Home Buyer Survey - CoronaVirus

Top tips for a Wapping Home Buyers Survey


Wapping has seen much regeneration; in the 1980s, developers restored warehouses and converted them into riverside lofts (Wapping Riverside in Wapping High Street is one of the most recently-built examples of these) and many estates consisting of low-rise blocks were built along what was originally dockland waterways.

There are plenty of modern flats in the area and social housing estates, however whole houses are rare. Properties are more value-for-money moving eastwards towards Limehouse.

The Eluna Apartments block in the area offers shared ownership resales and Quatro in Wapping Lane offers shared ownership flats to new buyers.

Most properties in Wapping, such as in the High Street, are subject to flood warnings and alerts from time to time because of the proximity to the Thames to the south as well as the Ornamental Canal running through the area.

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, a large area of Wapping, including streets such as Vinegar Street and Stevedore Street, 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.
Properties in some areas of Wapping are built in designated smoke control areas.

A recent local authority search done for a dwelling in Maynards Quay noted that the property was in such a smoke control area.

Under the terms of Section 20 of the Clean Air Act 1993, smoke emissions from all buildings are prohibited unless an exemption has been made by the Secretary of State under Section 21 of the Act.

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.

What happens if your surveyor is does not inspect an area of the property?

There can be a number of reasons a surveyor might not inspect an area during their survey of a property.

Most commonly it is down to access (or lack thereof) to a certain part of the property (i.e. roof/garage) where a vendor may have forgotten to leave the key used to gain entry to the area in question. Additionally if your surveyor is physically unable to gain access to an area because, for example, there are objects in the way, they will equally be unable to inspect it in the normal way and report back on it.

Your surveyor may agree to return to a property to cover the areas that were missed in the original survey, assuming that steps have been taken to enable them to access the areas in question easily and once a date/time to return has been agreed with the vendor.
