Top tips for a Clapton Home Buyers Survey


Clapton, which essentially consists of Upper Clapton and Lower Clapton, is a district in Hackney Borough in northeast London. It hosts the architecturally interesting Church of the Good Shepherd, particularly in terms of its outside statues, which was completed in 1895 and is of the Gothic revival style.

Most of the housing in Upper Clapton consists of per- and post-war blocks of flats, with very few period survivals; terrace housing used to dominate the area.

Lower Clapton has late Georgian period housing around Clpaton Pond and Clapton Square – there are excellent Georgian terraces here and it has many streets of Victorian terraces alongside low-rise housing estates such as the Clapton Park Estate.

New build developments include the flats and apartments in Median Road and contemporary apartment blocks such as Moore House in Millfield Road.

Properties in Clapton (whether Lower Clapton or Upper Clapton), built in close proximity to the River Lea, in streets such as Lea Bridge Road and Mandeville Street, are in an area 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).
According to the UK Government's Public Health England, some parts of Clapton, including streets such as Fletching Road and Chailey Street, are in a raised radon area, with properties built there having a higher probability than average of experiencing ground Radon emissions.

The raised Radon area has a maximum radon potential of 1-3% (the percentage is the chance of a property being built where Radon emissions might measure above the action level).

If you are concerned that a property you are buying is in an area of raised Radon, please click to visit Public Health England's UK Radon Map. Click also to find out more about Radon, Radon property searches and much more.
When a RICS surveyor is carrying out either a building survey or a homebuyer report they will only test the electricity to the extent of switching the lights on and off. If they suspect the electricity supply or fittings might have problems they will advise you consult an electrician.

A local electricion within the Clapton area is Harris Electrical Ltd, 62-64 Lower Clapton Rd, Lower Clapton, London E5 0RN.

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.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

It is a common misconception that a mortgage valuation is a HomeBuyers Survey and this can leave HomeBuyers 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 you are considering buying in Clapton 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 Clapton.
