Top tips for a Maidstone Home Buyers Survey


Maidstone has a rich variety of properties including from eras such as the medieval, Tudor and Jacobean. Thurnham Court in Thurnham was built in the early 17th century and Parsonage Farm in East Sutton is a 15th century farmhouse.

Maidstone's town has houses and bungalows from the Victorian, Edwardian, 1920s, 1930s, 1950s and modern era. Bower Mount Road has Edwardian semi-detached houses as do villages such as Bearstead, Yalding and Thurnham.

Frant Road has 2 and 3-bedroom Victorian houses and you can find barn conversions in East Malling, for example.

The Boatyard offers strikingly modern 3-bedroom houses and there are a number of modern 2, 3 and 4-bedroom homes in Hastings Road.

Properties in Maidstone which are situated close to the River Medway in streets such as College Avenue and Bridge Mill Way, are 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).
Properties in some areas of Maidstone may be affected by environmental constraints.

A recent environmental search carried out for a property in Roseholme and Sandling Lane revealed that the property was within 250m of an area likely to be impacted by environmental constraints. These included Local Nature Reserves - Fant and Anciebt Woodland - Sandling Wood.

Areas which have been designated as having environmental or historical importance may impose constraints on property or land developments or alterations.
Properties sometimes have issues with ground stability in certain locations in Maidstone.

In a recent environmental search, taken out for a property in Hughenden Reach, ME15 6ZL, the report noted that there was a moderate potential for natural ground instability within 250m of the property.

This should not be taken to mean that the property in question actually suffered/suffers from subsidence however as "active subsidence will be dependent on local conditions, such as the proximity of trees or areas where trees have been removed, which require an inspection of the site to identify the nature of the ground on which the property is built."

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.

What happens if your surveyor is does not inspect an area of the property?

There can be a number of reasons a surveyor might not inspect an area during their survey of a property.

Most commonly it is down to access (or lack thereof) to a certain part of the property (i.e. roof/garage) where a vendor may have forgotten to leave the key used to gain entry to the area in question. Additionally if your surveyor is physically unable to gain access to an area because, for example, there are objects in the way, they will equally be unable to inspect it in the normal way and report back on it.

Your surveyor may agree to return to a property to cover the areas that were missed in the original survey, assuming that steps have been taken to enable them to access the areas in question easily and once a date/time to return has been agreed with the vendor.
