Top tips for a Oxford Home Buyers Survey


Oxford has a great mix of properties, from luxurious Victorian homes to modern builds.

For example, North Oxford's streets around Banbury Road has many large red-brick detached Victorian properties. Boars Hill has large detached houses, many with large parcels of land. Jericho has Victorian terrace cottages.

The centre has dwellings from many periods, going back to the 13th century. Grandpoint has Victorian houses to the west of the Abingdon Road. There are many modern developments also, such as Close at Cumnor Ridge, which offers 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes. Barton is set to receive 850 new homes, with 40% set to be affordable, with shared ownership also being offered.

The River Thames divides around Oxford and homes in the vicinity of the River Thames or Isis to Oxford's west, including for example New Botley and North Hinksey Village, and in the vicinity of the River Cherwell to Oxford's east, including parts of New Marston and Sunnymead, are subject to flood warnings, as are for example New Hinksey, including in its locale streets such as Norreys Avenue and Sunningwell Road, which is just to the south of where the Isis and Cherwell join up.

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).
As general advice, a damp proof course is a membrane of impervious material located in the walls just above ground level to prevent water rising through capillary action commonly known as rising damp. The recommended minimum clear distance between the damp proof course and the ground is 150mm.
To ventilate the sub-floor space of the original part of the ground floor, cast iron airbricks are provided at intervals at the base of the walls. A surveyor will inspect to see if these are adequate to ensure through-ventilation of the void and it is important that they are not blocked or obscured by dirt, leaves or paving.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A Home Buyers Survey is completed by a qualified RICS surveyor and delivers a visual inspection of the property in Oxford and the surrounding garden. The aim of the survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is to identify potential risks or defects that you may not know are there such as cracks or damage to the structure of the property, subsidence, damp and infestations.

Level 2 HomeBuyer Report with a Valuation

A HomeBuyer Report, also known as a Home Buyers Survey, is generally suitable for:

  • Bungalows
  • Flats
  • Standard construction houses

The majority of Oxford's leasehold flats require only a RICS HomeBuyer Report but for any Victorian conversions, a Building Survey may well be required.
