Top tips for a Witney Home Buyers Survey


The Witney railway station was opened in 1861 which resulted in an influx of population within the town. The full closure of the station occurred in 1965 but many of the houses, built due to the increase in population, are still available. Three story Victorian terrace properties can be found on Corn Street and Grade 2 listed Georgian townhouses can be found on West End.

Burford Road is home to the new development Kingfisher Meadows that offers contemporary living just 13 miles outside of Oxford.

Witney is situated on the River Windrush and so some properties within the town may be subject to flood alerts from time to time. Streets affected by this include Wainerush View, Moorland Road and Witan Way. Properties near the Madley Brook may get flood warnings such as houses on Church Lane and Northfield Farm Lane.

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).
Roads causing noise pollution in Witney include Ducklington Lane, the A40 and the A4095 and streets such as Burwell Drive, Thorney Leys and Woodgreen are likely to be affected by this.
According to the UK Government's Public Health England, most of Witney, including streets such as Curbridge Road and Bedford Tower Hill, 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 3-5% (the percentage is the chance of a property being built where Radon emissions might measure above the action level) in majority of the town, with the north being a potential of 5-10% and the south a potential of 1-3%.

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.

OxfordshireOxfordshire is a county located in the south east of England and can be known by the abbreviated name of Oxon. It's the most rural county in the South East. Although it's reputed to be the furthest location from the sea, it has numerous canals and rivers for boating. King Alfred burnt the cakes in Wantage. Blenheim Palace, built between 1705 and 1722, a Baroque masterpiece, was the birthplace of Winston Churchill and has a landscape garden fashioned by 'Capability' Brown.

Undoubtedly the county is most well-known for the collegiate university town of Oxford itself, with its dreaming spires dating back to the 13th century but there are so many other attractions such as the Cotswolds (from where the River Thames springs from) and even the family-friendly Didcot Railway Centre. The county borders Warwickshire to the north/north-west, Northamptonshire to the north/north-east, Buckinghamshire to the east, Berkshire to the south, Wiltshire to the south-west and Gloucestershire to the west.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A RICS Home Buyers Survey identifies many different defects or potential risks that can be found within a property and is an essential part of any home buying process.

The survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is completed by a Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) registered surveyor so they are fully trained to provide you with the detail you need to buy your home.

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 your Home Buyers Survey highlights concerns relating to any of these defects your surveyor explains what the issue is in detail and provides a recommendation as to what you should do to further investigate. An example of this is if your surveyor spots signs of damp within the property.

Over 5,000 properties a week in the UK have damp proofing laid to combat the issue of rising damp
and home buyers fear seeing mould, peeling wall paper and sodden floors as these are all tell-tale signs of rising damp.

If your property is showing these signs and your surveyor notes using their damp monitor that there is damp internally they'll advise you to get a damp specialist to attend the property, confirm the issue advising whether it is rising damp and quote for the costs in repairing with damp proofing.

If you're looking at buying a home in Witney which is showing signs of damp, or any other defects then you MUST get a Home Buyers Survey.

The costs for repairing the defects can run into thousands of pounds; however, If you can identify the problem 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.

Does a RICS surveyor perform asbestos testing?

The Survey is a visual assessment to help identify any potential issues.

The surveyor will inspect the property and if they have any suspicions of subsidence they will recommend that you get an asbestos specialist into the property.

The asbestos specialist will review of all accessible areas of the property to assess for asbestos and provide details of areas asbestos is potentially affecting along with taking samples and confirming if the material is asbestos.

We have asbestos surveyors covering Witney and they are all qualified to British Occupational Hygiene Society P402 and some to S301 Standards.

All samples are analysed in a UKAS accredited laboratory.

At the end of the process you will know what level of asbestos is present and what it will cost for you or the vendor to remove it.
