Top tips for a Bicester Home Buyers Survey


The oldest building in Bicester are the medieval church of St. Edburg and two post Dissolutions houses that were constructed by medieval material. These buildings are mainly built from grey limestone and some ginger ironstone. In the 19th century transport within the town’s transport connections were enhanced with the bringing about of the railway line and imports from the canal.

There are many Victorian houses within the town including semi-detached properties on Chapel Street, and detached properties on Coopers Green. New builds are in the Kingsmere Development, Perth Road, and the Hawkswood Development, Whitelands Way. These are contemporary homes of varying sizes and styles.

Langford Brook and other tributaries runs through Bicester which means some properties may be subject to flood warnings. In the west of the town this includes Laurence Way and Kennedy Road, in the centre it affects Bucknell Road and Hunt Close, and in the east, Chaffinch Road and Pipits Croft.

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).
The M40 causes noise pollution for the town, as well as the A4421/A4095 that act as a ring road. The southern part is the most affected such as Sandown Road and Whitelands Way. Residential roads in between two main roads may also be affect by raised levels of noise pollution including Kestrel Way and The Parade.
According to the UK Government's Public Health England, majority of Bicester, including roads such as George Street and Buckingham Road, 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% with some areas having a 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.

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.

Can a RICS surveyor comment on the removal of a load bearing wall?

If the seller has removed a wall, or you are planning to remove a wall in the property then a RICS surveyor cannot definitively confirm if the wall is or is not load bearing because their inspection is only visual.

The surveyor may give their opinion, however it will come with a caveat that you should obtain an intrusive assessment to confirm.

Before the removal of a load bearing wall, you should always instruct a local structural engineer in Bicester to provide their definitive opinion on if the wall is or is not a load bearing wall.
