Top tips for a Datchet Home Buyers Survey


Datchet is an affluent village in Berkshire which, although the railway arrived in the 1850s, did not greatly increase its population.

There are a fair selection of detached properties there from many periods, from Georgian to very modern developments, and a fair number of semi-detached houses built from the 1920s onwards.

Much of the older properties are in and around the High Street, whereas there were no properties in The Avenue and Slough Road until the 1880s (Windsor Road dates from the 1850s).

There are some new developments in the area, particularly around Windsor Road, such as The Acelan, The Thalys and The Sapsan, all of which are purpose-built flat blocks and some flats are sold under shared ownership.

Most of Datchet's area is in the flood plain of the River Thames and the village has the Queen Mother Reservoir to its west. Dwellings in its locale 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).
According to the UK Government's Public Health England, some parts of Datchet, including streets such as Manor House Lane and Datchet Place is 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 1 – 3% (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 Datchet are highest around the route of the M4, affecting nearby streets such as Major's Farm Road and Riding Court Road.

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?

A RICS Home Buyers Survey non-intrusively inspects both the external and internal structure of a property for matters which include; damp, subsidence, infestations, cracks and damage.

The goal of the Home Buyers Survey, whether the Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or the HomeBuyers Report, is to provide reassurance when buying a home and this is the case if you are considering buying a property in Datchet.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

Many mistakenly think that a mortgage valuation is the same as a HomeBuyers Survey and the consequence is that home buyers can subsequently have to shell out money for repairing faults and defects that could well have been part of the bargaining process with the seller on purchase.

The surveyor appointed by the lender conducts a mortgage valuation to estimate the value of the property you are looking to buy in Datchet: this survey is not concerned with detailing structural defects.

A HomeBuyers Survey lists and reports on defects and includes a full appraisal and valuation of the property which is completely independent of the mortgage lender.

This knowledge can be used to get quotes for the cost of fixing defects and, most importantly, gives you evidence which can be used to bargain with the seller about sharing any such cost. Need a HomeBuyers Survey? Call us on 01344 567 887.

Homebuyers surveys are not the same as Mortgage Valuations, see an example from SAM Conveyancing
