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?

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.

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 the HomeBuyers Survey flags up any of these defects in your property in Dagenham then our surveyor explains what you need to do to get further advice on how to investigate them and get It resolved.

If you are concerned about your property has subsidence, or any other defects then you MUST get a HomeBuyers Survey as the costs for repairing the defects can run into thousands of pounds. If you can identify the defect 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.

What happens if your surveyor finds signs of damp?

If your RICS surveyor flags issues with damp during your defect survey then your next course of action is to contact a damp specialist. The damp surveyor will inspect internal and external walls and floorboards for visible signs of moisture using something called a moisture meter. Finally the surveyor will take a sample of the porous material by drilling into the wall, to see how damp it is.

If you are carrying out the damp survey as part of your due diligence before you buy the property, it is reasonable to ask the seller to cover the costs in your negotiations as the damp will have been worsening during the current owner's tenancy.
