Top tips for a Havering Home Buyers Survey


Havering is a borough in East London and its principal town in Romford; other major areas include Hornchurch, Upminster and Rainham.

Romford has Victorian houses close to the town centre, but the predominant housing type is the three-bedroom interwar terrace or semi-detached house, these can be found in the Collier Row and Rise Park.

Romford has plenty of bungalows, such as can be found also in Collier Row. Gidea Park developed as a garden suburb between 1910 and the 1930s. Gidea Park also has a number of houses built in the 1920s/1930s Arts & Crafts style, in roads such as Meadway, Reed Pond Walk and Heath Drive.

Harold Hill has 1950s sturdy council houses which are now largely owner-occupied.

New build developments include Kings Park in Harold Wood which offers 1 and 2-bedroom flats and 3 and 4-bedroom houses.

Local Tip 1
Local Tip 2
Local Tip 3
Properties in Havering which are built close to the Beam River and the Ingrebourne River are in an area where flood alerts and warnings are issued 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).
Properties sometimes have issues with ground stability in certain locations in Havering.

In a recent environmental search, taken out for a property in Hornchurch, Porchester Close, the report noted that there was a moderate potential for natural ground instability within 50m of the property.

This should not be taken to mean that the property in question actually suffered/suffers from subsidence however as "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."

Properties in some areas of Havering are built in designated smoke control areas.

A recent local authority search done for a dwelling in Hornchurch, Porchester Close noted that the property was in such a smoke control area.

Under the terms of Section 20 of the Clean Air Act 1993, smoke emissions from all buildings are prohibited unless an exemption has been made by the Secretary of State under Section 21 of the Act.

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 Havering 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.
