Top tips for a Tower Hamlets Home Buyers Survey


Tower Hamlets is home to Canary Wharf which has some of the highest buildings in London. One Canada Square is the second tallest building at 235m, the first being the Shard. This means most of the housing within Canary Wharf consists of high-end, modern flats such as those in the Baltimore Wharf development and the Equinox Building. Other than flats, terrace houses reside on Tredegar Square and Cold Harbour. Older detached properties can be found on Union Drive and Grand Union Terrace.

As Tower Hamlets is on the River Thames, streets within the borough are sometimes subject to flood alerts and warnings. This includes most of Canary Wharf and streets such as Stainsbury Road and Cotall Street that are close to the Limehouse Cut canal.

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).
Tower Hamets is in a very central location and so is in an area of raised noise pollution. The primary sources of the noise pollution are the A1261, Burrdett Road and the A11. Streets such as Wellington Way, Locksley Street and Newby Place may be affected.
According to the UK Government's Public Health England, the south of Tower Hamlets, including streets such as Poplar High Street and Cable Streets, is 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.

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.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

It is a common misconception that a mortgage valuation is a HomeBuyers Survey and this can leave home buyers exposed to high repair costs that could have been negotiated with the seller. A mortgage valuation is conducted by the lender’s surveyor to assess the value of the property and they do not provide a detailed report on structural defects.

A HomeBuyers Survey details defects and includes a full appraisal of the property independently to anyone else including the mortgage lender. You can use the information to obtain quotes to fix any defects and gives you the evidence to potentially share the costs with the seller.


Most savvy buyers make sure they get a HomeBuyers survey from an independent surveyor to make sure the property they are buying is free from defects. Call us on 0207 112 5388 to get the best HomeBuyers survey for your property in Tower Hamlets.
