Home Buyer Survey tips for buying in Sunningdale


Sunningdale has many properties which were built in the late Victorian period - they often have date marks on them which are most frequently in the period 1890 - 1910. These properties are often cottage-style rather than house-style.

The area also has a fair number of semi-detached houses and bungalows which were finished in the immediate post-war period; these can be found in the Coworth Estate and around Bedford Lane.

There are also some huge detached properties in large plots of land. These are often relatively - or very - modern: the original property was knocked down and a fresh home built to replace it.

Properties in Sunningdale which are built in close proximity to some of the tributaries and feeders of the Virginia Water lake, including in streets such as Bedford Lane, Broomhall Lane and Charters 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).

Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the Sunningdale area accompany the A30/London Road and the A329/London Road/Blacknest Road. Raised levels of noise pollution from railways in the area accompany the overland line crossing the A30/London Road.

Sunningdale properties are built on soil which generally consists of naturally wet and very acid sandy and loamy soils, making the area less susceptible to subsidence than many areas in England’s South.
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.

Focus and limitations of the HomeBuyer Report

The HomeBuyer Report service is specifically designed for lay people that want a professional opinion at an economic price for the property they are buying. It is, therefore, necessarily less comprehensive than a level 3 building survey.

The focus of the surveyor is on assessing the general condition of the main elements of the property you are buying, and identifying and evaluating the particular features that affect its present value and may affect its future resale. The Building Surveyor's inspection is not exhaustive, and no tests are undertaken. There is, therefore, a risk that certain defects may not be found that would have been uncovered if testing and/or a more substantial inspection had been undertaken. This is a risk that the client must accept.

However, where there is ‘a trail of suspicion’ the surveyor ‘must take reasonable steps to follow the trail’. These ‘reasonable steps’ may include recommending further investigation.
