Top tips for a Woodford Home Buyers Survey


Woodford is essentially a series of villages in northeast London spread out along Woodford New Road, the High Road, Woodford Green and Chigwell Road, embracing South Woodford, Woodford Green, Woodford Wells and Woodford Bridge.

It has a few grand period houses from the days when Woodford was more rural and the province of a few wealthy City merchants, but it mainly has a mix of Victorian, Edwardian, and Twenties and Thirties detached, semi-detached and terrace houses, along with new-build flats.

Manor Road's listed Victorian former Claybury Hospital has, for example, been converted into 850 new flats and houses and Centurion Court in The Drive has 10 new 2-bedroom flats. There are 294 homes in the converted Walthamstow Stadium in Chingford Road of which 99 are being sold as shared ownership.

There are large Victorian houses in Broomhill Road and Monkhams Estate has detached and semi-detached Edwardian and 1920s houses.

Properties in Woodford which are built in close proximity to the River Roding, in streets like Snakes Lane East and Glastonbury Avenue, 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).
A recent Environmental Search for a property on Oak Hill Gardens, Woodford Green, Essex, IG8 9DY, is 250m of an area that is likely to be impacted by environmental constraints. This means that there may be constraints on property or land developments or alterations due to areas which have been designated as having environmental or historical importance;.
Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the Woodford area mainly centre around the main road – M11, impacting roads and streets such as Canfield Road and Gaynes Hill Road.

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?

Our RICS Surveyor, during a Home Buyers Survey, inspects both the inside and the outside of your property and searches in particular for subsidence, damp, infestations and any cracks or other damage to the property.

The procedure is non-intrusive. It is highly recommended that you get one, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, if you are thinking of buying a property in Woodford.

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.

Should any issues be flagged up in the HomeBuyers Survey, our surveyor will tell you what you need to do to get more in-depth advice on the extent and seriousness of the issue affecting your property in Woodford and what needs to be done to remedy it. 

If you are worried about a crack or cracks or indeed any other defects that you think your property has, we strongly recommend you get a Home Buyers Survey as the cost of remedying the problem might snowball into many thousands of pounds further down the line.

Is a mortgage valuation a Building Survey?

When you purchase a home in Woodford using a mortgage your Mortgage Lender will require you to get a mortgage valuation to assess how much your property is actually worth. You have to pay for this survey and often you may assume this is also a structural assessment to identify defects. Unfortunately the mortgage valuation is just for the mortgage lender which means you need to get your own independent survey of the property to make sure there aren't any defects.

There is some confusion as the mortgage valuation is often referred to as a survey and so many buyers assume this is what is meant by 'have you done your survey?' It is important that when buying a property in Woodford you arrange your own HomeBuyers Survey that reports on defects or potential issues with the property. The two types of HomeBuyers Survey to choose from are the HomeBuyers Report or the Building Survey. Buying without a survey could leave you exposed to any repair costs or defects that you didn't spot. The costs of underpinning a property due to subsidence run into the £10,000s so it is important to get a survey to check for this type of defect particularly.
