Top tips for a East London Home Buyers Survey


East London is located to the north of the lower Thames valley, with the Thames its southern boundary. It is an area which has seen much redevelopment, most notably around the docklands from the 1980s. Barking has large council housing estates built from the 1930s onwards and the East End has many properties going back to the Georgian and Victorian periods.

Much housing was built in the mid-19th century with the expansion of the railway and much social housing was built in the 1920s in Becontree and Harold Hill. The streets around Brick Lane have many period properties.

There are many new housing developments, particularly around the docklands and there are shared ownership developments at Royal Albert Wharf (Gallions Reach), Traders' Quarter (Pontoon Dock), Rathbone Market (Canning Town) and Horizons Tower (Canary Wharf).

Properties in East London built in close proximity to the path of the River Thames, the River Roding and the River Lee and other water courses have been 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 areas of East London, including around Silvertown and the Isle of Dogs (including streets such as Marsh Wall and Mastmaker Road), are in a raised radon area, with properties built there having a higher probability than average of experiencing ground Radon emissions.

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.
Section J1 of a RICS HomeBuyer Report concerns risks to the building that has been inspected.


For a recent HomeBuyer Report for a property in Forest Road, Leytonstone, East London, the surveyor commented on risks such as structural movement, subsidence, dampness, timber decay and trees. They noted, for example, that trees were close to the building and that these can cause damage to buildings and services so they should be regularly pruned to minimise potential damage.

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 East London 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 East London's leasehold flats require only a RICS HomeBuyer Report but for any Victorian conversions, a Building Survey may well be required.
