Top tips for a Finchampstead Home Buyers Survey


Finchampstead is a village in Berkshire and has a bell barrow dating from 2000 BC to 1300 BC in Warren Wood. It has a number of old cottages but most of the housing is in California, particularly the Fernlea estate and the Gorse Ride South estate was built in the 1970s.

The Gorse Ride South estates houses are primarily terraced houses and terraced bungalows built from Swedish timber with precast concrete end panels and solid concrete foundations. They were originally built with an intended lifespan of 10 years in the 1970s but were refurbished in the late 1970s with Swedish timber cladding on the external plywood walls, and tiled roofs over the previous felt roofs.

The current intention is to demolish many or all of these properties and replace them with new build housing of detached and semi-detached form.

Properties in Finchampstead which are located in close proximity to the Long River/Long Water and its tributaries and feeders, in streets such as Longwater Road, 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).
A recent Environmental Search for a property in Foxcote, Finchampstead, Wokingham, Berkshire, RG40 3PE, 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.
Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the Finchampstead area mainly centre around the main road – A321, Lower Wokingham Road, impacting roads such as Priors Wood and Tailsman Close.

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?

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 your property in Finchampstead 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.
