Top tips for a Earley Home Buyers Survey


Earley has a great mix of housing, from the Victorian period onwards, and a large number of listed buildings, such as the North and South Lodges in Whiteknights Road (both early 19th century).

The town grew rapidly before and after the second world war, becoming a town in 1974, hence the predomination of 1930s-1950s standard construction housing.

Lower Earley developed as a private estate from 1977 onwards (it continued into the 1980s and 1990s) and has many properties, from studio flats to modern mansions. .

There are new build developments such as Croft Gardens in Hyde End Road and Castle Walk in Wensley Road, where you can also find shared ownership flats.

Earley consists of slowly permeable, seasonally wet, slightly acid but base-rich loamy and clayey soils. Soils have impeded drainage - the effect is more severe and winter waterlogging results in very wet ground conditions.
Earley and Lower Earley have a number of new build developments completed and under construction. When buying a new build property make sure to get a snagging report to ensure the build quality of the finished property is up to standard. Read more about - What is a Snagging Report?
Property valuation surveys are required for Help to Buy Equity release settlements.

In a property valuation on Wyatt Cresent, Lower Earley, Reading, RG6 3WH, our surveyor explains the condition and construction of the proeprty and then provided comparable properties to support an assessment of the current market value.

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.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

Confusion can arise regarding mortgage valuations and HomeBuyers Surveys. The unfortunate result is that property buyers can sometimes find themselves having to spend a great deal of money repairing faults and defects which might well have - and ideally would have - formed part of the bargaining process with the vendor when negotiations were taking place.

Lenders appoint surveyors to carry out valuations to estimate market values of properties but the survey has no concern with investigating structural defects.

A HomeBuyers Survey notes and reports on defects and has a full appraisal and valuation of a property, which, most importantly, is completely independent of the mortgage lender. You can use this information to get quotes for how much it would cost to fix any defects detected in your property in Earley. More importantly, the survey can provide evidence which you can use to bargain with the seller about sharing repair costs. Book your HomeBuyers Survey for your property in Earley by calling 0118 324 0432 and get yourself some well-earned peace of mind.
