Top tips for a Basingstoke Home Buyers Survey


Basingstoke is the largest town in Hampshire, lying across a valley at the River Loddon's source. It has properties from many different periods although it has been substantially redeveloped in the 20th century after the 2nd World War, particularly from the 1960s onwards up to the present day, and therefore a substantial proportion of the housing is modern, dating from this time.

New estates in the locale which have been developed since the 1960s include Lychpit, Chineham, Popley, Winklebury, Oakridge, Kempshott, Brighton Hill, Viables, South Ham, Black Dam, Buckskin and Hatch Warren. Popley, Hatch Warren and Beggarwood have experienced rapid growth in housing recently.

Black Dam mainly consists of 1970s and 1980s detached, semi-detached and terrace housing. Chesterfield Road has some 1950s chalet-style bungalows. Chopin Road has some 1970s bungalows. Beecham Road has two-storey semi-detached and detached properties from the 1990s. 

Brookvale has some older period housing in the Worting Road area, including Victorian terraces (also found in Brookvale North). The Downsland Road area has some semi-detached properties from the 1930s. Buckskin has some late 18th century thatched cottages.

Properties in Basingstoke which are built close to the River Loddon and its tributaries and channels, such as in Basing Road, are subject to flood warnings and 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).
According to the UK Government's Public Health England, an area to the northeast of Basingstoke, including streets such as Pyotts Hill and Hopton Garth, is in a raised radon area, with properties built there having a higher probability than average of experiencing ground Radon emissions.

The raised Radon area has a maximum radon potential of 1 – 3% (the percentage is the chance of a property being built where Radon emissions might measure above the action level).

If you are concerned that a property you are buying is in an area of raised Radon, please click to visit Public Health England's UK Radon Map. Click also to find out more about Radon, Radon property searches and much more.
Getting a RICS home buyers survey when you are looking to buy a property in Basingstoke is a great way of getting a professional's opinion on whether the chimney stack, for example, is likely to need repairs done in the near future.

A recent building survey carried out on a property in Elizabeth Road, for example, noted the following about its chimney stack:

"The stack is in satisfactory condition but the mortar joints are weathered and will need repointing in the next few years. No major defects were noted from a ground level inspection. As the stack is shared with adjoining property, it would be prudent if any repairs are carried out to the whole stack rather than just the part owned by each property as the cost of the scaffolding could be shared."

LondonMiddlesex is a county located in south east of England, however many parts of Middlesex are now commonly known as part of Greater London, with small sections in neighbouring counties.

Strictly speaking Middlesex as a concept is only kept in existence by many people continuing to name it as a county on postal addresses and other contributors such as Middlesex County Cricket Club, whose home ground is at Lord's in St John's Wood, just outside Central London. It is still loved despite it not having any form of administrative function etc.

People hearing about Middlesex assume it was/is a large county because of the amount of Greater London territory (West and North London and Westminster, with the Thames as its southern boundary) which lies within its borders. It is actually the second smallest county in the UK. Middlesex was established in the Anglo-Saxon system from the territory of the Middle Saxons. The largely low-lying county's soil is dominated by clay in its north and alluvium on gravel in its south.

Middlesex contains locations as diverse as Teddington (where the tidal Thames normally finishes), Enfield, Notting Hill, Ickenham, Ealing (where the famous film studios which produced so much early film comedy still exists), Hampstead and Southall.

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 aimed at pinpointing issues such as subsidence, damp, cracks, infestation and damage.

The survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is non-intrusive and is highly recommended if you are looking at buying a property in Basingstoke.

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 the Home Buyers Survey shows up any such problems, our appointed surveyor will explain to you what you should do to get more in-depth information about the type and scope of the matter and what is required to fix it. 

If you are worried about any defects that you think your property in Basingstoke has, we strongly recommend you get a Home Buyers Survey as the cost of remedying the problem might grow to many thousands of pounds as time progresses.

Why does the surveyor need to be local

It is important to get a surveyor to attend the property who is local to your area.

A local surveyor will have extensive local knowledge of the area and will know if there are any issues that occur on properties locally. A local surveyor will also be aware of the market conditions in the area and it is more than likely that they have surveyed properties of a similar condition before.

It is also more efficient to work with a surveyor who is local to Basingstoke or who is used to completing surveys in Middlesex as driving for several hours to complete a survey can delay the report turnaround.
