Top tips for a Cheltenham Home Buyers Survey


Cheltenham, synonymous with Government Communication Headquarters (GCHQ) and the world famous horseracing track, is also known as Cheltenham Spa and is a town on the edge of the Cotswold Hills in Gloucestershire.

You can find all sorts of property in the town, for example the Regency period terrace of Lansdown Crescent (it is particularly known for Regency period properties), Victorian terrace houses such as in Leckhampton, the modernist 1970s bungalows in Prestbury Road and the large detached houses in Charlton Park Gate.

New build developments include the semi-detached properties in Pittville Crescent, the detached houses in Albert Road, the town houses in Lansdown Walk and the apartments in St Georges Road.

Properties in Cheltenham which are built in close proximity to Wyman's Brook, in streets such as Ballinode Close and Mandarin Way, are in an area where flood alerts are issued from time to time and properties which are built in close proximity to the River Chelt, in streets such as Royal Well Lane and Millbrook Street, are in an area where flood warnings as well as 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, parts of Cheltenham, including streets such as Drybrook Walk and Brockweir 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 3-5% (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.
Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in Cheltenham mainly centre around where the M5 runs, affecting nearby streets such as Bamfurlong Lane and Brookfield Road. There is also noise pollution around the railway line; noise pollution is likely to be highest where the railway line crosses the M5, affecting streets such as Badgeworth Road and Brookfield Lane.

GloucestershireGloucestershire is a county in south west England, whose county town is the city of Gloucester. It also contains major towns including Cheltenham, Cirencester, Tewkesbury and Stroud.

Cheltenham is perhaps chiefly known for 2 things, the famous racecourse which is the venue of the annual Gold Cup, and GCHQ, a huge building which houses the UK Government's communications heaquarters.

The Forest of Dean, part of the Cotswold Hills and some of the flat fertile valley of the River Severn all feature within the county. Neighbouring counties include Monmouthshire (in Wales), Herefordshire, Warwickshire, Worcestershire, Oxfordshire, Wiltshire, Somerset and Bristol.

Gloucestershire has 2 universities, the University of Gloucestershire and the Royal Agricultural University. The county has many notable religious buildings including the cathedral of Gloucester and the churches of Cirencester and Tewkesbury. Other notable buildings include Calcot Barn in Calcot, a relic of Kingswood Abbey, Thornbury Castle, a Tudor country house, Badminton House, seat of the Dukes of Beaufort, Sudeley Castle, burial place of Catherine Parr and the house of Edward Jenner, the originator of the first smallpox vaccine.

There are a number of royal residences in the county including Highgrove House, Gatcombe Park, and (formerly) Nether Lypiatt Manor.

The county has 2 motorways, the M5 (Exeter to Birmingham) and the M50, which is essentially a spur off the M5 at Eckington which connects with Ross-on-Wye.

Gloucestershire County Cricket Club's home ground is at Bristol, an anomaly which dates back to when the city was part of the county, which is no longer the case.

The county hosts an annual "cheese-rolling" event at Cooper's Hill, near Brockworth and also the Cotswold Games.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A 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.

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.

The Home Buyer Survey will report on issues found, however you need to make sure that you choose the right Home Buyer Survey for your property because some defects require further detail and this is best served by booking a Building Survey.

You can find a local RICS surveyor by using the search at the bottom RHS of this page.

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 Cheltenham to provide their definitive opinion on if the wall is or is not a load bearing wall.
