Top tips for a Winchester Home Buyers Survey


Winchester is a city in and the county town of Hampshire, which grew out of Venta Belgarum, a Roman town which itself grew out of an Iron Age town. It hosts Winchester Cathedral, a very large Gothic building, which was consecrated in 1093, and Winchester College, established in 1382 and is the UK's oldest public school and still uses its original buildings.

There is a huge variety of properties in and around the area, for example the Pagoda in St James Lane, built in 1848, large detached properties in the Pitt area, built in various eras right up to the present date, large Victorian detached houses in Hatherley Road, 1930s terrace houses in Austen Close, 1930s semi-detached properties in Stanmore Lane and very modern flats in Kings Head Yard.

New build developments include the semid-detached and detached houses in The Green, Winchester Village and town houses in Lansdowne Avenue, among others.

Survey Tip 1

Survey Tip 2

Survey Tip 3

Properties in Winchester which are built in close proximity to the River Itchen, its tributaries and channels, in streets such as Water Lane and St John's Street, are in areas 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, some parts of Winchester, including streets such as Henry Kingsgate Street and Romans' Road, 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.
On a recent search completed it was found that a property located on Sleepers Hill, Winchester SO22 5DU, was within 4km of a well used for energy exploration or extraction.

Any areas to be explored for their energy potential by the oil & gas industry must be licensed by the Department for Energy and Climate Change. Such exploration includes areas subject to hydraulic fracturing ("fracking") investigation.

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.
