Top tips for a Romford Home Buyers Survey


Romford has an historic market place (going back to the 13h century) and property prices have risen there on account of the building of the Crossrail station. Many new developments are currently being mooted for the town such as modern tower blocks and possibly two riverside residential quarters on the banks of the River Rom.

Romford's housing development accelerated in the Victorian period and then much more so in the 1930s. You can find streets of Victorian houses near the town centre, however 3-bedroomed semi-detached properties and terrace homes built in the interwar period are in greater numbers.

You can find bungalows (both detached and semi-detached) around Collier Row. You can find houses built in the Arts & Crafts style in Meadway, Reed Pond Walk and Heath Drive and well-built 1950s council homes in Harold Hill, many of which have been bought under Right to Buy.

Survey Tip 1

Survey Tip 2

Survey Tip 3

Dwellings in Romford which are built in close proximity to the River Rom, such as in Brooklands Lane and Riverside Close, 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).
A recent Regulated Local Authority Search for a property in Pretoria Road, Romford, RM7 7BB, noted that the property was in a local authority area that will be affected by the Crossrail route.

More information about this can be accessed via the Crossrail portal
A recent Environmental Search for a property in Hathaway Gardens, Romford, RM6 5TL noted that there was a moderate potential for natural ground instability in the area within 50m of the property.

This finding did not necessarily mean that there was a cause for concern in terms of the property's stability: active subsidence depends on local conditions such as the proximity of trees. A house buyers survey is advised to look for signs of property damage that may indicate poor natural ground conditions.

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 Home Buyers Survey is a visual inspection of the grounds and the internal/external structure of the property and identifies defects such as cracks or damage to the structure of the property, subsidence, damp and infestations.

Some of these defects you may not even see or know what to look for which makes getting a Home Buyers Survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, if you are considering buying a property in Romford, incredibly important.

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.

The Home Buyer Survey will report on issues found, however you need to make sure that you choose the right Home Buyer Survey for your property because some defects require further detail and this is best served by booking a Building Survey.

You can find a local RICS surveyor by using the search at the bottom RHS of this page.

Does the surveyor climb onto the roof of the property?

The surveyor carries with them a ladder that allows them access to areas above head height. Due to Health and Safety, a RICS surveyor is not allowed to go higher than 3 meters.

The surveyor will use powerful binoculars to inspect the roof of a property to see signs of damage to the roof, tiles, chimney, soffets and fascias.

Flat roofs can be inspected from opening a window in the property and looking out to view the same.

If there is a need for a closer inspection of the roof, then scaffolding will be required to be obtained to allow safe access to the roof. It is very rare for this type of survey to be completed during the purchase of a property.
