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.

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 involves an examination of the structure of the inside and the outside of a property.

Choosing the right survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, to get is important however both a HomeBuyers Report and a Building Survey will identify any suspicions of the main defects discussed below.

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.

If the Home Buyers Survey flags up any of these defects in your property in Barking then our surveyor explains what you need to do to get further advice on how to investigate them and get It resolved. 

If you are concerned about your property has any other defects then you MUST get a RICS Home Buyers Survey as the costs for repairing the defects can run into thousands of pounds.

If you can identify the defect before you purchase then you can get quotes for fixing it and either share the costs with the seller, or, in worst case examples, choose not to proceed.

Can a RICS surveyor comment on the removal of a load bearing wall?

If the seller has removed a wall, or you are planning to remove a wall in the property then a RICS surveyor cannot definitively confirm if the wall is or is not load bearing because their inspection is only visual.

The surveyor may give their opinion, however it will come with a caveat that you should obtain an intrusive assessment to confirm.

Before the removal of a load bearing wall, you should always instruct a local structural engineer in Barking to provide their definitive opinion on if the wall is or is not a load bearing wall.
