Top tips for a Dalston Home Buyers Survey


Dalston is a district of northeast London in Hackney Borough. The area has seen rapid gentrification in recent years. Hackney has leaped to becoming London's 6th most expensive borough having overtaken Richmond.

There are many pretty pretty, flat-fronted early Victorian villas and terraces, mid-Victorian terraces, converted industrial buildings, estates of social housing and new flats in the area.

You can find fine early Victorian semi-detached villas in Albion Square and Albion Drive; London Fields has terraces of flat-fronted early Victorian houses and Parkholme Road has later Edwardian houses. 

Fasset Square has terraces of bow-fronted Victorian houses and a modernist German hospital which has been converted into flats. There are many Right to Buy flats also in low-rise council blocks.

New build developments include Dalston Curve – 106 flats in 2 buildings on opposite sides of the road – and FiftySevenEast, a 15-storey block with 1, 2 and 3-bedroom flats.

Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the Dalston area accompany the main junction linking Dalston Lane, Balls Pond Road and Kingsland High Street (Kingsland High Street going north is the main noisy thoroughfare.
The British Geological Survey has assessed the area of search as having moderate potential for natural ground instability. This does not necessarily mean there is cause for concern in terms of the property's stability. 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. A house buyers survey is advised to look for signs of property damage that may indicate poor natural ground conditions.

A recent Environmental Report stated that a property on the road of Raddon Tower, Dalston Square, London, E8 3GN, was within 50m of an area with potential for natural ground instability.
When a RICS surveyor carries out either a building survey or a homebuyer report they will switch the lights on and off but not test the electricity further. If they suspect there is a problem that needs rectifying they will advise you to consult an electrician.

A local electrician within the Dalston area is Sparks R Us, 27 Navarino Rd, London E8 1AD.

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 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 is non-intrusive. If you are thinking of buying a property in Dalston, it is highly advisable to book one, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report,.

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 Dalston 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.

When should you order a survey?

The right time to book a survey is specific to each client’s situation. Generally speaking, it is recommended to book your survey for around a week after your mortgage valuation takes place. This way, if your lender is happy to proceed you are then on track and don’t have the stress of searching for a surveyor to attend your property at the last minute. Inversely, if your mortgage lender comes back and declines your application after the valuation, you then have breathing space to cancel the survey without fear of incurring cancellation charges.

If it is the case that you have concerns in regards to the condition of the property (be it subsidence or damp etc.) and feel that it will impact on what you are prepared to offer or whether you are even willing to proceed with the purchase, you may decide to book it in before your mortgage valuation in order to minimise costs in an already expensive process.
