Top tips for a Harlow Home Buyers Survey


Harlow was originally built as a new town, from 1947 and property was predominantly therefore built from that period onwards. The Lawn, the first modern-style residential tower block, was built in 1951 and is now a listed building.

There are some notable architectural features in Harlow such as Frederick Gibberd's tromp-l'oeil terrace in Orchard Croft and Dawbarn's maisonette blocks at Pennymead.

There are many estates of detached, semi-detached and terrace houses in and around the area and some estates have been substantially redeveloped so the housing has been built in the last 10 or 20 years. There is a large provision of social housing.

Properties in Harlow which are built near the River Stort or Canons Brook, such as in Fold Croft, 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 parts of Harlow, including streets such as Kerril Croft and Hobtoe 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.
Properties in some areas of Harlow may be affected by environmental constraints.

A recent environmental search carried out for a property in Fennells, Harlow CM19 4RW revealed that the property was within 250m of an area likely to be impacted by environmental constraints. These included Hospital/Risdens Woods, designated as Ancient and Semi-Natural Woodland; Parndon Woods & Common, designated as a Local Nature Reserve and Harlow Woods, designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest.

Areas which have been designated as having environmental or historical importance may impose constraints on property or land developments or alterations.

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