Top tips for a Ascot Home Buyers Survey


Ascot's properties are highly mixed in style.

To the north, there are many Victorian terraced properties and 1930s construction semi-detached houses and to the south there are many highly desirable detached houses built in various periods, from the Georgian to the very recent and these often are situated in large plots of land. Particularly desirable roads include Bagshot Road and Coronation Road.

The racecourse always adds desirability to properties in the area because of its popularity generally and the large number of employees required to service its infrastructure and hinterland.

Properties in Ascot which are built in close proximity to some of the tributaries and feeders of the Virginia Water lake, including streets such as Victoria Road, St George's Lane and Francis Chichester Close, are in areas which are subject to flood 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).
Ascot, being in the Thames Valley area, has properties built on soil mainly dominated by London Clay, which can cause subsidence problems, but this is naturally offset by having around 7 metres of orange and pale yellow fine-grained sand in a layer above it.
Ambient noise levels in Ascot are generally low; higher levels affect the properties around the A332, particularly at the roundabout where the road crosses the high street, also affecting streets such as Burleigh Road and King's Ride.

Naturally noise levels increase during Royal Ascot Week!

BerkshireBerkshire is a county which touches a small part of the borders of West London. It is a home county (because it borders Greater London) and is often called Royal Berkshire because it contains Windsor and Windsor Castle. It hosts a number of iconic UK landmarks such as Ascot (Ascot Racecourse), Wentworth (Golf Course), Sunningdale (Golf Course), Virginia Water and Windsor Great Park and Eton School. Virginia Water was the first postcode area where the average property price exceeded one million.

Like many of the home counties, there are many essentially commuter dormitory settlements which house London workers. Reading (which is Berkshire's county town) in particular is a larger one and is popular because of its very fast rail links with Central London - there are many one-stop services to London Paddington and it is also due to be the western terminus of the Crossrail line.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

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

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.

If the Home Buyers Survey flags up any of these defects in your property in Ascot then our surveyor explains what you need to do to get further advice on how to investigate them and get It resolved. 

If you are concerned about your property has any other defects then you MUST get a RICS Home Buyers Survey as the costs for repairing the defects can run into thousands of pounds.

If you can identify the defect before you purchase then you can get quotes for fixing it and either share the costs with the seller, or, in worst case examples, choose not to proceed.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

When you buy a home with a mortgage your Mortgage Lender requires you to get a mortgage valuation to assess how much your property is actually worth.

You have to pay for this survey and often you may think this is also a structural assessment to identify defects.

Sadly the mortgage valuation is just for the mortgage lender which means you need to get your own independent survey of the property that's caught your eye in Ascot to make sure there aren't any defects.

There is some confusion as the mortgage valuation is often referred to as a survey and so many buyers assume this is what is meant by 'have you done your survey?' It is important that when buying a property in Ascot that you arrange your own HomeBuyers Survey that reports on defects or potential issues with the property.

The two types of HomeBuyers survey to choose from are the HomeBuyers Report or the Building Survey. Buying without a survey could leave you exposed to any repair costs or defects that you didn't spot.

The costs of underpinning a property due to subsidence run into the £10,000s so it is important to get a survey to check for this type of defect. Get your HomeBuyers Survey - call 01344 567 887.
