Top tips for a Chigwell Home Buyers Survey


Chigwell is a small town in the Epping Forest area of Essex.

It has Georgian houses in the old village in the vicinity of St Mary's Church as well as weatherboard cottages and Ye Olde King's Head inn and towards Grange Hill and Hainault, there are semi-detached houses from the 1930s. There is a 1960s development called The Bowls which offers spacious flats on Manor Road.

Mostly Chigwell has large, detached family houses which date at most back to 1903 when the Central Line arrived and many of the older properties have been knocked down and replaced by newer and even larger mansions in roads such as Forest Lane, Hainault Road and Stradbroke Drive.

Areas around the River Roding in Chigwell are subject to flood alerts and warnings 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 Chigwell.

In a recent environmental search, taken out for a property in Dacre Gardens, Chigwell, IG7 5HG, 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."

Your RICS surveyor inspects drains during a survey of a property in Chigwell, where the drain cover is accessible and on the site of the property.

If the drains are reported to be blocked you may need to employ a drainage company to inspect the drains with CCTV such as Loughton Drains, 3 Rochford Avenue, Loughton, IG10 2BS.

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.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A Home Buyers Survey involves an examination of the structure of the inside and the outside of a property aimed at pinpointing issues such as subsidence, damp, cracks, infestation and damage. The survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is non-intrusive.

What should you do when the surveyor finds a defect that affects the property price?

This is a very difficult situation to be in. You have agreed a price with the seller not knowing of this issue and now have the issue of needing to revisit your offer.

The best advice is to inform the seller/estate agent of the issue you have uncovered, provide the specific information from the report from your Building Surveyor (not the full report) and then discuss a solution that accounts for the repair works.
