Top tips for a Slough Home Buyers Survey


Slough has seen extensive redevelopment in the last century or so and this can be seen in its housing. The closer to the centre you go, the more likely that an area has been redeveloped, however there are survivals from many housing eras.

This is even the case with some of its previously industrial areas, many of which have been redeveloped into modern housing. 

However the outlying parts of Slough and moving towards locations close by such as Datchet, you frequently see Victorian detached (such as can be seen in Eton Road) and semi-detached properties. Alpha Street and Ledgers Road have classic Victorian terraces.

There are many new build developments, such as in Windsor Road, Langley Road and Castleview Road, some of which are made up of very large dwellings. Shared ownership is also quite common; this is offered in places like, for example, Northampton Place, Pursers Court and Skye Lodge.

Properties built in close proximity to the water courses around the Upton Court Park area of Slough and Ditton Park are sometimes subject to flood alerts and warnings, such as in Creak Cottage and Ditton Park Road.

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 RICS surveyor conducting a RICS Home Buyers Survey on a property in Slough will also visually examine central heating elements and make recommendations where these are relevant.
A recent RICS building survey carried out on a property in St Johns Road noted the following:

"There is a build-up of scale on the stop valves each side of the pump in the roof. This normally occurs due to minor leakage from the unions. I recommend that a plumber is engaged to drain down the system, remove the valves and fit new valves of a better quality. The system will then need to be refilled."

If you need a central heating engineer in Slough, you should use a recommended, experienced company such as Tru-Heat, 72 Barnfield, Slough SL1 5JW.
Properties in some areas of Slough may be affected by being built on or close to contaminated land or land which may be contaminated.

A recent environmental search carried out for a property in Millbrook Way revealed that the property was built within 25m of land which may be contaminated. The risk factors listed included 'other potential contaminative land uses', which detailed a factory and mineral products non-metallic (including abrasives and asbestos).

Suspected contaminated land may have many implications for a property built on or it and, if this is flagged up, the report sets down the next steps you should take.

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 Home Buyers Survey is completed by a qualified RICS surveyor and delivers a visual inspection of the property in Slough 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.

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 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 in Slough has subsidence, or any other defects then you MUST get a 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.

What happens if the conveyancing falls through before the survey takes place will I get a full refund?

If you need to cancel the survey for any reason at all you need to ensure that you have given the surveyor 48 hours’ notice before the survey takes place.

If the surveyor has 48 or more hours’ notice then you will be provided with a full refund.

If however you only give the surveyor 24 hours’ notice then there will be a penalty of £50 due to the fact that the surveyor will not be able to fill that slot in time.

If you cancel on the same day as the Survey Date, or any time after the surveyor has attended the property then no refund is due however the report will be delivered in accordance with the terms agreed with the surveyor.
