Top tips for a Poplar Home Buyers Survey


Poplar is an area of East London known not least because ex-Prime Minister Clem Atlee was its mayor.

It was heavily bombed during the war and many surviving period properties were wiped out, although there are still small enclaves of Victorian terrace houses, such as can be found around All Saints and St Matthias Churches.

Woodstock Terrace has excellent early Victorian three- and four-storey flat-fronted houses off Poplar High Street.

The Lansbury Estate was built in 1951 and Chrisp Street Market came from this time, which remains one of London's best street markets. Balfron Tower, a brutalist high-rise block built in 1967, is being redeveloped into luxury flats.

New build developments include New Providence Wharf on the Thames opposite the O2 arena, and London City Island, on a bend in the River Lea as well as Aberfeldy Village, an ongoing rebuilding of the Aberfeldy Estate in East India Dock Road, which is set to provide a further 1,000 homes.

Survey Tip 1

Survey Tip 2

Survey Tip 3

Many of Poplar's properties are in an area where flood warnings and alerts are issued from time to time, such as in Brown Street and Lodore Street.

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).
According to the UK Government's Public Health England, some parts of Poplar, including streets such as Shirbutt Street and Dingle Gardens, are 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 1-3% (the percentage is the chance of a property being built where Radon emissions might measure above the action level).

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.
Wind energy is one of several alternative energy sources; however, location of wind farms or turbines can be contentious due to visual and auditory impact on the surrounding area.

A recent Environmental Search stated that a property located on Bartlett Close, London, E14 6LH, is within 4km of existing or proposed wind farms or wind turbines.

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.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

When you buy a home with a mortgage your Mortgage Lender requires you to get a mortgage valuation to assess how much your property is actually worth. You have to pay for this survey and often you may think this is also a structural assessment to identify defects. Sadly the mortgage valuation is just for the mortgage lender which means you need to get your own independent survey of the property that's caught your eye in Poplar to make sure there aren't any defects.

There is some confusion as the mortgage valuation is often referred to as a survey and so many buyers assume this is what is meant by 'have you done your survey?' It is important that when buying a property in Poplar that you arrange your own HomeBuyers Survey that reports on defects or potential issues with the property. The two types of HomeBuyers survey to choose from are the HomeBuyers Report or the Building Survey. Buying without a survey could leave you exposed to any repair costs or defects that you didn't spot. The costs of underpinning a property due to subsidence run into the £10,000s so it is important to get a survey to check for this type of defect. Get your HomeBuyers Survey - call 0207 112 5388.
