Home Buyer Survey tips for buying in Wokingham


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.

Berkshire 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.

What happens if access for the home buyers survey is denied?

On the day of the survey, if access is denied by the seller or the estate agent, then the surveyor will inform you and then look to re-book for another day.

In cases where access is denied, the surveyor will mostly likely charge a fee for this and the seller/estate agent should cover this cost as the refusal of access was not the buyer's fault.
