Home Buyer Survey - CoronaVirus

Top tips for a Silvertown Home Buyers Survey


Silvertown's housing is predominantly from the modern era: it has been continually redeveloped variously because of a notable explosion, the blitz and regeneration schemes.

There are still 'survivals' from the 20th century – landmarks such as Georges (sic) Diner and the Graving Dock Tavern still stand, just about, even if they are disused. Some of the factory buildings still standing date back to the Victorian era such as some of those related to the K-S and W Warehouses and the Tate & Lyle sugar refinery.
Modern developments – and there are many, both already built and in the pipeline – include the riverside Royal Wharf flats development (3,385 units) and the Millennium Mills. /div>

Survey Tip 1

Survey Tip 3

Some properties in Silvertown's area may be subject to the affects of flooding from time to time. 

A recent property conveyancing Environmental Search taken out for a property in Terry Spinks Place, London E16 1YH revealed that it was within 0 - 25 metres of a risk of river and surface water flooding.

The property therefore carries some risk of flood damage and higher insurance premiums required to guard against flooding events.
Although your RICS surveyor does not carry out any in-depth testing of utilities during an inspection for a HomeBuyers Report, they will flag up any suspicions they have given what is visible.

In a recent such report carried out on a property in Western Gateway, London E16 1AR, the surveyor noted that the extractor fan in the bathroom was not working (it was switched on) and that they were unable to find the isolator switch. They advised the client involved that they would have to repair the equipment soon.

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?

A RICS 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, incredibly important when you are considering buying a home in Silvertown.

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 the Home Buyers Survey shows up any such problems, our appointed surveyor will explain to you what you should do to get more in-depth information about the type and scope of the matter and what is required to fix it. 

If you are worried about any defects that you think your property in Silvertown has, we strongly recommend you get a Home Buyers Survey as the cost of remedying the problem might grow to many thousands of pounds as time progresses.

What happens if the conveyancing falls through before the survey takes place will I get a full refund?

If you need to cancel the survey for any reason at all you need to ensure that you have given the surveyor 48 hours’ notice before the survey takes place. If the surveyor has 48 or more hours’ notice then you will be provided with a full refund.

If however you only give the surveyor 24 hours’ notice then there will be a penalty of £50 due to the fact that the surveyor will not be able to fill that slot in time.

If you cancel on the same day as the Survey Date, or any time after the surveyor has attended the property then no refund is due however the report will be delivered in accordance with the terms agreed with the surveyor.
