The village of Ewell is to be found in Surrey in the borough of Epsom and Ewell. Ewell is close to the southern boundary of Greater London and access is readily available to the capital and the M25 from which both Gatwick and Heathrow airports can be easily reached. Ewell’s largest landmark is the impressive Bourne Hall in the centre of the town which hosts a public library, subterranean theatre, gymnasium, café, and local museum and is a popular venue for local events.
If you live or are planning to live in or around Ewell and your property has a problem with damp or timber decay you need to ensure that you instruct an established and reputable damp proofing company who are members of the Property Care Association (PCA). Tapco HomeDry have been in the business since 1971 and are recognised as one of London, Surrey and Home Counties most respected and thorough specialists in treating problems with rising damp, penetrating damp, water damage, dry rot and woodworm.
A survey of this nature may have been requested by your lender, this can seem a daunting prospect, particularly if you are a first time buyer, but you should be assured that this is common practice and should not deter you from your purchase. It is important to ensure that the property is free from any damp and timber defects and, remember, that even if such defects were to be found it may be possible to negotiate a reduction to cover the costs.
If the current owner advises that there are guarantees we strongly advise you to check which areas of the property have been treated – do not assume that the entire property is covered! Also make sure that any company is still trading, so the guarantee remains valid
