Home Buyer Survey tips for buying in Rushmoor


In 1801 the population in the district was 1,366 which is very small considering the size of the district. From then until 1901, the population sky-rocketed to 39,616 and then more than doubled in the following one hundred years to 2001. This huge increase within the Victorian era means many houses were built during that period, and Aldershot and Farnborough are largely considered Victorian towns. Victorian terrace houses can be found in Aldershot on Queens Road and Matthews Terrace whilst larger properties of this era can be found on York Road and Russet Glade. Farnborough is of similar Victorian style.

Aldershot is a military town with a new development in its south. Wellesley is the largest brownfield regeneration sites in the South East of England that is being developed into new houses for families and larger property owners.

The Walsall Canal may cause flooding for properties in Walsall such as those on Ward Street and Marsh Street. Ford Brook also can cause flooding for Long Street, Albert Street and Meadow Street.

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).

The M3 at the north of the district causes raised levels of noise pollution for Fernshill Road and Trunk Road. Dual carriageways in the town cause noise pollution. Sources include the A325, the A323 and the A331. These dual carriageway mainly affect Aldershot and the roads Holder Road, Underwood Avenue and Fermor Drive within the town that are nearest two of these roads.

According to the UK Government's Public Health England, the south of Rushmoor, including roads in Aldershot such as Willow Way and Badshot Lea 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 5-10% (the percentage is the chance of a property being built where Radon emissions might measure above the action level).

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 Rushmoor 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 Rushmoor 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 0333 344 3234.
