Top tips for a Haggerston Home Buyers Survey


Haggerston is an area of East London in Hackney Borough and is technically part of Shoreditch and therefore the East End proper. It grew significantly when the Regent's Canal arrived in 1820. Its northern boundary is Middleton Road, its southern boundary is Hackney Road and contains two major roads running north-south: Queensbridge Road and Kingsland Road.

Haggerston has an interesting mix of Georgian and early Victorian houses, warehouse conversions and new flats alongside social housing estates. Kingsland Basin has new flats and excellent period conversions. Albion Square has semi-detached houses dating from the 1840s, built in yellow or grey brick with stucco detailing and it and the surround streets have many smaller flat-fronted Victorian houses.

New build developments include The City Mills, a development of 760 mixed-tenure homes on both banks of Regent’s Canal; on the south bank it is off Whiston Road and on the north side it sits between Haggerston Road and Clarissa Street; and Mettle & Poise in Hackney Road, the redevelopment of the former Queen Elizabeth Hospital for Children. 

The historic façade is retained but now containing 188 one-, two- and three-bedroom flats, with around 2/3 sold on the open market sale and the remainder sold via shared ownership and rent through a housing association.

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 Haggerston.

Focus and limitations of the HomeBuyer Report

The HomeBuyer Report service is specifically designed for lay people that want a professional opinion at an economic price for the property they are buying. It is, therefore, necessarily less comprehensive than a level 3 building survey.

The focus of the surveyor is on assessing the general condition of the main elements of the property you are buying, and identifying and evaluating the particular features that affect its present value and may affect its future resale. The Building Surveyor's inspection is not exhaustive, and no tests are undertaken. There is, therefore, a risk that certain defects may not be found that would have been uncovered if testing and/or a more substantial inspection had been undertaken. This is a risk that the client must accept.

However, where there is ‘a trail of suspicion’ the surveyor ‘must take reasonable steps to follow the trail’. These ‘reasonable steps’ may include recommending further investigation.
