Top tips for a Warminster Home Buyers Survey

Warminster's population was around 5,000 at the beginning of the 19th century and there are still a number of properties standing which date back to the Georgian period, such as the Georgian town houses you can see in Boreham Road. There are many Victorian properties, although the expected population increase which normally accompanies the arrival of the railway in the mid-19th century did not happen to Warminster because the train provided people with access to other nearby towns which killed off Warminster's successful market.

Nonetheless you can see excellent Victorian terraced housing in many places, such as in Yard Court and Victorian cottages in Pound Street and Woodcock Road. In the 20th century, the population stayed roughly level, at a little over 5,000 people, until the 1950s and 1960s when it started to rise again. The local authority built some council housing during this century, such as the Queensbury Council Estate. There are any number of standard construction semi-detached houses which were built from the 1930s onwards.

In terms of new build developments, a little over 200 houses of various types were recently built at Tascroft Rise, between Victoria Road and the A36. Help to Buy has been made available for some of these houses.

Warminster has the Were (Swan River) running through it and some properties built in close proximity to this water course in some areas may be subject to flood alerts from time to time, for example in streets such as Wylye Road and Ebble Crescent.

If you are concerned that a property you are looking to buy is built 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, most of Warminster, including streets such as Emwell Street and Cuckoos Nest Lane, are 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 1 -3% (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.
High levels of noise pollution from roads in Warminster mainly centre around the A36 which partially encompasses the town centre and the noise affects nearby residential streets such as Broxburn Road and Deverill Road.

Wiiltshire.pngWiltshire is a county in South West England and its county town is Trowbridge. It has high downland and wide valleys and is arguably most notable for the Stonehenge and Avebury ancient stone circles found on Salisbury Plain. It also contains a number of well known country houses including Longleat and Stourhead. The landlocked county borders Dorset, Hampshire, Oxfordshire, Somerset, Gloucestershire and Berkshire.

Originally Wiltshire's county town was Wilton but the county council is now based in Trowbridge. Salisbury is the county's only city although Swindon, which has five times as many people as Salisbury (around 210,000), is its most populated built-up area.

The M4 is the one motorway going through the county and the main transport hub is Swindon, which has regular direct trains to London Paddington and other major conurbations. The nearest major airport is Southampton.

There are three universities in Wiltshire, all located in Swindon. These are; Cranfield University, a postgraduate-only institution, which has strong links with industry and the business world; the University of the West of England and the University of Bath in Swindon.

Wiltshire has many attractions, some of which are very quirky, including Burlington, a huge nuclear bunker which can accommodate 4,000 people, Longleat Safari Park, the Kennet & Avon Canal Museum in Devizes, the Swindon and Cricklade Railway and Salisbury Cathedral.

Swindon also hosts the Magic Roundabout, which has been voted the UK's scariest road junction.

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.

Some of these defects you may not even see or know what to look for which makes getting a Home Buyers Survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, if you're thinking of buying a property in Warminster, incredibly important.

Does your surveyor check your electrics?

Your RICS surveyor will switch lights in a room on and off to see if the electrical supply is connected while carrying out their inspection for your RICS Home Buyers Survey.

However, they won't carry out any in-depth inspection of the electrical supply or check the wiring for example: this is beyond their scope of work. Their primary focus is on detecting signs and suspicions of major property defects such as subsidence and rising damp.

That said, invariably they can recommend a trusted local electrical tradesperson if you ask them to.
