Top tips for a Twyford Home Buyers Survey


Twyford is a large, affluent village in Berkshire near Reading which developed from an agricultural settlement when the railway arrived in 1838. 

The greatest housing expansion, however, has taken place since the Second World War, particularly in the last 50 years, with the construction of several estates north and south of the village.

New build developments include a number of modern detached houses in Mohawk Way in Woodley, among others.

Survey Tip 1

Survey Tip 3

Properties in Twyford which are built in the vicinity of the River Loddon and the Old River, such as Old Bath Road and Edward Road, are subject to flood warnings 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 sometimes have issues with ground stability in certain locations in Twyford .

In a recent environmental search, taken out for a property in Springfield Rark, the report noted that there was man made mining cavities within 250m of the property.

This should not be taken to mean that the property in question actually suffered/suffers from subsidence however as "active subsidence will be dependent on local conditions, such as the proximity of trees or areas where trees have been removed, which require an inspection of the site to identify the nature of the ground on which the property is built."

Properties in various parts of Twyford, including streets such as Springfield Park and Waltham Road - B3018, may well be affected by the Crossrail 2 schemes.

If you are buying a property in the area and this is of concern to you, you may well wish to consider purchasing an Energy & Infrastructure Report. or a report specific to either of the two rail schemes mentioned.

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.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A RICS Home Buyers Survey is a visual inspection of the grounds and the internal/external structure of the property and identifies defects such as cracks or damage to the structure of the property, subsidence, damp and infestations.

Can you attend the Survey with the surveyor?

Most surveyors do not allow the client on site whilst carrying out their inspection. They have a long list of defects that they need to check for and they cannot be distracted from the job in hand as they can be held to account for any missed defects.

The surveyors' professional indemnity insurance does not cover for bringing any third party on site with them while they are completing their inspection, therefore, in the event of any damage being sited by a vendor while the survey is taking place, the surveyor would be liable and uninsured.

On the day of the survey if you have any concerns you can make the surveyor aware of this so they can pay special attention to these areas during their inspection.
