Top tips for a Barking Home Buyers Survey

Barking has been chosen for a massive regeneration project called Barking Riverside, the development of a brownfield site south of the town centre. It is set to deliver a massive 10,800 in the next 15 years or so.

The town has plenty of 1930s semi-detached and terrace houses, as can be seen on the Leftley Estate and Faircross Estate. Westrow Drive and Cavendish Gardens on the Leftley Estate have some larger 4 to 5 bedroom family homes.

There are plenty of modern flat blocks in the area and there are many new developments such as Hart Place in Bevan Avenue (3 and 4-bedroom houses) and Caspian Quarter off Galleons Drive, where Help to Buy is available.

Dwellings in areas to Barking's east, particularly those close to the River Roding, and immediate south, such as in roads like Movers Lane, Jenkins Road and King Edward's Lane, 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 locations in the vicinity of Barking, including streets such as Windgate Road and Hickley Road, 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.
Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in Barking are at their highest along the A406/North Circular Road, affecting nearby streets such as Hertford Road and Fleet Road.

Railway noise pollution is caused by the trains which pass through Barking Station, which is a major interchange (overland and tube (District/Hammersmith & City) lines), affecting nearby streets such as Anne Mews and Wakering Road.

Pollution from these two forms is likely to be at its highest where the A406 and railway lines intersect.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A Home Buyers Survey is completed by a qualified RICS surveyor and delivers a visual inspection of the property in Barking and the surrounding garden. The aim of the survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is to identify potential risks or defects that you may not know are there such as cracks or damage to the structure of the property, subsidence, damp and infestations.

Level 2 HomeBuyer Report with a Valuation

A HomeBuyer Report, also known as a Home Buyers Survey, is generally suitable for:

  • Bungalows
  • Flats
  • Standard construction houses

The majority of Barking's leasehold flats require only a RICS HomeBuyer Report but for any Victorian conversions, a Building Survey may well be required.
