Top tips for a Maldon Home Buyers Survey


Maldon had a railway station during the period of 1889-1966. During this period many houses were built due to the increase in popularity of the town, now that it had rail links. Edwardian properties are still available on streets such as Chandlers Way, Mill Road and London Road. These are in varying styles of detached, semi-detached and terrace. Most of the Edwardian properties still have the beautiful Edwardian exterior but the interiors have been updated.

Limebrook is a new development in Maldon, offering modern two to five bedroom houses and two bedroom apartments,

Some areas of Maldon may be subject to flood alerts due to being in close proximity to the River Chelmer. These include houses on streets such as Holloway Road, Battlerise and Lawling Avenue.

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).
Streets such as Spital Road, St Giles Crescent and Harvest Way suffer from raised levels of noise pollution. The source of this noise pollution is the A414 situated to the west of the town.
Chalk mining has historically caused subsidence in Maldon on streets such as Beeleigh Road and Gate Street Mews.


Essex.pngEssex is not only a coastal county (the North Sea is to its east) but a home county because it touches Greater London on its eastern borders. Its settlements vary from Colchester, which is very historical and used to be the capital of England as Camulodunum, to Southend, a seaside resort, to Basildon, which is a comparatively modern urban development. The western side of Essex hosts many London workers and there are fast rail links to, for example, Shenfield from London Liverpool Street which aid many city workers.

Essex's county town is Chelmsford (and is the county's only city), where Essex County Cricket Club are based. Essex hosts Stansted Airport and attractions such as the Lakeside Shopping Centre, near Thurrock and Epping Forest, a popular forest for camping and other activities. A large proportion of Essex's boundaries are water (the River Thames and the North Sea), the remainder includes Greater London, Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Suffolk. Kent is across the River Thames to the south.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A 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, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is non-intrusive.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

It is a common misconception that a mortgage valuation is a HomeBuyers Survey and this can leave HomeBuyers exposed to high repair costs that could have been negotiated with the seller. A mortgage valuation is conducted by the lender’s surveyor to assess the value of the property you are interested in buying in Maldon and they do not provide a detailed report on structural defects.

A HomeBuyers Survey details defects and includes a full appraisal of the property independently to anyone else including the mortgage lender. You can use the information to obtain quotes to fix any defects and gives you the evidence to potentially share the costs with the seller.

Most savvy buyers make sure they get a HomeBuyers survey from an independent surveyor to make sure the property they are buying is free from defects. Call us on 0333 344 3234 to get the best HomeBuyers survey for your property in Maldon.
