Top tips for a Highams Park Home Buyers Survey


Highams Park is a predominantly residential area, with housing consisting of mainly Victorian and 1930s terraced houses. 

There are modern shared ownership developments in the area, such as Repton House in Jacks Way.

Properties in Highams Park which are built close to the (River) Ching, such as in Hale End 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).
Properties in some areas of Highams Park may be affected by overhead power lines or mobile phone masts.

A recent environmental search carried out for a property in Hillyfield revealed that there were overhead power lines or mobile phone masts located within 250m of the dwelling.

Overhead power lines and phone masts can be contentious and additionally may have a visual impact on the surrounding area.
Properties sometimes have issues with ground stability in certain locations in Highams Park.

In a recent environmental search, taken out for a property in St. Andrew's Road, the report noted that there was a moderate potential for natural ground instability within 50m of the property.

This should not be taken to mean that the property in question actually suffered/suffers from subsidence however as "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."

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 in Highams Park, 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, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is non-intrusive.

How long does the survey take?

The time necessary to carry out a survey is relative to each property. Naturally a 6 bed, old Victorian property will take longer to survey than a newly built 1 bed flat as there’s more ground to cover and more defects to look out for. A conservative estimate of around 2 hours can be used as a rough guideline, however the surveyor will spend as much time in the property as necessary in order to make sure all present defects are commented on.

The building surveyor must spend an appropriate amount of time at the property so that they can provide the complete scope of work set out by the RICS for the HomeBuyer Report and the Building Survey.
