Top tips for a Wraysbury Home Buyers Survey


Wraysbury, an affluent village in Berkshire, hosts the ruins of a Benedictine nunnery from Henry II's reign and a yew tree (the Ankerwycke Yew) aged around 2,000 years old.

Despite the arrival of the railway in 1848, the population throughout the 19th century did not increase to any great extent, and stayed below 700 (just over 600 at the start of the century).

The western part of the village is subject to flooding, as has occurred in January 2003, January 2014 and February 2014.

Hythe End has a number of large, detached properties on the riverside; these are late Victorian, Edwardian or redevelopments as well as modern properties. Sunnymeads has equally large properties from the Victorian period (including large cottages) to the modern era as does Friary Island.

Most properties in Wraysbury are subject to flood warnings and alerts from time to time, particularly around the Ouseley Road/Wharf Road/Friary Road area - it is very much in the River Thames' flood plain and there are many lakes and reservoirs in the locale.

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 Wraysbury are built in designated smoke control areas.

A recent local authority search done for a dwelling in Osborne Avenue noted that the property was in such a smoke control area.

Under the terms of Section 20 of the Clean Air Act 1993, smoke emissions from all buildings are prohibited unless an exemption has been made by the Secretary of State under Section 21 of the Act.
Properties in some areas of Wraysbury may be affected by overhead power lines or mobile phone masts.

A recent environmental search carried out for a property in Hadrian Way revealed that there were overhead power lines or mobile phone masts located within 250m of the dwelling.

Overhead power lines and phone masts can be contentious and additionally may have a visual impact on the surrounding area.

LondonMiddlesex is a county located in south east of England, however many parts of Middlesex are now commonly known as part of Greater London, with small sections in neighbouring counties.

Strictly speaking Middlesex as a concept is only kept in existence by many people continuing to name it as a county on postal addresses and other contributors such as Middlesex County Cricket Club, whose home ground is at Lord's in St John's Wood, just outside Central London. It is still loved despite it not having any form of administrative function etc.

People hearing about Middlesex assume it was/is a large county because of the amount of Greater London territory (West and North London and Westminster, with the Thames as its southern boundary) which lies within its borders. It is actually the second smallest county in the UK. Middlesex was established in the Anglo-Saxon system from the territory of the Middle Saxons. The largely low-lying county's soil is dominated by clay in its north and alluvium on gravel in its south.

Middlesex contains locations as diverse as Teddington (where the tidal Thames normally finishes), Enfield, Notting Hill, Ickenham, Ealing (where the famous film studios which produced so much early film comedy still exists), Hampstead and Southall.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

    Our RICS Surveyor, during a Home Buyers Survey in Wraysbury, 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.

What happens if your surveyor is does not inspect an area of the property?

There can be a number of reasons a surveyor might not inspect an area during their survey of a property.

Most commonly it is down to access (or lack thereof) to a certain part of the property (i.e. roof/garage) where a vendor may have forgotten to leave the key used to gain entry to the area in question.

Additionally if your surveyor is physically unable to gain access to an area because, for example, there are objects in the way, they will equally be unable to inspect it in the normal way and report back on it.

Your surveyor may agree to return to a property to cover the areas that were missed in the original survey, assuming that steps have been taken to enable them to access the areas in question easily and once a date/time to return has been agreed with the vendor.
