Top tips for a Barkingside Home Buyers Survey


Barkingside is a district of Ilford in northeast London. Some of the oldest buildings in Barkingside include the Barnardo's chapel, the underground station, opened in 1903, which was originally an Edwardian railway station, and Holy Trinity Church, which dates from 1840.

The construction of the Eastern Avenue in 1925 encouraged southward expansion towards Gants Hill and the absorption of Mossford Green and Fullwell, where new facilities were added after the Second World War. Green-belt legis¬lation prevented post-war expansion east of the railway, which became part of the Central line in 1948.

Houses are predominantly interwar detached, semi-detached and terrace houses. New build developments include the Garden Village development, which consists of apartments and family houses.

Survey Tip 1

Survey Tip 3

Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the Barkingside area mainly centre on Cranbrook Road/High Street and the streets immediately adjoining.
A recent Environmental Search has shown that a property in Barnardos Garden Village, Barkingside, Redbridge IG6 1QG, was within 50m of an area with potential for natural ground instability.

The British Geological Survey has assessed the area of search as having moderate potential for natural ground instability. This does not necessarily mean there is cause for concern in terms of the property's stability. 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. A house buyers survey is advised to look for signs of property damage that may indicate poor natural ground conditions.
Properties in some areas of Barkingside may be affected by surface water flooding.

A recent environmental search carried out for a property in in Tanners Lane, IG6 1QG revealed that there was a potential risk of surface water flooding within 250m of the dwelling.

Surface water flooding results from rainfall running over ground before entering a watercourse or river. If you are buying a property with a mortgage, when your main property searches are returned, they may advise that you get an additional Flood Risk Report (click to find out more).

London.pngGreater London is an area which contains London, the capital of the United Kingdom (which itself centres on the Cities of London and Westminster) and a number of surrounding boroughs which are administered as London boroughs and which are the overall executive responsibility of the Mayor of London. It contains a large number of constituencies, each represented by an MP and it should be noted that these are not the same as nor even always continguous with the borders of the boroughs.

Many parts of Greater London were originally administered by the counties which surround London and these counties are often called the home counties. Enfield, for example, used to be classed as being part of Middlesex, but is now near the northern border of Greater London. Greater London's borders often coincide with a zone of 'green belt': areas where it has been decided that open spaces, parks, forests and wildlife reserves should act as a buffer against urban sprawl. London has numerous landmarks, anything from Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament to Karl Marx's grave in Highgate Cemetery.

Greater London contains more than 9 million inhabitants, a number growing daily, and as this is approximately 1/7 of the population of the UK, it can be seen that Greater Londoners have a large influence on the rest of the country politically and this is enhanced by the concentration of skilled workers gravitating towards the capital.

Our RICS Surveyor, during a Home Buyers Survey in Barkingside, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, inspects both the inside and the outside of your property and searches in particular for subsidence, damp, infestations and any cracks or other damage to the property. The procedure 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 home buyers 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 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 0207 112 5388 to get the best HomeBuyers survey for your property in Barkingside.
