Top tips for a Eton Wick Home Buyers Survey


Eton Wick is a village in Berkshire which has a long and strong association with the world famous college of the same name. It had a sparse population up until the 1880s so most housing there dates from then onwards.

There are many Victorian properties; detached, semi-detached, terraces and cottages, which can all be seen in Alma Road. There are also post-war 1950s and onwards semi-detached houses.

Very modern developments are few, however the Gables in Stonebridge Field is one such recent example – a set of luxury apartments/townhouses in a gated community.

Most properties in Eton Wick are subject to flood warnings and alerts from time to time as the area is located in a flood plain with the Jubilee River to the north and the Thames to the south.

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).
Section F3 of a RICS HomeBuyer Report considers walls and partitions and can include critical information regarding matters such as damp, for which readings are taken, if you're looking to buy a property in Eton Wick.
In a recent RICS HomeBuyer Report for a property in Alma Road, the RICS surveyor noted the following:

"High moisture readings were recorded at low level to either front corner of the reception room and to the left wall of the area below the dog leg of the staircase. These are symptomatic of rising dampness and we would therefore advise that a reputable damp proofing expert is instructed to survey the affected areas and that any recommendations are instigated."

According to the UK Government's Public Health England, an area to the west of Eton Wick, including streets such as Eton Wick Road and Somerville Road, 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.

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.

My estate agent told me I don’t need a survey

Fortunately we only come across this on occasion. As we know, English Law puts the emphasis on the buyer in a conveyancing transaction to complete all reasonable checks on the property prior to exchange.

This is explained by the legal term caveat emptor  which is the principle that the buyer alone is responsible for checking the quality and suitability of goods before a purchase is made.

Although the estate agent’s intentions may be pure in advising against a survey, in the event of a buyer moving into a property and finding that there are defects that would have been identified in the simplest of RICS surveyor checks, there is no recourse to the estate agent after the fact.

If the surveyor does not identify any significant defects, then the buyer can complete the purchase with peace of mind, however if defects are identified then an informed decision can be made on whether to proceed with the purchase prior to being contractually tied in.

A survey does also on occasion provide an opportunity to renegotiate on price based on newly identified problems not spotted on first inspection.

An estate agent is paid on completion as is the vendor therefore their drivers for additional property checks are very different to those of the buyers’.
