Top tips for a Stanwell Home Buyers Survey


Stanwell is an urban village in the Spelthorne Borough of Surrey and is around ½ mile south of Heathrow Airport. It includes the semi-rural neighbourhood of Stanwell Moor. It has a building which was originally a free school built in 1624 which has been taken over by a housing association for apartments.

The (now closed) Colnbrook railway station, which opened in the 1880s, caused some development of housing including the streets of small houses behing the southwest Crooked Billet roundabout, built in these times.

The two old settlements grew slightly, notably by the building of council housing estates in Stanwell in 1919 and in Stanwell Moor in 1930. After the Second World War, housing society and council house building began including 300 pre-fabricated homes. There has been sporadic house building since then up to recent times.

New build developments include the 2 bedroom apartments in low-rise blocks and the semi-detached and terrace houses in Laburnam Way.

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).

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A RICS Home Buyers Survey is a visual inspection of the grounds and the internal/external structure of the property and identifies defects such as cracks or damage to the structure of the property, subsidence, damp and infestations.

Some of these defects you may not even see or know what to look for which makes getting a homebuyers survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, if you are thinking of buying a property in Stanwell incredibly important.

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 Stanwell 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.

Do I really need a survey?

Surveys are very useful.

They can help you avoid any expensive surprises that may pop out in the future, as well as giving you peace of mind that the property you are buying is structurally sound.

With the information from the survey you might reconsider whether to buy the property or try and renegotiate the price, if you find it needs lots of repairs, it is reasonable to ask for some money of the price.

Alternatively, you might ask the seller to fix the problems before you buy it.

The last resort is to pull out from buying the property altogether.
