Top tips for a Langley Home Buyers Survey


Langley is a village in the easternmost part of Berkshire. Langley Hall was built in the 17th century and is now Langley Hall Primary Academy. There are also almshouses in the village which were built in the 17th century. The village expanded a little when the railway station opened in 1845.

There is a wide variety of properties including large Victorian detached houses such as can be found in Raymond Road and modern detached properties in Chestnut Avenue. Much of the stock was built between the 1920s and 1950s, including the detached houses in Wheatlands Road and the semi-detached properties in Castleview Road.

There are a number of new build developments in the area, such as Marlborough Grove in Langley Road which offers 3 and 4-bedroom houses and modern 1 and 2-bedroom apartments.

Properties in Langley which are built in close proximity to the Grand Union Canal, including streets such as Market Lane/Hollow Hill Lane, Morello Drive and Langley Park 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).
When a RICS surveyor carries out either a building survey or homebuyer report in the Langley area, they will switch the lights on and off but not test the whole electrical system. If they suspect that there is an electrical problem, they will recommend that you consult a local electrical contractor.

A local electrician within the Langley area is Buztech Electrical Services, 3 Merlin Cl, Slough SL3 8QW.
Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the Langley area mainly centre around the main road – M14 and A4, London Road, impacting roads and streets such as Grampian Way and Cheviot Road.

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.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A RICS Home Buyers Survey is a visual inspection of the grounds and the internal/external structure of the property and identifies defects such as cracks or damage to the structure of the property, subsidence, damp and infestations.

Some of these defects you may not even see or know what to look for which makes getting a homebuyers survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, if you are thinking of buying a property in Langley incredibly important.

NB If you're a first time buyer, you might wish to click on What is a House Survey to find out more, including what happens during the inspection.

How long does the survey take?

The time necessary to carry out a survey is relative to each property. Naturally a 6 bed, old Victorian property will take longer to survey than a newly built 1 bed flat as there’s more ground to cover and more defects to look out for. A conservative estimate of around 2 hours can be used as a rough guideline, however the surveyor will spend as much time in the property as necessary in order to make sure all present defects are commented on.

The building surveyor must spend an appropriate amount of time at the property so that they can provide the complete scope of work set out by the RICS for the HomeBuyer Report and the Building Survey.

You can read the scope of work in a HomeBuyer Report here.
