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.

London.pngGreater 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?

A RICS Home Buyers Survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, non-intrusively inspects both the external and internal structure of a property for matters which include these, among others; damp, subsidence, infestations, cracks and damage.

If you are thinking of buying a property in Newham, it is vitally important to book a Home Buyers Survey for your peace of mind.

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 Newham 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.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

Many people are not entirely sure about the difference between a mortgage valuation and a HomeBuyers Survey.

Your lender conducts its own valuation on the property in Newham you intend to buy to check that it is lending you the right sum of money in relation to the property's value. It is not intended to examine any defects which might affect the property.

When you book a HomeBuyers Survey from us, as well as receiving an independent valuation of the property you wish to buy, the primary focus is to establish whether the property has any issues which you should know about, for example rising damp or subsidence, which might, particularly as time passes, end up requiring even tens of thousands of pounds to put right.


This knowledge is naturally of great use to you, given how much you are intending to spend. You might, on the strength of the information, provided, negotiate with the seller to contribute towards the costs of repairing the defects or even pull out buying the property entirely.

Most importantly, any HomeBuyers Survey is entirely for YOUR benefit and is independent of both your lender - if you are buying with a mortgage - and your vendor. Call 0207 112 5388 to get yours and to help your peace of mind.
