Top tips for a Crowthorne Home Buyers Survey


Crowthorne was a small hamlet but became a larger village in the late-19th century after Wellington College and Broadmoor opened.

The village has some very large detached Victorian properties, such as can be found in Wellingtonia Avenue and The Devils Highway as well as more modern detached properties such as can be seen in Priors Wood. 

You also find chalets and bungalows built in many eras of the 20th century. There are a fair number of semi-detached houses built between the 1930s and the 1970s.

Properties in Crowthorne which are located in close proximity to the Emm Brook, in streets such as Ashdale Park and Hollybush Drive, 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).
Properties in various parts of Ilford, including streets such as Copthorne Avenue, and Tamswood Hill, may well be affected by the Crossrail schemes.

If you are buying a property in the area and this is of concern to you, you may well wish to consider purchasing an Energy & Infrastructure Report. or a report specific to either of the two rail schemes mentioned.
Properties in some areas of Ilford are built in designated smoke control areas.

A recent local authority search done for a dwelling in Copthorne Avenue, Ilford IG1 2SQ noted that the property was in such a smoke control area.

Under the terms of Section 20 of the Clean Air Act 1993, smoke emissions from all buildings are prohibited unless an exemption has been made by the Secretary of State under Section 21 of the Act.

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.

When should you book your survey?

A survey from booking to getting your report should normally take around 2 to 3 weeks depending on the time of year (busy periods are July, August and December).

The best advice is to instruct your surveyor at the same time as you instruct your solicitor. The reason being is that your solicitor tells you of any legal reason to not buy the property and the surveyor will look to tell you if their is any visual reason to stop buying or to renegotiate the selling price.
