Sunbury has many water courses and features in and around it such as the River Thames, Felthamhill Brook, Portlane Brook and many lakes. Properties built in close promixity to these, such as in Green Way and Halliford Road, have been 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).
Some properties in Sunbury-on-Thames are located nearby to existing or proposed sites for solar farms.

A recent environmental search carried out for a property in Staines Road East, for example, flagged up that the property was built within 2km of existing or proposed solar farms.

The location of wind farms or turbines can be contentious due to visual impact.
Some properties in Sunbury-on-Thames may be located in an area which is subject to a Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL).

A recent local authority search for a property in Sunna Gardens revealed that it was within a CIL area.

The Community Infrastructure Levy is a planning charge, introduced by the Planning Act 2008 as a tool for local authorities in England and Wales to help deliver infrastructure to support the development of their area. It came into force on 6 April 2010 through the Community Infrastructure Levy Regulations 2010. Development may be liable for a charge under the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL), if your local planning authority has chosen to set a charge in its area.

LondonGreater London is an area which contains London, the capital of the United Kingdom (which itself centres on the Cities of London and Westminster) and a number of surrounding boroughs which are administered as London boroughs and which are the overall executive responsibility of the Mayor of London. It contains a large number of constituencies, each represented by an MP and it should be noted that these are not the same as nor even always continguous with the borders of the boroughs.

Many parts of Greater London were originally administered by the counties which surround London and these counties are often called the home counties. Enfield, for example, used to be classed as being part of Middlesex, but is now near the northern border of Greater London. Greater London's borders often coincide with a zone of 'green belt': areas where it has been decided that open spaces, parks, forests and wildlife reserves should act as a buffer against urban sprawl. London has numerous landmarks, anything from Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament to Karl Marx's grave in Highgate Cemetery.

Greater London contains more than 9 million inhabitants, a number growing daily, and as this is approximately 1/7 of the population of the UK, it can be seen that Greater Londoners have a large influence on the rest of the country politically and this is enhanced by the concentration of skilled workers gravitating towards the capital.

When should I book my survey?

Ideally, you will want to arrange a survey as early as possible in the purchase transaction.

The reason for this is to ensure that any problems that may be identified can be looked into by your solicitor within a good time frame.

The survey report may reveal matters which require further investigation by your solicitor and this can take time if a further investigation is needed by a specialist.

You want to make sure that you receive the results of the survey before proceeding to exchange of contracts as at this point in the process you become legally bound to the purchase and will not be able to re-negotiate the price or withdraw from the sale.
