended to book your survey for around a week after your mortgage valuation takes place.

This way, if your lender is happy to proceed you are then on track and don’t have the stress of searching for a surveyor to attend your property at the last minute.

Inversely, if your mortgage lender comes back and declines your application after the valuation, you then have breathing space to cancel the survey without fear of incurring cancellation charges.

If it is the case that you have concerns in regards to the condition of the property (be it subsidence or damp etc.) and feel that it will impact on what you are prepared to offer or whether you are even willing to proceed with the purchase, you may decide to book it in before your mortgage valuation in order to minimise costs in an already expensive process.
