Top tips for a Tottenham Home Buyers Survey


Tottenham is a district of North London, in Haringey Borough, which developed more than 1,000 years ago along the sides of Ermine Street, an old Roman road, now the A10.

It has a large number of Victorian terrace houses and there are still a number of Georgian houses scattered around the route of the A10.

The Tower Gardens Estate between Lordship Lane and Henningham and Gospatrick Roads, was built by the London County Council between 1904 and 1911 and was the first garden suburb, containing Arts & Crafts and Queen Anne-influenced cottages.

The Clyde Circus conservation area between West Green Road and Philip Lane is an enclave of Victorian semi-detached and terrace houses, some of which were erected to demonstrate the work of individual builders. Clyde Circus itself is a circle of Edwardian terrace houses.

The Broadwater Farm Estate, subject of much notoriety and tragedy, has been largely redeveloped and is now much more highly regarded.

New build developments include Lawrence Square in Lawrence Road at the junction with West Green Road, a development of 264 one-, two- and three-bedroom flats and four-bedroom townhouses, including 53 affordable homes, and Elgin Place in the High Road, close to White Hart Lane, which is a development of 30 one-, two- and three-bedroom flats.

Survey Tip 1

Survey Tip 2

Survey Tip 3

Properties in Tottenham which are built in close proximity to the River Lea, in streets such as Asplin Road and Manor Road, are in areas where flood warnings and alerts are issued 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).
Properties sometimes have issues with ground stability in certain locations in Tottenham.

In a recent environmental search, taken out for a property Portland Road in Tottenham, N15 4SY, 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 Tottenham, including streets such as Portland Road and Pelham Rd, 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.

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 Tottenham.

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.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

Many people are not entirely sure about the difference between a mortgage valuation and a HomeBuyers Survey.

Your lender conducts its own valuation on the property in Tottenham you intend to buy to check that it is lending you the right sum of money in relation to the property's value. It is not intended to examine any defects which might affect the property.

When you book a HomeBuyers Survey from us, as well as receiving an independent valuation of the property you wish to buy, the primary focus is to establish whether the property has any issues which you should know about, for example rising damp or subsidence, which might, particularly as time passes, end up requiring even tens of thousands of pounds to put right.


This knowledge is naturally of great use to you, given how much you are intending to spend. You might, on the strength of the information, provided, negotiate with the seller to contribute towards the costs of repairing the defects or even pull out buying the property entirely.

Most importantly, any HomeBuyers Survey is entirely for YOUR benefit and is independent of both your lender - if you are buying with a mortgage - and your vendor. Call 0207 112 5388 to get yours and to help your peace of mind.
