Top tips for a Shenfield Home Buyers Survey


Shenfield has a pleasant mix of properties ranging from the Victorian period right up to the present day. You can, for example, find Victorian properties in Queens Road, plenty of 1930s semi-detached houses and you can find larger detached houses in streets such as Worrin Road and Shenfield Place, some of which are very modern but some which hark back to the early period of the 20th Century.

Shenfield has many houses which were built in the 1930s, particularly around the shopping area in streets such Friars Avenue and Crossways. Shenfield's town centre is in the process of continual redevelopment with modern properties to be seen in the area around Hutton Road, for example.

There are many new build developments in and around Shenfield. There are larger semi-detached properties to be found in Alexander Lane, for example, and pleasant contemporary apartments to be found in Oak House, Crossways.

Essex.pngEssex is not only a coastal county (the North Sea is to its east) but a home county because it touches Greater London on its eastern borders. Its settlements vary from Colchester, which is very historical and used to be the capital of England as Camulodunum, to Southend, a seaside resort, to Basildon, which is a comparatively modern urban development. The western side of Essex hosts many London workers and there are fast rail links to, for example, Shenfield from London Liverpool Street which aid many city workers.

Essex's county town is Chelmsford (and is the county's only city), where Essex County Cricket Club are based. Essex hosts Stansted Airport and attractions such as the Lakeside Shopping Centre, near Thurrock and Epping Forest, a popular forest for camping and other activities. A large proportion of Essex's boundaries are water (the River Thames and the North Sea), the remainder includes Greater London, Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Suffolk. Kent is across the River Thames to the south.

I’m buying a new build property, what survey do I need?

If you are purchasing a new build property in Shenfield you will need to have a snagging survey carried out by a RICS surveyor. This is an independent inspection looking specifically for faults in new build properties such as sealant in showers, cracked tiles and many other areas.

A snagging survey is designed to find out if there are any immediate problems with your new-build home. The surveyor will provide a report to the buyer with a listing of the areas within the new property whereby sub-standard workmanship exists and good practice has not been used and poor finishing’s are evident.

The snagging report can be provided to the developer and you can negotiate to get the works completed prior or after you complete your purchase - who is going to repair the snags should however be agreed prior to completion.
