Top tips for a Wokingham Home Buyers Survey


Wokingham has many different architectural styles but in general, the town’s housing has been greatly influenced by its prominence in the brick-making industry during Victorian times.

Many of the town’s churches and hospitals have the distinct Wokingham brickwork; cladding and facades are more of a rarity.

Rose Street (Shute End), Peach Street and Denmark Street contain some buildings which date back to the 14th century. In contrast, Broad Street has very modern commercial and residential buildings however throughout Wokingham you find pitched roofs, dormer windows and bare brick rather than, for example, white-washing.

Properties in Wokingham immediately adjoining the Emm Brook are in a flood warning area, including those built in streets such as Molly Millars Lane and Ashville Way.

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).
Noise pollution levels in and around Wokingham from roads are raised in properties built in roads close to the M4 and A329(M) in streets such as Diamond Jubilee Way and Green Lane. From railways, the noise pollution is along the line of the railway through Wokingham Station and mainly from trains going to and from Reading and to and from London. There is less pollution on the route connecting Wokingham with Guildford and Gatwick Airport purely by virtue of there being fewer trains on this route.
A recent Local Authority Search bought for a property a client was looking to buy in William Heelas Way, Wokingham RG40 1LN revealed many entries relating to plans to build 650 new dwellings in Buckhurst Farm, London Road including planning permissions applied for concerning items such as access roads, parking and landscaping.

These kinds of details can give your property lawyer grounds to make further enquiries and also can flag up matters which might affect your future enjoyment of a property and ultimately therefore your decision whether to go ahead with a purchase or not.

BerkshireBerkshire 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.

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

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.

Should any issues be flagged up in the Home Buyers Survey, our surveyor will tell you what you need to do to get more in-depth advice on the extent and seriousness of the issue and what needs to be done to remedy it. 

If you are worried about a crack or cracks or indeed any other defects that you think your property in Wokingham has, we strongly recommend you get a Home Buyers Survey as the cost of remedying the problem might snowball into many thousands of pounds further down the line. As an example of the costs, underpinning a property due to subsidence can be upwards of £10,000.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

People, particularly first time buyers, have been known to confuse a mortgage valuation with a HomeBuyers Survey. This confusion can prove costly and end up in a home buyer having to spend money on expensive repair costs which should have been divided up with the seller with this reflected in a reduction in the original sale price. Your lender conducts its own mortgage valuation to calculate the value of the property you are trying to buy in Wokingham and this is in no sense a report on structural defects.

A HomeBuyers Survey notes defects as well as including a full valuation of a property independently of the mortgage lender or anyone else. The information in it can be used to get quotes for the cost of fixing any issues and presents evidence for bargaining with the seller about sharing repair costs, if appropriate, or even deciding not to go ahead with buying a property. Call 0118 324 0432 and speak to our experts to book your HomeBuyers Survey.
