Top tips for a Hackney Home Buyers Survey


Hackney has some excellent Georgian houses around Clapton Square and the streets around St John's churchyard. Around Hackney Central and London Fields you can find many flat-fronted Victorian terraces. Hackney Wick on the other hand has lots of modern warehouse conversions.

New developments include; The Fishers in Mentmore Terrace – a seven-story block with 1 and 2-bedroom flats; Great Eastern Building in Reading Lane which offers shared ownership and The Coachworks in Andre Street – 1, 2, and 3-bedroom flats.

Dwellings in some areas to Hackney's east, such as in Hackney Wick and Hackney Marsh, if they are built very close to the River Lea or the River Lea navigation, such as in Osborne Road and Lindisfarne Way, 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).
Overhead lines and phone masts can be contentious and may have a visual impact on the surrounding area.

A recent Environmental Search stated that a property in Mildmay Park, London, London, N1 4PE, was within 250m of overhead power lines or mobile phone masts.
A recent Environmental Search for a property in Mildmay Park, London, London, N1 4PE, stated that the dwelling 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.

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 identifies many different defects or potential risks that can be found within a property and is an essential part of any home buying process.

The survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is completed by a Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) registered surveyor so they are fully trained to provide you with the detail you need to buy your home.

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 your Home Buyers Survey highlights concerns relating to any of these defects your surveyor explains what the issue is in detail and provides a recommendation as to what you should do to further investigate. An example of this is if your surveyor spots signs of damp within the property.

Over 5,000 properties a week in the UK have damp proofing laid to combat the issue of rising damp
and home buyers fear seeing mould, peeling wall paper and sodden floors as these are all tell-tale signs of rising damp.

If your property is showing these signs and your surveyor notes using their damp monitor that there is damp internally they'll advise you to get a damp specialist to attend the property, confirm the issue advising whether it is rising damp and quote for the costs in repairing with damp proofing.

If you're looking at buying a home in Hackney which is showing signs of damp, or any other defects then you MUST get a Home Buyers Survey.

The costs for repairing the defects can run into thousands of pounds; however, If you can identify the problem 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.

I want a survey but the vendor cannot provide access

This is a recurring problem especially with the increase in online estate agents who do not take responsibility for access and rely on the vendors to make themselves available.

On occasion access issues may be due to vendors being away or sometimes simply because they do not want to take time off to allow access for a survey.

Buyers should ensure they complete all their property checks prior to exchange and the RICS survey forms an integral part of these checks.

Delays with vendors providing access can delay the whole conveyancing process. It is important to establish what the issue is to see whether a solution can be found.

If vendors are not available, suggest that the keys are left with the estate agent for collection or alternatively see if the vendor can arrange for a friend or family member to be at the property to allow access.
