Top tips for a Dagenham Home Buyers Survey


Dagenham is a large suburb in East London which was first extensively developed in 1921 when London's County Council built the gargantuan Becontree estate, which dominates the area. There is some older period housing around the Old Dagenham Village area.

The parish church of St Peter and St Paul, however, was originally built in the 13th century although it was largely rebuilt at the beginning of the 19th century. Valence House in Becontree Avenue3 is the only surviving of five manor houses in the locale and dates back to the 13th century.

The aforementioned estate consists of around 26,000 houses and is where more than 100,000 people live. Since Right to Buy, its uniformity has decreased somewhat in terms of external appearances (although there were actually 91 different styles of house originally). Houses are predominantly 3-bedroom semi-detached and terrace dwellings, even if there are many loft conversions etc. these days.

Dwellings built south of the A1306 in Dagenham and those in close proximity to the Gores and Wantz Stream water courses, such as in Oval Road North and Burdetts Road, 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).
According to the UK Government's Public Health England, certain parts of Dagenham, including streets such as Oval Road North and Ron Todd Close, 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.
Raised noise levels from cars in Dagenham are at their most pronounced along the path of the A13/Thames Gateway, affecting nearby streets such as Morrison Road and Shaw Avenue. Raised noise levels from railways in the area are most pronounced along the path of the railway line which passes through Dagenham Dock, affecting nearby streets such as Consul Avenue and Lake Road.

Noise pollution combined from road and rail is likely to be at its highest level around where the A13 crosses the railway close to Dagenham Dock station.

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?

Our RICS Surveyor, during a Home Buyers Survey, inspects both the inside and the outside of your property and searches in particular for subsidence, damp, infestations and any cracks or other damage to the property.

The procedure is non-intrusive. It is highly recommended that you get one, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, if you are thinking of buying a property in Dagenham.

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.

Should any issues be flagged up in the Home Buyers Survey, our surveyor will tell you what you need to do to get more in-depth advice on the extent and seriousness of the issue and what needs to be done to remedy it. 

If you are worried about a crack or cracks or indeed any other defects that you think your property in Dagenham has, we strongly recommend you get a Home Buyers Survey as the cost of remedying the problem might snowball into many thousands of pounds further down the line. As an example of the costs, underpinning a property due to subsidence can be upwards of £10,000.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

Many people are not entirely sure about the difference between a mortgage valuation and a HomeBuyers Survey.

Your lender conducts its own valuation on the property in Dagenham you intend to buy to check that it is lending you the right sum of money in relation to the property's value. It is not intended to examine any defects which might affect the property.

When you book a HomeBuyers Survey from us, as well as receiving an independent valuation of the property you wish to buy, the primary focus is to establish whether the property has any issues which you should know about, for example rising damp or subsidence, which might, particularly as time passes, end up requiring even tens of thousands of pounds to put right.


This knowledge is naturally of great use to you, given how much you are intending to spend. You might, on the strength of the information, provided, negotiate with the seller to contribute towards the costs of repairing the defects or even pull out buying the property entirely.

Most importantly, any HomeBuyers Survey is entirely for YOUR benefit and is independent of both your lender - if you are buying with a mortgage - and your vendor. Call 0207 112 5388 to get yours and to help your peace of mind.
