Properties in some areas of Pangbourne are located in or near areas designated as being of environmental and historical importance.

Environmental and historical constraints limit and restrict home owners from making any modifications including adding in an extension to their properties.

A recent Environmental Search for a property in Meadowside Road, Pangbourne, Reading RG8 7NQ revealed that dwellings within 250m of the property are likely to be affected by environmental constraints.
Properties in some areas of Pangbourne have a potential risk of being affected by river and surface flooding. A recent Environmental Search for a property in Meadowside Road, Pangbourne, Reading RG8 7NQ revealed that there was potential risk of both surface and river flooding occurring within 250m of the dwelling.

Sometimes you will be advised to take out a Flood Risk Report examining these possibilities more deeply. Click to view a Flood Risk Report
Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in Pangbourne's area mainly stem from traffic from the A340, particularly in the Tidmarsh Road area affecting nearby streets such as Pangbourne Hill and Station Road.

Rail traffic running through Pangbourne also generates higher levels of noise pollution for nearby streets such as Shooters 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.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

When you buy a home with a mortgage your Mortgage Lender requires 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 think this is also a structural assessment to identify defects. Sadly the mortgage valuation is just for the mortgage lender which means you need to get your own independent survey of the property that's caught your eye in Pangbourne 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 Pangbourne that 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. Get your HomeBuyers Survey - call 0118 324 0432.
