Top tips for a Buckhurst Hill Home Buyers Survey


Buckhurst Hill is a suburban town in Essex which developed when the railway arrived in 1856. Its Parish Church of St John was built in 1838 as was St John's National School.

Homes in the area are from all periods, including the Georgian, but most are from the mid-Victorian period and onwards. 

You can find large Victorian detached homes in Queens Road, Victorian semi-detached houses in Gladstone Road, Victorian cottages in Alfred Road, 1930s Art Deco style detached homes in The Drive and large modern detached properties in Chester Road.

There are new build homes in Station Way, some of which are sold as shared ownership.

Properties in Buckhurst Hill which are built near the River Roding 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).
A RICS surveyor doesn't test the electrics during a survey as they are not qualified to do so, however they will turn on and off the lights and confirm where the fuse box is in the property. Electrical issues can occur in properties that date older than 1970 as the electrical methods adopted in properties has evolved over time. This is why a surveyor will recommend that you consult a local electrical contractor if they feel it necessary.

In section E3 of the HomeBuyer Report, the surveyor reports on the Rain Water Pipes. This is completed through an inspection of accessible parts up to 3m and with the use of binoculars.

An example of this inspection from a survey in Chandos Close, Buckhurst Hill, Essex, IG9 5HS is "Rainwater fittings are of plastic sections. These are in reasonable condition to type and age however, it is shared with your neighbour and it would prudent to separate them to prevent possible maintenance dispute. It is not raining and we are unable to confirm these are water tight".

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 Buckhurst Hill.

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.
