Home Buyer Survey - CoronaVirus

Top tips for a Ascot Home Buyers Survey


Ascot's properties are highly mixed in style.

To the north, there are many Victorian terraced properties and 1930s construction semi-detached houses and to the south there are many highly desirable detached houses built in various periods, from the Georgian to the very recent and these often are situated in large plots of land. Particularly desirable roads include Bagshot Road and Coronation Road.

The racecourse always adds desirability to properties in the area because of its popularity generally and the large number of employees required to service its infrastructure and hinterland.

Properties in Ascot which are built in close proximity to some of the tributaries and feeders of the Virginia Water lake, including streets such as Victoria Road, St George's Lane and Francis Chichester Close, 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).
Ascot, being in the Thames Valley area, has properties built on soil mainly dominated by London Clay, which can cause subsidence problems, but this is naturally offset by having around 7 metres of orange and pale yellow fine-grained sand in a layer above it.
Ambient noise levels in Ascot are generally low; higher levels affect the properties around the A332, particularly at the roundabout where the road crosses the high street, also affecting streets such as Burleigh Road and King's Ride.

Naturally noise levels increase during Royal Ascot Week!

BerkshireBerkshire is a county which touches a small part of the borders of West London. It is a home county (because it borders Greater London) and is often called Royal Berkshire because it contains Windsor and Windsor Castle. It hosts a number of iconic UK landmarks such as Ascot (Ascot Racecourse), Wentworth (Golf Course), Sunningdale (Golf Course), Virginia Water and Windsor Great Park and Eton School. Virginia Water was the first postcode area where the average property price exceeded one million.

Like many of the home counties, there are many essentially commuter dormitory settlements which house London workers. Reading (which is Berkshire's county town) in particular is a larger one and is popular because of its very fast rail links with Central London - there are many one-stop services to London Paddington and it is also due to be the western terminus of the Crossrail line.

Why do I need a survey if I have had a Mortgage Valuation?

A property survey is different from a mortgage valuation report. A valuation is a cursory look at a property to assess how much it is worth and whether it is suitable for a mortgage, this will include a note of any major works that might affect the value of the property however It is not a detailed inspection of the property’s condition.

Before buying a property, it’s a good idea to get a professional to carry out a thorough inspection. The Building survey and Homebuyers report will make you aware of problems with the property structure, repairs or alterations that need to be made and risk associated with the property.

Buying a new home is likely to be the most expensive purchase you ever make so it’s important to make sure you’re making a sound investment that won’t result in you losing money in the long run.
