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.

Survey Tip 1

Survey Tip 2

Survey Tip 3

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.

Berkshire.pngBerkshire 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.

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.

Should any issues be flagged up in the Home Buyers Survey, our surveyor will tell you what you need to do to get more in-depth advice on the extent and seriousness of the issue and what needs to be done to remedy it. 

If you are worried about a crack or cracks or indeed any other defects that you think your property in Earley has, we strongly recommend you get a Home Buyers Survey as the cost of remedying the problem might snowball into many thousands of pounds further down the line. As an example of the costs, underpinning a property due to subsidence can be upwards of £10,000.

How long do I have to wait for my survey?

When you instruct Sam Conveyancing to complete a survey on a property you will receive an email from us stating all the information that you need to know about your survey.

Once our surveyor has completed the survey at the property they will call you when they are back in their office between 4pm-6pm on the same the day to inform you if they found any defects at the property.

The surveyor will then type up the report and email it directly to you 5 working days later. However, If following the survey the surveyor feels the report is going to take longer to produce than the normal time frame, due to the amount of detail required, then they’ll advise you of when the survey report will be made available to you.
