Top tips for a Benfleet Home Buyers Survey


Benfleet is a town in Essex's Castle Point district, north of Canvey Island and is the location of The Battle of Benfleet, between the Vikings and Saxons, in 894. The railway arrived in 1855 and was a spur to house building.

Properties are quite varied with, for example, Victorian terraces in the high street, 1930s semi-detached properties in London Road, 1970s semi-detached houses in The Rundels and terraces in St Clement's Close.

New build developments include the detached houses in Kiln Road, the semi-detached houses in Romsey Close and the apartments in Woodlands, Catherine Road.

Survey Tip 1

Survey Tip 2

Survey Tip 3

Properties in Benfleet which are built in close proximity to the East Haven Creek and water courses near it, in streets such Hall Farm Road and Fleet Road, are in areas where flood warnings and alerts are issued 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 sometimes have issues with ground stability in certain locations in Benfleet.

In a recent environmental search, taken out for a property in Grove Road, the report noted that there was a moderate potential for natural ground instability within 50m 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."

Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the South Benfleet area mainly centre around the main road – London Rd - A13, and of rail pollution where the railway line crosses Watlington Road.

EssexEssex 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.

What is included in a Building Survey?

The Royal institute of Chartered Surveyors provides guidance on what you can expect to have included in your survey report.

The main areas included in the inspection are assessments for signs of subsidence, testing for damp, a review of drains and a loft and roof space inspection.

Checks are also made to identify any signs of asbestos or infestation which may require further specialist checks.

Utilities are assessed and any recommendations made if any concerns about age and condition are identified.

Testing of equipment cannot be carried out as tests can only be carried out by qualified specialists such as plumbers or electricians based locally in Benfleet.

The surveyor provides recommendations in the legal section of the report which should be passed to the legal adviser carrying out the conveyancing to ensure any necessary enquiries are raised with the vendor’s solicitor.
