Top tips for a Grays Home Buyers Survey


Grays town in Essex has some parts in old Victorian chalk pits, particularly large ones include Lion Gorge and Warren Gorge. The Gull lightship in Grays Beach was built in 1860.

Grays' economy has been very much tied in the past to that of the Port of London. Housing therefore developed in the Victorian era – there are surviving properties, particularly terrace houses from then – and in stages in the 20th century.

You can see very modern medium-rise flat block housing nearby to Grays tidal flood floodgates. New developments include Treetops in Dell Road: 1 to 4 bedroom homes, Help to Buy is available, and Saxton Close, where shared ownership terms are available.

Many dwellings in the south of Grays close to the River Thames, such as in Argent Street and Manor Way, 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, some parts of Grays, including streets such as Cresthill Avenue and Langthorne Crescent, 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.
Some properties in Grays are located nearby to existing or proposed sites for solar farms.

A recent environmental search carried out for a property in Longley Mews, Farm Road, Orsett, Grays RM16 3AG for example, flagged up that the property was built within 2km of existing or proposed solar farms.

The location of wind farms or turbines can be contentious due to visual impact.

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 Grays.

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 Grays 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.

I want a survey but the vendor cannot provide access

This is a recurring problem especially with the increase in online estate agents who do not take responsibility for access and rely on the vendors to make themselves available.

On occasion access issues may be due to vendors being away or sometimes simply because they do not want to take time off to allow access for a survey.

Buyers should ensure they complete all their property checks prior to exchange and the RICS survey forms an integral part of these checks.

Delays with vendors providing access can delay the whole conveyancing process. It is important to establish what the issue is to see whether a solution can be found.

If vendors are not available, suggest that the keys are left with the estate agent for collection or alternatively see if the vendor can arrange for a friend or family member to be at the property to allow access.
