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.

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?

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 Earley, incredibly important.

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.

I’m buying a new build property, what survey do I need?

If you are purchasing a new build property in Earley you will need to have a snagging survey carried out by a RICS surveyor.

This is an independent inspection looking specifically for faults in new build properties such as sealant in showers, cracked tiles and many other areas.

A snagging survey is designed to find out if there are any immediate problems with your new-build home.

The surveyor will provide a report to the buyer with a listing of the areas within the new property whereby sub-standard workmanship exists and good practice has not been used and poor finishing’s are evident.

The snagging report can be provided to the developer and you can negotiate to get the works completed prior or after you complete your purchase - who is going to repair the snags should however be agreed prior to completion.
