Top tips for a Bearsted Home Buyers Survey


The railway station brought about an increase in population in 1884. This means there are many properties from the Victorian and Edwardian era. Large Victorian, detached properties can be found on Mill Street and Bower Mount Road, whilst semi - detached Edwardian properties are situated on Bower Mount Road and Manor Rise.

Bearsted itself does not have any new developments, but Barming Rise is one within Maidstone with three and four bedroom houses designed for contemporary living. Langley Park is also of similar style.

The River Lenn and The Lilk run through Bearsted so some residential roads may be subject to flood alerts from time to time, such as Discovery Road, Cross Keys and Bournewood Close.

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).
Being near the M20 means thaat Bearsted is subject to raised levels of noise pollution. The Street, Thurnham Lane and other roads to the north of the town are affected. A railways line also runs along the M20 that contributed to the noise pollution.
According to a recent environmental search for a property on Hughenden Reach in Maidstone claimed the porperty was within 50m of potential ground instability. Subsidence depends on local conditions so could be an issue for Bearsted.


KentKent, romantically described as 'the garden of England', is a coastal county in the England's south eastern corner. Because it borders Greater London, it is classed as one of the home counties. It contains the Weald and the North Downs. Kent's county town is Maidstone. Other large cities include Gillingham, Chatham, Ashford, Royal Tunbridge Wells, Margate, Dartford and Gravesend. 

Kent has many port towns including Dover, Folkestone and Margate. Adjacent counties include East Sussex, Surrey, Essex (across the River Thames) and, as stated earlier, Greater London. Curiously, Kent used to contain an enclave north of the River Thames until 1965 which equates now to the E16 postcode area and which has now been reclassified as part of the London Borough of Newham. JMW Turner, the great impressionist painter, spent part of his childhood in Margate and regularly returned there in later life. The coastline of East Kent is regarded as the inspiration for many of his works, particularly his fantastic seascapes.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

Our RICS Surveyor, during a Home Buyers Survey, inspects both the inside and the outside of your property and searches in particular for subsidence, damp, infestations and any cracks or other damage to the property.

The procedure is non-intrusive. It is highly recommended that you get one, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, if you are thinking of buying a property in Bearsted.

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.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

Many mistakenly think that a mortgage valuation is the same as a HomeBuyers Survey and the consequence is that home buyers can subsequently have to shell out money for repairing faults and defects that could well have been part of the bargaining process with the seller on purchase. The surveyor appointed by the lender conducts a mortgage valuation to estimate the value of the property: this survey is not concerned with detailing structural defects.

A HomeBuyers Survey lists and reports on defects and includes a full appraisal and valuation of the property you are thinking of buying in Bearsted which is completely independent of the mortgage lender. This knowledge can be used to get quotes for the cost of fixing defects and, most importantly, gives you evidence which can be used to bargain with the seller about sharing any such cost.
