Top tips for a Farnham Common Home Buyers Survey


Farnham Common is a very affluent village in Buckinghamshire. Its main areas are Farnham Common and Farnham Royal. A few of the large old period houses in the area still remain such as Yew Place, Farnham Park (once called The Chase) and Caldicott. Yew Place was formerly known as The Rectory, part of which dates back to the time of King John.

Houses in the area are predominantly detached and many are very large; they are either period properties or modern rebuilds.

New build developments include detached properties in Beeches Drive and semi-detached properties in Hawthorne Lane.

According to the UK Government's Public Health England, an area to the west of Farnham Common, in streets such as Hawthorn Lane and Crow Piece Lane, 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.
A recent Environmental Search for a property in Kennedy Close, Farnham Common, Slough, SL2 3NB, stated that the dwelling was within 50m of an area with potential for natural ground instability.

The British Geological Survey has assessed the area of search as having moderate potential for natural ground instability. This does not necessarily mean there is cause for concern in terms of the property's stability. Active subsidence will be dependent on local conditions, such as the proximity of trees or areas where trees have been removed, which require an inspection of the site to identify the nature of the ground on which the property is built. A house buyers survey is advised to look for signs of property damage that may indicate poor natural ground conditions.
Farnham Common is a relatively affluent area with very large properties to be found in streets like Blackpond Lane, Wood End Close, Rowanhurst Drive, One Pin Lane and Old Beaconsfield Road.

These large properties have been built in various periods, from, say the Georgian right through to the present recent years and many have been refurbished, redeveloped or redesigned. With that, we'd recommend getting a Level 3 RICS Building Survey if you're thinking of buying one.

People often tend to think in terms of age when they think of getting this highest level of defect survey, however the sheer scale of some of these properties always requires more time on site for an inspection and a rigorous consideration of, for example any cold bridging where extensions and annexes have been added more latterly to an original property.

BuckinghamshireBuckinghamshire is a county which touches the western edges of the Greater London Area and is mainly rural in aspect. Many of the towns and villages on the eastern edges of the county serve as commuter dormitories for London workers, such as Amersham, Chesham and the Chalfonts. The section of the Chiltern Line, which links Aylesbury with London Marylebone via Amersham, has streamlined this daily journey for many workers in the City of London. Buckinghamshire's county town is Buckingham, but there are a number of larger settlements such as High Wycombe and Aylesbury. 

There is considerable affluence in many parts of the county, such as around Fulmer, Gerrards Cross, Farnham Common and Stoke Poges. Denham Golf Club, which has its own station on the Chiltern Line, is the haunt of many celebrities who have dwellings in the area. The county is the site of the first modern private university to receive a charter, the University of Buckingham. Buckinghamshire has number of areas of outstanding natural beauty, such as Burnham Beeches and the Chilterns (including the Chess Valley).

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

Many mistakenly think that a mortgage valuation is the same as a HomeBuyers Survey and the consequence is that home buyers can subsequently have to shell out money for repairing faults and defects that could well have been part of the bargaining process with the seller on purchase. The surveyor appointed by the lender conducts a mortgage valuation to estimate the value of the property: this survey is not concerned with detailing structural defects.

A HomeBuyers Survey lists and reports on defects and includes a full appraisal and valuation of the property you are thinking of buying in Farnham Common which is completely independent of the mortgage lender. This knowledge can be used to get quotes for the cost of fixing defects and, most importantly, gives you evidence which can be used to bargain with the seller about sharing any such cost. To get yours, call 01344 567 887.
