Top tips for a Didcot Home Buyers Survey


Didcot's White Cottage is the oldest dwelling still standing in the town and dates to the early 16th century. The following small houses are also still standing and were built in the early to mid-17th century: The Nook, Thorney Down Cottage and Manor Cottage.

The town expanded considerably after the railway arrived in 1839 and there are surviving properties from this period, the mid-Victorian. You can find Victorian cottages on Wessex Road (as well as more modern properties), detached homes from the era in the High Street and Victorian terraces in the Northbourne Conservation Area.

The council built a large estate in the 1920s (around Wessex Road, Kynaston Road, Newlands Avenue and Hagbourne Road; many of these houses were redeveloped in the recent period) and in 1928/29, the Georgetown Garden City Estate (private) was built which centred on Wantage Road, Foxhall Road and Glyn Avenue (mainly detached, semi-detached and terraced housing).

After the war and up to the 1970s, many council and private estates were built, such as the Fleetway Estate of the 1970s.

There are some very recent developments and plans for more housing in the pipeline. More than 4,000 homes are planned for Valley Park, next to Great Western Park. Many of these are set to be sold under shared ownership terms.

Properties built in the vicinity of Hakka's Brook and its channels and tributaries in the Hagbourne area, such as in Main Road and Blewbury Road, are subject to flood warnings and alerts 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).
Properties in some areas of Didcot may be subject to environmental constraints, by virtue of being located in or near areas designated as being of environmental and historical importance.

A recent Environmental Search taken out for a property in Chilton Field Way, Chilton, Didcot, OX11 0SQ revealed that the dwelling was located within 250m of an area likely to be impacted by environmental constraints. Homes in the area may face strictures regarding land developments or alterations.
Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the Didcot area are highest around the main A4130 and affecting nearby streets such as Mendip Heights.

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?

    Our RICS Surveyor, during a Home Buyers Survey in Didcot, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, inspects both the inside and the outside of your property and searches in particular for subsidence, damp, infestations and any cracks or other damage to the property. The procedure is non-intrusive.

Does the surveyor climb onto the roof of the property?

The surveyor carries with them a ladder that allows them access to areas above head height. Due to Health and Safety, a RICS surveyor is not allowed to go higher than 3 meters.

The surveyor will use powerful binoculars to inspect the roof of a property to see signs of damage to the roof, tiles, chimney, soffets and fascias.

Flat roofs can be inspected from opening a window in the property and looking out to view the same.

If there is a need for a closer inspection of the roof, then scaffolding will be required to be obtained to allow safe access to the roof.

It is very rare for this type of survey to be completed during the purchase of a property.
