Top tips for a Newham Home Buyers Survey


Most of the housing in Newham is of the form of terrace houses and flats. Apartments can be found in Lantana Heights which is a contemporary block of flats with 3 bedrooms.

Older properties reside on roads such as Tennyson Road and Thorpe Road. These houses tend to be Victorian terrace houses but many have modern interiors.

Semi-detached and detached properties tend to be slightly outside of Newham, such as those in Forest Gate on Balmoral Road.

Newham is in a flood risk area due to it being situated near the River Thames, the River Lea and the River Roding. Properties on streets such as Prince Regent Lane and Manor Road may be 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).
Due to its central location, Newham has high levels of noise pollution. Main sources of noise pollution are Newham Way (A19), A1020 and Barking Road. The railway line also causes noise pollution for streets like Harold Road and Heigham Road.
According to the UK Government's Public Health England, the south of Newham, including streets such as Fulmer Road and Nottingham Avenue, is 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 3-5% (the percentage is the chance of a property being built where Radon emissions might measure above the action level) in majority of the town, with the north being a potential of 5-10% and the south a potential of 1-3%.

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.

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 Newham, 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.

If your Home Buyers Survey highlights concerns relating to any of these defects your surveyor explains what the issue is in detail and provides a recommendation as to what you should do to further investigate. An example of this is if your surveyor spots signs of damp within the property. Over 5,000 properties a week in the UK have damp proofing laid to combat the issue of rising damp and home buyers fear seeing mould, peeling wall paper and sodden floors as these are all tell-tale signs of rising damp.

If your property is showing these signs and your surveyor notes using their damp monitor that there is damp internally they'll advise you to get a damp specialist to attend the property, confirm the issue advising whether it is rising damp and quote for the costs in repairing with damp proofing.

If you're looking at buying a home in Newham which is showing signs of damp, or any other defects then you MUST get a Home Buyers Survey. The costs for repairing the defects can run into thousands of pounds; however, If you can identify the problem before you purchase then you can get quotes for fixing it and either share the costs with the seller, or, in worst case examples, choose not to proceed.

Don't release your survey report to anyone!

The survey report belongs to you and should be used to support you in the decision of whether to proceed with buying the property at the current asking price.

You should never release the full surveyor's report to the seller or the selling estate agent as it may contain information that could weaken your bargaining position. The best advice is to only release snippets from the report that you are discussing with the seller or are looking to negotiate on.
