Environmental Issues in Reading

Property buyers, lenders and insurers are all increasingly basing decisions on the risks associated with environmental factors. Environmental factors which may affect a property include

  • records of subsidence or flooding,
  • historical use of the land,
  • any previous contamination,
  • nearby landfill sites or waste treatment, or,
  • the likelihood of radon gas exposure

The clean up of environmental problems is usually the responsibility of whoever caused the contamination . A remediation notice may be issued which will force the liable party to clean up the contamination, if they do not agree to do so voluntarily. Unfortunately, if they cannot be found, then the owner of the land could be required to pay for the work, even if they are entirely innocent. A full copy of the detailed technical report used to generate the search results may also be available to you.

Will your home be a conservation area?

Reading has a number of conservation areas, and it is essential for Conveyancing Solicitors to advise anyone buying a house in such an area of the planning implications. Your Conveyancing Solicitor will also help protect you by ensuring that the seller has obtained proper consents for any existing alterations and improvements.

Conservation areas in the Reading area include: Alexandra Road, Christchurch, Downshire Square, Eldon Square, Horncastle, Kendrick Road, Redlands, Routh Lane Tilehurst, Russell St/Castle Hill, South Park, St. Mary's Butts/Castle Street, St. Peters, and Surley Row.

Flooding in parts of Reading

Reading purchasers understandably expect to pay less for a property which is more likely to flood. This risk is assessed by the Environment Agency. Sources of flooding include the obvious, river and coastal flooding, but also unexpected issues such as sewer or reservoir flooding. The recent expiration of a deal between insurers and the Government to provide cover for flood-risk houses has caused controversy, so asking your conveyancing solicitor to perform a thorough search at your request is the safest course. Recent Flood Risk Updates in Reading:

  • River Thames at Mapledurham, Reading and Caversham - No warnings
  • River Kennet from Thatcham down to Reading including Burghfield, Colthrop, Woolhampton, Aldermaston, Theale, Calcot and Southcote - No warnings
  • River Kennet from Theale down to Reading including Burghfield, Calcot, Southcote and The Oracle - No warnings
