Top tips for a Datchet Home Buyers Survey


Datchet is an affluent village in Berkshire which, although the railway arrived in the 1850s, did not greatly increase its population.

There are a fair selection of detached properties there from many periods, from Georgian to very modern developments, and a fair number of semi-detached houses built from the 1920s onwards.

Much of the older properties are in and around the High Street, whereas there were no properties in The Avenue and Slough Road until the 1880s (Windsor Road dates from the 1850s).

There are some new developments in the area, particularly around Windsor Road, such as The Acelan, The Thalys and The Sapsan, all of which are purpose-built flat blocks and some flats are sold under shared ownership.

Most of Datchet's area is in the flood plain of the River Thames and the village has the Queen Mother Reservoir to its west. Dwellings in its locale 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, some parts of Datchet, including streets such as Manor House Lane and Datchet Place 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.
Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in Datchet are highest around the route of the M4, affecting nearby streets such as Major's Farm Road and Riding Court Road.

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.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

Mortgage lenders in England and Wales require you to get a valuation for the property in Datchet 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 but the results aren't always shared with you as the survey actually belongs to the lender. Furthermore, 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 a large number of buyers assume this is what is meant by 'have you done your survey?' It is important that when buying a property in Datchet that you arrange your own HomeBuyers survey that reports on defects or potential issues a property has; either a HomeBuyers Report or a Building Survey. Buying without a survey could leave you having to pay out money for any repair costs or defects that you didn't spot. Defects such as rising damp can cost thousands to repair and would affect your future sale price if not corrected.


The average cost for HomeBuyers for fixing works to their property after purchase is just under £2,000, and when some defects affect the resale value of your home, getting an independent HomeBuyers Survey makes a lot of sense, financial and otherwise. Call us on 01344 567 887 to get the best HomeBuyers Survey for your property in Datchet.
