Top tips for a Sandhurst Home Buyers Survey


Sandhurst is a town in Berkshire principally known as the location of the Royal Military Academy. It developed when the Royal Military College was built there in 1812 and subsequently when the railway arrived in 1849. In the period after the railway arrived, a number of large Victorian country residences were built up to around the 1870s, of which a few remain today.

Many workers' houses were built as people moved to the area to find employment and a number of churches and schools were built, such as St Michael's Parish Church (Little Sandhurst), rebuilt in 1853, and Old Scotland Hill School, built in 1871.

Much building occurred in the 20th century between the 1950s and 1980s with large housing estates fabricated around College Town, Central Sandhurst, Little Sandhurst and Owlsmoor. Much of the stock Is semi-detached and detached properties.

There are large, newly-built detached properties around School Hill in Little Sandhurst and more detached and semi-detached homes being built around Branksome Hill Road.

Properties in Sandhurst which have been built close to the Blackwater River, in roads such as Yateley Road and Belfry Mews, 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).
A recent Environmental Search for a property in Hepworth Croft, Sandhurst, GU47 0GH, stated that the dwelling was within 50m of an area with potential for natural ground instability.

The British Geological Survey has assessed the area of search as having moderate potential for natural ground instability. This does not necessarily mean there is cause for concern in terms of the property's stability. Active subsidence will be dependent on local conditions, such as the proximity of trees or areas where trees have been removed, which require an inspection of the site to identify the nature of the ground on which the property is built. A house buyers survey is advised to look for signs of property damage that may indicate poor natural ground conditions.
Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the Sandhurst area mainly centre around the main road – A321, Yorktown Road, impacting roads such as The Broadway and Coachmans Grove.

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.

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 Sandhurst 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 Sandhurst 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 01252 560 064.
