Top tips for a Epping Home Buyers Survey


Epping has many different styles of property, from Victorian and Edwardian cottages and houses to very modern developments. The Great Eastern Railway arrived in 1865, which encouraged London commuters to live there and housing to develop.

Kendal Avenue in particular has large detached houses. In Tower Road, the Arboretum has 149 new build flats and houses (38 affordable) and there are some homes offered under shared ownership. The ex-council houses around Coronation Hill, built in the 20th century, are well built.

Properties in Epping built in close proximity to the tributaries and channels brooks such as Cobbin's Brook and Cripsey Brook, in streets such Stewards Green Road and Coopersale Street, are in areas which are sometimes subject to flood 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).
A recent Environmental Search for a property in Amesbury Close, Epping, CM16 4JA noted that there was a moderate potential for natural ground instability in the area within 50m of the property.

This finding did not necessarily mean that there was a cause for concern in terms of the property's stability: active subsidence depends on local conditions such as the proximity of trees. A house buyers survey is advised to look for signs of property damage that may indicate poor natural ground conditions.
Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the Essex area are at their highest where the M11 and M25 intersect and affects roads nearby to these roads, such as Ivy Chimneys road, Theydon Road and Mount Road.

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 RICS Home Buyers Survey is a visual inspection of the grounds and the internal/external structure of the property and identifies defects such as cracks or damage to the structure of the property, subsidence, damp and infestations.

Some of these defects you may not even see or know what to look for which makes getting a Home Buyers Survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, incredibly important when you are considering buying a home in Epping.

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.
