Top tips for a Barkingside Home Buyers Survey


Barkingside is a district of Ilford in northeast London. Some of the oldest buildings in Barkingside include the Barnardo's chapel, the underground station, opened in 1903, which was originally an Edwardian railway station, and Holy Trinity Church, which dates from 1840.

The construction of the Eastern Avenue in 1925 encouraged southward expansion towards Gants Hill and the absorption of Mossford Green and Fullwell, where new facilities were added after the Second World War. Green-belt legis¬lation prevented post-war expansion east of the railway, which became part of the Central line in 1948.

Houses are predominantly interwar detached, semi-detached and terrace houses. New build developments include the Garden Village development, which consists of apartments and family houses.

Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the Barkingside area mainly centre on Cranbrook Road/High Street and the streets immediately adjoining.
A recent Environmental Search has shown that a property in Barnardos Garden Village, Barkingside, Redbridge IG6 1QG, was within 50m of an area with potential for natural ground instability.

The British Geological Survey has assessed the area of search as having moderate potential for natural ground instability. This does not necessarily mean there is cause for concern in terms of the property's stability. Active subsidence will be dependent on local conditions, such as the proximity of trees or areas where trees have been removed, which require an inspection of the site to identify the nature of the ground on which the property is built. A house buyers survey is advised to look for signs of property damage that may indicate poor natural ground conditions.
Properties in some areas of Barkingside may be affected by surface water flooding.

A recent environmental search carried out for a property in in Tanners Lane, IG6 1QG revealed that there was a potential risk of surface water flooding within 250m of the dwelling.

Surface water flooding results from rainfall running over ground before entering a watercourse or river. If you are buying a property with a mortgage, when your main property searches are returned, they may advise that you get an additional Flood Risk Report (click to find out more).

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 is a visual inspection of the grounds and the internal/external structure of the property and identifies defects such as cracks or damage to the structure of the property, subsidence, damp and infestations.

Some of these defects you may not even see or know what to look for which makes getting a Home Buyers Survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, if you're thinking of buying a property in Barkingside, incredibly important.

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 Barkingside 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.
