Top tips for a Canary Wharf Home Buyers Survey


Canary Wharf is a commercial estate with a variety of different types of properties such as detached, and semi-detached houses built in the Victorian period as well as larger modern apartments which can be found in South Quay Square and the large modern commercial and residential high-rise blocks with which it is particularly associated.

You can find some Victorian town houses built in the 1830s along Manchester Road.

Apartments can be found in areas such as Biscayne Avenue and some properties along Astoria Way, Poplar where you can find new builds sold under the Help to Buy scheme.

Some parts of Canary Wharf might be affected by existing or proposed wind farms or wind turbines. A recent Environmental Search Report taken out for a property in Flat 1, Tequila Wharf, Commercial Road E14 7LG noted that it was built within 4km of existing or proposed wind farms or wind turbines. The location of wind farms can have an impact on the surrounding area due to the size of the turbines and the inconvenience of where the turbines are placed.

Properties sometimes have issues with ground stability in certain locations in Richmond.

In a recent Environmental Search, taken out for a property in Flat 1, Tequila Wharf, Commercial Road E14 7LG, revealed that there was a moderate potential for natural ground instability within 50m of the property. The level of ground stability in the surrounding area will be dependent on local conditions.

Depending on where in Canary Wharf you are thinking of buying, your solicitor may advise that you get an additional Flood Risk Report (click to find out more).

LondonGreater 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.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A RICS Home Buyers Survey identifies many different defects or potential risks that can be found within a property and is an essential part of any home buying process.

The survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is completed by a Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) registered surveyor so they are fully trained to provide you with the detail you need to buy your home.

NB If you're a first time buyer, you might wish to click on What is a House Survey to find out more, including what happens during the inspection.

If your Home Buyers Survey highlights concerns relating to any of these defects your surveyor explains what the issue is in detail and provides a recommendation as to what you should do to further investigate. An example of this is if your surveyor spots signs of damp within the property. Over 5,000 properties a week in the UK have damp proofing laid to combat the issue of rising damp and home buyers fear seeing mould, peeling wall paper and sodden floors as these are all tell-tale signs of rising damp.

If your property is showing these signs and your surveyor notes using their damp monitor that there is damp internally they'll advise you to get a damp specialist to attend the property, confirm the issue advising whether it is rising damp and quote for the costs in repairing with damp proofing.

If you're looking at buying a home in Canary Wharf which is showing signs of damp, or any other defects then you MUST get a Home Buyers Survey. The costs for repairing the defects can run into thousands of pounds; however, If you can identify the problem before you purchase then you can get quotes for fixing it and either share the costs with the seller, or, in worst case examples, choose not to proceed.

Does the Building Survey check the electrics and boiler?

The Building Survey is a defect report and will highlight any visual issues such as damp, subsidence and asbestos.

The surveyor will not carry out specialist inspections other than normal operation in everyday use, for example, switching lights on and off and turning the heating on and off.

If the surveyor feels that the electrics and boiler need further investigation then they will recommend that you get an electrician or engineer into the property to carry out an intrusive assessment.
