Top tips for a Stratford Home Buyers Survey


Housing in Stratford is set to expand rapidly, with more than 11,000 new homes set to be built in the next two decades on and around the site of the former 2012 London Olympic Park. Architecturally it already benefits from two unique Olympic-related buildings, namely Anish Kapoor's Orbit tower and Zaha Hadid's London Aquatic Centre.

East Village, formerly the Athletes' Village, is steadily being converted into 2,818 homes, mainly for rent but with some offered under shared ownership. There are additionally two modern residential tower blocks being built.

Stratford has many existing Victorian terrace houses such as in Vaughan Road. Victorian cottages can be found in Manbey Grove. The Chobham Manor development has more than a quarter of its homes being sold as affordable homes.

Large areas of Stratford are in the flood plain of the River Lea and other water courses include WaterWorks River and City Mill River. Properties built close to these water courses, such as in Warton Road, 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).
According to the UK Government's Public Health England, some areas of Stratford in East London, including streets such as Faringford Road and Elliot Close, 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.
Some properties in Stratford are located nearby to existing or proposed sites for wind farms or wind turbines.

A recent environmental search carried out for a property in Manbey Street for example, flagged up that the property was built within 4km of existing or proposed wind farms or turbines.

The location of wind farms or turbines can be contentious due to visual and auditory impact.

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, if you're thinking of buying a property in Stratford, 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.

If the Home Buyers Survey flags up any of these defects then our surveyor explains what you need to do to get further advice on how to investigate them and get It resolved. 

If you are concerned about your property in Stratford has subsidence, or any other defects then you MUST get a Home Buyers Survey as the costs for repairing the defects can run into thousands of pounds. If you can identify the defect before you purchase then you can get quotes for fixing it and either share the costs with the seller, or, in worst case examples, choose not to proceed.

What is included in a Building Survey?

The Royal institute of Chartered Surveyors provides guidance on what you can expect to have included in your survey report.

The main areas included in the inspection are assessments for signs of subsidence, testing for damp, a review of drains and a loft and roof space inspection.

Checks are also made to identify any signs of asbestos or infestation which may require further specialist checks.

Utilities are assessed and any recommendations made if any concerns about age and condition are identified.

Testing of equipment cannot be carried out as tests can only be carried out by qualified specialists such as plumbers or electricians based locally in Stratford.

The surveyor provides recommendations in the legal section of the report which should be passed to the legal adviser carrying out the conveyancing to ensure any necessary enquiries are raised with the vendor’s solicitor.
