Top tips for a Bracknell Home Buyers Survey


Most of Bracknell's housing was built post-war, particularly after it was designated a new town in 1949, and there are many ongoing regeneration works. The Old Manor public house is one of the oldest buildings in the town and dates back to the 17fh century.

Jennett's Park is one example of many modern developments in the area (building started in 2007) offering very modern, standard construction homes.

Noise pollution from road and rail in Bracknell is at its highest in the vicinity of the Twin Bridges Roundabout/Berkshire Way where the railway line is located next to a busy roundabout..
Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the Bracknell area are particularly raised around the A329/Berkshire Way, affecting streets nearby such as Beehive Road and Butler Drive. Raised levels of noise pollution from railways in the area accompany the main line which runs alongside the aforesaid Berkshire Way, making this thoroughfare a hot-spot for noise pollution..
Chiney stacks service a fireplace normally found in the living room and are normally built of brickwork and fitted with lead flashings at the junction with the tiling.

In a recent inspection in The Green, Bracknell, Berkshire, RG12 7BG, the mortar joints were not unduly weathered but the joints to the top courses tend to weather more due to their exposed position. If repointing is required in the future, it is recommended that you engage a specialist to quote for carrying out any necessary work which will be relatively expensive as scaffolding will be needed for access and safe working

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.

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 Bracknell incredibly important.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

Mortgage lenders in England and Wales require you to a valuation for the property you are buying so that they can gauge whether the amount you are paying is appropriate. This survey is called a Mortgage Valuation. The mortgage valuation is paid for by you however the results aren't always shared with you as the survey belongs to the mortgage lender. On top of which it doesn't include any survey into potential defects or structural issues that are too often found in properties.

There is also a degree of confusion because the mortgage valuation is referred to as a survey and so many buyers assume this is what is meant by 'have you done your survey?' It is important that when buying a property in Bracknell that you arrange your own Homebuyers Survey that reports on defects or potential issues with the property; either a HomeBuyers Report or a Building Survey. Buying without a survey could leave you at the mercy of undetected defects such as rising damp which can cost thousands to repair and would affect your future sale price if not repaired.
