Top tips for a Old Windsor Home Buyers Survey


Old Windsor is an affluent village in Berkshire. Its parish church of St Peter and St Andrew was rebuilt in 1218 then subsequently restored in 1865. St Luke's Church was replaced by a newer building in 1960.

The locale has properties from many eras and with many styles. Burfield Lodge was built in 1796 and is a classic grand country house. Pelling Hill has large detached houses built in the interwar period. Burfield Road has some modern apartments and there are large, 3-storey modern semi-detached properties in Ankerwycke Place.

Many of the properties in Old Windsor which are built in close proximity to the River Thames, in streets such as Ashbrook Road and Straight Road, are subject to flood warnings and 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).
Properties in some areas of Old Windsor may be affected by overhead power lines or mobile phone masts.

A recent environmental search carried out for a property in Thames Avenue, SL4 1QP revealed that there were overhead power lines or mobile phone masts located within 250m of the dwelling.

Overhead power lines and phone masts can be contentious and additionally may have a visual impact on the surrounding area.
According to the UK Government's Public Health England, Old Windsor, including streets such as Thames Avenue and and Datchet 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.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A Home Buyers Survey involves an examination of the structure of the inside and the outside of a property aimed at pinpointing issues such as subsidence, damp, cracks, infestation and damage. The survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is non-intrusive.

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.

If the Home Buyers Survey shows up any such problems, our appointed surveyor will explain to you what you should do to get more in-depth information about the type and scope of the matter and what is required to fix it. 

If you are worried about any defects that you think your property in Old Windsor has, we strongly recommend you get a Home Buyers Survey as the cost of remedying the problem might grow to many thousands of pounds as time progresses.

Is a mortgage valuation a Building Survey?

When you purchase a home in Old Windsor using a mortgage your Mortgage Lender will require you to get a mortgage valuation to assess how much your property is actually worth. You have to pay for this survey and often you may assume this is also a structural assessment to identify defects. Unfortunately the mortgage valuation is just for the mortgage lender which means you need to get your own independent survey of the property to make sure there aren't any defects.

There is some confusion as the mortgage valuation is often referred to as a survey and so many buyers assume this is what is meant by 'have you done your survey?' It is important that when buying a property in Old Windsor you arrange your own HomeBuyers Survey that reports on defects or potential issues with the property. The two types of HomeBuyers Survey to choose from are the HomeBuyers Report or the Building Survey. Buying without a survey could leave you exposed to any repair costs or defects that you didn't spot. The costs of underpinning a property due to subsidence run into the £10,000s so it is important to get a survey to check for this type of defect particularly.
