Survey Tip 3

Properties in Stroud built in close proximity to the River Frome and Stroudwater Navigation and their various channels and tributaries, in streets such as Dudbridge Road and Bridge-Side, are in an area where flood warnings and alerts are issued 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).
According to the UK Government's Public Health England, Stroud , including streets such as [Bath Road A46] and [Dudbridge Road A46], 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 10-30% (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.
The location of wind farms or turbines can be contentious due to visual and auditory impact on the surrounding area.

A recent Environsearch has shown that a property in Pauls Rise, North Woodchester, Stroud, GL5 5PN, is within 4km of existing or proposed wind farms or wind turbines.

GloucestershireGloucestershire is a county in south west England, whose county town is the city of Gloucester. It also contains major towns including Cheltenham, Cirencester, Tewkesbury and Stroud.

Cheltenham is perhaps chiefly known for 2 things, the famous racecourse which is the venue of the annual Gold Cup, and GCHQ, a huge building which houses the UK Government's communications heaquarters.

The Forest of Dean, part of the Cotswold Hills and some of the flat fertile valley of the River Severn all feature within the county. Neighbouring counties include Monmouthshire (in Wales), Herefordshire, Warwickshire, Worcestershire, Oxfordshire, Wiltshire, Somerset and Bristol.

Gloucestershire has 2 universities, the University of Gloucestershire and the Royal Agricultural University. The county has many notable religious buildings including the cathedral of Gloucester and the churches of Cirencester and Tewkesbury. Other notable buildings include Calcot Barn in Calcot, a relic of Kingswood Abbey, Thornbury Castle, a Tudor country house, Badminton House, seat of the Dukes of Beaufort, Sudeley Castle, burial place of Catherine Parr and the house of Edward Jenner, the originator of the first smallpox vaccine.

There are a number of royal residences in the county including Highgrove House, Gatcombe Park, and (formerly) Nether Lypiatt Manor.

The county has 2 motorways, the M5 (Exeter to Birmingham) and the M50, which is essentially a spur off the M5 at Eckington which connects with Ross-on-Wye.

Gloucestershire County Cricket Club's home ground is at Bristol, an anomaly which dates back to when the city was part of the county, which is no longer the case.

Do I really need a survey?

Surveys are very useful. They can help you avoid any expensive surprises that may pop out in the future, as well as giving you peace of mind that the property you are buying is structurally sound.

With the information from the survey you might reconsider whether to buy the property or try and renegotiate the price, if you find it needs lots of repairs, it is reasonable to ask for some money of the price. Alternatively, you might ask the seller to fix the problems before you buy it.

The last resort is to pull out from buying the property altogether.
