Top tips for a Maidenhead Home Buyers Survey


Maidenhead is a riverside town which expanded rapidly when the railway arrived in 1839. Crossrail is likely to bring with it further housing development.

Maidenhead has fantastic properties along the immediate riverside from many periods and in other places there are Victorian and Edwardian properties as well as more modern housing and new build flat developments. The villages in the hinterland have mainly period houses and cottages.

The Chiltern Estate has detached family homes built in the 1950s and 1960s. New developments coming on line or just completed include The Landing, Chapel Arches (both in the town centre), Brunel Gardens (which includes affordable properties) and Parklands on Cookham Road (which replaces a former council estate). 

Some properties have been offered under shared ownership terms.

Properties in Maidenhead built in close proximity to the path of the River Thames, such as those in Bay Mead Road, have been subject to flood warnings and alerts from time to time.

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).
According to the UK Government's Public Health England, most of Maidenhead, including streets such as Cordwallis Road and Bailey Close, is in a raised radon area, with properties built there having a higher probability than average of experiencing ground Radon emissions.

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.
Slate roof properties in Maidenhead need maintenance from time to time.


A recent building survey conducted on a property in Grenfell Road revealed that although the majority of the slating was in satisfactory condition, with slates laid to straight regular courses, many of the slates were held in place with lead clips, called tingles, indicating that the iron nails which were used for the purpose when the house was built had rusted away.


Slates will continue to slip and therefore maintenance is required from time to time to keep the roof slopes in a sound condition until such time as they are stripped and recovered.

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 involves an examination of the structure of the inside and the outside of a property aimed at pinpointing issues such as subsidence, damp, cracks, infestation and damage.

The survey is non-intrusive. If you are thinking of buying a property in Maidenhead, it is highly advisable to book one, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report,.

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.

Why does the surveyor need to be local

It is important to get a surveyor to attend the property who is local to your area.

A local surveyor will have extensive local knowledge of the area and will know if there are any issues that occur on properties locally. A local surveyor will also be aware of the market conditions in the area and it is more than likely that they have surveyed properties of a similar condition before.

It is also more efficient to work with a surveyor who is local to Maidenhead or who is used to completing surveys in Berkshire as driving for several hours to complete a survey can delay the report turnaround.
