Top tips for a Witney Home Buyers Survey


The Witney railway station was opened in 1861 which resulted in an influx of population within the town. The full closure of the station occurred in 1965 but many of the houses, built due to the increase in population, are still available. Three story Victorian terrace properties can be found on Corn Street and Grade 2 listed Georgian townhouses can be found on West End.

Burford Road is home to the new development Kingfisher Meadows that offers contemporary living just 13 miles outside of Oxford.

Witney is situated on the River Windrush and so some properties within the town may be subject to flood alerts from time to time. Streets affected by this include Wainerush View, Moorland Road and Witan Way. Properties near the Madley Brook may get flood warnings such as houses on Church Lane and Northfield Farm Lane.

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).
Roads causing noise pollution in Witney include Ducklington Lane, the A40 and the A4095 and streets such as Burwell Drive, Thorney Leys and Woodgreen are likely to be affected by this.
According to the UK Government's Public Health England, most of Witney, including streets such as Curbridge Road and Bedford Tower Hill, 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 3-5% (the percentage is the chance of a property being built where Radon emissions might measure above the action level) in majority of the town, with the north being a potential of 5-10% and the south a potential of 1-3%.

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.

OxfordshireOxfordshire is a county located in the south east of England and can be known by the abbreviated name of Oxon. It's the most rural county in the South East. Although it's reputed to be the furthest location from the sea, it has numerous canals and rivers for boating. King Alfred burnt the cakes in Wantage. Blenheim Palace, built between 1705 and 1722, a Baroque masterpiece, was the birthplace of Winston Churchill and has a landscape garden fashioned by 'Capability' Brown.

Undoubtedly the county is most well-known for the collegiate university town of Oxford itself, with its dreaming spires dating back to the 13th century but there are so many other attractions such as the Cotswolds (from where the River Thames springs from) and even the family-friendly Didcot Railway Centre. The county borders Warwickshire to the north/north-west, Northamptonshire to the north/north-east, Buckinghamshire to the east, Berkshire to the south, Wiltshire to the south-west and Gloucestershire to the west.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A RICS Home Buyers Survey involves an examination of the structure of the inside and the outside of a property aimed at pinpointing issues such as subsidence, damp, cracks, infestation and damage.

The survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is non-intrusive and is highly recommended if you are looking at buying a property in Witney.

NB If you're a first time buyer, you might wish to click on What is a House Survey to find out more, including what happens during the inspection.

Do I have to be present at my survey?

Your RICS surveyor will not normally allow clients to be on site whilst they are inspecting a property.

Firstly, their indemnity insurance only covers themselves, not clients, if any damage was caused to the property during the course of their inspection.

Additionally, as you might expect, they need to concentrate fully on the job at hand and the presence of a client might interrupt their concentration, potentially causing a serious defect to be missed.

Our surveyors always call you post inspection to run through any areas of concern and if you have noticed any areas that look to have a problem we can let your surveyor know about this in advance and they will be sure to pay attention to the matter and note their findings in their report.
