Top tips for a Ilford Home Buyers Survey


Ilford is a large suburban town in East London which saw accelerated growth when the railway arrived in 1839, which continued into the 20th century. It hosts the large Valentines mansion, which was originally built around 1696.

The area contains Victorian terraces, such as in Sprat Hall Road, Chadwick Road and Grange Road. There are many semi-detached properties built in the interwar period, such as in Caterham Avenue and many new developments, such as the modern flats and houses in Claybury View.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

Our RICS Surveyor, during a Home Buyers Survey in Ilford, 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.

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.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

People, particularly first time buyers, have been known to confuse a mortgage valuation with a HomeBuyers Survey. This confusion can prove costly and end up in a home buyer having to spend money on expensive repair costs which should have been divided up with the seller with this reflected in a reduction in the original sale price. Your lender conducts its own mortgage valuation to calculate the value of the property you are trying to buy in Ilford and this is in no sense a report on structural defects.

A HomeBuyers Survey notes defects as well as including a full valuation of a property independently of the mortgage lender or anyone else. The information in it can be used to get quotes for the cost of fixing any issues and presents evidence for bargaining with the seller about sharing repair costs, if appropriate, or even deciding not to go ahead with buying a property. Call 0207 112 5388 and speak to our experts to book your HomeBuyers Survey.
