Top tips for a Windlesham Home Buyers Survey


Windlesham is a charming village in the Surrey Heath area of Surrey. It used to be part of the Windsor Great Park estate but came into its own in the early 20th century. Valley End contains St Saviour's church which was built in 1867 in red and brown brick. Valley End School was founded in 1859.

The majority of houses in the area are detached and some of them quite large, such as in Westwood Road and Hatton Hill. Many have been built on land where the original house was demolished.

Survey Tip 3

Properties in Windlesham which are located in close proximity to the Windle Brook and its tributaries, channels and feeders, in streets such as New Road (to the south of this) and Swift Lane, are in areas which are subject to flood 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).
The Level 3: Building Survey has an inspection of the roof.

An example of this from a survey on Chertsey Road, Windlesham, Surrey, GU20 6HP stated "The roof over the main part of the house is formed in a pitched slope which spans between the flank wall and the party wall. The slope is covered with man-made slates and special tiles are bedded in mortar along the ridge at the party wall. The slope was probably recovered in recent years. I inspected the slope from ground level only. The slating appears to be in a generally satisfactory condition with the slates laid to straight regular courses where visible. Occasional maintenance will be required if slates became dislodged in the future. However, there is a marked build-up of moss on the slates. This should be removed by a roofing contractor with the necessary access equipment".
Within the Building Survey, the Building Surveyor discusses factors relating to the local area.

In a recent survey in Cricketers Lane, Windlesham, Surrey, GU20 6HA it stated "Windlesham comprises a suburban environment which is formed primarily of low density, residential dwellings. The property is built above a relatively flat topography, and sits upon a naturally wet, very acidic, sandy and loamy soil scape, which does not feature seasonally variable drainage properties, and therefore does not pose negative implications for the future likelihood of the occurrence of subsidence. Chobham Common and Bracknell Forest both lie within 1 mile from the property; to the north west and east of the property, respectively".

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 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 Windlesham 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.

If they find any issues during the inspection of your property in Windlesham, our surveyor will flag them up in the Home Buyers Survey and give you advice on what you should do to solve them. An example of this is where the surveyor finds evidence of woodworm infestation. 

If you are concerned about any other defects with the property you MUST get a Home Buyers Survey as the costs of repairing the defects can run into thousands of pounds.

My estate agent told me I don’t need a survey

Fortunately we only come across this on occasion.

As we know, English Law puts the emphasis on the buyer in a conveyancing transaction to complete all reasonable checks on the property prior to exchange.

This is explained by the legal term caveat emptor  which is the principle that the buyer alone is responsible for checking the quality and suitability of goods before a purchase is made.

Although the estate agent’s intentions may be pure in advising against a survey, in the event of a buyer moving into a property and finding that there are defects that would have been identified in the simplest of RICS surveyor checks, there is no recourse to the estate agent after the fact.

If the surveyor does not identify any significant defects, then the buyer can complete the purchase with peace of mind, however if defects are identified then an informed decision can be made on whether to proceed with the purchase prior to being contractually tied in.

A survey does also on occasion provide an opportunity to renegotiate on price based on newly identified problems not spotted on first inspection.

An estate agent is paid on completion as is the vendor therefore their drivers for additional property checks are very different to those of the buyers’.
