Top tips for a Forest Gate Home Buyers Survey


Forest Gate has many Victorian houses, whether detached, semi-detached or terrace. These can be seen around for example Hampton Road, Osborne Road and Windsor Road. There are also many semi-detached properties built in the early 20th century and onwards.

New developments include Elizabeth Manor in Plaistow, which offers townhouses. Shared ownership properties have been sold in Woodgrange Road.

According to the UK Government's Public Health England, a large part of the area to the west of the Forest Gate locale, in streets such as Atherton Road and Keogh Road, is 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.
A recent Environmental Search for a property in Dorset Road, London, E7 8PS in the Forest Gate area noted that there was a potential risk of surface water flooding within 250m of the property.

Surface water flooding results from rainfall running over ground before entering a watercourse or sewer.
Some properties in Forest Gate are located nearby to existing or proposed sites for wind farms or wind turbines.

A recent environmental search carried out for a property in Whyteville Road, London E7 9LT, for example, flagged up that the property was built within 4km of existing or proposed wind farms or turbines.

The location of wind farms or turbines can be contentious due to visual and auditory impact.

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.

A RICS Home Buyers Survey involves an examination of the structure of the inside and the outside of a property aimed at pinpointing issues such as subsidence, damp, cracks, infestation and damage.

The survey is non-intrusive. If you are thinking of buying a property in Forest Gate, it is highly advisable to book one, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report,.

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 shows up any such problems, our appointed surveyor will explain to you what you should do to get more in-depth information about the type and scope of the matter and what is required to fix it. 

If you are worried about any defects that you think your property in Forest Gate has, we strongly recommend you get a Home Buyers Survey as the cost of remedying the problem might grow to many thousands of pounds as time progresses.

Can I negotiate the price with the seller’s solicitor?

Within the survey report there will be a section for your legal advisor.

If there are any defects spotted at the property that require further attention it will be noted in this section of the report and your solicitor can flag these with in her enquiries.

Should there be any issues raised by your building surveyor that will be costly in the future, you can discuss options with the seller.

It’s typical to negotiate one of two resolutions: either the seller agrees to accept a lower offer price for the property, or they agree to carry out the required repairs as a condition of the sale.

In the latter case, this agreement would usually be confirmed in writing as part of the legal contract.

Make sure that all correspondence regarding negotiations with the sellers is agreed by both solicitors.
