Top tips for a Cirencester Home Buyers Survey


Cirencester is a market town in east Gloucestershire, and home to the Royal Agricultural University, the oldest agricultural college in the English-speaking world, founded in 1840. The railway arrived in 1841 providing a spur to population and housing development.

Cirencester has a large variety of properties, from large modern detached mansions in Baunton Lane, to Victorian terraces in Gosditch Street, to Georgian detached properties in Norcote, to 1920s semi-detached properties in Park View to ex-council houses in Poulton.

New build developments include the apartments in Stratton Court, Gloucester Road amd the detached houses in Blackberry Walk, London Road and the apartments offered as shared ownership in Somerford Road.

Properties in Cirencester which are built in close proximity to the River Churn, in streets such as Beeches Road and Watermoor Road, are in an area where flood warnings and alerts are issued 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,Cirencester, including streets such as Burford Road - A429 and London Road A417, 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 10-30% (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.
Your RICS surveyor inspects drains during a survey of a property in Cirencester, where the drain cover is accessible and on the site of the property.

If the drains are reported to be blocked you may need to employ a drainage company to inspect the drains with CCTV such as Happy Drains Limited.

GloucestershireGloucestershire is a county in south west England, whose county town is the city of Gloucester. It also contains major towns including Cheltenham, Cirencester, Tewkesbury and Stroud.

Cheltenham is perhaps chiefly known for 2 things, the famous racecourse which is the venue of the annual Gold Cup, and GCHQ, a huge building which houses the UK Government's communications heaquarters.

The Forest of Dean, part of the Cotswold Hills and some of the flat fertile valley of the River Severn all feature within the county. Neighbouring counties include Monmouthshire (in Wales), Herefordshire, Warwickshire, Worcestershire, Oxfordshire, Wiltshire, Somerset and Bristol.

Gloucestershire has 2 universities, the University of Gloucestershire and the Royal Agricultural University. The county has many notable religious buildings including the cathedral of Gloucester and the churches of Cirencester and Tewkesbury. Other notable buildings include Calcot Barn in Calcot, a relic of Kingswood Abbey, Thornbury Castle, a Tudor country house, Badminton House, seat of the Dukes of Beaufort, Sudeley Castle, burial place of Catherine Parr and the house of Edward Jenner, the originator of the first smallpox vaccine.

There are a number of royal residences in the county including Highgrove House, Gatcombe Park, and (formerly) Nether Lypiatt Manor.

The county has 2 motorways, the M5 (Exeter to Birmingham) and the M50, which is essentially a spur off the M5 at Eckington which connects with Ross-on-Wye.

Gloucestershire County Cricket Club's home ground is at Bristol, an anomaly which dates back to when the city was part of the county, which is no longer the case.

The county hosts an annual "cheese-rolling" event at Cooper's Hill, near Brockworth and also the Cotswold Games.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A RICS Home Buyers Survey non-intrusively inspects both the external and internal structure of a property for matters which include these, among others; damp, subsidence, infestations, cracks and damage.

Whichever you opt for out of a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, they are both excellent for peace of mind if you are considering buying a property in Cirencester.

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.

Should any issues be flagged up in the Home Buyers Survey, our surveyor will tell you what you need to do to get more in-depth advice on the extent and seriousness of the issue affecting your property in Cirencester and what needs to be done to remedy it.

If you are worried about a crack or cracks or indeed any other defects that you think your property has, we strongly recommend you get a Home Buyers Survey as the cost of remedying the problem might snowball into many thousands of pounds further down the line.

How long does my survey inspection take?

The only definitive answer that can be given is ‘as long as the surveyor needs to complete a thorough inspection of all relevant areas of the property'.

Naturally, each property varies in scope and will have its own individual features that need to be commented upon – you wouldn’t expect a modern 2 bed flat to take the same amount of time as a 7 bed, Victorian manor house!

Many surveyors might, for example, take 2 hours or so doing an inspection but you cannot specifically predict this for any particular property.
