Home Buyer Survey tips for buying in Stoke Newington


Stoke Newington is in north/northeast London in the northwest of Hackney Borough. Historically, its core is Church Street, which was where the original hamlet was based around. Clissold House was built at the end of the 18th century.

Stoke Newington has roads of mainly two- and three-storey Victorian houses, particularly south of Church Street, for example in Dumont Road. Many period properties have been converted into flats.

Gibson Gardens, off Northwold Road, is a Victorian development of tenement flats and houses in a tucked-away gated spot.

There are ex-council/right to buy homes on the Stamford Hill Estate, including Malvern House, Quantock House, Wicklow House, Sidlaw House, which broadly consist of flats.

New build developments include the refurbishment of the Woodberry Down Estate where there are 1 and 2-bedroom flats.

Raised levels of noise pollution from roads and railways in the Stoke Newington area accompany where the railway crosses Stamford Hill/A10 at Stoke Newington Station, also affecting roads such as Manor Road and Belfast Road.

Properties sometimes have issues with ground stability in certain locations in Stoke Newington.

In a recent environmental search, taken out for a property in Stoke Newington Church Street, the report noted that there was a moderate potential for natural ground instability within 50m of the property.

This should not be taken to mean that the property in question actually suffered/suffers from subsidence however as "active subsidence will be dependent on local conditions, such as the proximity of trees or areas where trees have been removed, which require an inspection of the site to identify the nature of the ground on which the property is built."

Properties in various parts of Stoke Newington, including streets such as Stoke Newington Church Street and Albion Road , may well be affected by the Crossrail and HS2 schemes.

If you are buying a property in the area and this is of concern to you, you may well wish to consider purchasing an Energy & Infrastructure Report. or a report specific to either of the two rail schemes mentioned.
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.

How long does your survey take?

We book the earliest possible slot for your RICS surveyor to carry out their inspection for your RICS home buyers survey. Then, on the day, they visit the property and inspect all accessible areas, concentrating on signs and suspicions of defects and issues.

The actual time your surveyor takes over the inspection varies with each property – you can imagine that one for a small flat for a HomeBuyers Report will normally take less than one for a large mansion for a Building Survey. It is likely to be anything between 1 ½ hours to 3 hours.

SAM Conveyancing's RICS surveyors call you on the day of the inspection after carrying it out to go over any major concerns and findings and then they complete the report and return it to you within 5 working days.
