Properties in Hungerford built in close proximity to the River Kennet, the River Dun and the River Shalbourne, in streets such as Shalbourne Close and North Standen Road, are in an area where flood warnings and alerts are issued from time to time.

According to the UK Government's Public Health England, some parts of Hungerford, including streets such as Smitham Bridge Road and Chiltern Way, are 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).

Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the Hungerford area mainly centre around Bath Road and Eddington Hill.

Berkshire.pngBerkshire 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.

Does the surveyor use thermal imaging?

Thermal imaging is not new technology which has historically been used for identifying electrical issues and energy deficiencies not for discovering major defects within a property

Properties being sold in the UK should have an accompanying EPC which will clarify any energy deficiencies and be inspected by an experienced RICS surveyor reporting on defects such as damp, structural movement, roof/loft concerns and drains with the correct tools.
