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.

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.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A RICS Home Buyers Survey is a visual inspection of the grounds and the internal/external structure of the property and identifies defects such as cracks or damage to the structure of the property, subsidence, damp and infestations.

Some of these defects you may not even see or know what to look for which makes getting a Home Buyers Survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, if you're thinking of buying a property in Maidenhead, incredibly important.

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.

If the Home Buyers Survey shows up any such problems, our appointed surveyor will explain to you what you should do to get more in-depth information about the type and scope of the matter and what is required to fix it.

If you are worried about any defects that you think your property in Maidenhead has, we strongly recommend you get a Home Buyers Survey as the cost of remedying the problem might grow to many thousands of pounds as time progresses.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

Any number of people have been understandably confused between a mortgage valuation and a HomeBuyers Survey.

Your lender conducts its own valuation on the property in Maidenhead you intend to buy to check that it is lending you the right sum of money in relation to the property's value. It is not intended to examine any defects the property may have.

When you book a HomeBuyers Survey from us, as well as receiving an independent valuation of the property you wish to buy, the primary focus is to establish whether the property has any defects which you should know about, for example rising damp or subsidence, which might, particularly as time passes, end up requiring even tens of thousands of pounds to put right.

This knowledge is naturally of great use to you, given how much you are intending to spend. You might, on the strength of the information, provided, negotiate with the seller to contribute towards the costs of repairing the defects or even pull out buying the property entirely.


Most importantly, any HomeBuyers Survey is squarely for your benefit and is independent of both your lender - if you are buying with a mortgage - and your vendor. Call 01344 567 887 to get yours and to help your peace of mind.
